OUR SIMPLE, WELL DOCUMENTED AND FUNCTIONAL API VERSION 1

After many months (and continued requests!), we are finally releasing our first ever API. We have collaborated with several key affiliates and merchants in various verticals to understand what they need, and what they’ve been missing from other networks’ APIs. This has allowed us to bring you a comprehensive and functional system.

WHAT IS AN API?

An API (or Application Programming Interface) provides access to many functions that you can use to interact with our system and data. You can use it to extend the services of our network, or to ease the management of data into your own systems and software.

WHAT IT MEANS FOR OUR MEMBERS

Our tech savvy members now have the ability to add the services of Commission Factory to their own software, plugins, and apps. This opens the way to extend our functionality to native WordPress plugins, smartphone and tablet apps, and more tightly integrated shopping cart solutions. Smart tools and plugins are on the way, and our API means that we can open up this development to our members or other third party partners and developers.

GETTING STARTED

To get started right away:

– Log in to your account
– Go to your Account Settings

– Generate a new API key

Once you have generated an API key, head over to our Developer API Documentation to get started.

The Commission Factory Team
