FAQ - PAAPI Access Changes Notification

Upcoming PA API changes FAQ:

I received a message that says my PA API access is going to be removed.

Effective - January 23, 2019, in order to retain access to PA API you must have referred qualified sales in the last 30 days. If you lose access, when your site or application attempts to call PA API you will receive an error message. PA API access can only be restored by referring qualified sales to Amazon. If you have lost PA API access due to not referring qualified sales in the last 30 days, you will still be able to use our other product linking tools to link to Amazon, such as Site Stripe. Your PA API access will be automatically restored once you drive referring sales to Amazon.

 

I received a message that says my PA API access is going to be removed. Why is the AC notification still up if I’ve driven qualified sales in the last 30 days?

 

If you have referred qualified sales since having seen the notification displayed in Associates Central, you may disregard the notification as your PA API access will be automatically restored on 23-Jan-2019. The notification will also expire at this time.

 

I received a message that says my PA API request limit is going to be reduced.

Your PA API request limit will be reduced if you did not refer the required number of sales as defined in the Efficiency Guidelines. PA API request limits can only be increased by referring additional qualified sales to Amazon. If you exceed your request limit, you will receive an error message from PA API.
