As well as making Virgin Money Giving mobile friendly, one of the features we’ve been most asked for since we launched has been to open up public APIs, allowing charities, fundraisers and developers to build their own applications that make use of the Virgin Money Giving platform.
We’re very excited to announce that in 2013 we’ll be making a suite of public APIs available giving developers access to lots of functions such as:
|Create Fundraiser Pages – An API that allows fundraisers to create both individual and team fundraising pages.|
|Fundraising page details – An API that provides additional details about a specific Virgin Money Giving fundraising page.|
|Event Fundraiser – An API that returns a list of all the fundraising pages for a specific event on Virgin Money Giving.|
A few of our member charities are already working with us to help finalise the features, and we’ll be making further details available in 2013. Whether it’s a totaliser for your website, a leader board of all your fundraisers in an event, a Facebook or Mobile App we’re really looking to seeing what creative applications they’ll be used in.
If you’re a developer or work for a charity and would like to make use of our new APIs, you can register your details with us and we’ll be in touch as soon as we have more we can share.
If you want to be the first to hear you can send us an email to firstname.lastname@example.org, and of course we’ll keep you up to date on our blog.
