Demo Bookstore with Amazon Advertising API


As it is well known fact, Amazon.com is the largest store available on to the Internet, to find almost anything. Amazon invites enterprises/individual to become Amazon associates. It means you can be an Amazon Associate and can start selling Amazon products from your own WebSite (StoreFront). You can use your own imagination and preferences to have your own website design and flow of your website.
To get start with you need to become Amazon associate, which is very easy process and can be followed at http://amazon.com.
Then you need to integrate Amazon product details to your StoreFront by using Amazon EC2 - now known as - Amazon Product Advertisement API. Once you obtain your API key, you can authenticate all requests to retrieve desired data from Amazon. The Associate ID, supplied along with the request, makes you eligible to get commission on the selling.
Please remember all the above mention stuff belongs to Amazon.com only and you have to check their website for details, understanding and queries.

It allows you to browse all the Books available at Amazon in a very clean and user-friendly way. The payment stuff is handled by Amazon in its secure environment for customer&#039s safety.
