    Eyes wide open, breathing heavy.... Your API Rocks
    Gary and Co:

    Just wanted to point out that I've been playing with the API tools you have provided as of late yesterday, and I'm amazed.

    While I can paste PHP, I can't write it, and your tools have completely transformed the operation and marketing tactics of my favorite wordpress blog.

    Anyone who isn't a programmer, but has a basic knowledge of PHP should go find some merchants you like at Avantlink, and dive in.

    I'm now able to offer my site visitors EXCELLENT, TIMELY product information as quickly as their merchants add it.

    I really can't say enough about this set up. To me, it puts the emphasis back on marketing, and less on programming, and I believe this industry needs more of that.

    Thanks again.

    (editted the title for, ummm, clarity?)

    Nice work Kevin. Glad you're likin the API

    FYI for others who may be reading. More info: AvantLink API

    I especially like the ProductSearch Module...where you can offer your site visitors one product search across multiple merchant feeds.

    See what you've done now! I've been avoiding that API link because I thought you had to be a full fledged scripter to use it. Now I won't be able to sleep til I go take a peek.

    You know I thought it was beyond me too. I was afraid of trying and finally took a closer look today. I played around and actually came up with a preview I liked. Of course I might have a question when I go to add it to my sites but it's awesome!

    I only wish that my application was approved. Then I could get a crack at the api. From what I've read on their api page, it's definitely a useful tool

    I just got approved and I must say I'm impressed with all the tools. I will be spending the rest of the day checking them out. Why can't the rest of the networks have tools like this that make my work so much easier??

    Well said. Their tools are the best. Now if only I can get other merchants to partner with AvantLink.

    Oooh another API. I love APIs and make great use of CJ's. I just applied to AvantLink Gary, looks like you have some great merchants that I could use. I do already use some of them on CJ but if your API is simple I may well integrate it into my affiliate engine.

    And thanks Kevin!

    OK, just the front page and a click or two tell me to get on board this train. I'll be joining and looking for merchants this week Gary. It looks like there's good documentation and support of the API, which is all a programmer can really ask for - besides more time in the day.

    Cool. Adam's on board.

    Jim, your post here authenticates the ownership of your application, so I'm going to go approve you right now. Site looks great BTW!

    Yours too, Adam
