Welcome to the Business Search API. The Business Search API is designed to enable you to perform extremely flexible searches to Melissa Data’s business database. The Business Search API is ideal for performing skip-tracing type searches, allowing you to search for business information with very limited amount of information, such as having just the business’s name. This flexible business search API also allows for restoring missing information from your data, which are typically not correctable, such as appending a missing address line, based off a business’s name and a general location such as a city.

The Business Search API leverages a combination of a multitude of premium data sources, including business data, credit data, demographic data, government data, telco data, and several others. Through these combined sources, we are able to compile a database of millions of records containing current and historical data for a business’s addresses, phone numbers, and emails.

Here are some example search capabilities of the API:

  • A business’s Address/s
  • A business’s Phone Numbers
  • A business’s Web Address
  • A business’s Stock Ticker
  • Business/s tied to a phone number
