    Ok.

    So the most common problem if your keys aren’t working is because you haven’t registered with the Amazon Advertising API..

    https://affiliate-program.amazon.com/gp/advertising/api/detail/main.html

    https://affiliate-program.amazon.co.uk/gp/advertising/api/detail/main.html

    etc

    Just click the button and register yourself.

    When I submit my keys and affiliate Ids and clicked on CHECK AWS KEYS, it shows me this Pop Up.
    I already register for Associates and the AWS with same ID. I’m entering right Keys also without spaces. But still not getting the Result.

    SOAP Fault: (faultcode: aws:Client.AWS.InvalidAccount, faultstring:
    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.

    Hi Alex,

    I am running into this problem as well. However, I am already registered for this (so it says). When I click signup, I get the welcome back screen and advice about creating security keys etc … .

    but I can’t understand why it is complaining. Is there some way to opt out of the API signup and then opt back in? Although signing up from scratch doesn’t seem to the the majority of people’s problems on this one.

    Thank you for any insight on this.

    I’m also having the same problem with the pop up message I’ve registered to everything has been suggested on here and it this pop up message appears .

    WooCommerce Amazon Affiliates was not able to connect to Amazon with
    the specified AWS key pair and Associate ID. Please triple-check your AWS
    Keys and Associate ID.
    Amazon Error. 1 – SOAP Fault: (faultcode:aws:ClientAWS.invalidAssociate
    faultstring: Your xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx Is not registered as an Amazon
    Associate. Please register as an associate at https://affiliate-program.amazon.com/gp/associates/join/landing/main.html)

    I have registered on the above address and i also get an email from Amazon saying my site had been approved.

    Is there anyone that could possibly help me and tell me where i am going wrong OR if it is a fault with them.

    Thank you in advance xx

    Hi WPEagle,

    I’ve set up a site before using your method and everything works fine.

    Now that I have tried doing it again it’s giving me an error about client.requestexpired. I already did a lot of things like the one you posted, registered for Product API and used their key pairs. Registered for new affiliate and used their new key pairs. Tried creating IAM account with key pairs. Also changed my timezone to Zulu/UTC to make the time the same as the Amazon servers so it is still within 15 minutes of request. But all are giving me the same story over and over. I tried looking for answers over the internet but nothing seems to work. Thank you in advance!

    Try re-generating you keys and try again.

    Make sure you haven’t copied and pasted an extra spaces or anything.

    Hi Alex, yes did that, even typed the keys manually. Made sure they are correct, re-generated a number of times. Created two new affiliate accounts and nothing worked, but still the same error.

    Hi Alex my man, gotta little question for ya,

    Is being registered to AWS “amazon webservices” free? I know that Amazon associates is free but what about AWS? Aws told me that they had some 12 month trial thing that I had to sign up for in order to complete the aws account, and I had to enter my credit card. Does this mean that if I have the access keys provided by AWS for more than one year, I will be charged of some fee? I’m quite confused

    Your boi

    I am registered with the Amazon API, but the secret codes they gave me wouldn’t work in WooCommerce at all. I tried several times, changed up things in the AWS site, etc, but NOTHING worked. I kept getting the same error messages that other people have posted on here. I finally went back to my Amazon Associates account and it let me pull up the codes there. I took the codes and entered them into my WooCommerce account, along with my tracking ID, and it took the codes then. I don’t know why it wouldn’t accept any codes I entered from the AWS/API site.
