What is Violet?

Violet is the layer that connects merchants looking for new distribution channels with the developers who are building them. Traditionally if a developer wanted to add native e-commerce to their app they would be required to integrate with all of the e-commerce platforms their desired merchants were on. Violet solves this problem. We perform the heavy lifting by integrating with all of the major and longtail e-commerce platforms and normalize that data into a single schema. This means that with Violet you will only ever need to integrate with a single API. Best of all, the Violet API is headless. This means you can add a truly native checkout experience to any application you're building. There's no clickout, ever.


Be sure to check out the API Reference to learn more about using the API.
