Use Cases and Code Samples

1. Generating Product Descriptions


Create engaging product descriptions in seconds.

Provide as many details and a bag of parameters of the product to get the best marketing introduction possible. Comes in handy with populating product catalogue data and bulk product processing. Here’s how:
$statusUrl = \SharpApiService::generateProductIntro(
  'Razer Blade 16 Gaming Laptop: NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4090-13th Gen Intel 
  24-Core i9 HX CPU-16 inch Dual Mode Mini LED (4K UHD+ 120Hz & FHD+ 240Hz)
   - 32GB RAM - 2TB SSD - Compact GaN Charger - Windows 11 NVIDIA 
  GEFORCE RTX 4090 GRAPHICS,13TH GEN INTEL CORE I9 13950HX PROCESSOR',
 'English'
); 

$result = \SharpApiService::fetchResults($statusUrl); 
$result->getResultJson();

Example Response:
{
  "product_intro": "Experience the ultimate gaming and content creation 
    powerhouse with the Razer Blade 16 Gaming Laptop. Featuring the NVIDIA 
    GeForce RTX 4090 graphics and the 13th Gen Intel Core i9 HX CPU, this 
    laptop delivers unparalleled performance for both gaming and 
    resource-intensive tasks. The next-gen dual-mode Mini LED display
    offers stunning 4K resolution for creative work and ultra-fast
    refresh rates for smooth gameplay. With a compact GaN charger
    and an anodized aluminium unibody, this laptop is designed 
    for portability without compromising on power and durability."
}

2. Product Review Sentiment Analysis


Understand your customers better by analyzing sentiments in their reviews.

Parses the customer’s product review and provides its sentiment (POSITIVE/NEGATIVE/NEUTRAL) with a score between 0–100%. Great for sentiment report processing for any online store:
$statusUrl = \SharpApiService::productReviewSentiment(
  'This console has amazing graphics!'
); 

$result = \SharpApiService::fetchResults($statusUrl); 
$result->getResultJson();

Example Response:
{ 
  "opinion": "POSITIVE", 
  "score": 94 
}

3. Category Suggestions for Products


Automatically categorize products to enhance user navigation.

Generates a list of suitable categories for the product with relevance weights as a float value (1.0–10.0) where 10 equals 100%, the highest relevance score. Provide the product name and its parameters to get the best category matches possible. Comes in handy with populating product catalogue data via forms and bulk product processing.
$statusUrl = \SharpApiService::productCategories(
  'Razer Blade 16 Gaming Laptop: NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4090-13th Gen 
  Intel 24-Core i9 HX CPU - 16 inch Dual Mode Mini LED 
  (4K UHD+ 120Hz & FHD+ 240Hz) - 32GB RAM - 2TB SSD 
  - Compact GaN Charger - Windows 11', 'English'
); 

$result = \SharpApiService::fetchResults($statusUrl); 
$result->getResultJson();

Example Response:
[ 
  { 
    "name": "Gaming Laptops", 
    "weight": 10 
  }, 
  { 
    "name": "Computer Hardware", 
    "weight": 9 
  }, 
  { 
    "name": "Electronics", 
    "weight": 8 
  }, 
  { 
    "name": "Technology", 
    "weight": 7 
  } 
]

4. Personalized Thank You Emails


Automate personalized thank-you emails post-purchase as part of your marketing automation efforts.

The response content does not contain the title, greeting or sender info at the end so you can personalize the rest of the email more easily.
$statusUrl = \SharpApiService::generateThankYouEmail(
  '[IM From] Honey Mask 4.23oz | wash off type, real honey 38.7%, 
  Deep moisturization, Nourishment,Hydrating and Clear Complexion.'
  , 'English'
); 

$result = \SharpApiService::fetchResults($statusUrl); 
$result->getResultJson();

Example Response:
{ 
  "email": "We would like to sincerely thank you for purchasing 
    the [I'M From] Honey Mask 4.23oz | wash off type, real honey 38.7%, 
    Deep moisturization, Nourishment, Hydrating and Clear Complexion. 
    We appreciate your support and hope that our product will provide 
    your skin with the nourishment and hydration it needs. 
    If you have any questions or need further assistance, 
    please feel free to contact us. Your satisfaction is our priority, 
    and we are here to ensure that you have a positive experience 
    with our products. Thank you once again for choosing our products. 
    We value your trust and look forward to serving you again." 
}

5. Content Translation


Reach a global audience by translating any part of your product descriptions.

