RapidAPI Marketplace

Find and connect to thousands of APIs
One SDK. One API key. One dashboard.

The World’s Largest Marketplace

There are thousands of APIs out there that do things like store files, enrich data, and send messages.

Because each API has its own structure, data format, and networking protocols, finding and connecting to the right one can be difficult and time-consuming.

RapidAPI is the world’s largest API marketplace with over 2 million developers accessing more than 20,000 APIs.

Search and Find the Right API for Your Application

Sign up for a free account and discover the APIs that work best for your project or application. With RapidAPI you can:

  • Establish one location for all your APIs and avoid having to search multiple sites
  • Choose APIs by reviewing the popularity score, average latency, and average success rate directly in the search results
  • Browse APIs by category, collection, or type by using the dropdown menu, search bar, or RapidAPI’s collections (a grouping of APIs based on similar or complementary functionality)

Connect to an API and Integrate it into Your Application

RapidAPI makes it easy to connect to REST, SOAP, or GraphQL APIs. For each API you’ll see performance metrics like average latency, uptime, and popularity. You can test API requests from your browser and:

  • Gather information about each API using the endpoints page to view a list of endpoints, documentation, and a code snippet to help you implement the code into your app
  • View API documentation, individual endpoints, their parameters, and the response data to quickly understand how the API works
  • Subscribe to API plans to start using it. Manage all your API subscriptions and payments through RapidAPI
  • Utilize a single key in RapidAPI for all your APIs

Manage and Monitor the Performance of your APIs

Manage applications and API keys using a single dashboard within RapidAPI.

  • Monitor API performance by visualizing how many requests are made to different APIs, tracking the number of requests that return an error, and viewing latency data for each API.
  • Debug faster by inspecting the logs for all requested data
  • View usage and billing information for a breakdown of API spending, including the monthly recurring and overage charges
  • Manage subscriptions from one place including quota usage and time remaining until the quota limit resets
