Usage guide

Basic usage:

from amazon.paapi import AmazonAPI
product = amazon.get_product('B01N5IB20Q')

Get multiple product information:

product = amazon.get_products('B01N5IB20Q,B01F9G43WU')

Use URL insted of ASIN:

product = amazon.get_product('')

Get product variations:

product = amazon.get_variations('B01N5IB20Q')

Search product:

product = amazon.search_products(item_count=25, keywords='speaker')

Get the ASIN from a URL:

from import get_asin
asin = get_asin('')


Throttling value must be greater than 0 or False to disable it. This value throttles requests to a maximum of one request every 1 / value seconds. Note that this value is a per-worker throttling, so applications with multiple workers may make more requests per second. Throttling value is set by default to 0.8 or one request every 1.25 seconds.

amazon = AmazonAPI(KEY, SECRET, TAG, COUNTRY, throttling=0.5)  # Max one request every two seconds
amazon = AmazonAPI(KEY, SECRET, TAG, COUNTRY, throttling=False)  # Unlimited requests per second
