Hi,

 

We have started to sell on Amazon US so therefore we had to create a new posting account. What I want to do is import new products in to my main account and can CA automatically show all of this inventory in my US posting account. Or do I need to upload seperatly in to each accounts for new products? We run over 10000 and I find that this gets messy with differnt accounts. Or can I use a business rule to export/import inventory in to each posting account?

 

Thanks.

 

Kamran.

RE: Sharing ALL inventory on different postings accounts

Kamran,

We don't have a central inventory that is completely shared across all posting accounts, but we do have a feature that will allow your accounts to keep quantity in sync.  If you go to Products/Settings/Shared Inventory and create a pool for both of your accounts, the quantity will be shared for any matching skus.  I suggest you search the SSC for pooled or shared inventory and see if this is an option for you.  If you are selling all the same items, another option might be to sell products to Amazon from the same posting account you were using before.

Hi Chris,

Thank you for your response first of all.

Chris I have the shared quantity in place already.

I wanted to share all of the other information like this aswell. But the only way to do this is by import/export feature. 

Can I have 2 amazon accounts from 1 posting account? This will be a better option for me. I can have Amazon Uk and Amazon USA from one posting account. Can I do this?

Thanks,

Kamran.

I spoke with one of the engineers on our Amazon platform.  We don't currently support having 2 amazon sites on the same posting account.

Hi Chris,

It looks like I need to export/import from each posting account. It would be cool if you dont need to do this or have multiple amazon accounts in one posting account. And same goes for ebay.

Thanks Chris for your help.

RE: Sharing ALL inventory on different postings accounts

I completely agree, this is a challenge in itself. I have over 24800 items and 1 single file is too big to upload as I have just found out. This is incredibly difficult for smaller businesses who are restricted with both time and staffing. There must be a solution to this problem? Is it something ChannelAdvisor will explore in the future to make this task a little easier for it's business accounts? I've went nearly 4 weeks with no Amazon Germany orders pulling in to my Germany account within CA. I just think its a little crazy it should be so difficult to get your accounts up and running so you can get your orders coming through from various different platforms like Amazon.

Why not setup a cron job to export / import automatially? It's pretty easy.
