The Terapeak Research API contains the most in-depth analysis of eBay data available. API users are able to search 33 of the main categories on eBay, as well as all of the sub-categories contained within. This gives users access to every sale and listing on eBay over the past three months (excluding eBay Motors and Real Estate).
The data is provided in a standard xml (extensible markup language) format which allows developers to interact easily with the API. Terapeak has structured their API to allow clients to quickly integrate eBay research into their websites and applications.
Dave Cotter, CEO of listing management company Mpire states, "We were able to incorporate research into our auction management service in just three months. With Terapeak's rich research and analytics, we were able to focus on delivering a breakthrough new service to our customers instead of worrying about the data itself."
Terapeak CEO Anthony Sukow is excited about how their API can be used to help enhance the eBay community. He explains, "The Terapeak Research API provides clients with the broadest coverage of eBay data available with no maintenance, monitoring or additional analysis needed. The API is another channel we are using to enhance the eBay community through quality research."
