Zoho CRM provides REST API (Application Programming Interface) that lets you integrate CRM with third-party applications such as accounting, ERP, e-commerce, self-service portals, and others.

The REST API uses simple HTTP methods, such as GET, POST, PUT and DELETE. These methods allow CRM data to be extracted in JSON format including errors, making it easy to develop new applications and also to integrate with existing business applications.


All requests to the API should be made over HTTPS. The API requests and responses are formatted in JSON.
