Prerequisite: An FBA inbound shipment must be from a non-bin enabled warehouse in order to import it from Seller Central into Sellercloud.
Why create shipments in Seller Central? Typically, if a seller wants Amazon to prep an item. In this case, because there is no ‘API call’ for item preparation – only item prep guidance – the shipment must be created in Seller Central, with Amazon chosen for the item prep, and then imported into Sellercloud.
Note: When you created the shipment in Seller Central, if you already chose how to send the box content to Amazon (feed, 2D barcode labels, or none), this information will not import from Seller Central to Sellercloud.
To import the shipment:
- Create the FBA inbound shipment in Seller Central.
- Complete the shipping plan process and approve the shipment.
- In Sellercloud, search by “Import FBA inbound shipment” or click Inventory > FBA Inbound Shipments > Import FBA Inbound Shipment.
- Enter the Amazon Shipment ID > click the blue arrow to preview the shipment.
- The shipment preview appears. When ready, click the green icon to import the shipment.
The shipment will import with a Working status. You can also see the imported shipment on the Manage Shipments page.
If the shipment was already shipped from Seller Central, it will import with a Closed status, and inventory will be removed from the regular Ship From warehouse. A movement record will show in the Inventory Movement page.
