Do the Amazon web service APIs support barcode/UPC queries?


I skimmed through their documentation and found it a bit overwhelming at first. I know you can search for items by entering a UPC (the number below a 1D barcode), but I couldn’t find a word about it in the API.

What I want to do is perform a product lookup by doing a UPC search after scanning a barcode.


Here is a page from the which shows how you can use the ItemLookup method to find a specific product by UPC.

Note that default IdType for the ItemLookup is ASIN, but you can change it to something else like UPC if you need to
