Where do you need to signup for the Amazon API?
« on: 2017-10-12, 01:21:18 AM »
Hi, in the wiki the link for the amazon api points to affiliate-program.amazon.com
ist that actually correct? Seems like it's a process to sign up with something completely different, rather than app development or API access.

I registered here: https://affiliate-program.amazon.com/
After registration, you go to Amazon Product Advertising API and get the keys.

Is there anyway of getting around having to provide a web address. I use my system internaly only. I don't have an external site.

for new customers you need to provide a web address - amazon will even check the homepage to make sure, that you really use the API for product referrals.
