API description

About the API:

The goal of a Book Information API is to streamline the process of retrieving information about books, which can be time-consuming and tedious when done manually. By using an API, developers can automate the process of retrieving book data and integrate it into their own applications or websites. This API can provide access to data such as book titles, authors, publishers, publication dates, etc.

One of the main advantages of using this API is that it allows developers to retrieve accurate and up-to-date book data from a variety of sources. This means that developers can ensure that their applications or websites always have the most up-to-date information about the books they are working with.

Another advantage of using a Book Information API is that it can help improve the user experience for customers searching for books online. By integrating book data into their websites or applications, developers can make it easier for customers to find the books they are looking for by providing additional search criteria or offering personalized recommendations based on the customer's browsing history.

In addition to providing book data, many book information APIs also offer book search functions or the ability to search by author or year.

In general, can be a valuable tool for developers working with book data. By providing access to accurate and up-to-date book data, these APIs can help streamline the development process and improve the user experience for customers searching for books online.

Zyla API Hub is, in other words, an API MarketPlace. An all-in-one solution for your developing needs. You will be accessing our extended list of APIs with only your user. Also, you won't need to worry about storing API keys, only one API key for all our products is needed.

Prices are listed in USD. We accept all major debit and credit cards. Our payment system uses the latest security technology and is powered by Stripe, one of the world’s most reliable payment companies. If you have any trouble with paying by card, just contact us at [email protected]

Sometimes depending on the bank's fraud protection settings, a bank will decline the validation charge we make when we attempt to be sure a card is valid. We recommend first contacting your bank to see if they are blocking our charges. If more help is needed, please contact [email protected] and our team will investigate further

Prices are based on a recurring monthly subscription depending on the plan selected — plus overage fees applied when a developer exceeds a plan’s quota limits. In this example, you'll see the base plan amount as well as a quota limit of API requests. Be sure to notice the overage fee because you will be charged for each additional request.

Zyla API Hub works on a recurring monthly subscription system. Your billing cycle will start the day you purchase one of the paid plans, and it will renew the same day of the next month. So be aware to cancel your subscription beforehand if you want to avoid future charges.

Just go to the pricing page of that API and select the plan that you want to upgrade to. You will only be charged the full amount of that plan, but you will be enjoying the features that the plan offers right away.

Yes, absolutely. If you want to cancel your plan, simply go to your account and cancel on the Billing page. Upgrades, downgrades, and cancellations are immediate.

You can contact us through our chat channel to receive immediate assistance. We are always online from 9 am to 6 pm (GMT+1). If you reach us after that time, we will be in contact when we are back. Also you can contact us via email to [email protected]
