    total # merchants and products

    I am getting about 1400 merchants having products and about 20 million products based on the numbers in the merchant endpoint. Is that approx accurate?

    I thought I read here a while back that the number had dramatically expanded to over 100 million products.

    Was that with the merger - counting both companies?

    I would love to have access to 100 million products via the product API as 100m would be far better than 20 million due to the enhanced shopping comparison possibilities, and I have some new plans for marketing to leverage such a large offering.

    Was I just imagining seeing something here about 100 million products?

    Related - I am worried the API might go away or be restricted once the merger is complete. Will current API users be able to continue then? This forum has become very quiet. I'm worried that any additional coding on my part may be end up having been wasted.

    The API will stay around, it won't be going anywhere. However, our catalog is slowly going out of date as products are changing.

    I would suggest utilizing VigLink's product API soon. It still needs some work but it has a lot more products/merchants. And we will be adding to that API to improve it.

    Thanks - will Propserent API users automatically be grandfathered in to be able to use the VigLink API without approval and all VigLink merchants are automatically approved for commission payouts? There preferred merchants feature was a bit unclear to me.

    Can you please explain.

    Are you updating the products regularly?
    Are you going to add viglink products in prosperent? Or are you going to improve viglink api lke prosperent's api.

    Soon i am going to use viglink api. I like all features of prosperent api in viglink.

    Adding to affi's concerns. For my site the more merchants and products the better. The Prosperent merchant endpoint shows about 33,000 merchants with deep linking, and about 22m in products for those that use the product API. Have the merchants with products in the Prosperent API already been assimilated into the VigLink API, or will that be happening, and when?

    I can't tell by looking at the VigLink Merchant Explorer how many merchants or products are in the API. It may be that many or most of them are not, so if I want product information for them I may need to rely on a different api source. I guess I'll try working with it some and ask any questions there, but any further info you can give about that would be appreciated.
