David Terence Sadler created the eBay SDK with the main goal to develop with the API in PHP projects. Services that users can find valuable include finding, trading, and shopping. To start, developers need to install the SDK via composer. Features encompass compatibility with PHP 5.3.9 or greater, easiness to install with composer, and compliance with PSR-0, PSR-1 and PSR-2. David offers user guides, SDK versions, sample project, support with Google Group, and contact via Twitter @devbaydotnet
Consumer Notebook just launched their API at PyCon. The Consumer Notebook site allows users take products and add them to lists and grids. Lists, as you’d expect, allow you to group common products. For example, gift ideas for friends, or books you’d like to buy. Grids provide a way to rank and compare a set of similar products. Perfect for planning your next cell phone upgrade, or deciding which trampoline best fits your lifestyle.
Consumer Notebook [is a] product comparison site that combines the best features of Open Comparison, Yelp, Consumer Reports, and Pinterest.
The API is REST based, and provides data in JSON format. Currently the documentation only references read access to the principle resources: Users, Products, Lists, and Grids (a comparison of products).
ShippingEasy consists of a cloud-based platform that allows online merchants to manage the processing and tracking of orders from a single interface.

In addition to over ten existing integrations with e-commerce sites (e.g. Magento, eBay, Shopify, etc.), ShippingEasy offers a custom API that allows developers to incorporate the ShippingEasy platform into third party apps and sites.
