Printify API Use Cases
If you have multiple stores (even in the 100s) and thus receive a lot of order traffic, you can direct it so that you can process these orders, and ensure that they are fulfilled.
If you have a lot of designs and products that you wish to publish simultaneously instead of doing it manually, then this is the way to go.
Product Information Export
Currently, Printify does not offer an option to download and analyze product data. Through the API, however, this is possible.
Frequently Asked Questions
What is an API?
According to IBM the API definition is:
“An Application Programming Interface, or API, enables companies to open up their applications’ data and functionality to external third-party developers, business partners, and internal departments within their companies.
This allows services and products to communicate with each other and leverage each other’s data and functionality through a documented interface.”

Who can use an API solution?

Can I use the API to connect to a marketplace you don’t support?

Can Printify integrate the API to my website, for me?

I generated a Printify API token. Where do I put it?
