Use this API to create your own marketplace or to boost your own sales on your store. Get historical prices and much more.
What Do You Need?
First of all, you need to register in Amazon’s website. When you do that, you will be given an access key and a secret key; make sure to save both of these codes as they are what you will use to access the API.
Second, sign up for an API key; you have to subscribe before getting one but it is completely free of charge.
Third, in the API Documentation, find the endpoint that says “Product Type API” and then click on “PHP”.
Finally, you receive an access code that must be kept private and secret. It is an alphanumeric combination of up to 64 characters long.
This code will help you with all of your requests to the Product Lookup API; it is unique and made just for you. You will use it as a bearer token in all your requests.
How Does It Work?
To get started with the Product Lookup API, go ahead, and sign up for it as we just explained before. After that, you will be given an access key and a bearer token like we just explained before.
Once you have all this information and codes, you must insert the product URL (this part is not included in PHP) and make the request. This data can also be used to retrieve product information by entering the ASIN code or product name, and it provides a list of products similar to the one requested along with their prices and ratings. And also, historical prices from 2016-02 -07 — 2018 –07 are available for each of these four year periods (7 days/period). The products’ current prices will also be included in this list for each of these periods. And also, there is no limitation on the number of requests you can make.
