NAME ^

Net::Amazon::Request - Baseclass for requests to Amazon's web service

SYNOPSIS ^

    my $req = Net::Amazon::Request::XXX->new(
                     [ type  => 'heavy', ]
                     [ page  => $start_page, ]
                     [ mode  => $mode, ]
                     [ offer => 'All', ]
                     [ sort => $sort_type, ]
    );

DESCRIPTION ^

Don't use this class directly, use derived classes (like Net::Amazon::Request::ASIN, Net::Amazon::Request::Wishlist etc.) instead to specify the type of request and its parameters.

However, there's a bunch of parameters to the constructor that all request types have in common, here they are:

type

Defaults to heavy, but can be set to lite if no reviews etc. on a product are wanted. Some fields (e.g. isbn) are not going to be available in lite mode, though.

mode

Defaults to books, but can be set to other catalog values.

page

Defaults to 1, but can be set to a different number to start with a different result page. Used in conjunction with the max_pages parameter of the Net::Amazon object. page is the offset, max_pages is the maximum number of pages pulled in starting at page.

sort

Defaults to +salesrank, but search results can be sorted in various ways, depending on the type of product returned by the search. Search results may be sorted by the following criteria:

  • Featured Items
  • Bestselling
  • Alphabetical (A-Z and Z-A)
  • Price (High to Low and Low to High)
  • Publication or Release Date
  • Manufacturer
  • Average Customer Review
  • Artist Name

Consult Net::Amazon::Request::Sort for details.

offer

To receive values for the fields CollectibleCount, NumberOfOfferings, UsedCount, specify offer => "All".
