Getting Started

Welcome to the Commission Factory API Documentation.

The Commission Factory API exposes a wide range of functionality, for both affilite and merchant users. To get started, the following pages cover various topics that will help you understand how to call API functions, and how to interpret results.

Once you have read these pages, you can browse through the affiliate- or merchant-specific documentation.


Generating API Keys

All access to the Commission Factory API requires an API key, which you can generate under your Account Settings in the Commission Factory dashboard.

Calling API Functions

While the Commission Factory API exposes a wide range of functionality, every function call follows the same basic pattern.

JSON or XML

By default, the Commission Factory API works with data formatted in JSON (JavaScript Object Notation), but you can easily override this.

API Call Rate Limits

To ensure a high quality of service for all of our API users, the Commission Factory API puts limits on the number of calls that you can make.
