What is an API, and how does it work?

API stands for Application Program Interface-- a set of methods and tools for building software applications. In this case, we provide companies tools for buying books online.

You'll need a site capable of using back-end code, such as PHP. We'll provide a way to retrieve metadata, your Amazon Pepr price for items, and remote inventory controls. You will invoke commands using formatted URLs (which we'll show you how to make), and receive data in return from Amazon Pepr.

If this is your first time using an API, we'll guide you through the basics with our tutorial. Our API Glossary will cover each of the functions we offer in detail.

Too Technical?

Not to worry! If this is too advanced and you don't have your own programmer to implement the system, you can contact Berding Consulting and we'll gladly give you an installation quote.
