API Parameters
Customise the response from the Amazon APAI by adding parameters to your request.
IMPORTANT! The engine parameter should always be set to amazon!
The Amazon API is a powerful Amazon scraping tool, made easy to use. Basically, in order to scrape Amazon, all you have to do is send a GET request to our official endpoint, followed by the parameters you chose to customise your request.
The Amazon API uses general parameters (applicable to any search type) and search type specific parameters (applicable to specific search types only). We will cover the search type specific parameters in each search category.
