API

Last Updated: Mar 19, 2014 02:40PM MDT

Our read-only API returns variables in JSON or XML format so that you can embed your store data on an external website or use it in a custom application or service.

Usage

You can use the API to access certain variables by accessing different URLs in your store and adding either .json or .xml to the end. Note: both .js and .json will return JSON format, but we recommend using .json.

All URLs must be in the format of:

  http://api.bigcartel.com/{yoursubdomain}/{method}.{format}

For example:

  http://api.bigcartel.com/mystore/products.json
