Amazon API Limits

Submitted by stuartqwh on Mon, 2019-05-20 10:17 in

Hi David,

It appears that with the recent Amazon API changes I have hit the amazon API limits with the Amazon.php API plugin and am not making enough sales.

With debug turned on as described in another thread I see the error message limit reached etc.

How could I display just a link/banner to Amazon home page instead of the default "Sorry, no results found" message, or perhaps limit the number of calls and frequency of calls to the API?

Thank you for your time.

Hi Stuart,

Sure - in the Async API files you will find the following code:

print "<p>".translate("Sorry, no results found")."</p>";

html/searchresults_amazon.php (line 185)

html/prices_amazon.php (line 165)

To display arbitrary HTML e.g. your default affiliate link or banner, use:

print "
... your no results HTML here ...

Hope this helps!
