What is Rakuten RapidAPI


alt text

Rakuten RapidAPI is an API Marketplace for developers to find, connect, and manage their API connections. Find the APIs that you need for your project, embed the API into your app, and track usage of all your APIs through a single dashboard. If you have an API you’ve created, use Rakuten RapidAPI to make it available to hundreds of thousands of developers already utilizing APIs through Rakuten RapidAPI.

For App Developers

It’s really easy to use Rakuten RapidAPI to start consuming APIs in your app. Using Rakuten RapidAPI, you can consume any API using a unified, REST format that is easy to understand and embed in your app. Moreover, you can view all of the APIs you are connected to using the dashboard, which monitors things like the number of API requests, latency, and error rates. For more on using APIs, check out our Basics - Your First API Call section or our Rakuten RapidAPI for Developers page.

For API Vendors

If you already have an API, we make it simple to distribute and monetize your API. Adding your API to Rakuten RapidAPI’s marketplace gets you instant exposure to our growing user base, a search-engine-optimized profile page for your API, as well as features like user management and billing services.
