I’m a bit perplexed as to how Amazon intends for developers to export a customers catalog into their application when the SP-API differs so drastically from the XML feeds when it comes to product definitions.
As an example, the Item response from the SP-API lacks important information like:
- Standard Product ID
- Product Condition
- MSRP_emphasized text_
- Search Terms
And the list goes on. If a developer intends to import a customer’s catalog, how exactly does Amazon Intend they go about this? It seems like only a fraction of information about a product is actually exposed in a read fashion, while the write functionality supports their very verbose XSD Schema.
It seems like this isn’t a problem with MWS, but considering MWS is deprecated in favor of SP-API is there any way to retrieve the verbose definitions for products without MWS?
