Yahoo! Shopping API Launched

We're overjoyed to announce the newest member of our family of API
products for developers: the href='http://developer.yahoo.net/shopping/'>Yahoo! Shopping
API
. Using this API, developers can create applications and
Web sites that search Yahoo's comparison shopping database, which
contains millions of offers from thousands of merchants.

With the Product Search API, you can search by
keyword; limit your search to a specific merchant, price range or
product category, and filter merchants according to their Yahoo! User
ratings.

The Price Comparison Grid API gives developers
access to millions of products offered by multiple merchants, returning
base price, tax and shipping info and total price (based on zip
code).

You can find support resources for this new API in the href='http://groups.yahoo.com/group/yws-shopping/'>Yahoo! Shopping API
Group.
