Social login is usually used by customers due to a faster registration process (almost no additional information is needed), and you can save the time of remembering all your accounts. However, before creating a social login in Magento 2, you have to connect to the API of other social networks such as Google, Facebook, Yahoo, Instagram, Pinterest, etc. But do you know how to configure Amazon API in Magento 2?
When entering social networks, you need to create an external application to connect your website to their API. Then, application ID and secret (Client ID and secret or API ID and Secret) which are called application credentials are all that we need. With this external application, your website will be linked to API. And these credentials play an important role in making social networks’ users get access to your website. Depending on each kind of social network, these credentials may differ in name, content and format.
