Hello @krish115 

When you make a request to the products API in Shopify, you can retrieve up to 250 products at a time. But what if you want to fetch more products? That's where pagination comes in.

Shopify uses cursor-based pagination, which means you can use a special parameter called "page_info" to navigate through the results. When you send a GET request to the products API, along with the products themselves, you receive additional information in the response headers. One of these header parameters is "page_info."

To fetch the next set of products, you need to take note of the "page_info" value from the headers. This value acts as a key to access the next page of results. In the case of Shopify, you can use the "next" relation to indicate that you want to fetch the next page of products. By setting the "limit" parameter to 250, you can specify the number of products you want to retrieve per page.

Check this screenshot for your reference : https://prnt.sc/l01zxyGoRdAj

Let's break down the process with an example:

(1) First, you make a request to the products API with the following URL:

 

https://admin.shopify.com/store/test-store/products.json?limit=250

 

In the response headers, you will find the "page_info" parameter.

(2) To fetch the next page of products, you construct the URL like this:

 

https://admin.shopify.com/store/test-store/products.json?limit=250&page_info=<page_info>

 

Here, you replace <page_info> with the actual value of the "page_info" parameter you received.

(3) You repeat this process of retrieving the "page_info" from the headers and using it to construct the URL for the next page until you have fetched all the desired products.

If you're interested in learning more, I recommend checking out the detailed documentation on pagination in Shopify's API: Link to Documentation.

I hope this explanation helps you understand how to use pagination in Shopify's API. Feel free to ask if you have any further questions!

Hello @Krish115 

As per our previous message

 

"When you send a GET request to the products API, along with the products themselves, you receive additional information in the response headers. One of these header parameters is "page_info."

It means you only have to hit the Product API and you will get page_info in the headers, You can use readymade libraries or curl to work with API.

Hello @krish115,

 

Greetings! I am Gina from the flareAI app helping Shopify merchants get $6Million+ in sales from Google Search, on autopilot.


To fetch all the products from a Shopify store when the API only allows retrieving a maximum of 250 products at a time, you can use pagination. Pagination allows you to retrieve data in smaller chunks or pages.


Here's how you can do it:


1. Get the count of total products via API
2. From the product count, calculate how many loops you have to paginate to cover all products, 250 products per page
3. Make subsequent requests to fetch the next page of products.
4. Repeat steps 2 and 3 until you have fetched all the products


Refer to this blog for example.


Let me know if you have any questions.
