Merchant ID option

Product now has new option "Merchant ID". This option is taken from the Amazon product page if "Take prices from Amazon directly (not API)" is set to yes. Using this option you link product in your site with exact product on Amazon.

The way to set a Merchant ID option.

If you wish to set a Merchant ID for certain product you need to add the string &m= to the Merchant ID value. Example:

before
A28H8DQ1RFFWSQ
after
&m=A28H8DQ1RFFWSQ

Check how Merchant ID option works with our extension.

Synchronization button

There is a button "Sync" in the Magento Admin Panel --> WP: Amazon Import --> Synchronization with Amazon page next to the "Reload" button. It synchronizes chosen products using Magento extension synchronization options. "Reload" button completely reloads all Amazon API data without checking synchronization options. Check the Magento Admin Panel screenshot below.

Variation Product type

In this version products which have Variation Product type are ignored while import process. Such products do not have a price (Configurable Product analog in Magento).

Since version 4.6.0 all products variations are available for download.

Variation Product type

Amazon Variation Product type

The first simple product of this Variation Product is imported instead. So the Magento extension does not support Configurable Products import.

The first simple Amazon product

Check the Amazon product page screenshot below.

Since version 4.6.0 all products variations are available for download.

New PHP files

Magento extension package now has two new php files
wp_amazon_import_products_remove_3.3.0.php
wp_amazon_import_products_reinstall.php

You can find them here
/ app / code / local / WP / Amazonimportproducts

The file wp_amazon_import_products_remove_3.3.0.php completely removes all Magento extension files and all product options created by the extension. In order to run this file you need to put it to the root Magento folder and run in through your browser.
Ex. http://yourdomain.com/wp_amazon_import_products_remove_3.3.0.php

The file wp_amazon_import_products_reinstall.php reinstalls the Magento extension.
If the extension update was failed (for example if MerchandID option still does not appear after the update) you need to place the file to Magento root folder and run it through your browser.
Ex. http://yourdomain.com/wp_amazon_import_products_reinstall.php

Login to the Magento Admin Panel after that. The installation script would run again correctly.

Redirect routine to Amazon cart

Fixed redirect routine which leads to Amazon cart. Now it works as expected.
