It's based on a initiative called Schema.org. Google announced this feature for Gmail in May 2013: http://gmailblog.blogspot.dk/2013/05/take-action-right-from-inbox.html Quotes from the post (emphasis and linkifying mine): Email is an important part of how we get things done -- from planning an event with friends to organizing that family vacation to ...

Just append to the link https://www.amazon.com/gp/feature.html/?ie=UTF8&docId=1000296831 &gcIsProcess=0 This will cause the Credit Balances to instantiate without any clicking. Additionally, to automatically ...

Append the following to the end of the URL in order to have the items with the most reviews at the top: &sort=review-count-rank It doesn't give exactly the behavior you are requesting, but it should make it easier to find products with a substantial number of reviews.

Using special characters is a method to tell the browser to use UTF8 encoding, and this probably is Amazon engineers putting in a bit of an easteregg instead of a dull utf8=✓ thing. For the record, all non-English versions have an __mk_{languagecode}_{countrycode} as URL parameter, the only one I found to differ from the ÅMÅŽÕÑ thing is the Japanese version,...

If you're looking for a more stable link, I recommend you use: http://www.amazon.com/mp3redeem Amazon publicizes this URL in emails as follows: For redemption instructions and additional information, click here http://www.amazon.com/mp3redeem. Since its publicized, and it looks like a marketing URL, I'm guessing Amazon will ensure this link always ...

Thanks to this answer, I've discovered that amazon respects + before a keyword too! For example: Radeon +7990 will give you exactly 7990's results and not variations on models like 6990 or 7970 like it normally does.

As of July 2015, at least there is no reliable way to use a NOT operator. At least on Amazon.de searching for hard drive -usb will reduce the number of USB drives, but already the last result on the first page contained "USB" in the title. Searching for tischventilator -usb (German for table fan) on the other hand pushes usb devices even more to the top ...

Yes, if you have a debit or credit card through Amazon.com, or another form of payment where they are handling the account, that's where the bill or notice would go if you are late on payments. That address can also be used to verify that the owner of the card is the real owner of the card when they check with the bank or card issuer and compare against the ...

I finally found a good solution today: Put the product on your wishlist, then go to the wishlist page and delete it, it will basically ask you why you deleted it, and you can can basically say, "because I own it"

You get a year of running the equivalent of 1 micro instance for 1 years with moderate bandwidth. It used to be pretty easy to breach the limits on the EBS, but they seem to have raised that now. After 12 months you have to pay for what you are using, but remember there's more than just turning off any instances, you have to remember to delete everything in ...

You can't directly email the seller because Amazon wants messages stored on their system for arbitration or dispute resolution. So, you have to contact your seller through Amazon. Go to "your account" > "your orders". There should be a button that says "Contact Seller". Another way is to click on the "order details" or order number. Then find and click ...

Kindle is the brand name of a range of e-readers and tablets (called Kindle Fire) produced by Amazon.

In case anyone is still looking for a solution to this problem, I created a browser extension called "All Prices" that lets you easily see all the price options for each color, style, etc. of an item. You can find it on the Chrome Store or as Firefox Extension!

You can't directly share your shopping cart directly, I mean you can't share links of your cart by anyway because of security. So most usual and used way to do that is by sharing your 'wish list' or you can use an extension like Shopping Cart Share For Amazon

Had the same issue recently and didn't find a solution. So, I made a cart sharing extension for Chrome browser. Here you go: https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/amazon-share-a-cart/peiobddfomnijgoblelfdmjblplojcoe

According to a post in a Amazon support forum, Amazon customer support mentioned that this feature was removed: Unfortunately, the option "I own it" checkbox on the product pages is no longer available on our website. Another poster mentioned that it is possible to search for items and mark them as owned with this link: http://www.amazon.com/gp/rate-it ...

To answer my own question: No, it will not interrupt you. Even if you go over the time limit, you can watch the entire movie as long as you start before the 24 hour mark. Apparently this is no longer true, and the movie will stop playing as soon as it expires.

Try including -metatex in your search terms.

I found the button class for the 'Want to Read' button and looped through and clicked them all by running this Javascript in the console. var buttonArray = document.getElementsByClassName('w-button-common w-button-unfollow'); for(var a=0;a<buttonArray.length;a++){ buttonArray[a].click(); }

This information is a little buried on the Amazon website, but does come up on the Pricing tab on the Sell on Amazon page. Near the end of the checklists you'll find the following: So with the free account you can only sell products already listed on Amazon, to list something new you'll need a £25 a month Pro account.

The problem was that my account has been frozen (even tough on login, the message is "incorrect email or password"). Amazon wanted me to send them a document by fax to prove my identity. I have no fax. I ended up creating another account.

This is not possible. You can only view reviews all of the same rating or all of them together. You can't have it group reviews with four stars (★★★★☆) and five stars (★★★★★) together. On top of this, Amazon only allows you to rate based on whole stars. Therefore you cannot filter by half stars, like 3.5 (★★★♦☆), which are non-existent as an option when ...

Well, turns out it can be done very easily at http://www.shelfari.com/addbooks where there's an option Import Your LinkedIn Reading List. Clicking "Import" will bring you to an import view like this: There's a FAQ item about this too: Reading List (LinkedIn) Import. I just tried it and my books and reviews got imported just fine.

The credit card company knows your billing address, and it is used for verification. For that credit card there is a direct relationship to the billing address. For some transactions the credit card is not charged until the product is shipped. They will not charge you for the item until a back ordered item is available. You can also pre-order books, movies,...
