Repricing Info - Is Amazon APIs Used For Data?
29 Sep 2011
Hi,

I'm just trying to better understand how exactly these repricing websites / softwares work to gather all marketplace seller offers?

Do they just use the Amazon APIs (i.e. Product Advertising API, Amazon MWS API)? Or do they contain their own custom code that is able to retrieve this information from Amazon?

Thank you,

I think that "CCs" has shared somewhat related info to what you are asking here, I'm not sure though.

Would you take a look at it and tell if this is what you have been looking for around?

If not, I will give it another shot to find out something useful.

Hi olimits7,

I believe they use the Amazon Product Advertising API. Reference: www.amazonsellercommunity.com/...message.jspa?messageID=2436275
