ASIN numbers settings
Select whether you wish DataFeedWatch to download ASIN numbers. It is recommended to select this option if you already have products in Amazon Marketplace.
When selected, DataFeedWatch will download the ASIN numbers from your Amazon seller account and assign them to the products downloaded from your shop. Once in the system, you will be able to select ASIN as an input field. You can learn more about ASIN numbers in the ASIN-part of this Help-section.
Please also select a field that will be used as SKU in Amazon. This will be needed later on for auto-mapping and matching ASIN numbers to your products.
Processing report settings
By default, DataFeedWatch will send you a processing report every time there are errors in the feed you send to Amazon. You can disable this option or switch it to always which means DataFeedWatch will send the processing report even if there were no errors.
The processing report will be sent to the email address associated with DataFeedWatch account. It is possible to change the recipient email address in Amazon Marketplace settings.
Adding the Amazon Marketplace template
There are many different feed templates that you can use to upload your products to Amazon Marketplace. The choice depends on the category of products and the purpose of the upload.
If you are uploading your products for the first time you can use either a Listing Loader template or a category-specific template (different for each category).
Listing Loader is a special kind of template which can be uploaded only via a special Microsoft Excel spreadsheet (you can download it from Amazon). Based on the product id you provide, a built-in Excel Macro will attempt to match your product with products already existing in Amazon Marketplace.
Whenever there is a clear match, the product will be assigned with an ASIN number. For product with multiple matches a manual assignment is possible.
Products not matching any existing ASIN number will not be uploaded via this template. For these products a cagegory-specific template should be used instead.
Visit Amazon Help to learn more about using this template.
Catetegory-specific templates can be used when uploading products for which no ASIN number exists in Amazon Marketplace yet or whenever you wish to extend/update an existing product specification.
Category-specific templates are very extensive and include many category-specific fields. When selecting a category-specific template in DataFeedWatch you will have 2 additional options:
- Send the template to Amazon automatically – this option specifies if and when the template will be auto-uploaded to Amazon. By default the template will be auto-uploaded every time new products are downloaded from your shop.
- Purge current listing and replace it with the uploaded feed – this option will remove all your products from Amazon Marketplace prior to uploading new products. Usually it is not recommended to enable this option. It is set to never by default.
Inventory Loader can be used to update prices and stock status of the products already uploaded to Amazon Marketplace. If you wish to update any other fields for a product, use category-specific template.
The Inventory Loader also enables you to auto-upload products to Amazon or purge current listings (just like the category-specific above). In addition to that, it lets you automatically disable products in Amazon, that are no longer available in your store. (So that does not apply to FBA (Fulfillment By Amazon) products).
You can learn more about the different templates available in Amazon Marketplace and their usage by logging in to your Amazon Seller Central and following this link: https://sellercentral.amazon.com/gp/help/help-popup.html?ie=UTF8&itemID=1641
ASIN numbers in DataFeedWatch
ASIN numbers play a vital role in managing Amazon Marketplace via DataFeedWatch. After uploading products to Amazon Marketplace it is highly recommended to use ASIN numbers as product identifiers whenever you wish to update your products.
Whenever auto-mapping is available, DataFeedWatch will map the product id from ASIN if it exists.
ASIN numbers are downloaded to our system after each successful upload. You can also trigger downloading ASIN numbers manually from Amazon Marketplace options. Please do so every time you upload products using Listing Loader template.
We added additional filters to let you easily see for which products ASINs:
Amazon Order Management
Order Management is a tool that enables Magento and Shopify merchants to sync their Amazon orders with their stores. All products sold on Amazon are updated in the store automatically, so that the number of available items is up-to-date. This ensures that merchants do not advertise out of stock products and waste money on clicks that will not convert.
Installing Amazon Order Management
The installation process may vary depending on your Shopping Cart. Please check help article dedicated to your shop:
