What is the Selling Partner API?

The Selling Partner API (SP-API) is a REST-based API that helps Amazon selling partners programmatically access their data on orders, shipments, payments, and much more. Applications using the SP-API can increase selling efficiency, reduce labor requirements, and improve response time to customers, helping selling partners grow their businesses.

Amazon's Selling Partner API can be used for both Selling Partners and Vendors, and is designed to improve efficiency and aid in accelerating growth.
