Register Your App

Registering your app with Hip eCommerce gives you your API key and allows you to start working on your app.

When your app is created, it starts with Provisional Access to our production systems to use during development.

Provisional Access

Provisional Access includes the following:
  • Read access to any public, unauthenticated resources such as Stores and Listings.
  • Authenticated read/write access to data belonging to the member who created the application. This includes reading data like Sales (Orders) as well as creating, editing or deleting a Store's Listings.
To Register Your App, and obtain a Provisional Access API Key, Contact Us and provide a brief overview of your intended usage.

Full Access

Full Access includes additional privileges:
  • Authenticated read/write access on behalf of additional members (who grant your application permission to act on their behalf).
If your application doesn't need the indicated additional privileges, then you are welcome to use your app in provisional mode indefinitely.
If you do want full access for your application, first use your Provisional Access to get everything working, then Contact Us for further information.
