An API, or Application Programming Interface, allows different applications to easily exchange data and services, without its users needing to understand the technical details. Your Design Pickle API token is a code that serves as a unique identifier for your Design Pickle account.

The code may look like gibberish, but it's your new best friend to automate your workflow.

  1. Head to Settings > My profile

  2. You will see a section labeled Client API Token. The code underneath is your API Token

Exclusive to our Pro, Premium, and Power plan subscribers.

1. Automate your workflows through Zapier

With the help of your API Token, you can use Zapier to submit design requests for you automatically!

For example, you can use Zapier to connect Google Sheets and Design Pickle so that every time you create a new row in Google Sheets, it sends a new request to your designer.

2. Use our API documentation to make it your own

If you’re tech-savvy, check out our API documentation here, which you can use to build Design Pickle functionality into your own application.

Example: In your application, you can create a similar form to our form at and customize it to match your branding so your clients can get started with submitting requests to your Design Pickle designer.

Step 1:

Log in to Zapier, and create a new Zap with Design Pickle for one of the applications. In this example, I'm connecting Asana to Design Pickle.

Step 2:

Click the Design Pickle section, and Zapier will prompt you to connect an account. Under "Choose Account," you'll want to select Add a New Account. When you click this option, a pop-up window will appear:

Step 3:

Add your API token to the text field, and hit "Yes, Continue" - your API token will be connected, and you're ready to start Zapping!
