The eBay Buy Browse API can be used to retrieve items and item details without the need of navigating eBay. GET methods are used for retrievals, and the API uses JSON for responses. The Browse API returns item lists, summaries, detailed item information, and item groups. The eBay Buy Browse and Order APIs allow developers to build eCommerce integrations completely off of eBay. Item retrieval and checkout can be made possible without accessing eBay.
eBay has announced the availability of two new Sell and Buy APIs; the Taxonomy API and Buy Marketing API. The company also announced some of the existing Sell and Buy APIs have been updated to add new features. These APIs will eventually replace the eBay’s legacy Trading API..
