    Amazon UK - Buy From Amazon link sometimes not working
    Hi

    Apologies if this has been mentioned in the forum already, but I have
    only just noticed it.

    Basically, for Amazon UK script (and I used www.grandshop.co.uk
    as the example), it seems that 'buy from amazon' link doesn't work, if:

    * You can also 'buy from amazon jersey' at the amazon site
    * You can't buy from Amazon but you can buy from a. n. other vendor

    No item is added to cart, or an item of value 0.00 is added.

    It seems that when the item is available from amazon uk,
    but not amazon jersey, then 'buy from amazon' link works, and the
    item gets added automatically.

    So, is this a ae.pl script change or a change in the data that
    amazon send or what?

    Obviously, there is a large potential loss of earnings when the
    site visitor 'buys from amazon' and nothing happens.

    (For examples go to http://www.grandshop.co.uk/amazon/ty...e/mode_dvd-uk/ )

    Thanks in advance,
    Steve

    PS I have raised this as a Support issue.

    It appears to be a problem at Amazon.co.uk. I am waiting for Amazon.co.uk to reply to my inquiry.

    I've been told that the problem has been raised with Amazon AWS and they will review it when they have a chance to do so. In the mean time, edit ae.ini and set:

    addto.addcart no

    The "no" setting of addto.addcart will make the "Buy from amazon.co.uk" button go to the product's details page at amazon.co.uk rather than trying to add the item to the amazon.co.uk shopping cart. The user will then have to click the "Add to Shopping Basket" button at amazon.co.uk. Once amazon.co.uk fixes the problem, you can go back to: addto.addcart yes
