About Fynd Platform Extensions

What is Fynd Platform Extension?

An extension is a piece of software that offers additional features on top of the existing ones. Merchants are the end-user of Fynd Platform; therefore, any additional requirements from merchants can be created independently. Such a piece of software can be installed or uninstalled as and when required.

The purpose of creating extensions is to create delightful shopping experience for the customers, and at the same time, to improve the seller experience. The developer of the extension can make it access the company data and sales channel information if required.


Relation of Extensions with Fynd Platform

Extensions can do the following actions:

  • Consume Fynd Platform APIs to read and write the data of the sales channel
  • Add new features and functionalities to the Fynd Platform account
  • Enhance the display of information for the customers


Understanding the Public and Private Extensions

The Fynd Platform offers two types of extensions: public and private.

Public extensions are available to all the sellers using the platform and can be easily installed from the extension marketplace. These extensions are created either by Fynd developers or third-party developers and have undergone a rigorous review process to ensure that they meet the quality standards set by Fynd. Public extensions can be used to add a variety of functionalities to your shopping website, such as social media integration, conversion tracking, and analytics tools.

Private extensions, on the other hand, are custom extensions created specifically for a single seller or a limited number of sellers. These extensions are not available in the extension marketplace and can only be installed upon request. Private extensions are ideal for businesses that require specific, customized functionalities that are not offered by public extensions.

Ultimately, whether you are looking for a smooth way to enhance your shopping website or you need custom functionality, Fynd Platform offers both public and private extensions to meet your needs. Choose the type of extension that best fits your business requirements and take your shopping website to the next level with Fynd.
