Amazon Merchant API: Overview
Using Amazon Merchant API you can get results from Amazon product listings and related data. The returned results are specific to the specified keyword, language and location parameters. We emulate set location with the highest accuracy so that the results you receive will match the actual search results for the specified parameters at the time of task setting. You can always check the returned results accessing the
check_url in the Incognito mode to make sure the received data is entirely relevant. Note that user preferences, search history, and other personalized search factors are ignored by our system and thus would not be reflected in the returned results.

Amazon Merchant API supports only the Standard method of data retrieval. It requires making separate POST and GET requests. Using this method, you can retrieve the results after our system collects them.
Alternatively, you can specify
postback_url when setting a task, and we will notify you on completion of tasks or send them to you respectively.
If you use the Standard method without specifying
postback_url, you can receive the list of
id parameters for all completed tasks using the ‘Tasks Ready’ endpoint. It is designed to provide you with a list of completed tasks, which haven’t been collected yet. Then, you can retrieve the results using the ‘Task GET’ endpoint.
Learn more about task completion and obtaining a list of completed tasks in this help center article.
You can send up to 2000 POST and GET API calls per minute in total, with each POST call containing no more than 100 tasks. Contact us if you would like to raise the limit.
Priorities and cost
The Standard method has two different priorities that stand for the relative speed of task execution and have different prices:
1. Normal priority;
2. High priority.
The cost can be calculated on the Pricing page.
