Lets get the same information, but from the **german** Amazon

``` r
# Find the appropriate domain
Rmazon::domains$Germany
#> $url
#> [1] "https://www.amazon.de"
#> 
#> $domain
#> [1] "de"

# Then use domain to get german data
product_info_de <- Rmazon::get_product_info("1593273843", domain = "de")
```

### Example - product reviews

This is a basic example which shows you how to get reviews:

``` r
# Get reviews for 'The Art of R Programming: A Tour of Statistical Software Design'
reviews <- Rmazon::get_reviews("1593273843")
#> Fetching 122 reviews of 'The Art of R Programming: A Tour of Statistical Software Design'

# Have a look at the data
