InvisibleHand is a browser add-on that automatically informs users when the product that they're shopping for is available at a lower price elsewhere. It also provides a link to the lowest-priced option. InvisibleHand can circumvent Minimum Advertised Prices (MAPs) in the U.S. by uncovering the real prices of products in cases where the price is too low to legally advertise.
The InvisibleHand API allows users to access the real-time prices for millions of products at hundreds of retailers. It is also capable of discovering where else a product is sold and retrieving product identifiers, such as UPCs, EANs, MPNs, ASINs and ISBNs.
Of the many APIs we published this week, eight were highlighted on the blog by our team of writers. In this post, we’ll illuminate those eight by throwing them into the spotlight. The eight included the Invisible Hand API. Invisible Hand, web browser add-on, is dedicated to informing the user of the cheapest price on millions of products ranging from flight discounts to tooth brushes. It does so by matching UPC, ISBN and EANs to products from the search box. Furthermore, it includes roughly 700 retailers and 600 Airlines and has saved users a breath taking one billin dollars since its inception. To learn more about the Invisible Hand API visit the Invisible Hand site as well as the Invisible Hand API blog post.
The Invisiblehand API brings this cleverly named browser add-on focused on finding the lowest price for something that the user is shopping for to a wider audience. Constantly updating prices on millions of products from books to air fares, Invisiblehand stands out for its ability to learn about new products it hasn't seen before. The documentation indicates this is a RESTful API with JSON responses.
