Science Rockstars aims to transcend simple recommendation engines and A/B testing techniques to create personal profiles of pitches that persuade individually. Their Persuasion API allows applications to compile profiles of each customer and what sways them. Then, based on the profile, communication can be altered in real time in ways that best suit the customer and increase the conversion rate. The documentation notes that it can be implemented either on the server or client side (the latter includes a Javasctipt library to facilitate the process).

In May, PW reported on Gumroad's API that aimed to simplify online transactions. Indeed, the earlier release did move Gumroad towards its goal: "to democratize the ability to sell stuff online." However, Gumroad's latest offer, Platform API, simplifies the online buying process even further. The earlier API required buyers to register for a Gumroad account and required the use of links. The Platform API removes the need for links and buyer accounts. Instead, an entire transaction occurs on the merchant's site.
