My store will be selling custom jewelry, individual to each customer. This design process will generate a unique image of the piece. I would like the Checkout generated to use this unique image (unique to each customer, each sale).
I know I can create a new product using the admin API, but would really rather use the frontend API.
Is it possible to create a product or attach a custom image to one) specific to the customer not using the admin API, as this code would be in my public front-end and ... well, you know, that is the very reason there is a separate admin API.
Any hope? Thanks, jb
Solved! Go to the solution
Hi sjz and Michael Theodore.
I generate my own cart outside of Shopify, so I can put my custom image in there without breaking a sweat.
The admin API does the trick for the checkout, creating the endless stream of products I need. It's the only way I found to have an image for the checkout, which is the thing I need.
Scaling is not really a problem for me, as Shopify needs the product to exist in order to show an image even in the customer's order email, which might be viewed well in the future. I figure that if the number of products overwhelms me, I can zap old ones en masse once a year.
