Through an integration with the Shutterstock API, Art.com is expanding their library to meet every customer need

Founded in 1998, Art.com carries the world’s largest collection of wall art and has served more than 19 million customers. Over the last two decades, Art.com has remained steadfast in giving everyone the easiest way to discover, own, and enjoy art they love.

Prior to 2018, Art.com integrated the Bigstock API. In February 2018, Art.com proactively transitioned to integrate the Shutterstock API for an expanded collection of visual assets.

Even though Art.com has over 2 MM unique images, they decided to integrate the Shutterstock API to provide their customers with even more high-quality designs. By providing additional options, Art.com is enabling their customers to fully express their personality and creativity through the various images and products, including over 240 custom framing, wood mount, and canvas offerings.

Additionally, the Art.com internal team has access to the Shutterstock library, broadening their options to curate custom collections and conduct flexible A/B testing. Like most print companies, Art.com curates collections from the Shutterstock library that will best fit the needs of their customers. This effort reduces decision fatigue among Art.com customers, which facilitates a smooth buying experience.

Through this integration, Art.com has expanded the size of their image library, offering enhanced flexibility for both their consumers and their internal teams.
