Attention ManyChat developers

We have developed an API (Application Programming Interface) to make it easy for your bot to access weather anywhere in Australia and we now support the USA as well.

WillyWeather’s API is fantastic but we save you a lot of time and effort working out how to use it plus we’ve value added it.

In addition to the weather, we provide a bunch of other useful fields you can use in your bot like an icon indicating sunny, cloudy, rainy, stormy etc., plus Beaufort wind force rating, cloud descriptions and tomorrow’s forecast. You can even get the weather and wind in “x” hours time from now which is great for tour operators needing to know weather conditions at the time of their tours and customers booking tours at certain times.

The API has been thoroughly tested with ManyChat and is being used by bots we’ve developed for our customers like King George Sound Safari.

If you’re interested in testing out our API free for 14 days, please get in contact with us.

The API is hosted on Google’s Cloud Platform.

How much does access to the API cost?

USD $6.95 per month or USD $69.95 per year if paid yearly.

AUD $9.95 per month or AUD $99.95 per year if paid yearly (both including GST).
