  3. Register an application

    Before you can use an API you have to register your application.

    Create New App 

    When you register an application, you need to provide the OAuth redirect URI. This is a mandatory field you have to fill in, for the login/authentication mechanism to be able to return the oauth token, back to your application.

    Register Application

    After a successfull registration, the application is assigned a unique client ID and client secret.

    Show Credentials 

    You must note these codes, because they are required when authenticating your application. Click Show Client Id / Show Client Secret in those two areas, and note down the codes. Some APIs need only the client id, while others (the ones that need to authenticate the end user first) need both the client id and client secret for the oauth end user authentication.

  4. Select a product / plan

    Finally, now that your application is registered, you need to subscribe to a plan of one or more products.

    Browse Available APIs 
    Available Products

    The product / plan determines the number of API calls that your application can make.

    Plan Selection 

    Some plans are free and no approval is required, several plans require approval, and some may ultimately require approval and a monthly subscription. Consider what you need and choose the most suitable plan, if there are more than one available. Repeat the process for each product you are interested in. You can select as many products your application may utilize.
