Is it at all possible to use Shopify API to make a purchase for items from sites such as Amazon, Etsy, eBay etc.? 

Or the only option is having the inventory in house?


Thanks a ton

Hi @michalanger,


I think your question is if the Shopify APIs can automatically purchase products to then list for sale on your shop? No the Shopify APIs cannot interact with other platforms.  You would need to use the APIs of those platforms in order to make purchases.  Alternatively you could look into solutions that are already built such as product sourcing apps on the Shopify App Store.
