Daisycon offers a great API (or Application Programming Interface) to connect with the Daisycon platform. Our API allows you to retrieve statistics and link materials, update transactions, subscribe to affiliate program, and a whole lot more! By using our API you can also extend your own software, such as your financial administration, with financial data or you can retrieve affiliate links to update your website!
Getting started with the Daisycon API is easy. Login to your Daisycon account, add permissions for API usage and check out our documentation about authentication and our resources, some general and some specific for advertisers or publishers.
The Daisycon API is a RESTfull API. The REST architectural style was developed by W3C Technical Architecture Group (TAG) in parallel with HTTP 1.1, based on the existing design of HTTP 1.0. The World Wide Web represents the largest implementation of a system conforming to the REST architectural style.
In order to use the Daisycon API you will need to have an advertiser or publisher account (or both) with API permissions. If you don’t already have an account, you can visit Daisycon.com to create a publisher account.
The Daisycon API has resources specifically for advertiser, for publisher and some common resources for retrieving the data and performing updates etc. Requests are formatted as JSON.
The Daisycon API uses a throttling mechanism to limit the amount of calls an API-user can make. This mechanism reduces the strain on our backend systems, as well as prevents multiple users to compete for resources. This will result in less downtime and error responses.
To make life easier we’ve created some code examples. The samples in this guide are examples only and not runnable as-is. You should substitute all call-specific parameters (such as authentication values) with your own values.
The Daisycon API attempts to return appropriate HTTP status codes for every request. When an error occures, the API also returns HTTP codes. In the specific resource you can see exactly what the error means.
The sandbox is a testing and development environment that replicates the functionality of the Daisycon API resources. You can use the sandbox to develop and test your applications without the risk of modifying your data. With our sandbox you can select your own data and perform insert, update and delete queries. Changes in the sandbox never affect live data.
We monitor the status of the API all the time, you can check out the performance and availability status of the present and of the last 7 days. This can be usefull when you got responses you didn’t expect.
