Getting started

Seller

1. Connect with the MWS Interface

If not already done so you need to connect your seller account to AMALYTIX so AMALYTIX has access to the MWS API on your behalf. Normally this is already included in the sign up process but if you need to do it again (e.g. if you are a Vendor and know you want to connect your new seller account) please follow the steps below. Otherwise you can skip this step and continue with selecting the alerts.

To connect AMALYTIX with the Amazon MWS API you will need your seller ID and the "Auth Token".

Click this link to create your token for the MWS authorization (You will need admin rights for Seller Central in order to execute this action).

Copy the following values into the form:

For Europe (Germany, the UK, France, Italy, Spain):

  • Name of the developer: AMALYTIX
  • Account number of the developer: 4969-2347-9708

For Northern America (USA, Canada, Mexico):

  • Name of the developer: AMALYTIX
  • Account number of the developer: 6633-2545-7819

Confirm the agreements and on the next page you will receive the values:

Once you have received your seller ID as well as your token for the MWS authorization, enter them into the registration form or enter them later under Settings / Amazon Account:

2. Store the Seller Central User

If you wish to collect Sessions and Conversion Data as well, it will be necessary to add a Seller Central User and you can learn how to do it here

Vendor

If you want to use the Vendor module you need to invite a special user to your Vendor Central account. Please contact our Support-Team for further instructions.

Alternatively you can use the Watchlist to monitor your products.

Select Alerts

Set global alerts and recipients

The next step will allow you under Settings / Alerts, which alerts you wish (do not wish) to receive. In addition, you may enter a separate e-mail address (or even several email addresses, separated by a comma), to which all alerts are sent once a day. Only those alerts are sent in this email that were ticked in the E-Mail column.

Furthermore, you may also be notified via Slack by entering the URL into your webhook. You can learn how to set up a webhook under: https://my.slack.com/services/new/incoming-webhook/
