API Endpoint URLs
General Recommendations (Popular Items)
Intended to eventually be a combination of Also-Bought and Also-Viewed
The primary endpoint for general recommendations. Currently defaults to using "Best Selling" (below), though this may change in the future.
Trending (or Similar Items)
This endpoint will return products that were Most Viewed on your site.
If the seed parameter is passed, this will return products that were most often Also Viewed in the same user sessions on your site, when the seed product(s) was/were viewed.
Best Selling (or Complimentary Items)
This endpoint will return products that were Most Bought on your site.
If the seed parameter is passed, this will return products that were most often Also Bought in the same user sessions on your site, when the seed product(s) was/were purchased.
All parameters can be used with any of the endpoints listed above.
|Description||The unique ID for the website to fetch recommendations for. This can be found on the My Account page in the SearchSpring Management Console under "Site ID".|
Request specific fields to be returned for each product.
|Example Values||["days_since_published", "ga_unique_purchases"]|
The Tailored Recs Profile ID Tag. To apply a Tailored Recommendations Profile to the response, simply pass the tag here. The tag is the "Profile ID" listed under the title of a profile.
The profile settings will always override whatever endpoint you are hitting.
|Description||Experimental feature: Attaches a search query with loose matching logic (Only needs to match one or more words from the query) to return "fallback" results. Essentially the same behavior as Expanded Search. Very useful for Zero Results Pages. Can still be mixed with profile filters/boosts/etc.
Note: Requires a profile tag to be passed from a custom type profile (not complimentary, etc.)
|Example Value||"ball murray"|
|Description||If you are looking for recommendations related to a specific product or set of products, pass the seed SKU(s) here. Only required for Complementary Items (also-bought) and Similar Items (also-viewed) recommendation types.|
|Example Values||["C-LA-W1-20264", "C-NBK-R2-D7043"]
|Description||Limit the number of product suggestions that are returned.
Maximum limit of 100
