Connecting Amazon to inFlow Cloud

Do you sell your products on Amazon? With our updated Amazon integration, you can now push inventory levels and pull new sales orders from Amazon!

Setup

Connecting your Amazon Store

  1. Log in as an inFlow administrator here: https://app.inflowinventory.com/options/integrations.
  2. Click Set up on the Amazon tile.
  3. Click on Add an Amazon connection, select the country in which your Amazon store is and click Connect.
  1. You’ll be redirected to a new window to log into your Amazon Seller Central account. After logging in, please read through the necessary authorizations and check the box on the bottom that allows the integration. Click Confirm.
  2. You’ll now see your country’s store at the top. You can edit your Amazon Store name (this is pretty useful when you have to manage several stores from the same country – please make sure you give them different names!). You’ll find your Amazon Seller ID right below.

FBA Settings

If you’re using Fulfillment by Amazon (FBA), you can pull your inventory levels to inFlow so you can keep track of your stock. This means that when there’s an update in your items’ Quantity Available in Amazon, you’ll see an update in Quantity Available in inFlow.

If you don’t use FBA, please toggle Pull inventory levels from Amazon as this is on by default.

FBA Settings

Taking stock from

Here you’ll need to choose the location in inFlow that matches the location where you keep your FBA stock. Since your FBA stock is stored with Amazon, we recommend creating a special location for it and selecting it on this screen. FBA stock levels won’t interfere with FBM stock levels since the items’ SKUs are completely different.

Order fulfillment status

OptionWhat happens in inFlow
Open – Orders should be manually processed laterSales orders will be marked as Unfulfilled in inFlow, even if the orders are marked as fulfilled from FBA.

FBM Settings

If you stock and ship your Amazon products, you’re using Fulfillment by Merchant (FBM). inFlow pushes inventory quantity to keep your Amazon Store up to date.

If you don’t use FBM, please toggle Push inventory levels to Amazon as this is on by default.

Customize how Amazon conflicts are resolved

This area allows you to customize how you’d like inFlow to resolve conflicts with inFlow, from how to deal with taxes to creating products/customers that aren’t set in inFlow.

Note: When creating a product in inFlow from an Amazon order, Amazon’s Product title will become inFlow’s Product name, and the SKU field will be the same on both platforms.

FAQ

Frequently Asked Questions

How are products matched?

Just like all our integrations, products in Amazon are matched to inFlow by SKU first. If a product in inFlow doesn’t have an SKU, the connection will be made from the product name in inFlow to the Amazon title.

Can I add multiple Amazon Stores?

Yes – you’ll just need to click on Add an Amazon connection and set up your store. You can add multiple stores from the same country, too – just make sure you give them different names!

Please be aware that each country marketplace counts as 1 integration.

Why do my Amazon orders come without a Customer name/email/address?

Unfortunately, Amazon’s new API no longer provides this information. Alternatively, inFlow creates a single customer for the marketplace the orders are coming from. For example, if you have set up a US Amazon store, all orders from there will come into inFlow under that same Customer. You’ll have to access Amazon to see the specific customer’s details.

If I have a product being sold in both FBA and FBM, can I use the same product in inFlow?

No. FBA and FBM items have a unique SKU, meaning that you actually have two of the same product in your Amazon Store, each with a different SKU. For the integration to work flawlessly, you’ll need two different products in inFlow.

How often is FBM pushed?

If there has been changes, FBM is pushed every 5 minutes (or every 24 hours at the very least).

How often is FBA pulled?

FBA inventory is pulled when FBM is pushed, as long as it’s been an hour since the last FBA pull. If there haven’t been any changes, every 6 hours at the very least.
