What is a VinAudit VIN Lookup API?
To access the API, an API bulk access account must be configured to include the required response parameters. Once a user has an API-enabled account, they may log in and obtain their API key. With the API key in hand, the user’s application may retrieve data through HTTPS requests to VinAudit’s API server (api.vinaudit.com).
VIN Decoder API versus VIN Lookup API?
A VIN Lookup API and a VIN decoder API are two different types of APIs that provide information about a vehicle’s identification number (VIN).
A VinAudit VIN decoder API simply decodes the VIN and provides the vehicle’s specifications such as the attributes, vehicle options, equipment details, recall information, warranties, and photos; it also allows for a “selections” request that can be used to retrieve lists of vehicles based on their year, make, model, trim, style, or ID. This type of API is useful for verifying the accuracy of a VIN or for providing basic information about a vehicle.
On the other hand, a VIN Lookup API provides more detailed information about a vehicle. This type of API can provide information such as the vehicle’s history, accident reports, ownership history, and more. A VIN Lookup API can be useful for a variety of purposes, including vehicle sales, insurance claims, and vehicle maintenance.
The VIN decoder API has two API functions available:
- Function #1: Get vehicle specifications
Get vehicle attributes, equipment, colors, recalls, warranties, photos and more by VIN, YMMT, or ID.
- Function #2: Get vehicle selections
Get a standardized list of year, make, model, trim, and style selections with names and IDs.
- Service #1: Query a VIN for Records
- Service #2: Generate a Vehicle History Report
- Service #3: View a Generated Vehicle History Report
What is a VinAudit Business Account?
As part of the business-to-business (B2B) transactions, the account can also be used by VinAudit partners when requesting vehicle data. VinAudit can also customize vehicle data in any way, shape, or form that best serves the interests of account holders. Meaning, you can have a VIN Lookup API report based on the visuals that fit the themes of your application. You can sign up for a VinAudit Demo Account if you want to try things out with VinAudit resources or if you want to see how the VIN Lookup API, or any VinAudit APIs for what matter, works without committing your money yet. The demo can feature content that will, more or less, match VIN# Lookup API content.