You can also use this endpoint to translate any part of your marketing automation workflow or communication with your customers. API supports 80 languages at the moment.
$statusUrl = \SharpApiService::translate(
  'This phone has the best camera on the market.', 
  'Spanish'
); 

$result = \SharpApiService::fetchResults($statusUrl); 
$result->getResultJson();

Example Response:
{ 
  "content": "Este teléfono tiene la mejor cámara del mercado.", 
  "from_language": "English", 
  "to_language": "Spanish" 
}

6. Spam Content Detection


Keep your product reviews clean and relevant. You can process any kind of user input via this method (like comments etc).

Provides a percentage confidence score and an explanation for whether it is considered spam or not. This information is useful for moderators to make a final decision.
$statusUrl = \SharpApiService::detectSpam(
  'Hello, this is John from Finance Plus. 
  I\'ve called before, We\'ve helped other individuals like you 
  improve their credit. Please give me a call later.'
); 

$result = \SharpApiService::fetchResults($statusUrl); 
$result->getResultJson();

Example Response:
{ 
  "pass": false, 
  "score": 80, 
  "reason": "The provided content is likely spam. 
    It exhibits characteristics common in spam messages, 
    including unsolicited outreach, a generic and impersonal tone, 
    and a call to action for credit improvement without specific 
    details about the individual situation. The mention of having called 
    before may be an attempt to create a false sense of familiarity. 
    The overall content raises suspicion of potential spam." 
}

7. Extracting Contact Information: Phones


Extract phone numbers and emails from customer inquiries efficiently.

The example below parses the provided text for any phone number and returns the original detected version and its E.164 format. It might come in handy in the case of processing and validating big chunks of data against phone numbers or f.e. if you want to detect phone numbers or emails in places where they’re not supposed to be.
$statusUrl = \SharpApiService::detectPhones(
  'Where to find us? Call with a sales tech advisor: 
  Call: 1800-394-7486 or our Singapore office +65 8888 8888'
); 

$result = \SharpApiService::fetchResults($statusUrl); 
$result->getResultJson();

Example Response:
[ 
  { 
    "parsed_number": "+18003947486", 
    "detected_number": "1800-394-7486" 
  }, 
  { 
    "parsed_number": "+6588888888", 
    "detected_number": "+65 8888 8888" 
  } 
]

8. Extracting Contact Information: Emails


Parses the provided text for any possible emails. It might come in handy in case of processing and validating big chunks of data against email addresses or if you want to check if in places where they’re not supposed to be or might be passed in a weird format (like the example below: Hidden_email[at]amazon.com)
$statusUrl = \SharpApiService::detectEmails(
  'Duis aute irure dolor in reprehenderit in voluptate velit esse 
  cillum dolore eu fugiat nulla pariatur. Excepteur sint occaecat 
  cupidatat non proident, sunt in culpa qui officia deserunt mollit 
  anim id est laborum. Contact us at example@email.com or 
  lorem.ipsum@email.com for more information. 
  Hidden_email[at]amazon.com'
); 

$result = \SharpApiService::fetchResults($statusUrl); 
$result->getResultJson();

Example Response:
[ 
  "example@email.com", 
  "lorem.ipsum@email.com", 
  "Hidden_email@amazon.com" 
]

9. Summarizing Text for Quick Insights


Quickly summarize long product details or reviews for easier consumption.

Just dump all the information and parameters about the product provided by the vendor for the best results. Perfect for generating marketing introductions of longer texts:
$statusUrl = \SharpApiService::summarizeText(
  'Xbox Wireless Controller - Carbon Black Includes Xbox Wireless 
  and Bluetooth technology for wireless gaming on supported consoles, 
  Windows 10 PCs, Android phones, and tablets. Stay on target with 
  a textured grip on the triggers, bumpers, and back case.

); 

$result = \SharpApiService::fetchResults($statusUrl); 
$result->getResultJson();

Example Response:
{ 
  "summary": "Experience gaming like never before with the Xbox 
    Wireless Controller in Carbon Black. This sleek controller 
    offers the freedom of wireless gaming on supported consoles,
