Amazon Web Services Account Setup

Zeno theme uses Amazon Product API to search for products and to allow you to easily import them into your store with just a mouse click.

Once you have created your Amazon Associates account, you will now need to create an account for Amazon Web Services (here Amazon will give you an Access Key ID and a Secret Key).

The steps you need to follow are:

1) Log in to your Amazon Associates account (based on your locale).
2) Go to Tools -> Product Advertising API.

3) Click on the “Sign Up Now” button from the right, upper side of the page or on “Manage Your Account” if you already have an AWS account.

If you don’t have an account, fill up the required information and complete your registration.

NOTE: If you create a new account, it’s very important to use the same email address used to access your Amazon Associates account. If not, the API will not work properly.
