Best practices to start using the Outshifter GraphQL API for Channels.
First and foremost:
  • In order to get started, you need to request access to register an Outshifter Channel account.
  • On the Outshifter platform, you can choose which Suppliers and products you will be working with and build up your product Catalog.
Once you´re set up we recommend you to:
  • Familiarize yourself with our architecture structure. If you want to use the GraphQL API, you will need to learn how to interact with the Outshifter dashboard.
  • See the endpoint documentation. We have detailed explanations for how to retrieve product data, use the checkout, create an order etc.
  • Use the playground. This will help you understand and better decide what you need for your use.
