1.) Install Apipheny by opening the following link on desktop and then clicking the Install button in the Google Marketplace: https://apipheny.io/install

In this section, we’ll show you how to browse the Empire Flippers API documentation to find the endpoint that retrieves the information you need. If you already know your API URL, or you want to use the same example URL as us, just skip to Step 3.
First, open the Empire Flippers API documentation page: https://empireflippers.com/empire-flippers-public-listings-api/
This page contains general information about the Empire Flippers API and a list of APIs and endpoints:

Now go back to your Google Sheet and make sure that the Apipheny add-on is open on the Import tab. With the Import tab open, enter these details into the add-on:
API URL: In Step 2, we explained how you can find the Empire Flippers REST API endpoint that you need. Now copy and paste your complete Empire Flippers API URL into the Apipheny add-on, where it says API URL Path, followed by any parameters required for your query (if applicable).
For this example, we are using the Niches & Monetizations API, which returns configuration options used within your applications, which includes the current list of niches and monetization that can be used to filter listings. This is what the whole URL looks like:
Headers aren’t required. You can leave this section blank in Apipheny.
