Chapter 8. The eBay API > Hacks #82-100

8.1. Hacks #82-100

eBay is more than just a web site. It's a platform upon which you can build your own applications and with which you can extend your business.

The eBay API (Application Programming Interface) is a set of functions you can integrate with your applications to communicate directly with eBay. Use the API to retrieve details about an auction, perform searches, list a seller's current items, and even create new auction listings. Think of the API as a "back door" of sorts, a way for developers to interact with the eBay engine and auction database without using the standard web interface.
