The SHOP.COM Affiliate Publisher Network offers a public API to search and retrieve real-time product details for SHOP.COM products. The API provides powerful search capabilities to refine product selections that are relevant to the user or application. It gives real-time details of SHOP.COM products and can also calculate shipping and tax to help predict total order amounts. The API provides pre-formatted links that include affiliate IDs to support the APN affiliate marketing program. The API is RESTful, secure, easy to implement and best of all it’s FREE!
