General details on API communications
How to make API requests?
Each API request should include your identity by specifying AppID and Signature.

- The Secret Key is auto-generated value which can be taken from your API Settings page.

GET: API requests using this method requires everything after the ? symbol, excluding your Signature parameter.
Requests can be made in either JSON or XML:
Requests: Requests sent using GET can use either JSON or XML formats. If you're using POST you'll need to specify the format of your requests using Content-Type. All answers to these requests will be in the same format as the format of request.
Answers: If you're using GET, the format of answers will need to be specified using the 'format' parameter. You can use either 'JSON' or 'XML' as the value - if omitted this will default to 'JSN'.
