Amazon FPS has five parts, each providing a different slice of Amazon FPS functionality:
Amazon FPS Basic Quick Start. Facilitates a one-time payment between a buyer and a developer (you) who is also the merchant for e-commerce, digital content, donations, or services.
Amazon FPS Marketplace Quick Start. Facilitates a one-time payment between a buyer and a merchant, where you are a third-party developer (also known as a caller) who hosts the merchant's product pages and order pipeline. With this unique three-party transaction model, you can charge a fee to process transactions in which you are neither the buyer nor the merchant.
Amazon FPS Advanced Quick Start. Facilitates multiple or recurring payments between a buyer and a seller for e-commerce, digital content, donations, or services.
Amazon FPS Aggregated Payments Quick Start. Facilitates aggregated micro-transactions into a single, larger transaction using prepaid and postpaid capabilities.
Amazon FPS Account Management Quick Start. Access buyer and developer account activity programmatically. Alternatively, you can view account activity and balances on the Amazon Payments web site.
This reference provides one comprehensive alphabetical listing, and five quick start listings. DataTypes, IPN values, and example email messages are provided in a comprehesive fashion only, without division by quick start.
You can use these parts separately or in combination, as they share a common WSDL and schema. This guide, the API Reference, contains reference information from each of the quick starts, as well an information common to them all, including
API reference pages, containing parameter definitions, error codes specific to the api, example requests, example responses, and example IPN responses.
