Introduction

Moltins Philosophy

Commerce continues to grow, yet the way online stores are created hasn’t changed in years. Traditional platforms require specialised developers and result in thousands of un-billable hours through ongoing support and maintenance.

Created for developers by developers, we’ve removed the shackles of the legacy systems, we let you build whatever you want, however you want to build it. We provide a modern REST API that allows you to add a wide range of eCommerce features into any website or application. Rapidly make API calls and bind returned data to display to your customers.

This approach brings the benefits of a traditional downloaded platforms and cloud based solutions whilst avoiding many drawbacks. We’re able to maintain integrations with third parties and keep your store running. You can forget about everything else, we handle database and eCommerce logic so you can concentrate on building great customer experiences.

How Moltin works

We’ve taken the traditional eCommerce software and broken it down into its constituent pieces via a restful API. We store your data securely in our cloud infrastructure so you can access it easily and quickly using secure OAuth2.

Our infrastructure is built on AWS.

The Forge

We offer a user management panel called The Forge. The Forge gives you the ability to manage your store, inventory, settings and more. You can use your login details to access The Forge here:
