We're Going All SSL
Best Buy’s APIs have accepted both plain-text (HTTP) and SSL (HTTPS) API requests for a long time. This year, in the interest of improving everyone’s security & privacy, we’re dropping plain-text support. Here’s the gist of what we’re doing:
api.bbyremix.bestbuy.comare going away in favor of
- Starting April 3rd, all HTTP requests will redirect to https://api.bestbuy.com using an HTTP
301status code redirect. If your current HTTP client doesn’t properly handle 301 redirects, there is a chance this change will break your implementation.
- Starting July 10th, all HTTP requests will receive a status code of
426(which basically means “you have to switch to HTTPS”). If your API integration is using anything other than https://api.bestbuy.com, your implementation will break at this time.
