API Overview

Here is an overview of the available API resources.


A Market is a currency-language pair (i.e. usd_en) that usually corresponds to the region where the products are sold. The Markets API allows you to list all the available markets from which you can choose Products. Only Markets with at least one available Product are returned. The market code is required as a path value in several API calls.

Markets are encoded as _ (ISO 4217, ISO 639-1). Supported markets:

  • usd_en
  • gbp_en
  • aud_en
  • cad_en
  • eur_de
  • eur_it
  • eur_fr
  • eur_es
  • eur_nl
  • chf_de


A Merchant/Retailer is the entity that actually sells the product you wish to advertise, e.g. Amazon, Walmart, John Lewis etc. The Merchants API allows you to list all available merchants in all Markets. Only merchants that sell at least one product in the specified marketplace are returned. Please note that the same merchant may operate in more than one market at the same time.

Price Comparison

The API allows you to search for a specific product in our system and obtain all offers for that product. The results are sorted by price and grouped by merchant (i.e. only the best result for each merchant is returned). It is also possible to apply other filters, such as: price range, filters by merchant, etc.

The API allows you to search by:


You can choose one of the following: UPC, EAN, GTIN, ISBN and ASIN.


Plainlink is the URL of a merchant product web page without tracking parameters (the link as is when browsing the merchant's website).


It will search for all products that have those keywords in the product title.



Monetizer API Keys

This API uses the API keys from the Monetizer 101 product. These are different from the keys used by other Commerce APIs. Please contact us if you wish to start using the Product Affiliate API and need some keys to access it.


How is product data collected?
We collect product data from multiple data sources including, but not limited to, merchant product feeds and merchant APIs.

Is the data normalized or provided as is?
We normalize the data so you don't need to worry about it.

Are images and thumbnails provided?
Yes. We provide URL’s to both full size images and thumbnails as they are sent to us by the merchants through their product feeds.

How fresh is the data?
Depending on the data source, product information is updated from near real-time to once a day.

Why is the data missing or incomplete?

Given the nature of the sources we use to collect product data, some information may be missing or incomplete. There may be several reasons for this. Here are the most common:

  • No information is returned
    • The merchant you are requesting is not supported or is currently unavailable.
    • The product URL you requested is not available through our merchant sources.
  • The information returned is incomplete
    • Some fields (eg. price, stock availability, image, brand) are missing from the merchant feeds
    • No alternative merchants are available since the merchant you requested has not provided the information we need to match alternative offers.
  • The information returned is wrong (eg. wrong price, wrong stock availability, wrong alternative merchant)
    • Merchants have not updated their feeds
    • Merchants have provided wrong data

Is it possible to process tracked URLs (deep links) or shorteners?
Yes, we can process most tracked URLs and shorteners.
