V3 Deprecation Notice
We are planning on sunsetting Version 3 of the WPS API and Data Depot on August 31st, 2018.
Resources are outside, external assets that relate to Products and are typically embeddable references to something on the web in some shape or form.
Example Resource types*: Flickr, Imgur, Instagram, Slideshare, Tumblr, Vevo, Vimeo, Vine, YouTube. They could also be references to a PDF hosted on the Internet somewhere, or a URL to a Google Doc.
Room to grow* Resources are not necessarily limited to any of these types. More Resource types could be added as time goes on.
Resources are great for accompanying product detail page information on your website. It is our hope that you can utilize the resources we've gathered up and associated to Products to help sell the them via various sales channels. Resources are very versatile and can be used in a number of ways.
Display a linked thumbnail of the Resource...
Embed the resources as an iframe...
Resources contain a property called
reference which is typically just the identifier of the asset. More often than not it will
simply be the YouTube identifier, such as

But wait, there's moreThere are even more YouTube hostnames that can be used: i.ytimg.com, i1.ytimg.com, i2.ytimg.com, i3.ytimg.com, i4.ytimg.com, or s.ytimg.com.
The other types of Resources would also work the same way. We provide the Vimeo or Instagram identifier, it is up to you how you utilize it.
