Caching Responses

Caching responses reduces response time and consumes less network bandwidth. Cached responses improve performance by serving representations directly from the cache rather than the origin server.

You can configure caching in the Shopper APIs as follows:

  • Globally enabled for all cacheable resources
  • Enabled per resource
  • Set similarly for related resources, such as enabling caching for Offers and Product Offers resources

Only responses from GET requests are cached. Caching is not enabled by default. For more information about enabling and configuring caching, please contact your Digital River representative.
