I understand that the scope of the business is geographically limited, but think of the tech it takes to achieve this ;)

I'm not from Pakistan, but I'm curious about the tech, specifically integration with Amazon site. Do you have a write up? Do you use Amazon Affiliate program? Any of their APIs. This looks really interesting.

I get this question a lot. The extent of Amazon API's is limited to package weights, which are sometimes not listen on the page.

I don't have a writeup at the moment..

Most of the app is a combination of reverse proxying with server side response editing and a lot of duct tape.

And then a neat Rails app to manage orders.
