Developer API

The API is an interface for EmailDeliverabilityReport.com and enables direct access to our data in the central database for email deliverability, reputation of email senders and more.

Our database is updated regularly so that you can always query the latest data via the API.

What you can do with our API

You want to build your own application around email marketing statistics, email deliverability or sender reputation and you need current data?

Or would you like to know how the deliverability of emails changes considering the numerous industries or email service providers in order to create case studies, statistics or diagrams?

Perhaps you are an operator of an email marketing service that we are testing for deliverability and reputation and would like to be always up to date on how well your infrastructure is doing in direct comparison with the competition?

Use our highly available interface to be able to immediately access data that we collect through very complex tests. We currently evaluate more than 150,000 emails every month, collecting data about reputation of email marketing providers and the deliverability of emails, among other things.

How you can use our API

Our current API version is 1.0. To send requests to the interface, the following SSL-secured URL must be used:

https://api.emaildeliverabilityreport.com/v1/request?api_key=***

You will receive a personal API key after your application for our API use has been accepted. The key has a length of 32 characters and must be kept safely.

Every query is answered with a JSON string. If successful, the data will be sent with the answer. In the case of an error, the error and an error code are named.

To specialize your request, additional parameters have to be added to the URL, the most important parameter is &action=. All requests must be equipped with an action parameter.
