Amazon Product API Alternative ?
Since Amazon instituted their new throttling system about 9 months ago for their API that limits calls to 2000 an hour + 500/ $1 sold - Capped at 25,000 calls per hour. What are the available alternatives? I noticed that you can request a daily data feed to be downloaded but that could require substantial daily processing. Is there any other way to go about accessing information for a price comparison feature outside of scraping, which doesn't make sense in itself?
My concern is I utilize Amazon's API and I actually have success and now I have an issue maxing out my allotted hourly calls. I have read several instances where people have access to the content for the first 15min of every hour before their traffic maxes out their calls.
Thanks in advance
