Instacart Developer Platform API

Use the Instacart Developer Platform API to integrate a shopping experience into your applications and websites. For example, you can create a shoppable recipe for a main meal, or you can create a shopping list to help people start a new diet plan.


Instacart Developer Platform API is built for app developers. If you are a retailer who wants to add Instacart fulfillment capabilities to your e-commerce site, see Instacart Connect APIs.
