Manage prices

Import Amazon Prices to Magento

This formula will be applied in sync:

  • New Price = Converted Price + Converted Price * pA / 100 + pB.
  • Final Price = New Price + New Price * pC / 100.

Options may be set individually for every products. If you go to the section Amazon Import Products on the product page in the backend. There would be options:

  • Price Adjustment, pA (%)
  • Price Adjustment, pB
  • Price Adjustment, pC (%)

Magento Amazon extension - Set Price Adjustment

pA - is a percentage adjustment, for example, you have an Amazon price $100, you set pA field to 15, your final price would be $100 + 15% = $115

pB - is a fixed value adjustment. For example, you set pB to 25, The Amazon price is $125, the final price would be $125 + $25 = $150

pC - is also a percentage adjustment applied after pA and pB values changes the price.

You can make a bulk attributes change. Get to the product list, check all products, select action Update attributes and find proper attributes to change (for example Price Adjustment, pA (%). It will only change after the product is synchronized.

You can import products from Amazon and display prices in your locale currency. The currency conversion is based on a default Magento functionality. Rates are placed at System->Manage Currency->Rates section.

Get Lowest/Highest available price

WEAmazon-> Search & Import Products.

Take prices from Amazon directly

WEAmazon->Settings-> Html parsing features.

Get product page html from site

Why the extension not always gives expected Amazon product price

Magento extension displays the information provided by the Amazon API. There are two possible reasons to this behavior:

  • Amazon API caches data. And it takes time to refresh the cache. So, after some time the price might become as expected
  • For different regions (countries) different price is given

There are also Amazon Products API options which affect the price. For example "Default price ..."
Another option is "Default condition..."
You can try changing them and check if prices are changing.


Import reviews

Display Amazon reviews in the iFrame

WEAmazon->Settings-> Customer Reviews.

Magento Amazon extension - Display Amazon reviews in iFrame

Post Amazon reviews as Magento native reviews

Note. Reviews are not loaded instantly, since they are parsed from the site. Amazon might delay the answer or temporarily block parser. So we have set 5s wait timeout and 10s load timeout for review loading function. If reviews were not loaded with the product import, they would be loaded later during synchronization.

WEAmazon->Settings-> Customer Reviews.

There are two options "Load Amazon customer reviews as Magento reviews (not API) - Yes/No" and "Include customer reviews in a product description inside an iframe" - "Yes/No".

Magento Amazon extension - Post Amazon reviews as Magento native reviews

Also you will need associate the Amazon rating with the Magento rating.

Magento Amazon extension - Associate Amazon rating with Magento rating

Download reviews for the specific ASIN and associate them to the SKU in Magento

SKU may be any. After Amazon Products Manager is installed. You would be able to define ASINs for every product already placed in your Magento (Product Information-->Amazon Import Products-->Amazon Standard Item Number). After that reviews would be imported during synchronization.

You can import only Amazon reviews and nothing else


Images

Do not import main image to More Views section

Magento admin Panel-->WEAmazon->Settings-> General

Magento Amazon extension - Do not import main image to More Views section

Reverse images order

WE Amazon->Settings->Additional settings

Insert Amazon locales with reverse images order.

Magento Amazon extension - Locales with reverse images order

Load Hi-res images

Hi-res images are taken from the product pages on Amazon site. This is HTML-parsing feature.

WE Amazon->Settings->Html parsing features

  • Get product page html from Amazon site: Yes
  • Get Hi-Res images of a product from Amazon directly (not API): Yes

Amazon sometimes give captcha page instead of the actual page. So HTML parsing features are not 100% working, since Amazon might block http requests or put captcha pages.
You will need to add a captcha solver. There is a way to add captcha solver account in the extension settings.
