How do I create a Carousel widget containing bestselling products from an Amazon.co.uk category?

To create a Carousel widget containing bestsellers from a specific Amazon category, add the following key-value pairs to the widget template:


1. widgetType='Bestsellers'
2. searchIndex='INDEX_VALUE'
Replace INDEX_VALUE with a specific Amazon category. To learn more about Search Index and get the complete list of available Search Index values, click here .
Example: searchIndex=’Apparel’ returns bestsellers from the Apparel category

3. [Optional] browseNode='NODE1, NODE2 etc.'
Replace NODE1,NODE2 etc. with a list of Browse Node values. The Carousel widget will be populated with Bestsellers from NODE1. If it does not find a minimum of 6 bestselling products from NODE1, then it will get more bestsellers from NODE2 and so on.

Use the browseNode parameter to drill-down into a specific Amazon category. For example, if you specify browseNode='1045066,1045024,1040660', the Carousel will be populated with Bestsellers from the category Professional<Dresses<Women<Apparel

For example, the Widget Source code below creates a Carousel containing new products from the Video Games browse node (51550011):


<script>
var amzn_wdgt={widget:'Carousel'};
amzn_wdgt.tag='widgetsamazon-20';
amzn_wdgt.widgetType='NewReleases';
amzn_wdgt.searchIndex='VideoGames';
amzn_wdgt.browseNode='51550011';
amzn_wdgt.title='New Video Game titles from Amazon';
amzn_wdgt.width='600';
amzn_wdgt.height='200';
</script>
