Amazon List

An Amazon List is an object that displays a list of one or more Amazon products. There are a wide range of layout options available. Visitors can click on a product to view, and then purchase it.

A simple Amazon List.

Some ideas for how you could use an Amazon List:

Setting Up an Amazon List

To get started with an Amazon List:

  1. Click the "Objects" item in the toolbar and select "Amazon List."
  2. Open the Object Inspector.
  3. Click the flag icon to select the store most appropriate for your site.

Now you need to add some Amazon products to the list.

  1. To add a product to the list. Click the "plus" button below the table and in the "Product" field enter one of these:

    • URL - use your web browser to view a product on Amazon's website and then copy its address.
    • ASIN - every product in Amazon's catalog has an ASIN code which uniquely identifies it. This is listed among the product's details on Amazon's website.
    • ISBN - all books have an ISBN code on their reverse.

    Alternatively, you can drag the URL of (or a link to) an Amazon product into the table from your web browser.

  2. Repeat step 2 for each product.
  3. If you wish, enter a comment about the product in the "Comment" field under the table.

Congratulations! You should now have an Amazon List object set up with one or more products.

Associates Program

If you are a member of Amazon Associates you can specify your associates ID in the inspector, at the bottom of the list products.

Appearance Settings

You can customize how the list appears.

To change an Amazon List's appearance:

  1. Click the object to select it.
  2. Open the Object Inspector.
  3. Click the "Appearance" tab in the Inspector.


There are eight different layouts available:

Note that some options may be disabled depending on how you have set the rest of the object setup. In particular, are using any of first six layout styles.

Open links in new window

Links are opened in a separate browser window.

Product Preview Popups

Check the box and when visitors hover over an item in the list for a moment, the full product details will "pop up" over the page. This option is only available for the US store and will only appear on the published site; not within Sandvox itself. Also, if you have more than one Amazon List in your site and check the box for one, it may effectively enable it for the other object.
