IVA's Shopping API connects your visitors to all the major related services (Amazon, Netflix, iTunes, Fandango). Check out the documentation below.
To see an example of the Shopping API in use, go to VideoDetective and select a trailer to wactch. On the page, below the player will display available shopping options if there are any.
Description: The Shopping API provides access to shopping data for movies, games, and music videos.
Default Order: NA
Special Parameters: ID Types (String) - the ID Types parameter specifies the shopping site and optional affiliate ID for a given title. To enable multiple sites, concatenate multiple IDs/affiliate IDs together separated by a comma. To get a URL to Amazon for product purchases using your Amazon Affiliate ID, your ID Types parameter would look like: idtype=13:amazon_affiliate_id.
This tells the API to only include results for Amazon and to include the affiliate ID in the URL so your account is credited with the sale. See example URL below for multiple shopping sites.
| ||13 - Amazon |
| ||16 - Google Movie Showtimes (no affiliate ID) |
|17 - iTunes (use your Web Services Token) |
|18 - Fandango.com |
|39 - Netflix |
|42 - Hulu (not Hulu+) |
| || 49 - Barnes & Noble |
| || 40 - Vudu |
| || 60 - Crackle |
| || 61 - Walmart |
Search Term - This is the Published ID of the title for which you see information.
Developer ID - The ID assigned to you when you signed up for the API.
You can also search iTunes availability by country via our Shopping API by passing along the specific country code you wish to look up. By default the shopping API will return results for the US. If the item being searched for is not available in the country store specified, no results will be returned.
In the following examples please note that iTunes is idType = 17 and the searchterm = xxxxxx is IVA’s Published ID of a title. Also the Country Code is a two character Alphabet code. You can find the list of country codes here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/ISO_3166-1_alpha-2
