Usage guide

Basic usage:

from amazon_paapi import AmazonApi
amazon = AmazonApi(KEY, SECRET, TAG, COUNTRY)
item = amazon.get_items('B01N5IB20Q')[0]
print(item.item_info.title.display_value) # Item title

Get multiple items information:

items = amazon.get_items(['B01N5IB20Q', 'B01F9G43WU'])
for item in items:
    print(item.images.primary.large.url) # Primary image url
    print(item.offers.listings[0].price.amount) # Current price

Use URL insted of ASIN:

item = amazon.get_items('')

Get item variations:

variations = amazon.get_variations('B01N5IB20Q')
for item in variations.items:
    print(item.detail_page_url) # Affiliate url

Search items:

search_result = amazon.search_items(keywords='nintendo')
for item in search_result.items:
    print(item.item_info.product_info.color) # Item color

Get browse node information:

browse_nodes = amazon.get_browse_nodes(['667049031', '599385031'])
for browse_node in browse_nodes:
    print(browse_node.display_name) # The name of the node

Get the ASIN from URL:

from amazon_paapi import get_asin
asin = get_asin('')


Throttling value represents the wait time in seconds between API calls, being the default value 1 second. Use it to avoid reaching Amazon request limits.

amazon = AmazonApi(KEY, SECRET, TAG, COUNTRY, throttling=4)  # Makes 1 request every 4 seconds
amazon = AmazonApi(KEY, SECRET, TAG, COUNTRY, throttling=0)  # No wait time between requests
