New blog post! Manage your product listings lifecycle with Selling Partner API

The Selling Partner API has a suite of APIs that can simplify your product listing experience:

SP-API Throttling Adjustments

Effective August 31, 2022, we will be adjusting the rates across select API operations within the Catalog Items API, Product Fees API, and Product Pricing API. These adjustments will lower the rates of the 1x1 APIs. We encourage you to call the equivalent batch APIs for use cases requiring a higher volume of data.

software_update_supported_to_date Attribute Added to XSDs for EU Marketplaces

As of April 26, 2022, Amazon will introduce a new attribute called software_update_supported_to_date across 49 Product Types and related XSDs in 8 European marketplaces. This is a new, optional attribute, representing the last date until which software updates will be supported by manufacturers for smart devices. The goal is to comply with the upcoming Omnibus Directive, under which product detail pages for Digital Goods must include details of the product’s functionality including applicable technical protection measures, its compatibility and its interoperability (“Functionality Information”).

Application Authorization Limits and Listing Restrictions

Beginning April 25, 2022, we will introduce application authorization limits and restrict application listing on Amazon Seller Central Partner Network to public applications. These limits are dependent on the Developer’s data access type (public or private developer) which was selected in your Developer Profile.

Important Notice: Discontinued Support - LWA Tokens can no longer retrieve PII in Selling Partner API

Use of LWA tokens to try and retrieve this information will result in a failure. The operations listed below will require the use of RDT and will no longer accept LWA tokens.
