Wrong book added

Postby vjl » Wed Jun 12, 2019 11:32 am

Using beta 132, without Amazon Test [using my own creds]. I scan a book with this ISBN into the Multi ++ add box: 9780875847191

The result put into Bookpedia with Amazon US as the only source is:

https://www.amazon.com/Human-Resource-C ... nkCode=xm2

when it should be:

https://www.amazon.com/Human-Resource-C ... 875847196/

Thank you. I can repeat it.

Seems to be the API deciding to prefer the other edition. I will dig deeper and submit the bug into Amazon if necessary.

I'm still getting this error.

Scanning: 9781250069825

I get 'the river: a memoir' instead of Nine Perfect Strangers [hardcover]

Scanning: 9781501145032

I get 'Loom Saga: The Complete Series' instead of The Operator [hardcover]

This is using 'Amazon Test' and beta 148

I should note that the title is the only field filled in when scanning these items, except for the URL field, which is always the same: https://www.amazon.com/gp/slredirect/pi ... irect.html [and of course the Date Added field is populated].

Mostly all good here. Though this was using just the Add search function and not my iMac camera as a scanner.
macOS 10.14.6
Beta 148

Nine Perfect Strangers = 9781250069825 = https://www.amazon.com/Nine-Perfect-Str ... B07C75GRLY
Title, Athor, Genre, Release date, Language, Publisher, Format, Pages, Summary with ASIN = B07C75GRLY
(NOTE this search turned up as a Kindle eBook)

The Operator = 9781501145032 = https://www.amazon.com/Operator-Firing- ... B01N7YU0QW
Title, Author, Genre, Release date, Language, Publisher, Summary with ASIN = B01N7YU0QW

I don't have a camera as a scanner - I use a USB Metrologic barcode scanner and this is using the multi-add ++ feature.

I've noticed that depending if I use the Amazon Test vs my own Amazon Affiliate info, I get different results. My own Amazon affiliate creds will only allow certain kinds of media to be added to Bookpedia, vs Amazon Test [i use Bookpedia in a very unorthodox way, as I have for 11 years now - it is my inventory for my online bookstore that i run via Amazon FBA - it contains books as well as other media; 96% books though].

I typically add 100+ items a day, and some days every book has the issue I raised above; other times, all but 2-3 books have this issue. I have not found a pattern I can reproduce. :(
