What is the Genius Link API?

The Genius Link API is designed for developers who are creating their own application, website, or service. With the Genius Link API, you can now integrate certain aspects of our service directly into your own development projects. Using a simple API Query, you can:

  • Create or manage links
  • Add and edit groups
  • Watch affiliate tags
  • View click trend reports for product, destination, referrer, device, etc., by hour, day, month, or lifetime.
  • And more!

How do I access the API?

To access the Genius Link API follow these simple steps:

  1. If you do not already have your API keys, navigate to the Tools page within your dashboard, then scroll down until you see the Integrate with our API header. Click the Add an API key button.
  2. Next, go to https://api.geni.us/ and paste the API "Key" and "Secret" into the designated boxes at the top of the page.
  3. Find v1 or v2 below, then click Show/Hide

In order to use the api in production the following headers need to be provided:

X-Api-Key

X-Api-Secret

You can also use it on query string by providing the following query parameters:

apiKey

apiSecret

We highly recommend to use the https version of our service which has the same paths, except with https:// instead of http://

We would love to see what you can create, and how you will utilize the technology!
