Today, I am happy to announce that we released our API. It means that any web store can now enrich their ROBIN customer service dashboard with e-commerce data, regardless of the e-commerce platform they’re using.

ROBIN is an online customer service dashboard made for web store teams. We help them provide better and faster customer service, in less time.

Developers who wish to use the API to build a connection between an e-commerce platform and ROBIN can request an API key and API secret (password) via the ROBIN support site.

And that’s what I’d like to share with you in this post. But first ...
