Of the many APIs we published this week, thirteen were highlighted on the blog by our team of writers. In this post, we’ll shine a spotlight on those thirteen, which included the eBay API. After the creation of their developer platform in 2000, eBay has released 19 individual APIs that are split to cater to sellers or buyers. To learn more about the eBay API visit the In-Depth eBay API blog post as well as the eBay site.
