I’ll make a few more posts on the Amazon services, shortly. How have you been getting on?
I’m just embarking on trying to integrate with the Amazon API using vb.net but I have to admit Im thoroughly confused! The documentation is sparse and contradictory with different information on .com to .co.uk versions which is sometimes at cross purposes. Its not even clear if this is still the preferred method of talking to Seller Central as I have seen some other newer version of an API.
I would be very grateful if you could post some more of your experiences and code, Im looking to upload inventory and dispatch files and download order files.
Seems like your experiences have been very similar to mine. I had a lot of trial an error, emails to our account manager on the Amazon side, and mixing / matching samples from around the web to get where I could successfully upload. I’ll get a post up shortly about uploading inventory items – although I didn’t write anything for dispatch or order files. We found a third-party solution that integrated with the existing order management software for that.
thanks a lot for this post, I do not know how would I figure this out without this post, I tried Amazon documents for few days and did not find anything.
I have just started working with Amazon API and using your post I am able to get the orders.
I’m glad to hear it was useful – thanks for the feedback! 🙂
I’m going now through the same hassle like everyone here, I was assigned to integrate with Amazon Order API in C#, using a web form. I did read the whole documentation provided by amazon but I’m just confused. Basically I need first to retrieve all orders from amazon and display them in a Order Gridview, and then by clicking on any order, I have to be able to show the order detail in a second Gridview. If someone can help me, I will be more than thankful, please I need an urgent help.
Thanks a lot
