    Locally Stored Product Images – All product images are stored on your server allowing them to be resized, optimized, displayed lightning fast, pinned on Pinterest and indexed by Google.

    This feature will get you in trouble these days.

    (h) You will not store or cache Product Advertising Content consisting of an image, but you may store a link to Product Advertising Content consisting of an image for up to 24 hours. You may store other Product Advertising Content that does not consist of images for caching purposes for up to 24 hours, but if you do so you must immediately thereafter refresh and re-display the Product Advertising Content by making a call to the PA API or retrieving a new Data Feed and refreshing the Product Advertising Content on your application immediately thereafter. Unless otherwise notified by us, you may store individual Amazon Standard Identification Numbers (ASINs) for an indefinite period until the termination of this License. Notwithstanding the foregoing, if your application includes a client application, the client application may not store or cache Product Advertising Content. Upon our request you will, within three business days of our request, furnish us with a copy of any client application that includes or uses Product Advertising Content for the purpose of verifying your compliance with this License.

    Just a heads up.

    Hi WCat,

    That’s totally true! That’s one of the reasons why our Datafeedr WooCommerce Importer plugin has never supported Amazon.

    Amazon’s Product API Licensing Agreement is very restrictive in terms of what you can, cannot and must do.

    And because of their restrictive license, we decided from Day One that our Datafeedr WooCommerce Importer plugin would not have the ability to import Amazon products into your WooCommerce store. It was not been a popular decision but it was a necessary one.

    If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to ask.

    Thanks
    Eric
