How to get product info by ASIN?


#1

Hi all .

I am very new to Amazon Platform so I am kind of lost and hope you can direct me to the right place.
What I want to do is simple: to programmatically get product info by ASIN. More specifically, when I input ASIN into a textbox on my webpage, I want the product’s name to appear next to it. It’s just that simple.

My questions are:

  1. Which API provides this function? MWS or SP?
  2. I have been able to register a seller account and a developer account. When I try to create a new APP, I can only choose SP API as app type. Why is that? How can I enable other app types?
  3. Is there any documentation or tutorial regarding getting product info by ASIN?

Thank you in advance.

  1. For now you can use the MWS Products API, but will have to switch the the SP-API by the end of 2023.

  2. So apparently they won’t allow you to use MWS.
