Catalog Items API v2022-04-01 Use Case Guide

How to use the Catalog Items API.

API Version: 2022-04-01

What is the Catalog v2022-04-01 API?

Using the Selling Partner API for Catalog Items (Catalog Items API), you can retrieve information about items in the Amazon catalog. Refer to the Catalog Items API Reference for details about API operations and associated data types and schemas.

Key Features

  • Retrieve detailed item information: The Catalog Items API provides details about items in the Amazon catalog such as

    • Summarized item details
    • Attributes
    • Product identifiers
    • Sales rankings
    • Relationships
    • Images

    Vendors may retrieve additional vendor-specific details.

  • Search by identifiers or keywords. The Catalog Items API allows you to search for Amazon catalog items and associated information either by identifiers (such as UPC or EAN identifiers, up-to 20 per request) or by keywords. The same item details are available when performing a search query or when retrieving items explicitly by ASIN.

Terminology

  • ASIN: Amazon Standard Identification Number that identifies an item in the Amazon catalog.

  • SKU: Selling partner-supplied Stock Keeping Unit that identifies a seller or vendor listing. Data from one or more selling partner listings are reconciled into items in the Amazon catalog.

  • Variation: Variations are a type of relationship between Amazon catalog items that group items that vary by color, size, or other attributes. A parent Amazon catalog item is used to group the child items into the variation family. For example, one shirt may be offered in multiple sizes and colors. In this scenario, each distinct size and color combination is represented as its own item in the Amazon catalog with a parent item that groups them to provide a single detail page on the Amazon retail websites.

Paging in the response to a search for items in the Amazon catalog

When a call to the searchCatalogItems operation produces a response that exceeds the pageSize, pagination occurs. This means the response is divided into individual pages, where each page is returned in successive calls. To retrieve the next page or the previous page, you must pass the nextToken value or the previousToken value as the pageToken parameter in the next request.

You get the first page of results when you call the searchCatalogItems operation and provide no page token. You then iterate through the rest of the pages using the nextToken page token provided in successive responses.

Page tokens are special values that are decoded to determine which page is requested and how many pages are before or after.

If the next or previous page is not available, the corresponding page token attribute (nextToken or previousToken respectively) will not be present in the pagination object.

Examples:

When the response does not exceed the pageSize, there is no pagination, so there is no nextToken or previousToken:

"pagination": {
},

When the response exceeds the pageSize and pagination occurs:

For the first page, there is no previous page, so there is no previousToken:

"pagination": {
  "nextToken": "XXXXXX"
},

For the last page, there is no next page, so there is no nextToken:

"pagination": {
  "previousToken": "XXXXXX"
},

For all other pages:

"pagination": {
  "nextToken": "XXXXXX",
  "previousToken": "XXXXXX"
},

Note: Page tokens are specific to the request. You cannot change the page size on the next request when using a page token.

Note: Even though there can be more than 1000 ASINs that match the search criteria, the maximum number of results that can be returned and paged through is limited to 1000. For example, if the caller sets the pageSize to 10, the maximum number of possible pages is 100.
