Content API in Merchant Center

A custom icon for Merchant Center Next articles

If you're looking for information about Content API in the classic Merchant Center experience, click here.

The Content API for Shopping allows apps to interact directly with the Merchant Center platform, vastly increasing the efficiency of managing large or complex Merchant Center accounts. The Content API for Shopping can be used to manage your Merchant Center configuration, act as an input source for your product data, and provide reporting. Learn more about getting started with Content API for Shopping.

Note: If you plan to upload a large number of feeds or make frequent changes to your product data, it is strongly recommended that you upload this directly using the Content API.

Debug API errors

Errors with your API requests can prevent your store from reaching online customers. To diagnose and fix errors with your API requests, access the “API calls” tab. Learn more about Debugging API errors with API calls.

Note: The API calls screen isn’t available by default. To make this available, turn on the “API calls” as an add-on. Learn more about activating add-ons in Merchant Center.
