Minimal API link: https://scraping.services/api?user=_USER@ACCOUNT_&credentials=_CREDENTIALS_
API login: _USER@ACCOUNT_
API key: _CREDENTIALS_


Company query API: Company name to profile

This API is currently in beta and subject of change


API description

Our company query API allows to query our company databases for details.

Our company database contains information about more than 23 million companies worldwide, including details about public traded companies.


Cost
Each requested company comes at a base cost of 0.5 Credits, each fulfilled request is charged an additional 1.5 Credits.


Development cost
The company names Linkedin, IBM, Apple and XXXXXXXX will not incur the fulfillment cost.


Query companies by company name
task = name_to_company

https://scraping.services/export? user=_USER@ACCOUNT_& credentials=_CREDENTIALS_& job_type=company_query&version=2& task=name_to_company& export_format=json& human_readable&company_name_list=Linkedin,IBM,Apple,XXXXXXXX&country_name=United States

Important parameters:

  • export_format  [json,csv]
    json: export format is one JSON object
    csv: export format is CSV
  • country_name [string]
    Priorize records from given country by name if multiple records are available
  • human_readable
    This option switches JSON export from machine readable to human readable format
  • company_name_list
    Comma separated list of company names, up to 500 requests per API call
  • include_null

    If this parameter is set all fields will be exported, even if NULL

Alternative query variant:


Similar as our other APIs you may use a json parameter which can be suppled as JSON parameter.

Please note: This is still a web-forms object, not raw JSON data.

When using JSON the website_list parameter has to be replaced as with a JSON array 'company_names'
