Yahoo launches shopping data you can add to your site!

Use Yahoo! Shopping Data on Your Site

We're excited to announce the Yahoo! Shopping API, a new product that enables Web site owners and software developers to use Yahoo! comparison shopping data in their sites and applications.

Using the Shopping API, developers can create applications that search the Yahoo! database of millions of products and thousands of merchants, displaying prices and enabling searches in new and innovative ways.

With the Product Search API, you can search by keyword; limit your search to a specific merchant, price range or product category, and filter merchants according to their Yahoo! User ratings.

The Price Comparison Grid API gives developers access to millions of products offered by multiple merchants, returning base price, tax and shipping info and total price (based on zip code).

If you're a software developer, you can get the all the information on using the Shopping API on the Yahoo! Developer Network site. If you're a user of Yahoo! Shopping and you want to see how third parties are connecting with Yahoo! Shopping, stay tuned. We'll report back soon with examples of applications and sites that use Yahoo! Shopping data.
