Amazon Seller Central Integration

In this article, we’ll integrate an Amazon Seller Central data source with Y42.

The Amazon Selling Partner API provides metadata and insights for Amazon sellers. The Amazon Selling Partner API (SP-API) is the next generation suite for Amazon's Selling Partners and is an evolution of Amazon Marketplace Web Service (Amazon MWS) APIs, which have been offering sellers programmatic access to critical Amazon features.

Overview

Authentication: OAuth
Settings: Historical Date selection, Account selection
Schema type: Fixed
Update Type: Full import and incremental
 

Authentication

OAuth doesn’t share password data but instead uses authorization tokens to prove an identity between you and the service provider. OAuth is an authentication protocol that allows you to approve one application interacting with another on your behalf without giving away your password. For instance, when you tell Facebook that it’s OK for another application or website to access your profile. To sum up, you only need to have an existing account to authorize the access. Scroll down to the setup guide for a step by step guidance.

 

Import Settings

By default, the historical date will be set to one year ago. Refer to your own datasource to decide from which exact date you would want to retrieve data.
 

Account pre-requisites

You will need an active Amazon Seller Central account is required, along with the relevant credentials, with permission to access data from accounts and marketplaces you'd like to sync.
 

Schema

This integration returns fixed schemas from the API. See the SP-API Documentation to see a list of all  references, and for more information, such as use case guides.
 

Updating your data

You have the option of scheduling imports or Incremental Imports by the month, weeks, days, and even by the hour. With the incremental import, you will only add the new rows to that table, while a full import will actually re-import the entire table completely.

Incremental imports significantly increase the import speed, we import your table incrementally based on the last imported state e.g. id - If the table does not have a state, a full import will be triggered - This is done automatically.

We recommend therefore to schedule an incremental import regularly, but also schedule a full import with a certain frequency -- this is because only the full import will guarantee that old rows that have been updated on the data source will also get updated on your Y42 integration destination.
