Amazon WebServices & EditorialReviews
Product description is missing

I am trying to integrate product descriptions from Amazon with my website, and it seems like AWS do not provide descriptions for some of the latest products. When I call EditorialReviews, in some cases I get nothing in return. Every product, however, has an editorial description.

Does anyone else experience the same? I searched Amazon message board but could not find anything that would imply that information on some products is blocked.

Thank you in advance.

i was messing with aws a while back and had the same problem. i think i discovered that they don't always send that in the datafeed. Can't remember exactly why, copyright maybe.

Thanks, jmp

I know that a while back they did not allow customer reviews to be displayed on the affiliate websites. Now, it is allowed if the site does not hold this information in cache for longer than 24 hours. This is the only restriction I know of. It is very weird that the general product descriptions are not available for some items....
