GetLowestOfferListingsForASIN

Returns pricing information for the lowest-price active offer listings for up to 20 products, based on ASIN.

Description

The GetLowestOfferListingsForASIN operation is the same as the GetLowestOfferListingsForSKU operation except that it uses a MarketplaceId and an ASIN to uniquely identify a product, and it does not return the SKUIdentifier element.

Note:

Instead of calling the GetLowestOfferListingsForASIN operation to obtain the lowest price offer listings for a specific product by item condition, consider calling the GetLowestPricedOffersForASIN operation.

You can also subscribe to the AnyOfferChanged notification by using the Subscriptions API service. When you subscribe to this notification, you will be notified whenever there is a price change or offer listing change for any of the top 20 offers, by condition (new or used), for an item that you sell.

Availability

This operation is available in all marketplaces.

Throttling

Maximum request quota Restore rate Hourly request quota
20 requests 10 items every second 36000 requests per hour
This quota and restore rate is shared with GetLowestOfferListingsForSKU. Operations in the Products API section that send lists of items as input parameters have restore rates that are measured by item. For information on per-item throttling, see Throttling in the Products API. For definitions of throttling terminology and for a complete explanation of throttling, see Throttling: Limits to how often you can submit requests in the Amazon MWS Developer Guide.

Response elements

The GetLowestOfferListingsForASIN operation returns the Product response element that is described by the following publically available XSDs: ProductsAPI_Response.xsd and default.xsd. The GetLowestOfferListingsForASIN operation returns the following two sub-elements of the Products response element: Identifiers and LowestOfferListings.

Name Description
AllOfferListingsConsidered Indicates whether or not all of the active offer listings for the specified product and ItemCondition were considered when the listings were placed into their corresponding offer listing groups. When there are a large number of active offer listings for the specified product and ItemCondition, only a certain number of offer listings are considered. The listings that are considered always have lower landed prices than the landed prices of listings that are not considered.
Product Contains two of the sub-elements of the Product element from ProductsAPI_Response.xsd. These sub-elements are: Identifiers and LowestOfferListings.
Identifiers Contains the following identifiers that uniquely identify a product:
  • MarketplaceASINMarketplaceId and ASIN combination.
  • SKUIdentifierMarketplaceId, SellerSKU, and SellerId combination. Only returned if SellerSKU was specified in the request.
LowestOfferListings Contains pricing information for the lowest offer listing for each offer listing group.

Some key sub-elements are:

  • Qualifiers. Contains the following six qualifiers: ItemCondition, ItemSubcondition, FulfillmentChannel, ShipsDomestically, ShippingTime, and SellerPositiveFeedbackRating. These qualifiers identify the offer listing group from which the lowest offer listing was taken.
  • NumberOfOfferListingsConsidered. Of the offer listings considered, this number indicates how many belonged to this offer listing group. Note that if AllOfferListingsConsidered is returned with a value of True, then the value of NumberOfOfferListingsConsidered is the actual number of active offer listings that met the six qualifying criteria of the offer listing group. However if AllOfferListingsConsidered is returned with a value of False, then the actual number might be higher.
  • SellerFeedbackCount. The number of seller feedback ratings that have been submitted for the seller with the lowest-priced offer listing in the group.
  • Price. Pricing information for the lowest offer listing in the group. Contains the following elements:
    • ListingPrice. The listing price of the item.
    • Shipping. The shipping cost of the product. Note that the shipping cost is not always available.
    • LandedPrice. ListingPrice + Shipping - Points. Note that if the landed price is not returned, the listing price represents the product with the lowest landed price.
    • Points - The number of Amazon Points offered with the purchase of an item, and their monetary value. Note that the Points element is only returned in Japan (JP).
  • MultipleOfferListingsAtLowestPrice. Indicates if there is more than one listing with the lowest landed price in the group.

    Valid values:

    • True – There is more than one listing with the lowest listing price in the group.
    • False – There is only one listing with the lowest listing price in the group.
    • Unknown – The service cannot determine if there is more than one listing with the lowest listing price in the group. This can happen in certain cases when not all active offer listings were considered when the offer listings were sorted into groups (when AllOfferListingsConsidered = False).
