EDD REST API – Sales

The EDD REST API provides access to sales data via the /sales/ endpoint. The sales endpoint allows for you to query the database and retrieve information for recent sales. A basic sales query looks like this:

http://example.com/edd-api/sales/?key=c281cf0a95be875d9eeb284fb004c938&token=5f9432f3ffa5945755ebc66179810d70

Requests to the /sales/ endpoint accept the following parameters:

  • key – The API key to authenticate the request (required).
  • token – The API token to authenticate the request (required).
  • number – The number of records to return (optional).
  • email – A search parameter to return only payments that match the given email (optional). 
  • id – The ID number of a specific payment record (optional).
  • purchasekey – The purchase key for a specific payment record (optional).

For each sale returned, the following information will be available:

  • ID – The sale ID number.
  • key -The sale purchase key.
  • subtotal – The sale subtotal.
  • tax – The sales tax amount.
  • fees – Any arbitrary fees that were added to the sale.

  • email – The email address associated with the sale.
  • date – The date the sale was made.
  • discounts – List of discount codes used.
  • products – A list of products purchased. For each product:
    • id – The Product ID.
    • quantity – The cart quantity for the item.
    • name – The name of the product.
    • price – The price of the product (after any discounts).
    • price_name – The price option name that was purchased (if the product has variable prices).

An example sales query response looks like this:

}

You can narrow the results down by email by adding “&email=test@test.com”. Replace “test@test.com” with the actual user’s email address for whom you want to show sales.

Retrieving Specific Sale Records

To retrieve a specific sale record, you can include either the id or the purchasekey parameter in the request.

For example, to retrieve a sale by the purchase key, the request looks like this:

http://example.com/edd-api/sales/?key=&token=&purchasekey=

To retrieve a sale by the ID, the request looks like this:

http://example.com/edd-api/sales/?key=&token=&id=

Searching Sale Records

Passing the email parameter will result in the API returning all sale records that match the given email address.
