Initial impression and click data is available using the API within 12 hours. Note that small changes to impression and click data may happen up to three days after the initial click date due to the traffic validation process. We recommend retrieving click and impression data again after three days to ensure you have the latest data.
Initial conversion data is available within 24 hours, but may change as part of the restatement process. Restatements of conversion data occur 1, 7, and 28 days after the conversion event. Because conversions are reported on the date of the ad interaction, restatement includes all dates in your attribution window. For example, if your attribution window is 14 days, restatement can update attribution up to 42 days (14 plus 28) after the report date.

API Data vs. Advertising Console Data
Small data discrepancies between advertising console and API reports may occur and are expected due to differences in the traffic validation and data refresh processes. If you experience a data discrepancy of greater than 5% escalate to a support team member.

No quotas explicitly stated, however, the API will return a
429 error code when rate limits are hit. As suggested in the documentation, we have implemented retry logic with exponential back-off to avoid this rate limiting, but it is not completely avoidable as it is based on Amazon’s current system load.

Amazon provides an FAQ section for common errors when using their API for reporting. You can find these common issues here.
