Please also refer directly to this documentation Creating Products From Template.

  1. Create a product template. Log in to your Gelato dashboard and navigate to the "Templates" page. On this page, you can create a product template that contains all the necessary information about variants, mockups, details, and pricing for your products.

  2. Customize your template. Access the "Editor" page within your chosen template. Optionally, add a new image layer to your template. You can also rename it as needed. Ensure that the layer name is unique, as it will be used as a placeholder in the API calls.

  3. Set mockups, details, and pricing. Set the product mockups, details, and prices within your template. Save your template to preserve the changes you've made.

  4. Copy template ID. On the "Templates" page, locate the template you've created. Copy the Template ID from the UI.

  5. Use the Gelato APIs. Utilize the Template ID to send a request to the Get Template API. This API call will provide you with a list of product variants along with image placeholders. Make API calls using the image placeholders to the Create Product API. This API will immediately generate a new product and continue with the creation and publication of variants and mockup images in the background.
