The JS Buy SDK is a lightweight library that allows you to build ecommerce into any website. It's based on Shopify's Storefront API and provides the ability to retrieve products and collections from your shop, add products to a cart, and checkout.

Full API docs are available here.

Installation

With Yarn:

$ yarn add shopify-buy

With NPM:

$ npm install shopify-buy

CDN:

There is a minified UMD build available via CDN (see the Changelog for details about the latest release):

<script src="http://sdks.shopifycdn.com/js-buy-sdk/v2/latest/index.umd.min.js"></script>

You can also use a specific release version:

<script src="https://sdks.shopifycdn.com/js-buy-sdk/1.11.0/index.umd.min.js"></script>

You can also fetch the unoptimized release for a version (2.0.1 and above). This will be larger than the optimized version, as it will contain all fields that are available in the Storefront API:

<script src="https://sdks.shopifycdn.com/js-buy-sdk/2.0.1/index.unoptimized.umd.min.js"></script>

Builds

The JS Buy SDK has four build versions: ES, CommonJS, AMD, and UMD.

ES, CommonJS:

import Client from 'shopify-buy';

AMD:

import Client from 'shopify-buy/index.amd';

UMD:

import Client from 'shopify-buy/index.umd';

UMD Unoptimized: This will be larger than the optimized version, as it will contain all fields that are available in the Storefront API. This should only be used when you need to add custom queries to supplement the JS Buy SDK queries.

import Client from 'shopify-buy/index.unoptimized.umd';

Examples

Initializing the Client

import Client from 'shopify-buy';

const client = Client.buildClient({
  domain: 'your-shop-name.myshopify.com',
  storefrontAccessToken: 'your-storefront-access-token'
});

Fetching Products

// Fetch all products in your shop
client.product.fetchAll().then((products) => {
  // Do something with the products
  console.log(products);
});

// Fetch a single product by ID
const productId = 'Z2lkOi8vc2hvcGlmeS9Qcm9kdWN0Lzc4NTc5ODkzODQ=';

client.product.fetch(productId).then((product) => {
  // Do something with the product
  console.log(product);
});

Fetching Collections

// Fetch all collections, including their products
client.collection.fetchAllWithProducts().then((collections) => {
  // Do something with the collections
  console.log(collections);
  console.log(collections[0].products);
});

// Fetch a single collection by ID, including its products
const collectionId = 'Z2lkOi8vc2hvcGlmeS9Db2xsZWN0aW9uLzM2OTMxMjU4NA==';

client.collection.fetchWithProducts(collectionId).then((collection) => {
  // Do something with the collection
  console.log(collection);
  console.log(collection.products);
});

Creating a Checkout

// Create an empty checkout
client.checkout.create().then((checkout) => {
  // Do something with the checkout
  console.log(checkout);
});

Adding Line Items

const checkoutId = 'Z2lkOi8vc2hvcGlmeS9Qcm9kdWN0SW1hZ2UvMTgyMTc3ODc1OTI='; // ID of an existing checkout
const lineItemsToAdd = [
  {variantId: 'Z2lkOi8vc2hvcGlmeS9Qcm9kdWN0VmFyaWFudC8yOTEwNjAyMjc5Mg==', quantity: 5}
];

// Add an item to the checkout
client.checkout.addLineItems(checkoutId, lineItemsToAdd).then((checkout) => {
  // Do something with the updated checkout
  console.log(checkout.lineItems); // Array with one additional line item
});

Updating checkout attributes

const checkoutId = 'Z2lkOi8vc2hvcGlmeS9DaGVja291dC9kMTZmM2EzMDM4Yjc4N=';
const input = {customAttributes: [{key: "MyKey", value: "MyValue"}]};

client.checkout.updateAttributes(checkoutId, input).then((checkout) => {
  // Do something with the updated checkout
});

Updating Line Items

const checkoutId = 'Z2lkOi8vc2hvcGlmeS9Qcm9kdWN0SW1hZ2UvMTgyMTc3ODc1OTI='; // ID of an existing checkout
const lineItemsToUpdate = [
  {id: 'Z2lkOi8vc2hvcGlmeS9Qcm9kdWN0Lzc4NTc5ODkzODQ=', quantity: 2}
];

// Update the line item on the checkout (change the quantity or variant)
client.checkout.updateLineItems(checkoutId, lineItemsToUpdate).then((checkout) => {
  // Do something with the updated checkout
  console.log(checkout.lineItems); // Quantity of line item 'Z2lkOi8vc2hvcGlmeS9Qcm9kdWN0Lzc4NTc5ODkzODQ=' updated to 2
});

Removing Line Items

const checkoutId = 'Z2lkOi8vc2hvcGlmeS9Qcm9kdWN0SW1hZ2UvMTgyMTc3ODc1OTI='; // ID of an existing checkout
const lineItemIdsToRemove = [
  'Z2lkOi8vc2hvcGlmeS9Qcm9kdWN0Lzc4NTc5ODkzODQ='
];

// Remove an item from the checkout
client.checkout.removeLineItems(checkoutId, lineItemIdsToRemove).then((checkout) => {
  // Do something with the updated checkout
  console.log(checkout.lineItems); // Checkout with line item 'Z2lkOi8vc2hvcGlmeS9Qcm9kdWN0Lzc4NTc5ODkzODQ=' removed
});

Fetching a Checkout

const checkoutId = '2U4NWNkYzI4ZWEyOTdlOD9rZXk9MDVjMzY3Zjk3YWM0YWJjNGRhMTkwMDgwYTUzOGJmYmI='

client.checkout.fetch(checkoutId).then((checkout) => {
  // Do something with the checkout
  console.log(checkout);
});

Adding a Discount

const checkoutId = 'Z2lkOi8vc2hvcGlmeS9Qcm9kdWN0SW1hZ2UvMTgyMTc3ODc1OTI='; // ID of an existing checkout
const discountCode = 'best-discount-ever';

// Add a discount code to the checkout
client.checkout.addDiscount(checkoutId, discountCode).then(checkout => {
  // Do something with the updated checkout
  console.log(checkout);
});

Removing a Discount

const checkoutId = 'Z2lkOi8vc2hvcGlmeS9Qcm9kdWN0SW1hZ2UvMTgyMTc3ODc1OTI='; // ID of an existing checkout

// Removes the applied discount from an existing checkout.
client.checkout.removeDiscount(checkoutId).then(checkout => {
  // Do something with the updated checkout
  console.log(checkout);
});

Expanding the SDK

Not all fields that are available on the Storefront API are exposed through the SDK. If you use the unoptimized version of the SDK, you can easily build your own queries. In order to do this, use the UMD Unoptimized build.

Initializing the Client

// fetch the large, unoptimized version of the SDK
import Client from 'shopify-buy/index.unoptimized.umd';

const client = Client.buildClient({
  domain: 'your-shop-name.myshopify.com',
  storefrontAccessToken: 'your-storefront-access-token'
});

Fetching Products

// Build a custom products query using the unoptimized version of the SDK
const productsQuery = client.graphQLClient.query((root) => {
  root.addConnection('products', {args: {first: 10}}, (product) => {
    product.add('title');
    product.add('tags');// Add fields to be returned
  });
});

// Call the send method with the custom products query
client.graphQLClient.send(productsQuery).then(({model, data}) => {
  // Do something with the products
  console.log(products);
});
