Here's How to Get Your Amazon Product API Keys
Lasso Pro doesn't require Amazon API Keys. But if you're using Lasso Lite or prefer to use your API Keys, getting your Amazon Associates API Key and Secret Key only takes a few steps!
1. Log into Your Amazon Associates Account
Once you're logged into your Amazon Associates account, hover over the "Tools" button on the navigation bar and choose "Product Advertising API."
2. Join or Add Credentials
New API Credentials
If you've just created a brand new Amazon Associates account or have never requested to use the Product Advertising API, click "Join."
That will bring up a new page with both an Access Key and a Secret Key.
NOTE: Once you leave this page, you won't have access to the Secret Key, so we recommend you download your credentials.
Existing API Credentials
If you've already joined the Product Advertising API and downloaded the credentials, please locate them and ensure you have both the Access Key and Secret Key.
If you don't have the credentials downloaded or available, click "Add Credentials" to generate a new Access Key and Secret Key.
NOTE: Amazon only allows you to have two sets of API Keys.
Where Do I Add Amazon API Keys to Lasso?
In Lasso, navigate to Settings.
Then, choose the Amazon tab in the top right.
There, you'll see the "Amazon Product API" section in the righthand column.
This is where you can add your Access Key and Secret Key. You'll also need to indicate which country your Amazon API Keys are associated with.
Can I Use Lasso Without Amazon API Keys?
Yes! You can use Lasso Pro without Amazon API keys, whether that's because you don't have access or prefer not to use them.
Lasso will always grab the price, image, and title of your Amazon products while keeping you compliant with the Amazon Associates terms of service. This is the case even if you don't have API credits or don't add your keys to Lasso.
Note: If you're using Lasso Lite for free, you need your Amazon Product Advertising API Keys. Once you add them, Lasso can then pull your product information automatically.
Why Should I Add My Amazon API Credentials to Lasso?
If you're using Lasso with a paid subscription, adding your Amazon API keys will speed up the processing time for your Amazon data. It's the quickest way to get price, image, and title data.
However, it's entirely optional. Lasso will still pull Amazon data for you if you leave the "Amazon Product API" section blank. The choice is totally yours!
