Completely open REST API for seamless integration and endless extensibility.

The Znode API is a completely open set of REST endpoints from which nearly anything can be built on top of the Znode eCommerce platform. From the shopping cart checkout process to creating administrative reports, it includes rich querying and filtering capabilities that allow you to request as much or as little data as you need.


Easily build and integrate anything on top of the Znode eCommerce platform with our Headless API

The Znode eCommerce platform is in the form of a headless engine, which is made possible by the REST API. The API wraps around the main engine and core eCommerce libraries, giving you a robust and easy-to-consume layer to build and integrate nearly anything on top of the Znode eCommerce platform.


The Znode provider engine makes extensibility, customization and integration easy.

Within the Znode eCommerce platform is a set of libraries we call the provider engine. The provider engine is one of the main areas for extensibility and is an important part of any customization and integration effort. 

Conceptually, the provider engine surrounds the shopping cart, thus forming the heart of the Znode eCommerce platform. The components of the provider engine act on data within the shopping cart to handle the following processes and calculations: 

  • Payments
  • Promotions
  • Shipping
  • Suppliers
  • Taxes
