How to Use the Shopify Create a Product API Endpoint

To use this API endpoint, a POST request should be made to the `/admin/api/2023-01/products.json` URI with a payload containing the product details in JSON format. The request must also include an access token for authentication purposes.


    POST /admin/api/2023-01/products.json
    {
        "product": {
            "title": "New Product",
            "body_html": "Great new product!",
            "vendor": "Vendor Name",
            "product_type": "A product type",
            "variants": [
                {
                    "option1": "First",
                    "price": "19.99",
                    "sku": "123"
                }
            ]
        }

An example response from Shopify after creating a product might look something like this:


    HTTP/1.1 201 Created
    {
        "product": {
            "id": 1071559580,
            // other product details
