It would be really, really nice if the Amazon capsule could display items that Amazon has available for pre-order instead of coming up with nothing.
I did some research and some pre-order items do show up in the Amazon product capsule.
Here is an example. B00CMQTVMI
I think it may be something other than if the item is available for pre-order.
What is the product code and/or URL for the specific item in the Amazon US store?
Once we have the specific product we can do further research to see what might be preventing that item from showing in the Amazon capsule.
Yes. I agree. We have some Amazon work we want to do. I'll look into what it takes to enable.
Being able to offer something ahead of its actual release is a huge component to supporting new and fresh content, especially for things like books and music.
I agree that being able to put pre-order products in our Amazon capsule, sometimes it is the best option for the content on your Hub
Here's what wasn't coming up for me the other day, 0755365895
Maybe there was an issue with the product listing when you tried it.
I just added that code to an Amazon capsule and the product is showing.
If you run into another product with the same issue, let me know and we can see if there is some common factor between the products we can establish.
You can see how it shows here too.

How am I supposed to be able to tell an item that is just having a temporary issue from one which isn't?
The API used by the Amazon capsule is only going to be able to show data returned to us by Amazon. There is no direct mechanism to go into the Amazon data and see the state.
It is not uncommon for there to be pricing issues and other problems for Amazon products that are later addressed by the individual merchant or manufacture.
It is even possible that there was some sort of temporary connectivity issue related to the API, so I'm not sure it is something that is coming from the product.
If there is another instance of a product, that is showing as available for pre-order on the site, but that is not showing pricing in the capsule, please let us know and we will research further to determine if there is an issue with the item product listing in Amazon's listing itself or something else.
