Can I do scraping in my Android app to products and generate affiliate links without having the Amazon affiliate API key?

I'm working in an Android application and web app to offer products (no more info can i give you about my project because it is private). I have not the API key because i'm new in Amazon affiliates and i have to automate the process of getting the product name and an image (not the price) given (by the user) a Amazon product URL and then publish this product URL with my affiliate code. The problem is how can i start the app to sale if i need three sales to get the API key? Would you close my Amazon affiliate account doing this? Then, the other problem is if i could in a future extract the price every time the user enters the product URL? (Having always up to date the price)
