Deals API for Buyers

The BidSwitch Deals API integrates with Deal Management APIs of Suppliers that are connected to BidSwitch, allowing BidSwitch connected Buyers to receive private or open deals setup details through one API integration.

BidSwitch parses submitted Deals information from various Suppliers and routes the appropriate Deals to you. From our API, you can pull the most up to date Deals data into your own Deals Management Platform and present them to the Advertiser or Agencies that use your systems. The purpose of such an integration is to improve the trading volume and execution of deals by ensuring details are always correct and actual, so that at time of delivery there should be no technical impediments to prevent the deal from running successfully.

Available API Versions

Usage Overview

Deals API for Buyers Diagram

To integrate with this API, use the following steps.

  1. Get your API Access Token, which will be passed in the request header. If you do not have an API token or user account, use the steps outlined in the API Authorization section. If you have Read Only permissions you may only user GET queries. Request an API Account to access all API methods.

  2. Retrieve or update deal details from the relevant API depending on your integration, see either the V1 Deals API for Buyers or dpa-dsps-v2 section.

  3. When you push deal updates, BidSwitch makes these available to your partner Suppliers also using the API. The details are also made available in spreadsheet format for partners not using an API.

  4. Your system should pull regularly from the Deals API to get updates from Suppliers.
