As an Ingram or Spring Arbor customer, you have access to the most comprehensive title database in the book industry. Ingram’s API service connects you with information on all the products available in our inventory or you can access data for the millions of titles you can purchase new from Ingram as well as those available in the industry as new, used, or out of print. Best of all, access to our database is available to you through your current point-of-sale system or application. API is available to both physical and online retailers.
API brings the following benefits directly to your point-of-sale system:
- More titles – immediate access to millions of active and out-of-print titles.
- More information – Ingram’s title data is the most complete and up-to-date in the industry.
- More timely – No manual updates. Your title data is automatically updated every day so you always have the most up-to-date title and stock information.
- Less money – Our API service gives you more complete title information and costs less than other data subscriptions.
For online retailers, Ingram allows customers to receive title information directly from our server using our Web or FTP service. You can upload the data you need without ever having to key in a single word. Ingram's data includes detailed bibliographic information and metadata—so the upload you receive is complete and ready for use.
For your convenience, Ingram Publisher Services provides access to two types of data files for product information. Learn more.
