Lowes Product Reviews API

With a GET request to the /api/getter/?platform="lowes_reviews" endpoint, we can scrape customer reviews for any product on Lowes' online store in real-time.

Example

Here's an example showcasing how you can scrape customer reviews for any product on Lowes.com using its product URL and the page number we're interested in scraping reviews from.

The results are sorted by recency, so the most recent reviews are on page 1.

1
curl -v -L 'https://data.unwrangle.com/api/getter/?platform=lowes_reviews&url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.lowes.com%2Fpd%2FHusqvarna-YTH18542-18-5-HP-Hydrostatic-42-in-Riding-Lawn-Mower-with-Mulching-Capability-Kit-Sold-Separately%2F1000368427&api_key=API_KEY'

Note

When using curl, it is necessary to add the option -L to get the data back. This is because in some cases our server responds with a 301 and curl does not follow the redirect by default.
