Setup your credentials

First of all, you have to get API keys for your store, you can find it in your store Edit page. To get there navigate to the stores list page, click on the Edit button next to your store name, scroll down till you find the API Keys section.

Initialize the library

With the API key in hand, you can initialize the Tradenity client. Tradenity client needs the API key and an instance of SessionTokenStore which is an object that makes Tradenity session integrates with the web framework’s session mechanism. The Java SDK provide the interface and a default implementation suitable for single user application (such as android app). The Spring SDK extension provide implementation suitable for Spring and Grails. It’s easy to implement your own for other frameworks, It is a simple 3 method interface.


TradenityClient client = new TradenityClient('sk_xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx')

Make sure to replace the api keys with the ones for your store, otherwise you will get authentication error

Make your First call

The Tradenity SDK is organized into a group of model entitiy classes that corresponds to the REST API’s resources, each encapsulate the operation for a specific entity model, for example to perform operations related to the Brand resource you can use the corresponding tradenity.sdk.entities.Brand class.

Now, just call any method in your code.


Brand brand = brandService.findById("1243-9786786-jhgjtu-789s6i");
