ProductAdvertisingAPI 5.0 Python SDK

Project description

Product Advertising API 5.0 SDK for Python (v1)

About This Package

This repository contains the official Product Advertising API 5.0 Python SDK called paapi5-python-sdk that allows you to access the Product Advertising API.

The only changes we made to Amazon's original package were:

  1. Modifying this README file to reflect the correct pip package information
  2. Modifying the file
