Selecting products to sell

The first step to building out your Rye integration is to identify what products you would like to sell. At this stage, you don’t need to worry about any technical details.

For each product you want to sell, you’ll need to record the URL the product is located at alongside the URL of the store. Compile this information into a format that your technical implementation team will be comfortable working with. If you don’t have a file format in mind, then our recommendation is to use a CSV file with the following structure:

Product URLStore URL

Once you have compiled this list of products you are ready to move on to the next step.

Picking the right API(s)

Rye offers two different APIs depending on your use case: the “Sell Anything API”, and the “Sync API.”

For new integrations, we generally recommend starting out with the Sell Anything API as it enables you to build out your integration without needing to build a relationship with any merchants. The Sell Anything API works with every marketplace Rye supports, which makes it a reliable option. Down the line it is always possible to incrementally shift to the Sync API if you decide it’s a better fit for you and your business.

Below you can find a decision tree to help you determine which API is the best choice for your use case.

Once you have chosen which API(s) your integration will use, you can move on to the next step where you’ll begin syncing over product data. Navigate to the appropriate guide by clicking on the API name below.
