Amazon Marketplace Cmdlets

An easy-to-use set of PowerShell Cmdlets offering real-time access to Amazon Marketplace data. The Cmdlets allow users to access live Amazon Marketplace InventoryItems, Orders, Products, etc. - just like working with SQL server.

Use standard PowerShell cmdlets to access Amazon Marketplace tables.

The CData Cmdlets Module for Amazon Marketplace is a standard PowerShell module offering straightforward integration with Amazon Marketplace. Below, you will find examples of using our AmazonMarketplace Cmdlets with native PowerShell cmdlets.

Creating a Connection to Your Amazon Marketplace Data

To connect to the Amazon Marketplace Webservice (MWS), AWSAccessKeyId, MWSAuthToken, AWSSecretKey and SellerId are required. You can optionally set the Marketplace property. For more information on obtaining values for these properties, refer to the Help documentation.

$conn = Connect-AmazonMarketplace  -AWS Access Key Id "$AWS Access Key Id" -AWS Secret Key "$AWS Secret Key" -MWS Auth Token "$MWS Auth Token" -Seller Id "$Seller Id" -Marketplace "$Marketplace"

Selecting Data

Follow the steps below to retrieve data from the Orders table and pipe the result into to a CSV file:

Select-AmazonMarketplace -Connection $conn -Table Orders | Select -Property * -ExcludeProperty Connection,Table,Columns | Export-Csv -Path c:\myOrdersData.csv -NoTypeInformation

You will notice that we piped the results from Select-AmazonMarketplace into a Select-Object cmdlet and excluded some properties before piping them into an Export-Csv cmdlet. We do this because the CData Cmdlets append Connection, Table, and Columns information onto each "row" in the result set, and we do not necessarily want that information in our CSV file.

The Connection, Table, and Columns are appended to the results in order to facilitate piping results from one of the CData Cmdlets directly into another one.
