Stegalex has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:
I am considering building a site based on Amazon Web Services whereby you can use either xml over http, SOAP, or xsl to access Amazon's product catalog and earn commissions on sales you generate. How well does it work?
Should I go xml over http, soap, or xsl?
What Perl modules should I use?
How much affiliate revenue has it produced for you?
Anything else that I should know.
Before I dive headfirst into this effort, I would like to hear from my fellow monks about their war stories about how well it has worked for them. Specifically:
There are no Perl samples with the Amazon sample kit so I am guessing that I am on my own to figure this whole thing out (which I don't mind because I know I can always count on you to provide lots of helpful advice).
Thanks in advance for your help.
