Amazon is for the first time giving Web developers access to technology for all its six global websites
The Amazon E-Commerce Service (ECS) is now available for Amazon’s sites for Canada (Amazon.ca) and France (Amazon.fr), along with the support already offered for Amazon.com, Amazon.co.jp, Amazon.co.uk, and Amazon.de.
The new release means that developers can make money by building applications specifically for these sites or broader applications that integrate all Amazon-branded sites worldwide.
They can then earn a referral fee as an Amazon Associate when users of their sites make purchases on any Amazon site. They can also more effectively price their products for sale on any Amazon Marketplace worldwide.
All the documentation, code samples and sample applications that developers need to begin using ECS for Amazon-branded site, are available at www.amazon.com/webservices.
