    Hi,

    Did it use to work before?

    yes, then it stopped from one day to the other.

    Can you test whether your keys are valid on Scratchpad?

    1. Go to Scratchpad (https://webservices.amazon.com/scratchpad/index.html).
    2. From the left sidebar, navigate to “Select operation” -> “SEARCH” -> “ItemSearch”
    3. Fill the form.
    a) In the “Common parameters” section, fill the followings,
    – Marketplace: webservices.amazon.com
    – Associate Tag: your associate tag issued by Amazon Associates
    – Access Key ID: the one issed by Amazon Associates
    – Secret Access Key: the one issed by Amazon Associates
    b) In the “Request parameters” section, fill the followings,
    – Searchindex: All
    – Keywords: WordPress
    – ResponseGroup: Images, ItemAttributes, Offers (keep this untouched)
    4. Press the “Run request” button.

    If successful, products should be listed at the bottom part of the page. Let me know what you get.

    It tells that your keys have a problem. Maybe try recreating a new pair of keys. If it does not work, contact the Amazon Associates support about it.

    i tried making new keys many times. i will try to go to the horrible amazon help service then 🙁

    You know it used to be possible to create API keys on the AWS site only. But recently you can do so on the Amazon Associates site. Please see the To register as a Product Advertising API developer section on this page. If you have created keys on the AWS site, it may make a difference by creating keys on the Amazon Associates site. It’s worth trying the other way.
