Integration – API
Integrating your own software with Price2Spy API
Need a price monitoring tool tightly integrated with your own software or database?
Price2Spy allows you to access all pricing data on your account via the Application Programming Interface (API).
Our API is implemented as a standard Web Service (accessed either via SOAP or REST interface), making it easy for developers to develop your side of the application, no matter what programming language or technology they use.
Price2Spy API can be used to create and manage your products and URLs, as well as to get the latest (or historical) pricing data. All of this is done by the exchange of standardized XML (SOAP API) or JSON (REST API) messages.
This way you can practically use Price2Spy without ever logging into it. Product managers will continue to work in your own software, and Price2Spy API will make sure the data they enter gets into Price2Spy. Or the other way around – it will make sure Price2Spy feeds your software with the latest pricing info.
Access to Price2Spy API is available to our clients with Premium accounts.
