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.
Savvy shoppers know it often takes some looking around before you find the best price. It's the same with online shopping, but with so many retailers at your fingertips, where do you even begin? That's where a tool like Idealo is pretty helpful. It's an online price comparison service that lists over 300 000 products from over 14 000 retailers across the UK. The Idealo API allows e-commerce sellers to create and update product and price listings on the service.
It's time to start shopping around for another API to search for deals, prices and reviews. That it, if you use the Yahoo Shopping API (our Yahoo Shopping API profile). On March 11 Yahoo's service will be discontinued, replaced by a "strategic partnership" that will leave developers sniffing for deals elsewhere.
Under the rubrick of what it calls a "Sales Channel SDK," Shopify has launched a series of APIs so that developers can build new sales channels that Shopify's merchants can then use to extend the visibility of their catalogs. The company also announced new partners who will be using those APIs.
