[accordions id=’8647′]


This feature is only available to clients who are approved for the Amazon Associates Program.

If you ever have issues with your Amazon AWS credentials that cannot be quickly resolved, you can always get limited info from Amazon MWS (Marketplace Web Service). Here’s how this feature works.

Getting product information from Amazon

Product information can often be pulled from an existing Amazon listing – even if the listing is not yours, and even if you do not have an Amazon account, and can include:

Amazon Title Populates the Amazon Title field and can overwrite* the Product Name.
Description Comes in as Long Description.
Images Only the primary image on the Amazon listing will import by default. To import all listing images, select Enable download non-primary images from Amazon in Client Settings.
Bullet points Amazon listings can have up to 5 bullet points and are used to provide short information for the product’s features.
Manufacturer If Create Manufacturer when get info from Amazon or Create Product From Amazon is selected in Client Settings.
Shipping Weight and Dimensions By default, no weights and dimensions are pulled because weights and dimensions are often entered incorrectly (typically, higher) on Amazon. To get weights and dimensions, select Enable update weights and dimensions from Amazon in Client Settings.
Product Weight and Dimensions By default, no weights and dimensions are pulled because weights and dimensions are often entered incorrectly (typically higher) on Amazon. To get weights and dimensions, select Enable update weights and dimensions from Amazon in Client Settings.

*Overwriting Product Information from Amazon – By default, information that is already in SellerCloud is not overwritten when getting info from Amazon. To overwrite info, select Enable Override product info when getting info from Amazon in the Client Settings.
