Configure product SKUs

Stock Keeping Units (SKUs) are merchant-defined codes that uniquely identify products in a warehouse. It is critical that the SKUs defined in Amazon Marketplace are identical to the SKUs loaded into the warehouse management system.

Configure SKUs in Amazon Marketplace.

Gather shipping methods

As part of the third-party fulfillment setup, the shipping methods offered in the eCommerce system must be mapped to the corresponding shipping codes used by the fulfillment center.

Gather shipping methods from Amazon Marketplace.

Grant API User Admin Permissions

API access requires the credentials either of an existing user, or a dedicated API User (recommended). The user must be granted full Admin credentials to access the Amazon API.

Gather API credentials

Gather the required credentials, and verify the Amazon Marketplace of the connection.

Enable API access

The API (Application Programming Interface) allows for automated communication between connected systems. Before automated fulfillment can begin, API access must be enabled.

Enable API access in DropStream.

Review order status

DropStream will import orders that have the status Unshipped or Partially Shipped, and the Fulfillment Channel set to MFN.

Accepted Carrier Names for Shipment Confirmations

When a shipment confirmation is sent to Amazon, the Carrier Name must be one of the values listed. If necessary, the carrier name can be coerced to one of the accepted values using a shipment.notification rule created with the advanced rule editor.

Support for Seller Fulfilled Prime

DropStream supports Seller Fulfilled Prime (SFP). The integration accepts tags from Amazon that designate orders as SFP, and maps that field to your warehouse management system.

Inventory Tracking

Inventory tracking is enabled by default in your Amazon Marketplace integration. No additional steps are required to sync your inventory levels.
