Common Request Parameters

  • AccessKey - An alphanumeric token that uniquely identifies you. For information about getting an Access Key, see Register for Product Advertising API.
  • SecretKey - A key that is used in conjunction with the Access Key to cryptographically sign an API request. To retrieve your Access Key or Secret Access Key, refer Register for Product Advertising API.
  • PartnerTag - An alphanumeric token that uniquely identifies a partner. In case of an associate, this token is the means by which Amazon identifies the Associate to credit for a sale. If the value for PartnerType is Associate, specify the store ID or tracking ID of a valid associate store from the requested marketplace as the value for PartnerTag. For example, If store-20 and store-21 are store id or tracking id of customer in United States and United Kingdom marketplaces respectively, then customer needs to pass store-20 as PartnerTag in all PAAPI requests for United States marketplace and store-21 as PartnerTag in all PAAPI requests for United Kingdom marketplace. To obtain an Partner Tag, see Sign up as an Amazon Associate.
  • PartnerType - The type of Amazon program. For more information on valid values, refer PartnerType Parameter.
  • Marketplace - Default value is US. Note: Host and Region are predetermined based on the marketplace value. There's is no need for you to add Host and Region as soon as you specify correct Marketplace value. If your region is not US or .com, please make sure you add the correct Marketplace value.

V4.0 to V5.0 Mapping

Due to major change from V4.0 to V5.0, most of the legacy application may not work properly since V4.0 is not supported anymore.

We're currently working on mapping some commonly used operations from the V4.0 and make it available soon to work with the V5.0.

In the mean time, please check amazon documentation on how to map.

FAQ

  • What are the available resources I can add in the parameter? Please refer to this page.

  • How can I do itemLookup using a UPC or EAN? You can lookup using searchItems operation. Add your UPC or EAN under the keyword parameter. More details here.

  • What if I included an invalid ASIN value in ASIN array parameter? You will get an error response but the result of the valid ASINs are still included in the response data. Please refer to the last portion of this page.

  • Is the addCart Operation still supported in V5.0? It is deprecated, But you can use Add to Cart form to integrate cart on your websites.
