Jigadig

Hi,

out of curiousity does any one know if:

a) Yahoo Auctions and Amazon Auctions offer an api for that system similar to ebay
b) Are there any other Auction sites which offer an API?
c) In your opinion does jigadig.com achieve its results by screenscraping or using an elusive API I cannot find lol?

Thanks in advance

On item c, the answer is no. Jigadig is a site aggregator that pulls content from Ebay, Overstock, and Ubid auctions. There's a video on how their service works on YouTube:

Unfortunately, Jigadig has built a revenue model for site users based on an MLM structure. This would suggest a messy can of worms in the near future for them.
