Rich preview for Amazon Links - Unfurler blocked by Amazon

0

Hi team, I have a customer who's akin to a "Pinterest for Education" where users create collections with pictures and other resources. I just got this question from them and I wonder if you had any suggestions to answer: "Just a quick query I am hoping you can provide some help with. When users add Amazon (retail) links to our site, Amazon blocks our link unfurler. All we really want is a nice image and a nice title. We integrate with a bunch of partner APIs already, and I was wondering if there is some program I can apply to to get access to snippets or something along those lines?" I can ask my customer for more background if it helps. Thank you.

Hello,

You may want to look into the Product Advertising API [1] which allows you to pull the latest product image, price, etc. The only requirement to using this API is you must be an active Amazon Affiliate.
