Getting Started
In this section, you will learn to use the API to search for items on Amazon using our Javascript client. We will do that by creating a sample page to display the search results for "Headphones".

Step 1
Create a blank HTML file. Then add jQuery and CommerceDNA scripts to your HTML file:
<script src=""></script>
<script src="****&&awsSecret=****&redirect=/search/js/client.js"></script>

Fork this code »
Replace awsId and awsSecret in the CommerceDNA script with your Amazon associate credentials.

Step 2
Lets initialize CommerceDNA to search for "headphones":
<script type="text/javascript">
searchAPI = CommerceDNA.itemSearch({keywords:'headphones'});

Fork this code »
If you are able to see the "search filters" on the webpage, your credentails are correct and working fine with the script.

Step 3
Now, you can fetch the results for "headphones:"
jQuery('body').append('<pre>'+JSON.stringify(rslt, null, 2)+'</pre>');

Fork this code »
You should be able to see the results as JSON on your webpage.
