Thanks to an exciting new partnership with Bundle.com, we are proud to introduce a whole slew of exciting new APIs about spending trends. Bundle uses aggregated, anonymized spending data from 20 million Visa and Mastercard customers to derive a slew of useful information on restaurants, bars and shops. With the APIs they’ve made available on Infochimps.com, you can get detailed information, including location, loyalty score, average transaction amount, neighborhood, loyalty ranking, similar businesses and more about merchants in New York and San Francisco. (There are plans to expand to more cities in the future.)
What can you do with this powerful information? How about adding some real-life sales comparison data on your local competitors to your company’s analytics dashboard? Building an app that appeals to bars with loyal customers and average tabs of over $50 and want to do some customer prospecting? Creating a travel guide based on real-life customer behavior and not subjective opinions? The possibilities with this data are boundless; we’re excited to see what you come up with!
