Yahoo! Pulls Plug on Shopping API
Yahoo has entered into a “strategic partnership” with PriceGrabber to power the Product Submit functionality of Yahoo! Shopping. The deal is effective starting March 11, 2010.
As a result of the announced changes, Yahoo! will no longer provide the Shopping Web Services API, including Shopping Results (the “Yahoo! Shopping Syndication Services).
Yahoo advises those that wish to continue to display the syndicated shopping results for products listed on Yahoo! Shopping to apply to PriceGrabber for shopping syndication services (which does not offer a free Web services API).
