Sensis API - SAPI

SAPI provides a valuable service for developers seeking a business search API solution for Yellow Pages® and White Pages® business listings and advertising content.

With SAPI there is no need to be daunted by the prospect of collecting local business information to power your web application.

Do you really want to be in the business of maintaining this sort of information anyway?

No? Then let us take the pain away for you...

SAPI has been custom-built to provide simple ongoing access to a fully maintained and comprehensive collection of Australian local business listings, sourced from the iconic Yellow Pages® and White Pages® Directories.

SAPI also allows you to search for Yellow Pages® and White Pages® Directory listings in ways you may not even have considered.

So, why not leverage the capability that Sensis is making available and focus your efforts on growing your business and better understanding the needs of your customers?

Who should use it?

Anyone who wants to provide Australian local business search capabilities within their web application should use SAPI.

APIs are quite technical, meaning you will need a Web Developer / Programmer to integrate it effectively into your application. All the juicy technical details can be found in the Technical Documentation section.

Take a look at our API gallery to see some examples of what others have done.

What are the key things I need to know?

  1. You can request a test key with limitations to API requests to trial the service. However, the test key will only be be activated for 14 days. The key will then be disabled.
  2. For full access you will need a production key. This is a paid service. The Sensis Data Solutions team will discuss your requirements in relation to pricing.
  3. When building your application using a production key, we require you to provide "reporting events" relating to interactions with each business listing back to Sensis. This can be done very simply by following instructions within the technical documentation. Our brand guidelines provide a range of “powered by” branding options for your consideration & use.
