    Can someone point me to the location of the actual feed? I'm not in need of the snazzy little tools or the Cusimano scripts.

    I just need the feed in the usual tab/pipe/whatever delimited text file. I'd even take XML.

    Anyone got the link or location in the Asscoiates section?

    OK, no replies. Let's try this:

    I'm trying to get all the products Amazon sells into an XML file for importing into my own database. Basically I'm looking for a text based datafeed. I can create my own if I can get the dev kit to spit out all products and prices. Huge, I know. Is this possible?

    Sorry, I can't help you but I would also be interested in that. Hope someone knows something.

    Amazon doesn't work like that - there is no data feed file as such available.

    The following may have the odd technical snafu in it, but broadly:

    What they have is AWS - Amazon Web Services - which is an interface to their database. Suitably formatted queries return XML results - designed for use a product, a query, a browse node (category) at a time. The key thing is it's all designed to be used live - not for syphoning. Don't know, but I'd guess they have some safeguards in place to prevent syphoning via AWS.

    I also think you have to get some kind of developers licence/key to have access at all.

    Bottom line - whether you want to integrate Amazon products into sites or create a complete Amazon-based site, I find it hard to imagine there's a better (economical, fast start, flexible) way to do it than via the Cusimano script.
