Merchants have products stored in their e-commerce platforms. We want to make those available to Channels easily and directly. Once a Merchant has onboarded and connected to your Violet Application, you will be able to access their products and facilitate checkout on their behalf.

In test mode, including while working through our Guides, you will see test merchants you didn’t know or connect to yourself. That’s okay. These sandbox merchants are connected to test stores on real ecommerce platforms. Though the merchants won’t be familiar, the experience of viewing and getting merchant info will be the same as in production.

The Violet Merchant APIs allow you to view information about the various merchants that are integrated with Violet and that your application has access to. The available APIs are as follows:

Get Merchants your Violet app has access to

GET /merchants

Get Connected Merchants

POST /merchants/search

Get Merchant details for a given merchant ID

GET /merchants/{merchant_id}
