At last FlipKart has introduced its Affiliate Application Programming Interface(API) to all its affiliates.
We developed a sample application using Flipkart API, you can take a look at MobiSphere.in
I’m excited to see a wide range of innovative applications which make use of these e-commerce APIs to facilitate/help the end users with their smart buying decisions.
The API generates the response in the following 2 formats:
2. XML: Extensible Markup Language
With this initial API release FlipKart is providing Product Base Info and Product Shipping Info. Product Base Info contains all the basic attributes of the product which includes title, category, price etc. Product Shipping Info contains shipping related information regarding the product.

I’m happy to see Indian e-commerce site providing API facility. I’ve been mailing FlipKart support team asking for this from years now. I’m very happy to see this coming and more excited to see developers innovate with their product ideas.
Now you will start seeing more and more product comparison sites and ready-made scripts which you can purchase and host to start a comparison site instantly!
Would love to know if you have any innovative ideas which you want to see developed ..if something seems worth, will try to develop it.
For now, my best wishes too all developers who will start testing the API’s immediately.
