What are the features of AWeber's API?

AWeber provides an API, allowing customers to easily connect their AWeber accounts with other sites and services online. AWeber users don't really need to interact with the API itself at all - you can simply use AWeber apps that developers have already created.

If you are a developer though and looking to use the API, this article provides the features of the AWeber API.

The API exposes all types of information about an AWeber account and allows for special functions or features that may not be available in the account itself. Things like removing unsubscribed subscribers from lists in your account before the billing period ends can be easily done using an application developed with the API.

Here is a hierarchical representation of the API showing how each object is related.
