This is the official Python library made for Shopify users to access the admin functionality of their accounts for use in building 3rd party applications. It was developed and is currently supported by Shopify. It provides a similar interface as does the Shopify Ruby Gem. All API usage happens through Shopify applications; shop owners can create applications for themselves through their own admin. Developers are given functionality across articles, assets, customers, events and more. The API uses a RESTful interface and responses are formatted in XML and JSON.
Open data platform Factual continues its expansion into the local market. The new "monetize API," as the company is calling it, helps connect developers--and their users--to coupons, table bookings and other referrals to local places. The developer, in turn, gets a cut of whatever Factual earns from the deal. The addition to the Factual Places API comes with four launch partners, including the two most popular daily deal websites.
The app55 API lets online and bricks and mortar merchants in the UK take payments from customers on any device, on websites designed and controlled by the retailer. app55 joins 362 payment APIs in our directory. In addition to offering one click, being fully brandable (meaning the customer sees your site only, and is not aware of app55's role), all of the stiff PCI compliance issues that make handling these transactions so complex is outsourced through them.
