Following article describes how to connect Unify Enterprise with Amazon EU.
Amazon requires you to register to use Amazon Marketplace Web Service (MWS) in order to configure this integration.
The below steps will help you to register for Amazon Marketplace Web Services and how to get required credentials to connect Unify with Amazon EU.
Step 1: Enter store Name, select Amazon from the drop-down menu, and click on Continue.
Step 2: You must register your Amazon Marketplace Web Service account so Unify Enterprise can connect to your Seller account to download inventory-related information. Below mentioned are the steps to register for Amazon Marketplace Web Service and to obtain Merchant ID, Access Key and Secret Key.
a) Go to Amazon UK MWS to link your seller account to Unify.
b) Select the option for "I want to access my own Amazon seller account with MWS" and click on Next
c) Accept the MWS Agreement and click on Next
d) You'll now see a Congratulations screen showing your MWS access information.
Step 3: Information you will need from the above:
- Seller ID
- Access Key
- Secret Key
Remember that if you use FBA (Fulfillment by Amazon), you must select the FBA check-box else you will not be able to process FBA orders and you will also not be able to set up those relevant expenses and fees.
Step 4: Please enter your store information.
Unique Nuances About the Amazon EU Integration:
- Customers must be created for each order. A static customer can not be used because of the different currencies (GBP and EUR) that come in on Amazon EU Orders
- Countries must be mapped to a specific currency for each country. This is done in the customer area of the configuration. (see screenshot below)
- QuickBooks will convert the amount collected on each order to USD. This may be slightly different than what is actually dispersed to you on your Amazon Settlement Report. For the most accurate recording, orders should not be posted until after the settlement report is received with the exchange rate Amazon used in the payment. Update your QuickBooks exchange rates to reflect this amount then post the orders to Quickbooks from Unify Enterprise.
