Please find below a more detailed set of instructions on how to find your Amazon details needed for InstantAzon, simply follow the steps below:
Before applying for Amazon Associates approval, we'd suggest you build out your site with some content included, like articles, videos, reviews etc. If you already have a blog or working website online then you can use that instead to get approval.
STEP 1 - Join Amazon Associates for the Country you wish to use. You can join Amazon.com Associates (United States) here. You can view more Countries to join Amazon Associates from here - Canada, China, France, Germany, India, Japan, Italy, Spain, United Kingdom.
Once you have signed up you will get your Amazon Associates ID, save this, as it is needed for InstantAzon in the Amazon Associates ID section.
After you sign in your Amazon Associates account, in the Amazon Associates page, choose Tools and then choose Product Advertising API. *Note that only the primary account owner of the Amazon Associate account can sign up for the Product Advertising API.
STEP 2 - Click on Join.
STEP 3 - After you have joined, on the Download credentials page, copy your Access Key and Secret Key and save them together somewhere safe. You should also Download Credentials too, as you will not be able to access your Secret Key later.
Your Access Key and Secret key are needed for InstantAzon in the Access Key & Secret Key section.
To add or delete your credentials, choose Manage Your Account and then choose Add Credentials to create a new pair or Delete to delete it. You can have a maximum of two access key pairs at a time.
STEP 4 - Now all you need to do is add in your Access Key, Secret Key and Associates ID into InstantAzon in the fields provided and Select the Country you chose to sign up for Amazon Associates for. Then click on 'Save as Config', you can name the config anything you like.
