      Description

      Rather then requiring people to type in the products model number and other specifications, what if when the user knew the asin of the product, when created a product, he could just type in the asin, and ofbiz would fetch the product name, model number, etc from a amazon lookup?

      It seems like this would save a ton of data entry, and help the end user significantly

       

      A possible issue I see is:

      Depending on how the person is going to use the information, I don't know the legal (copyright) status of going further and downloading pictures, the product description, etc.  If there are legal/copyright issues, then perhaps tag all downloaded information as having come from a amazon download.  This would allow certain content from being blocked from being redistributed on your own customer web site, but would still allow you to import the product info from the ASIN for products that you buy.
