Frequently Asked Questions

We've compiled a list of answers to common questions about our API.

Order Desk provides an API for programmatic access to your store’s data. The Order Desk API is a RESTful API that accepts and returns JSON. You can use the API to pull order status, add orders, add shipments, and retrieve inventory items.

Of course! We observe all modern security protocols and regularly monitor PII storage and anonymization.

Not at all! If you do decide to build to our API, please reach out to us so we can work together on creating the best experience for our mutual customers.

Maybe! We receive requests to build hundreds of different integrations annually and typically roll out 30-50 per year. Building your own integration via the Order Desk API will allow your business to develop this connection at your own pace.

If you would like to request that we build an integration to your business, please do so here. It may take a few weeks to a few months to review your request, depending on volume.
