Hey, there I am extremely new to RM. I work for a car sales company and we use a TradeMe a website for buying and selling items. we want to gain insight into the used cars sales market so we can have a better understanding and can have better forecasting models. Is anyone able to help with whether this website has an API and how I would go about setting up RM to do what we want it too?

Cheers,

    Assuming this is the site you are interested in: https://www.trademe.co.nz
    They do have an API which is described here: https://developer.trademe.co.nz/api-overview/
    You'll need to check on the site's terms of use, but it seems like this API is designed to allow developers to retrieve information from the site listings.
