No search results on amazon.de

Postby Pebowski » Tue Jun 11, 2019 12:13 pm

I have activated in Bookpedia under Help the Amazon Test - and this worked fine till now.
Today I wanted to enter the book 9783980504843, but it says: No search results. Also when I enter text, nothing is found.
Is the amazon interface broken again?

Regards,
Peter

I am not pushing enough referrals links for Amazon Germany, so the API is now not returning results. Hopefully I'll be able to get the API working again for Germany. But the real solution is less reliance on Amazon, so if you do know of other databases that would have info for a German IBAN do let me know.

Thank you Connor for the quick response.
Sorry, I don't know any other database - and of course it's the same for DVDPedia an CDPedia, so amazon was the easiest and most complete source.

Hi Conor!

I have some ideas for other databases for your tools:

Gamepedia: ogdb.eu
DVDPedia: ofdb.de
CDPedia: discogs.com

These are very good sources for informations about new and old releases. I hope, they can be added to the pedias as long as amazon is that unreliable to us pedia users.

Thank you so much for the info. Another user just pointed me out to ogdb.eu and I am checking that out for future inclusion. Thinking of making it the first Swift plugin to embrace the new future language of Apple.

Would it be possible to rely on https://www.buchhandel.de/ for German books?
