This Amazon Connector connects the Seller Central, through the new implementation of Amazon SP API (Amazon SP API) to a DCL account to assist in order fulfillment and inventory update functions for the Amazon store. The Selling Partner API (SP-API) is an updated suite of REST APIs utilizing standards being currently used in the industry.
To interface your Amazon Seller store to your DCL account, press the button Setup your store on the upper right hand corner and follow the instructions.
IMPORTANT: Amazon requires DCL to remove any PII (Personally Identifiable Information) within 30 days after order shipment. In order for us to comply with Amazon requirements, we will remove customer name, 'address 1', and email from storage after 3 weeks of order shipment (phone number is never collected). In eFactory, we will show this information with a list of asterisks (*). Should you need to access the customer data after 3 weeks of order shipment, you will have to log in to your Amazon Seller Central account.
