Get Info From Amazon

This feature is only available to clients who are approved for the Amazon Associates Program.

If you ever have issues with your Amazon AWS credentials that cannot be quickly resolved, you can always get limited info from Amazon MWS (Marketplace Web Service). Here's how this feature works.


Info from Amazon

Product information can often be pulled from an existing Amazon listing - even if the listing is not yours, and even if you do not have an Amazon account, and can include:

Amazon Title

Populates the Amazon Title field and can overwrite* the Product Name.

Description

Comes in as Long Description.

Images

Only the primary image on the Amazon listing will import by default. To import all listing images, select Enable download non-primary images from Amazon in Client Settings.

Bullet points

Manufacturer

If Create Manufacturer when get info from Amazon or Create Product From Amazon is selected in Client Settings.

Shipping Weight and Dimensions

By default, no weights and dimensions are pulled because weights and dimensions are often entered incorrectly (typically, higher) on Amazon. To get weights and dimensions, select Enable update weights and dimensions from Amazon in Client Settings.
