Amazon Merchant API

Amazon Marketplace Web Services

Amazon Marketplace Web Service (Amazon MWS) is an integrated Web service API that helps Amazon sellers to programmatically exchange data on listings, orders, payments, reports, and more. The Amazon MWS Fulfillment functionality extends the benefits of FBA by allowing sellers to integrate FBA capabilities directly into Magento store.

The Amazon Marketplace Web Service (Amazon MWS) Fulfillment API sections include operations that allow sellers to access Amazon's world-class Fulfillment capabilities through a simple Web services interface. Among other features, a seller can programmatically send order information to Amazon with instructions to fulfill customer orders on the seller's behalf.

When orders are placed on the Amazon site, or when a seller sends order information for orders placed through Magento store, Amazon will pick, pack, and ship the products to the seller's customers.

Sell your products from your Magento catalog on Amazon (export Magento products to Amazon)

Constructive critique from customers

A paid extension should not be supplied with so many bugs and configuration problems. After one month of use, I still have unresolved product synchronization problems .

(Magento Connect, November 2015)

The one I have experience with (and used to be free via partnership with eBay) is M2E Pro. The partnership with eBay has ended, and the module is technically free to install, but won't function without a valid subscription, which is rather expensive if you have any kind of volume with Amazon.

More

A business doing $60k/month of revenue should expect about $200/month for a subscription. It also appears from my testing back when the service was free that significant portions, if not all off the connections to Amazon, is routed through M2E's servers. Several times in the past few years we had multi-hour outages where the software simply wasn't syncing, and eventually M2E fessed up that it was something on their end. So M2E knows everything about your business, what you sell, your customer informative, etc...

You can also never uninstall the plugin, as it has so many deep hooks into Magento.

Conclusion

By using Amazon MWS, sellers can increase selling efficiency, reduce labor requirements, and improve response time to customers. Amazon MWS supports seller API functions

With Amazon MWS, Amazon listing, order, and payment data can be integrated into Magento workflows so that selling on Amazon fits seamlessly with sellers' Magento store.

There are no fees associated with Amazon MWS, but you need to have an Amazon seller account to use it.

All Amazon Services accounts, except for Individual-Selling on Amazon accounts, are eligible to use MWS. If you are an individual seller and would like to use MWS, you can become eligible to register for MWS by upgrading to a Professional seller account.
