What is an API?

API stands for “Application Programming Interface.” In simple terms, an API is a way for two computer programs to communicate in order to transfer information. DueDil makes all its information on 9 million+ companies available, via its API, for use in your products and services.

How much does it cost to use the DueDil API?

We have three API plans designed around likely useage volume (number of calls per month) and the type of business problem you’re trying to solve. We design bespoke plans for enterprise customers and other users looking for a larger call volume. The APIs & pricing page has full details.

Can I try it out first, before paying?

Yup. We offer two testing environments: the “Sandbox” and the “API Lite”.

The Sandbox has all the endpoints and features of the “Pro” and “Enterprise” plans, but uses scrambled company names and IDs to show the API’s capabilities. This means you can test your application for free before signing up for a paid plan.

The API Lite allows users to access a few basic endpoints across our database, with a cap on the number of monthly calls.
