The UK service provides comparisons of prices for products in a wide range of categories available from competing online sellers. Price quotes include voucher codes that apply available discounts to quoted prices. A Price Watcher function monitors price changes for a product and sends email if a preset price is reached. Product selections include comparisons of airfares across airlines service selected routes. Separate services are available to shoppers and sellers in Germany, Austria, France, and Italy.
Methods allow e-commerce sellers to create and update product and price listings on the service by submitting XML data using the same format as the provider's file-upload service. Updates via the API appear immediately in the service data, while updates via file upload appear after a lag due to batch processes for file handling.
The following is a list of historical changes that were made to this asset. Typically, once an API is published on ProgrammableWeb.com, the data we keep about that asset gets updated over the course of its life. For example, the endpoint or home page of the documentation might change. As a means of enforcing the integrity of our data, every time a non-trivial change is made to the data we keep about an asset, we require the entry of some changelog text before that change can be saved. This way, we have a great audit trail of all activity surrounding the asset. For each asset, the changelogs begins with the moment an asset is approved for publication on ProgrammableWeb. If you spot an error in our data and believe that a record needs to be updated in some way, the ProgrammableWeb team would very much like to hear from you at email@example.com
So far, we don't have a record of any changes to this API
