API Documentation and adding a submission

The QQTube API will allow you to place orders by simply sending a request to our server. That means you can create your own website to resell what we offer and your customers won't even know about us!

This service is offered free of charge. You will however need an account with us that has enough funds to be able to purchase whichever service you want to use. Once you have an account and funds just generate an API key and you're good to go!

Response

Response will be a JSON encoded object. If a field is null, empty, non-existant or otherwise not as specifically mentioned it is safe to assume there was an error and the request did not succeed. The current format of the response is only temporary and will eventually be changed to include specific codes regarding error or success.

FieldTypeDescription
statusString Whether or not the request suceeded. If it was added then the value will be 'success'. If not it will be 'error'. This may be changed in the future so testing for failure should be due to the absence of 'success' rather than 'error'.

Example response:

"status":"success"
messageArray An array of objects containing messages relating to the success or failure.

Example response:

"messages":
[
	{
		"id":30,
		"message":"Service ID not provided!"
	},
	{
		"id":32,
		"message":"Service does not exist."
	}
]

Example response:

"id_service_submission":"123456"
short_urlString When the submission is a YouTube URL it will be shortened to the video ID or the user channel. For everything else it may be the full URL or empty. Do not expect this to always be present.

Example response:

"short_url":"jofNR_WkoCE"
long_urlString The full URL submitted without any modifications.

Example response:

"long_url":"https:\/\/www.youtube.com\/watch?v=jofNR_WkoCE"

Example response:

"start_count":500000
wanted_countInteger The amount ordered
