Amazon offers an online purchase service known as Amazon Marketplace. This platform allows individuals to sell their goods on an Amazon platform. It also allows small companies to sell their products without having to invest money into storage or logistics. It allows them to gain access to a large audience without spending money on marketing. Any individual or company can sell their products on this platform, that’s why there’s a great deal of variety!
This is why there are so many different types of products with different prices. Therefore it is important when purchasing any product that you find out its price history to be able to know if you are paying a good price compared to what it used to sell every time it was offered on the platform. As well as to be able to find out any discounts that may have happened in the past so that you can take advantage of them.
That is why today we are going to tell you about the newest tool that assists in obtaining information about any product on Amazon without hassle by using an API (Application Programming Interface). This will help you get all that information and help you save money! What is this new tool? It is called Get Current Pricing API, an application programming interface made for pricing products on sale or not on sale.
How does Get Current Pricing API extract information about any product?
This pricing tool uses two main but simple approaches: firstly, you must provide the name of the product or its URL (the link to the product). If neither of these work, you can also provide the ASIN code or the manufacturer code. Secondly, you choose whether you want historical pricing information or real-time pricing information. This can be done with an end point called Pricings’ Requests Endpoint and then selecting either historical or real-time prices. Lastly, you give your permission for the Get Current Pricing API to access your Amazon account by signing up and registering! And you are ready to obtain all this valuable information
