Browse Node API

We are introducing a new BrowseNodeLookup operation that provides information pertaining to a Browse Node. Browse Nodes are product categories that Amazon creates to segment products based on pre-defined and/or dynamic criteria. BrowseNodeLookup has been one of the most frequently requested features by ECS users and we’re thrilled to announce the availability of this feature. ECS users can use this operation to benefit from Amazon’s merchandising structure in categorizing products on their Web site and to get the information needed to make Browse Node-specific search queries.

To learn more about the BrowseNodeLookup operation, please refer to the online documentation at .

It is worth noting that many developers asked for this feature during the beta test of ECS 4.0, and that we did everything within our power to get this feature up and running in a very short amount of time.
