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