The RateItAll API


Here are four important reasons to try the RateItAll Consumer Rating API:



RateItAll exposes much of its functionality and content via a series of APIs (Application Programming Interfaces). RateItAll offers both REST APIs with output in JSON / XML, as well as SOAP APIs. Users of these APIs are able to read/write to/from the RateItAll database in a variety of ways including:

  • Retrieve ratings and reviews for a particular item or from a particular reviewer
  • Retrieve user names and profile pictures
  • Retrieve item names, images, and descriptions
  • Retrieve reviews for particular items
  • Retrieve comments for a particular review
  • Post reviews for a particular item
  • Post comments for a particular review
  • Create new items
  • Create new topics
  • Retrieve a list of available subjects for which a topic can be created
  • Create new reviewer accounts


Available Services

  • User Service (Complete User Administration)
  • Subject Service (List of Available Subjects on which a Topic can be Created) 
  • Topic Service (Manage Topics) 
  • Item Service (Manage Items, For ex: Pizza is the Item for the Topic "Italian Foods")
  • ItemRating Service (Maintains the Ratings/Reviews for each Item).  This service can also handle the Voting for each Item Review/Rating. 
  • ItemRatingComment Service (Maintain the Comments for the ItemReviews/Ratings)
