If I remember correctly, Amazon has an API you can use to retrieve product information. Check their website.

See this cURL library.

A simple cURL implementation code

#include <stdio.h>
#include <curl/curl.h>

int main(void)
   CURL *curl;
   CURLcode res;

   curl = curl_easy_init();
     curl_easy_setopt(curl, CURLOPT_URL, "www.daniweb.com");
     res = curl_easy_perform(curl);

   return 0;

You will find this in their example codes.

Better try C# or java for web application purposes. but they also have their downside. See this.
