Five “Widgets” You Can Immediately Drop Into Your Site

For the last few years, ITA has enabled developers to access information on exporting data through its Developer Portal. Although we strive to make it as easy as possible for you to get the data (even undergoing several usability tests) we know that not everyone has the means to take advantage of the APIs.

To remedy that, we have built five search “widgets” that you can immediately drop into your Web site. All you need to do is register for an API key (if you haven’t already) copy the widget code at the bottom of our ITA Search Widgets page, and paste it into your site with your API key. Done!

Your customers will be able to easily search any of five APIs using the simple search interface that the widget provides. Keep in mind that although the data comes from our APIs, we have streamlined the widgets’ search interfaces and results to make it as easy as possible for your customers. You can always build search tools with much more functionality if you access the APIs directly.

Consolidated Screening List Widget – searches eleven export screening lists from the Departments of Commerce, State and the Treasury. The widget enables your customers to do a quick screening search for people or companies with whom they are doing business or are party to their overseas transactions. The widget returns results that are either exact matches and near matches in case your customers don’t have the exact spelling of the name.

Trade Leads Widget – searches contract opportunities for U.S. businesses selling their products and services overseas. These leads come from a variety of sources including FedBizOps, The United Kingdom, Canada, The Millennium Challenge Corporation, and Australia. The widget enables your customers to do a quick search for trade leads, procurement opportunities, and contract notifications in a particular country or within all countries.

Trade Events Widget – searches for events organized by ITA, the U.S. Trade and Development Agency, the State Department, and the Small Business Administration. The widget enables your customers to do a quick search for trade events such as industry conferences, webinars, lectures, and trade missions in a particular country or within all countries.

Export Assistance Centers Widget – provides direct access to the U.S. Export Assistance Centers (USEACs) that have been assigned to all of the 40,000+ zip codes in the United States. The widget enables your customers to do a quick search for search for both a zip code and a USEAC. Each center has specialists on hand for each particular region.

International Office Locations Widget — provides direct access to ITA offices and centers around the world. The widget enables your customers to do a quick search for an office in a particular city or country. Each office has specialists on hand for each particular region.
