Wix API – How to update a product using Postman

In Wix API, you can update multiple product information at the same time by using Postman. This is a reason, Beehexa will show you how to update a product efficiently and quickly.

If this is the first time you make a call in the Postman, you must generate API credentials from the Wix Developers website.

Step 1: Generate API credentials from the Wix Developers’ Website.

Follow the process in Wix API: How to get an access token and refresh the access token? to know how to access Wix API. 

  • After creating an app, remember the access token and the refresh token to send requests in the Postman. 

Step 2: Refresh the access token using Postman. 

Wix’s access token is only valid for 5 minutes, so you need to use the refresh token to request a new access token.

Flow these steps below for refreshing the access token. 

  • Log in to your Postman and create a new workspace.
  • Create a new POST with this URL:
https://www.wix.com/oauth/access
Code language: JavaScript (javascript)

  • Go to “Store Products”.
  • Click on “Products”.
  • Then choose the product that you want to update the information on. 
  • Finally, copy the ID in the URL.

In this case, the product_ID=df19c1f7-07d8-a265-42f8-e8dfa824cc6e

We are ready to update a product using Postman with Wix API. 

  • Log in to your Postman and create a new workspace.
  • Create a new PATCH with this URL:
https://www.wixapis.com/stores/v1/products/{product.id}
