This package is auto-updated.

Last update: 2024-03-29 02:58:20 UTC


This is an attempt to simplify access to the full range of MWS API calls from a single package.


Into a Symfony project

Add the reference into your composer.json :

"caponica/amazon-mws-complete": "dev-master"

Use in controller :

 $client = new \MwsProductClient(/* args */);

Accessing the API

You can access each API directly if you want to:

use CaponicaAmazonMwsComplete\AmazonClient\MwsProductClient;

$mwsProductClientUsa = new MwsProductClient(
    [ 'ServiceURL' => '' ]

$mwsResponse = $mwsProductClientUsa->getCompetitivePricingForASIN([
    'SellerId'          => 'YOUR_SELLER_ID',
    'MarketplaceId'     => 'MARKETPLACE_ID',
    'ASINList'          => array('ASIN' => 'YOUR_ASIN_SEARCH'),
// ... do something with the response ...

However, there is a better way! The MwsClientPool encapsulates all configuration shared between all different Amazon API services. So create that once (for each marketplace/seller combination you want to work with) and then retrieve 'ClientPacks' from the pool. A ClientPack includes configuration for a single Seller and Marketplace and these can be pre-filled into API calls by using the callXyz() methods (e.g. callGetCompetitivePricingForASIN() to call the API's getCompetitivePricingForASIN() method. This makes your API calls much cleaner:

use CaponicaAmazonMwsComplete\ClientPool\MwsClientPool;
use CaponicaAmazonMwsComplete\ClientPool\MwsClientPoolConfig;

$mwsClientPoolUsa = new MwsClientPool();
    'amazon_site'           => MwsClientPoolConfig::SITE_US
    'access_key'            => 'YOUR_ACCESS_KEY'
    'secret_key'            => 'YOUR_SECRET_KEY'
    'application_name'      => 'YOUR_APP_NAME'
    'application_version'   => 'YOUR_APP_VERSION'
    'seller_id'             => 'YOUR_SELLER_ID'

$productClientPackUsa = $mwsClientPoolUsa->getProductClientPack();
$mwsResponse = $productClientPackUsa->callGetCompetitivePricingForASIN('YOUR_ASIN_SEARCH');

There are also some helper methods that return objects (or arrays of objects) that are easier to work with than raw MWS responses:

/** @var MwsCompetitivePricing[] $compPricings */
$compPricings = $productClientPackUsa->retrieveCompetitivePricingForASIN('YOUR_ASIN_SEARCH');
foreach ($compPricings as $compPricing) {
    echo $compPricing->asin;


If you're using an MWSAuthToken then you can pass it in via the config:

    'auth_token'            => 'YOUR_MWS_AUTH_TOKEN',
    // ... other parameters ...

Once set on the ClientPool, the token should be passed through to each Client and used in every API request.

REQUEST: Please feed back via github if this is the best way to set and use the MWSAuthToken, and if it all works as expected. I don't used this functionality myself so cannot test it properly.


The scripts no longer echo messages. Instead they use a Logger which you can define when you instantiate the ClientPool.

See and for more details about setting up a Logger.

A basic Logger (which replicates the old echo behaviour), would look like this:

# EchoLogger.php

namespace Your\Path;

use Psr\Log\AbstractLogger;

class EchoLogger extends AbstractLogger
     * Logs with an arbitrary level.
     * @param mixed  $level
     * @param string $message
     * @param array  $context
     * @return void
    public function log($level, $message, array $context = array())
        echo "$message\n";

You then simply pass an EchoLogger instance into the MwsClientPool constructor:

use CaponicaAmazonMwsComplete\ClientPool\MwsClientPool;
use Your\Path\EchoLogger;

$echoLogger = new EchoLogger();
$mwsClientPoolUsa = new MwsClientPool($echoLogger);

Working with reports

There are domain objects to help with reading reports. Not all reports have been implemented (by a long way!) but feel free to implement any that you need to use and submit a PR. The basic structure is to have a ReportXyz class related to the overall report and a ReportXyzRecord class relating to each record (row) in the report.

The basic usage would then look something like:

$reportFilePath = '/path/to/file.txt';
$reportType = MwsFeedAndReportClientPack::REPORT_FBA_INVENTORY_AFN;
$fileHandle = @fopen($reportFilePath, 'r');
if (!$fileHandle) {
    return "Could not open $reportFilePath to read the report from";

try {
    while (($lineFromFile = fgets($fileHandle)) !== false) {
        if (!$checkedHeader) {
            BaseMwsReport::validateHeaderRowForReportType($lineFromFile, $reportType);
            $reportRecordClass = BaseMwsReport::convertReportTypeToReportRecordClass($reportType);
            $checkedHeader = true;

        $reportRecord = new $reportRecordClass($lineFromFile);
        // do something with the record 
        echo "The SellerSku field value is" . $reportRecord->getSellerSku();
} catch (InvalidReportHeaderException $e) {
    // Handle the exception, which is thrown if the header is not the expected format
} catch (InvalidReportRecordException $e) {
    // Handle the exception, which is thrown if the row is not the expected format

?? Amazon has deprecated these APIs, so they may be removed from this package in future.

*1 These libraries used to show later Library versions (dates) but this is what they say in the current Client.php files

The Off-Amazon Payments API is not currently included, since it is not directly linked to MWS activity. Off-Amazon Payments Technical Reference
