Welcome to the Reverb API

Welcome to the Reverb developer hub. You'll find comprehensive guides and documentation to help you start working with Reverb as quickly as possible, as well as support if you get stuck.

Get Started

Create and Update Listings in LP

The LP API functions similarly to the Reverb core API, so please refer to the Getting Started docs if you're just getting started with the integration.

Note that for sandbox testing, listings will go to but querying LP data will come from LP production,

For any questions, please email [email protected]

To update a listing

To update an LP listing, submit a request like this:

curl -XPUT -H "Authorization: Bearer [oauth_token]" -H "Accept-Version: 3.0" -H "Content-Type: application/hal+json"[id] --data "..."'

Shipping Profiles and Shipping Rates

An importance difference for Reverb LP is that we rely on a shipping profile that uses a standard and incremental rate, the incremental being used when people order additional items for the same shop at the same time. Thus, be sure to set up a Reverb LP Shipping Profile within Reverb LP before syncing.


There are two flags that must be set:

  • has_inventory = true
  • inventory = [n]

For most cases, we should be using has_inventory=true for sellers who are selling retail items that have inventory. If you are selling a unique item, you can set has_inventory=false and the inventory field will be ignored. If you specify inventory=0 for any item, regardless of whether it supports inventory, this will end the listing.
