Hello, 

 

I'm trying to build a mobile app using nodeJS and express for my Shopify store. I'm new to all this and I'm having trouble figuring out with the documentation if it's possible with the Shopify APIs.

I've read the documentation for building a Shopify app using react: https://developers.shopify.com/tutorials/build-a-shopify-app-with-node-and-react

But, I don't know if I have to use the same logic for a native mobile app. Can anyone help me with this ? Or guide me to the appropriate documentation for what I aim to do?

Thank you,

Hey @Abbab123 ,

 

If you would like to build a custom mobile app storefront for your Shopify store (i.e. build your own custom front-end experience outside of the Shopify online store), you should look into our Storefront API: https://help.shopify.com/en/api/storefront-api

 

The purpose of the Storefront API is that it allows developers to build customized shopping experiences for customers. There are also many libraries and SDKs that Shopify has built using the Storefront API, which could help you with your project: https://help.shopify.com/en/api/storefront-api/tools

 

Particularly, you can look into using the Javascript Buy SDK for building a custom website experience, as well as the iOS Mobile Buy SDK for building custom iOS app for your store and the Android Mobile Buy SDK for building a custom Android app for your store. 

 

Finally you can look into Buy Button and BuyButton.js, which can also be used to help merchants sell their Shopify products on custom websites by letting them place "Buy Buttons" onto their sites in which customers can purchase the products with. Buy Button and BuyButton.js are both built on top of the previously mentioned Javascript Buy SDK
