Grocery Server Developer API

Rich Data + Intelligent Services

Grocery Server has built out a set of RESTful APIs designed to give publishers access to hyper-localized grocery promotions data. Each and every day we take in data from multiple sources:

  • Indexing thousands of promotions and coupons drawn from hundreds of grocery chains in every ZIP code in the United States
  • Updating the data hourly
  • Accurately and continuously mapping all promos/coupons to common search terms and recipe ingredients

To help publishers do interesting things with that data, Grocery Server has created services to support functionality associated with grocery shopping; here are highlights of what our services enable:

  • Dynamically select local stores based on user geo-location or specified zip code
  • Highlight ingredients on sale in a recipe; link ingredients to specific offers from local stores
  • Share individual deals to social media sites
  • Search/browse weekly specials/coupons and products while creating a shopping list
  • Search by individual items, multiple items (i.e., an entire list of items) or UPC
  • Display regular and sale price of items; calculate unit cost; sort by unit cost
  • Manage multiple saved lists, print list, email list, share list as a URL

API Access Has Been Close To Independent Developers

The Grocery Server API has been acquired by Meredith. At this time we are focusing on integrating with Meredith properties. Unfortunately, we do not have the bandwidth to support independent developers seeking to use the API.
