Amazon API for searching/displaying products? - El Forum - 09-11-2010

I want to display products from Amazon using their API... Is that still possible?
The only thing I found on API on Amazon seems to be about their cloud services (http://aws.amazon.com/). Am I looking at the right place?

And is there any codeigniter library to search amazon and display products (or just a wrap up of the maybe existing Amazon API)?

Thanks!

Now I just need to find where in the world is the documentation on Amazon's website about those services. There so much acronyms like RDS, PBS, SS3, EC3... man, come on, be CLEAR! KISS!! (sorry Smile )

Am I stupid or what?!

OK, here's the page of the documentation of all Amazon's API. Fine.
http://aws.amazon.com/documentation/

Now, tell me, where in the world is the documentation about how to access product information?? I don't want to access your freakin too complicated service to scale my website with 3 visitors per month, I want to display your products and sell them. But it looks like you don't want me to sell them eh? =E

Thanks. I ended finding something... There's a section for this api on the website but somehow the link to that section doesn't seems to be anywhere (I found it from anonther website) :
http://developer.amazonwebservices.com/connect/kbcategory.jspa?categoryID=5

And here's an example of displaying products that I was able to use : http://www.arizonaseoconsultant.net/top-sellers-code/

Another great PHP script that search the store with a lot of parameters : http://www.chipdir.nl/amazon/ -> I'm going to use that one, it's really nice!
