This is a reminder that you must complete the upgrade to Amazon’s Product Advertising API version 5.0 (PA API 5.0) by March 9, 2020. We have identified that in the past 30 days at least one of your applications was making calls to PA API 4.0.
PA API 5.0 is a more simple, granular, and consistent API that enables you to quickly and easily link your content to Amazon.
Key Features & Changes
Access information about the latest offers and products in the entire Amazon product database/catalog, such as Prime discounts, multi-currency formats, and shipping eligibility
Newer, improved ways to get the most relevant and up to date product information
Rapid integration and easier development with lower engineering cost through use of popular tools and languages
You may continue to use both PA API 4.0 and PA API 5.0 without disruption through March 9, 2020. After that date, we will shut down PA API 4.0, and any application calling it will no longer be able to retrieve Amazon product information.

1. Migrate your AWS account to a Product Advertising API account, if you have not done so already.
2. After completing step 1, upgrade each of your applications to PA API 5.0, as per the details here.
