Since we began tracking APIs and mashups almost five years ago, ecommerce has been a very popular category. Last fall we noted 82 shopping APIs, though there are now well over 100. Similarly, today we list 604 shopping mashups, but there were only 100 shopping mashups back in 2006. A lot has changed, but new and interesting ecommerce mashups keep coming. Below are some of our favorite recent additions.
