Amazon Seller Central

Amazon Seller Central is the platform that independent merchants use to sell on Amazon.

Codat’s Core API supports Amazon Seller Central. Your linked customers can share their Amazon Seller Central data via Codat. You can then access this data in the same standardized format as Codat’s other commerce integrations.

Supported data types

The following table shows which data types are supported by the Amazon Seller Central integration.

More information about the supported data types:

  • Company info. Details of a linked company, such as their address, phone number, and company registration
  • Orders. Details of all orders received by a company, including payments, service charges, and refunds
  • Payments. Amounts reserved against the customer's funding source

Definitions

Amazon Seller Central is the platform that Amazon sellers use to run their Amazon business.

The Amazon Selling Partner API is the API on which Amazon Seller Central is built. This API is an upgrade to the legacy Amazon Marketplace Web Service (MWS) APIs, which are due to be deprecated at an unspecified date in the future.

Both in general and in these docs in particular, Codat refers to our Amazon integration as an integration with Amazon Seller Central. However it is important to note that the required developer registration with Amazon is for developer rights to the Amazon Selling Partner API.

For the sake of clarity when discussing developer registration in particular, this guide will use the exact name of the API.

🚧

Rate Limits and Sync Frequency

The Selling Partner API enforces rate limiting on incoming requests. Syncing commerce data at a high frequency – for example, once every 15 minutes – will likely exceed the rate limit and cause poor performance due to throttled requests. For optimal performance, we recommend setting the sync frequency of the Amazon Seller Central integration to a long interval, such as daily or weekly.

🚧

Multiple Marketplaces

Amazon Seller Central is a global platform with separate marketplaces in separate territories around the world. While merchants can sell in multiple marketplaces, each data connection is limited to a single marketplace being served by the Amazon merchant.

Your customers who sell in multiple territories can connect all their Amazon Seller Central marketplaces to Codat, but will need to go through the Link flow separately for each regional marketplace.
