What is EAN-Search API?
EAN-Search API is a web-based application programming interface (API) that enables users to search for product information using the European Article Number (EAN) barcode.
The API provides data for millions of products, including the product name, description, images, and other information. It also includes information on where to buy the product, how much it costs, and how many are available.
The EAN-Search API is free to use, and developers can access the API documentation and code samples on the EAN-Search website.
How to Use the EAN-Search API
The EAN-Search API is a REST API, which means that it uses standard HTTP requests to communicate with developers.
To use the API, you first need to create a free account. Once you have registered for an account, you can obtain an API key by clicking on the "API Access" tab and then clicking on the "Generate API Key" button.
You will then need to include your API key in all API requests.
The EAN-Search API is divided into two sections: the Product Search API and the Merchant Search API.
The Product Search API allows you to search for product information by EAN code. You can use this API to get information about products, including images, prices, and availability.
The Merchant Search API allows you to search for merchant information by name or EAN code. You can use this API to get information about merchants, such as contact information, opening hours, and product ranges.
API Documentation and Code Samples
The EAN-Search API documentation is available on the EAN-Search website. The documentation includes a user guide, a technical guide, and a list of API endpoints.
The EAN-Search website also provides code samples in both Python and Java.
