Amazon Associates ECS Shutdown Announcement

Time to start rewriting loads and loads of php…

Amazon are ending the ECS which was a great way to import items from amazon to affillate site..

Basically you now need to use the new formatting which has been around for a while now.. But many of my person site still import using the old code 🙁 … ah well..

The new format is really good.. You pick which bits of info you need from the xml feed and import / display on your site lowering bandwidth and making sites a lot faster..

We are writing to remind you that the Amazon E-Commerce Web Service 3.0 is scheduled to be deprecated on March, 31 2008. Our monitoring indicates that your associate tag is being passed into calls to Amazon E-Commerce Web Service 3.0. After March 31, 2008, we will no longer accept Amazon ECS 3.0 requests. Please make sure to contact your development team or application provider to ensure that they have upgraded to Amazon Associates Web Service 4.0 (formerly Amazon E-commerce Web Service 4.0) so that you or your customers are not affected by the shutdown.
