    I've read and re-read the technical documentation, but can't seem to figure out the code for this:

    I want to integrate with <script> in a page the bestsellers for a subsection an Amazon, Bed and Bath. The Amazon page URL is:
    10http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/tg/
    new-for-you/top-sellers/-/bedbath/57792/
    ref=etk_hg_bb__hp_rs_3_14/002-1910644-7095218
    (I wrapped the URL, which strangely begins with a 10).
    I want the results to show as a grid with pictures:
    grid=c:3,n,r:2,p,m,u

    If someone could be so kind as to show me a sample like this I could do a bunch more pages, but I'm stuck.
    Thanks,
    Tom

    Amazon.com does not provide access to that URL through Amazon.com Web Services (AWS). Not all Amazon.com URL's are accessible through AWS. Only URL's that are "browse" URL's are accessible through AWS.

    The Amazon.com URL of their "Bed & Bath" section is http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/tg/browse/-/1057792/

    This URL looks like "/browse/-/NUMBER/". This indicates that it is an amazon.com "browse" URL. The NUMBER indicates the browse number to use with ae.pl. In the above link, the browse number is 1057792.

    Therefore, you would use something like the following to link to bestselling "Bed & Bath" products:

    http://www.bime.com/cgi-bin/ae.pl?ty...t&mode=1057792

    To use it in a <SCRIPT> and to display results in a grid, add those options (and any other options you want) to the ae.pl URL:

    <SCRIPT SRC="/cgi-bin/ae.pl?script&type=best&mode=1057792&grid=c:3,n,r:2,p,m,u">

    FYI, if you want to link to all of Bed & Bath, then use something like:

    http://www.bime.com/cgi-bin/ae.pl?ty...e&mode=1057792

    NOTE: Some products do not have product images that are accessible through AWS even though the amazon.com website may show an image for the product. The problem is with Amazon.com's AWS.
