What do I need?

Important note: Due to the new Amazon API v5 it is currently not possible to use a Browse Node ID. As soon as Amazon extends its API, we will be able to implement the function again. More information about the new Amazon API can be found here.

Here you can find all product groups available for Bestsellers.

Displaying a bestseller list

Using keywords

Shortcode

[amazon bestseller="4k monitor" items="2"]

Output

Note: This is an exemplary screenshot. No real-time data. Live demonstration can be found here.

By adding the attribute “items” you can specify the amount of products to be displayed. The default amount is 10.

Using browse nodes

[amazon bestseller="BROWSE_NODE_ID" items="2"]
When using a browse node, Amazon's API returns a maximum amount of 10 products.
Main groups e.g. “Music” must be more specified, by using at least the first group child e.g. “Music – Pop”

The shortcodes above can be extended by adding further "attributes". We prepared an overview of all shortcodes and adjustments for the Amazon Affiliate WordPress plugin.
