From Mashable:

For startups looking to create or license their web-based products, an API marketplace is a boon. It allows for quick publicizing and discovery of APIs, and lets its users easily match them to developers’ needs. Mashape is also launching a simple billing system and social features for API providers.

From TechCrunch:

Mashape, which was founded in November by Augusto Marietti, Marco Palladino and Mike Zonca, aims to be a little bit Etsy, a little bit Github by building a unified, all-in-one marketplace where users can find, sell, distribute, and hack on APIs. The platform makes it easy to list any JSON API using its simple wizard and provide it to a community of developers just waiting to get hackin’. Plus, there are 5 auto-generated client libraries, including PHP, Ruby, Python, Object C and Java.

API consumers can use any API listed on Mashape via a single Developer Key and a standard interface, so that once you’ve learned how to consume an API on Mashape, you know how to consume then all. Developers can even test their APIs by using Mashape’s online Test Console.

Mashape is the largest API hub in the world where you can consume, distribute, monitor and monetize your public and private APIs. Mashape powers 10,000 public & private APIs in every major industry, including finance, healthcare, and entertainment. We’re a Series A startup backed by Jeff Bezos (Amazon), Eric Schmidt (Google), Stanford University and top tier VC firms including Index Ventures, NEA and CRV.
