Commission Factory offers one of the most comprehensive API's in the industry for our affiliates and advertisers to make use of. API documentation can be found here:
To access and use the Commission Factory API, you will need to generate an API key. To generate a new key, simply click on Generate API Key and enter a description for this key (IE. The name of the person using the key).
You should generate a new API key for each third party that requires access to your account. This allows you to revoke access to an individual third party by deleting a single API key, while continuing to allow access to other third parties with separate API keys.
Remember that having access to one of your API keys is almost like having your username and password - third parties will have access to much of your account. You should only give out API keys to third parties that you trust.
