iTunes affiliate API

This is a section of the main tutorial on iTunes affiliate links. itunes-affiliate-apiThere isn't a specific iTunes affiliate API. This is due to the fact that there are different programs to be implemented and would be hard to have a one-fits-all. However, you are certainly free to use the iTunes Search API and then generate iTunes affiliate links. iTunes Store Search API is an asynchronous JSONP webservice which might be a little tricky to implement if you have never done it before. However, considering no authentication is needed, it's definitely something that can be handled with some genuine effort. More details here. The good thing about using a "simple" search API is that then you are free to build and implement iTunes affiliate links in the way you feel is best and therefore generates more revenue. If there had been a designated iTunes affiliate API I'm sure it would be somewhat limited to all the power affiliate marketers.
