If you want to promote your Amazon links but don't have any credits, all you need is Lasso. 😉
Note: If you're using Lasso Lite, you will still need to add your Amazon API keys to Lasso and use your own Amazon credits.
How to Use Lasso to Promote Amazon Products Without API Credits
The great thing about Lasso is that it works with or without API credits. You can even use it without ever adding your Amazon API keys if you want to!
It doesn't change your typical workflow in Lasso, either. All you have to do is add an Amazon link, just like normal.
1. Click the "Add New Link" button in the top right corner of Lasso.
2. Simply paste any new Amazon URL into the box and hit "Add Link".
3. Then, you'll see the Link Details page with pre-filled information straight from Amazon.
Lasso will grab the price, image, and title and comply with the Amazon Associates Terms of Service.
When Lasso doesn't detect any Amazon credits for your account, we'll pull directly from the API from our side. It's entirely fluid and won't affect your workflow at all.
This way, you still get updated information that's compliant with Amazon's Terms of Service without ever having to worry about running out of credits. If you do, Lasso has your back!
Can You Still Add Your Amazon API Keys to Lasso and Use Your Own Credits?
100%, you can still use your own Amazon API keys and credits with Lasso. You can read more about adding and using your Amazon credentials here.
It's entirely optional but will pull your Amazon product data faster when adding new links.
Do You Need to Use the Amazon API?
Yes, you need to use the Amazon API to display prices and images from Amazon. If you don't show the proper information with the appropriate disclosures (which Lasso also helps with), you'll be going against Amazon's Terms of Service and risking getting your Amazon Associates account closed.
That's why Lasso will always ensure you have access to the API even without your own keys or credits.
