I would like to develop the app in php for shopify which will allow user to customize the products like tshirts and all.

So anyone tell me whixh API should I have to use from API reference which is given in  https://help.shopify.com/api/reference.

I am using https://github.com/cmcdonaldca/ohShopify.php library for aurhentication stuff.

Thanks in advance..

Hey Santoor,

This answer would depend on what customisation needs to be done. It's quite possible that you don't need the API at all, and would just need to build a product customisor into the theme code.

Knowing your needs would help the forum members give advice here.

If you needed to create a custom product dynamically (so something that can't be done with just theme code alone) you'd want to look into the Product API.

Hey Json,

Thanks for the reply.

I appreciate for your reply.


I need only one button in product detail page of storefront (before add to cart button)

How can I add that? 

Using php is that possible?

What the other way to achieve the same?
