Access Shopify API from an External App
I am trying to access the Shopify API from an external app that I am building (mobile). For example, I would like to access this API:
Of course I would need to authenticate my request first. So far everybody I asked (including Shopify support), suggested that the only way to access the data is through a Shopify App.
Can you suggest a way to do this?
I have found the answer. Follow these steps if you want to access the Shopify API from an external app:
- Login to your store as an admin
- Go to Apps
- Create a Private App
Use the following pattern with every URL you create (I am using this to get all the orders)
The API Key and the password appear in your private app info page.
