Do you offer your online catalog as a web api for developers who would like to leverage your catalog within their own applications?

I am also insterested in this.

 

Anyone found a solution or script to scrape this site for product info?

Wouldn't it be super cool if a Customer Care Representative actually checked these forums and answered questions that obviously many people have.

 

Come on Home Depot. Simple yes or no.

Hi All - Home Depot currently has web api for the online catalog. But this is at this point limited access. If you are interested, please submit your request at the following for consideration

Thank you for your response, I didn't mean to sound like such a **bleep**, I was just a little frustrated.

 

Cheers,

Don't even bother applying you guys, I spoke to the head of internet commerce who said, "...our company will not open API’s to customers."

 

Seems to me like there isn't much of a point allowing us "customers" to apply for approval if it's a fruitless process, especially when no one plans to respond to the request even to deny it.

 

Unless you move up the chain and speak to a higher up directly, don't expect to hear back at all.

 

Little bit of a slap in the face, Home Depot. Thanks.

That's not good.

 

I am building a website for a company that buys pallettes of unsellables from Homedepot and needs to gather all the info off HD's site in order to resell each item.  

 

Currently, the company has to search the HD site and copy paste the info.

 

I was hoping to hire a programmer to create a way to get that info off the site automatically.

 

At this rate the company, does not have the resources to buy more palettes of items unless they can save time and effort on a more effiecient way to gather this info.  

 

So in the end, if HD doesn't have an API or I can't figure out how to accomplish the client's goals then HD will loose the additional sales of the unsellable bulk palettes.

Home Depot should recognize that by not opening the API (or at least letting developers have access) they're going to inevitably lose business. Maybe there's a good reason, but I can't see how giving developers access to the API could be harmful at all to business, security, etc.

 

I understand it's a beta, but that's why you give developers access to test the features and find the bugs.

 

Oh well...

Has anyone been approved for API access? We've applied but also haven't heard anything back yet.
