Unauthenticated Shopify API

8 0 1

I am looking for a basic unauthenticated API for my clients store. We are integrating a checkout into a desktop application and require that no keys be shown. We are not going to use the storefront API due to chances of it being show. We required a limited scope checkout API. an API to add a product via variant to cart and then to submit checkout information. Thank you!

The Storefront API is an unauthenticated API. The use case for the API is to power storefront actions. The Storefront Access Token is designed to be exposed on the client-side and does not have the same access to your store like an API Key / Password in an authenticated API.
