The Walgreens Developer Program allows you access to tap into the large and growing number of Walgreens stores, products, and more! Including the ability to print photos for same-day pickup, refill prescriptions, and clip coupons.
MIME, a leading personalization engine for cosmetics and skincare, has integrated with our Digital Offers API. Within their iPhone App, Flawless™ by MIME, users can take a photo of any color that inspires them and the app will match the shade. Users can also take selfies and find their perfect foundation match. Once a product is found, users can purchase directly on Walgreens.com or pickup in-store within the same day* – all while earning Balance Rewards points.
“It has been a pleasure working with the Walgreens engineering team,” says MIME founder Chris Merkle. “The Walgreens team clearly understands their customer journey and they have created their API platform to support that path. For a complex integration like this with an enterprise brand, integrations can take months. Together we integrated and went live in just a few weeks. We look forward to growing our partnership with Walgreens and their amazing team.”
Currently the Walgreens integration is available inside of the Flawless™ by MIME iPhone app only; the Android version is in development and will go live soon. What’s next for future development? The MIME team hopes to reward their users by offering cash back on purchases made through their apps.

We wanted to hop back onto our blog to introduce Thunder Bunny Labs a new integration of our Photo Prints API. They have launched their new Map Maker feature which helps you build an amazing photo map of the 50 US states on their website with your photos inside the frame of any state!
With the 50 States Photo Map from Thunder Bunny Labs you can create a one-of-a-kind conversation piece using your own photos from around the USA. Their innovative design allows you to fill the map over time, so whether you are a lifelong traveler or just beginning your adventure you will always remember where you are going and where you have been. Filling up your map is now easier than ever thanks to integration with the Walgreens Photo Prints API. Simply upload your photos into the virtual map, adjust the size and position if you wish, and have them printed directly to a Walgreens near you. The prints will fit perfectly into your map so you can spend less time worrying about cropping and print settings and more time planning your next vacation!
It's that time of year again where we like to reach out to our awesome community of developer to gather feedback on our API Program.
In the interest of improving our program we want to gather your feedback about our API Program and API product catalog. It only takes about 5 minutes to fill out and massively affects how we set our roadmap for the next year. You can access the survey here: https://goo.gl/forms/PybBNJAlILTNsF1y1
Hello, we have an important update for the API program and wanted to let everyone know about them beyond just a mass email:
Migration of Revenue Share Portal:
If you have been connected with us for a while you are well aware of the wagapireports.com portal for viewing your revenue share. As we strive to enhance our revenue share line(s) of business under our API portfolio our next step is to migrate our partners to Commission Junctions full platform. If you created your PublisherID on wagapireports.com for photo revenue share you will need to follow the steps below:
Three key benefits to you in doing so:
Opens up your revenue opportunities and scalability
Reporting, management and optimization tools provide a robust experience that allow more control
Benefits of the network effect will grow your Business exponentially
Two key events to anticipate:
Update your app's PID
One month’s payment may be delayed depending on when you update your PID
Once registered you will need to go to the menu: Account >> Websites
Create a new website by providing a Name, and URL, Category, and Description.
Once added you will see a number on-top of the words “Active” that is your new PublisherID
Your new PublisherID will need to be incorporated into all your apps in a new build. We’ll help provide any testing or validation services that need to be conducted to ensure continuity. We’d be more than happy to jump on a call to discuss in more detail, simply let us know.
We plan to decommission the old portal and any old publisherID’s by: January 1st, 2019 giving you about 3 months to migrate over to a new publisherID. If you do not migrate over to a new publisherID by 1/1/2019 you app will no longer be receiving revenue share for any orders you create. Also, if you have already migrated over to Commission Junctions full platform you can ignore this update.
We are pleased to announce a new integration of our Photo Prints API by previous integrator, Rainhut Inc. They have launched the new Rain Cards App for quickly creating beautiful greeting cards for any occasion and it is now live in the Apple App Store. You can get more info here: www.raincards.com

The Walgreens API Team has been hard at work as we approach the holiday to get some very exciting news launched on our developer portal. We wanted to give you all a few updates to our API platform.
We are extremely happy to let everyone know about the awesome feature enhancements and new APIs that we are rolling out by the end of this January 2018:
Photo Prints HTML Checkout:
We have been working diligently on some backend upgrades to our HTML Checkout Photo Prints API. Keep looking for these changes as we have more news coming over the next month. We have converted over to a NodeJS backend which should provide for a faster loading and snappier mobile web page experience.
Store Locator API:
Last year we announced the Beta Store Locator API. We are overjoyed to see all the people that have started/finished integration of this API their application(s). We got feedback that you wanted a way to get all the store numbers for all the Walgreens stores. Well, we listened and you can now use the Store Number List Endpoint to get this data.
Add To Cart API: (beta)
We are also excited to give access for everyone to create Walgreens.com Carts in their applications! Allowing your users to take advantage of creating a new cart directly in your user experience and navigating them checkout on walgreens.com! This API is in beta and we look forward to seeing it grow as the community adopts it. The documentation for this API is public now on the developer portal: Add To Cart API
We hope all this information is a nice gift for the upcoming holidays! Check back later for more information, and as always, if you have any comments, questions, and/or concerns please send an email to: firstname.lastname@example.org
We're very excited to see one of our top Balance Rewards Healthy Choices (BRhc) API Partners, Lifesum top the charts as "App of the Day" on the 1st day of the new iOS 11 App Store.

The PICLIF (https://piclif.com/) mobile app and Web site allows families and funeral homes to display pictures and memories of a loved one during a funeral service and to easily print the photos at Walgreens. PICLIF helps families bring together memories of their loved one by allowing them to crowdsource pictures from family and friends, building a timeline that can be viewed on any smartphone or computer.
"Our integration with Walgreens allows friends, family, and funeral service attendees to print pictures to Walgreens and keep them forever," said Mike Stafiej, Founder and President of PICLIF. "[PICLIF] chose to integrate with Walgreens for picture printing because of the trusted Walgreens brand and the convenience of local pickup. Additionally, it was clear to us that the Walgreens API and API support was far superior to all of the other photo-printing services that we reviewed and considered integrating with."
