Etsy Research Platform

I’m looking to build a basic platform for research on Etsy.

I want to track changes in favorites, reviews, and views in any given listing.

Here is the workflow I have in my mind:

  1. User will submit the listing He wants to track.
  2. Then the platform will check that listing after every 24 hours.
  3. We will record the changes in favorites, views, and reviews.
  4. And build a growth chart.

I’m a new user of Parabola and can’t figure out how to get this data through etsy API.

Any help will be appreciated.

Hi @Honey_Syed,

In order to track data points tied to an Etsy listing, you’ll first need to register an app and retrieve its API key (as explained in their documentation’s Authentication section here). With this API key, you should be able to use the endpoint described here to get a listing’s ID. Then, you’ll want to start making a list of IDs to use in the step Enrich with an API with the settings Type GET and API Endpoint URL This request made in Enrich with an API will return data about the listing such as num_favorers, favored-by, and views.

Try the above first to see if that retrieves all of the data points you’re looking for. If you still need help with the reviews data point, feel free to reach out for further assistance.
