Shopify, an e-commerce solutions and API provider, has recently announced several updates to its Partner and Checkout APIs that are intended to protect merchant privacy while also providing access to a robust collection of data that ensures improved productivity for partners.
With updates to the Partner API program, the company is providing GraphQL API access to App event, Earning, and Experts Marketplace Job data. Previously this data had only been available through the partner dashboard, an availability that limited programmatic access to the data. The company has updated its documentation to reflect these additions and provide developers with further detail on integration capabilities.
As for developers who have been utilizing the Checkout API, it is important to note that the API will no longer be providing the amount of inventory remaining when checkouts are created or updated. The company has imposed this restriction in order to ensure that merchant data is not compromised.
