Why Can't I Add Amazon Products to My Store?

When you can't add any products to your store usually means there is an issue with your amazon key, secret key or tracking id. Here is a good way to check your keys.
Step 1. Login to your FreshAdmin Control Panel, click on Tools.
Step 2. From the Tools tab select "Product Full XML".
Step 3. Then you will need to enter a valid ASIN number for your locale. You can get ASIN from any product page from amazon.
Step 4. Once you click on the "Create XML Link", you will see a new link appear to view the report.
If your keys are good then you will see all the information on that product. If there is an issue with one of your keys then you might see messages like this,
<Error><Code>AWS.InvalidAccount</Code><Message>Your AccessKey Id is not registered for Product Advertising API. Please use the AccessKey Id obtained after registering at https://affiliate-program.amazon.com/gp/flex/advertising/api/sign-in.html.</Message></Error></Errors>
You might also see "Amazon API Request Limit", this means you hit the limit amazon allows your account per hour to call the api. It resets every hour but if it keeps happening then you need delete some products from your store. Amazon will increase your limit once you start making sales.
The FIX for "Your AccessKey Id is not registered for Product Advertising API."
After working with some members to track down the issue with the above error we found that the amazon keys don't come set with the "Product Advertising API", the keys will say Active but they are not active with the correct API. It takes 3 minutes to activate the keys.
Step 2- On the next page click the Sign Up image on the right side, it will ask you to join but click to login with your amazon account.
Step 3- Follow the steps and confirm the account.
Step 4- Go to your store and now you will be able to add products =)
