Amazon Advertising Connector

Version 2

 

Intro

Amazon Advertising connects your brand to Amazon customers wherever they share, read, listen, purchase, research and download online, across devices. Use Domo's Amazon Advertising connector to retrieve entities reports, performance reports, and portfolio listings. To learn more about the Amazon Advertising API, visit their page (https://advertising.amazon.com/about-api).

You connect to your Amazon Advertising account in the Data Center. This topic discusses the fields and menus that are specific to the Amazon Advertising connector user interface. General information for adding DataSets, setting update schedules, and editing DataSet information is discussed in Adding a DataSet Using a Data Connector.

You can find these credentials in your Amazon developer account.
