Grocery Server Developer API

Rich Data + Intelligent Services

Grocery Server has built out a set of RESTful APIs designed for developers who want to 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 developers 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
