Build your own Sell-powered applications

Getting started

Getting started with Zendesk Sell

In this article, we touch on some of the most important features in your Sell account that you can explore in your free 14-day trial, or when you are getting started with Sell.


To make the experience of using the Sell API v2 even more pleasant, we released pre-built client libraries for many major programming languages.

Make your first call

Here is a step-by-step guide on how to make your first request to the Sell API. We will provide your authentication details by returning a token using your login credentials.

Sync API

The Sync API lets you connect to the Sell synchronization layer, in the same way our mobile devices do, which allows them to keep their local data up to date with Sell.

Search API

Search API provides access to Sell’s read layer. It exposes two ways for accessing data:

  1. JSON search API with rich and powerful Query language
  2. GraphQL API for querying company information alongside with Company Hierarchy data


The Firehose API delivers a continuous stream of data from Sell in near real-time, enabling high volume data integrations and event-driven workflows within Sell or other business systems.

Build apps for Sell

A Zendesk app is a small web application installed in the agent interface that extends the functionality of Zendesk Support, Chat, or Sell. Visit Apps for information on how to get started and follow a step by step guide on building your first Chat app.
