Making a Request in Product Advertising API

A request is a way of asking Product Advertising API to do something for you. For example, you might ask Product Advertising API to return information about a product category or about a single item. You might request that Product Advertising API return images of items for sale, customer reviews, or price. Product Advertising API enables you to ask these questions by sending requests over the Internet using REST or SOAP. Product Advertising API answers your request by returning an XML document.

The following sections describe how to make a Product Advertising API request using multiple programming languages.
