1. What versions of WordPress does the plugin work with?
The plugin is compatible with v3.0.1 up to v4.9.

and the API requires access credentials, aka keys, specific to your Amazon account in order to function. Visit it to sign up for API access or to get your keys. A detailed description of the Product Advertising API is available here
