An Amazon data field allows you to target individual product data to be displayed.
For example, if certain product information is required within a body text, a spreadsheet, or anywhere else, this can be displayed using data fields.
What is an Amazon data field?
An Amazon data field (simply known as a “field”) displays specific Amazon product data. For example, this could be the price, the product title, the star rating or the buy button. You can place this information anywhere in a post, on a page, or in a sidebar.
Data fields can also be used in a template or as part of a comparison table. In addition, an Amazon data field can generate buttons, such as the ‘buy’ or the ‘details’ buttons. You can add additional values using attributes.
You can find out more about the attributes and values to use for data fields in our documentation on Shortcodes and Extensions.
