View Full Version : Allposters Web Services via XML is here!

(I posted this at Sitepoint too but I'm posting it here for those who don't frequent SP)

I just got my Allposters email and it has info about their new web services. I've been looking forward to this. They are also offering a $1000 prize to kick it off.

Anyone want to write a tutorial?

Hmmm... looks interesting. Will it be "set and forget" like the Amazon Web Services sites, or will people have to download/update databases, etc..?

Looks like it works like Amazon's with live data being pulled via XML.

I'll have a look at that later, it looks quite interesting.

Yes, but you start out at 25%.

25% is pretty good too, some of the sales I'm getting at my site www.amavart.com are in the hundreds of dollars. Anyone set up with the XML feed yet?

Yes, its not just 25% on a $8 poster. 25% on a framed art print can be $100.

I haven't used their XML services yet, I just made a site off a datafeed dump.

... my site www.amavart.com ...
Is this from the datafeed dump too, or something else?

Unfortunately, it doesn't seem to work the same way as Amazon's :(

I would be really interested in a web services one using seo friendly URLs. Anyone want to write a script? I'd pay for a copy.

Would you take one in perl?
