Step 3: Download a finished job's results.

🚧

Follow redirects

For performance reasons, we sometimes pre-render your results. If we do so, we will respond with a redirect. Please make sure, your client follows redirects when you request results.

Result formats

We currently can give you the job results in four different formats:

  • JSON (recommended for integration)
  • XML
  • CSV (for most topics)
  • XSLX (for most topics)

72 hour retention period

Product-level errors

Even when a job is accepted, there may be errors while collecting data on individual products. This is indicated with the success attribute being false and with a given reason attribute.

When an error occurs, we don't deduct any credits. The only exception is for reason not found (see below) as this is a valid response and it takes us the same amount of effort to find this out.

List of reasons

Reason codesMeaning
not foundWe have successfully searched for the given product, but it is not currently present on the source.
invalid valueWe have checked the value and found that it is invalid. We did not try to request this. For example, if you search with key=gtin we will check the provided GTIN's checksum.
validation errorWe failed to collect valid data for you.
timeoutWe could not collect the data in the timespan allowed by you. See job parameter timeout.
source temporary not reachableWe cannot collect data from this source at the moment.
offer not foundA product was found, but it does not currently have any offers.
failed to access sourceWe cannot collect data from this source at the moment.
cluster not foundData for the product could not be collected at this time. We expect to be able to collect the data next time you request it.
cluster_goneData for the product could not be collected at this time. We have to search for it, which may take a while. We may be able to collect the data next time you request it (generally within the next days).
not_searchableData for the product could not be collected and we estimated that we cannot do so in the near future.
to_be_searchedData for the product could not be collected at this time. We have to search for it, which may take a while. We may be able to collect the data next time you request it (generally within the next days).
errorGeneral error in our processing.

Further reasons may exist or be added later.
