With our PDF to CSV, JSON, TXT, XLS, and XML API tools, you can convert your PDFs into other file formats, which can be used with various computer programs and apps. Our APIs are not only easy to use, but they also offer several business benefits. Read on to discover why PDF to CSV, JSON, TXT, XLS, and XML API tools stand out.
Benefits of PDF to CSV, JSON, TXT, XLS, and XML API Methods
Credits Based Payments
You do not need to buy a license to use PDF to CSV, TXT, JSON, XLS, and XML tools. Instead, you can pay as little as $4.99 per 125 credits, and start your conversions. That translates to $0.04 per credit, and you can get them for as low as $0.0033 if you buy them in bulk.
That eliminates the need to use free tools that can lead to lawsuits, due to information fraud. That can happen if those free tools are extracting and sharing private data from your documents, with third parties.
Easy Integration with Third-Party Tools
As a business, the need to streamline your technical operations and take advantage of the best tools is always there. That means you may need to integrate tools such as ours, with those from other software providers.
We are pleased to let you know we can help you do that by setting our APIs to run from your on-premise servers. You can also integrate our APIs with Zapier, Integromat, UiPath, among others.
And if you have in-house developers, we have SDKs available. They can use them to create new services, which can integrate with our API tools, easily. To get all additional services, you can contact us at any time, for further discussions.
How to Use PDF to CSV, JSON, TXT, XLS, and XML API with Large Files
When processing large files, the PDF to CSV, JSON, TXT, XLS, and XML API can time out after 25 seconds, and return an error, instead of the processed files. You can stop that from happening by forcing the API to run in the background.
To do that, you must set the “async” mode to “true”, which will instruct the API method to create a background process. The API will also return a unique ID for that job, using the “jobId” property, which you can then use to identify that job.
How to Upload PDF Files and Call PDF to CSV API Method
Step 1: Request Upload and Access URLs
Use “/file/upload/get-presigned-url” to request a temporary upload and access URLs. That will output “presignedUrl” for uploading your files, and “url” for accessing the file.
Step 2: Upload File
Next, use PUT to upload your file to “presignedUrl”, which you got from Step 1.
Step 3: Call API Method
Using the “URL” param from Step 1 as the input, call the API method. Moreover, set “async” param to “true”, to run the API in the background and return the job’s ID, under the param “jobId”, along with the job’s out URL/s.
Step 4: Check Job Status
To get a “success” status when the job is completed, run the “/job/check” API method.
Step 5: Download File
Once you get a “success” status from “/job/check”, you can download the file from the output URL/s, which you received in Step 3.
