Throughout this guide, the API URLs and code samples continue to refer to Moltin.
If you’re new to eCommerce APIs as a concept or you’re not sure how to evaluate what makes a good one, we recommend reading our eCommerce API 101 guide.
The API follows a microservice architecture that enables you to plug commerce into any part of your application. The API is built on the JSON API specification, follows predictable REST URLs and supports cross-origin resource sharing.
We have a two-track authentication layer that enables destructive and non-destructive actions across projects. All requests require an accompanying
API key that is associated to users on your team.
If you do not have an account, project, and API key and you want to evaluate Commerce Cloud, please contact us. We would be happy to get you setup.
See the Developer Guide for help with the following topics:
