Our RESTful APIs give you powerful search across millions of SHOP.COM products.  Use our APIs to create collections of relevant products for users, and to present SHOP.COM products to users in imaginative ways. Our APIs return pre-formatted links with publisher IDs included to support our Affiliate Publisher Network program. Build an application or tool that our publishers can configure with their publisher ID to retrieve product information and promote SHOP.COM products on their sites.  Or register to get your own publisher ID and create an innovative shopping app of your own.

This contest is about innovative apps and tools for site owners, bloggers and social media.
