Discussion

Yes, indeed they are Amazon products, like iTunes IDs are related to Apple products and Spotify too. I don't see any problem --★ → Airon 90 12:13, 19 June 2018 (UTC)
@Mahir256: If an ebook gets unpublished by Amazon it might still be useful to have information about the ASIN of the product. ChristianKl❫ 15:45, 30 June 2018 (UTC)

  •   Comment Why would Milk (Q201687) link to B001RU311W and not B001PSULSM? I actually like the idea of this property, but I assume that for something like Milk (Q201687) it would actually contain several values. I don't think that's inherently an issue, but perhaps if we added a qualifier constraint of distribution format (P437) (at least for media) that would be acceptable?

  •   Support Amazon's ASINs are also used for their App Store which has thousands of apps. That alone would make it a useful identifier, though some things are clearly not so suitable for use as an external ID on Wikidata. (i.e. dozens of third party listings for the same item).

  •   Support Ok, the arguments against this now don't seem super-strong; I've updated the label and marked this as ready. ArthurPSmith (talk) 17:51, 30 August 2018 (UTC)
