    I am developing my website on my localhost, and in a month will start it up.
    Can I get some dummy IDs so I can do some development?

    And also, after I get the website up and running, is this plugin bound to the server ip address?

    In other words, can I include the amazon code on my localhost, and then upload this to the host server?

    The page I need help with: [log in to see the link]

    Yes, it will work on your localhost. Get your API keys, install, and you’ll be ready to develop your site.
    And no, the code is not IP dependent. If you move your site via FTP, it should work.
    Amazon does recommend that you use a https cert, so you may need to figure out how to set that up on your localhost for easy migration to your host server.
    Hope that helps.

    I am not going to place any orders from my local host, why would I need to setup a https cert on my localhost?
