Amazon has grown into the largest on-line retailer in the world. In addition to selling on-line, it provides merchants with the platform to sell their products through Amazon’s e-commerce web site by offering sellers a portal called ‘Seller Central’. Amazon.com's ‘Seller Central’ allows sellers to offer their products in a high traffic online marketplace. With this service, vendors don’t have to worry about creating their own e-commerce platform with an online shopping cart or payment processing. Instead they can utilize Amazon’s robust platform and instantly increase sales.
Aria now has an integration solution that allows suppliers to receive orders from Amazon.com electronically into Aria. With this integration, suppliers can focus on efficiently managing the resulting orders. And because Amazon sellers are shipping to end consumers and not retailers, the amount of orders can reach staggering numbers, Aria’s Carrier (UPS, Fedex, USPS) web service integration makes managing orders and shipments a much faster process by automatically communicating with the carrier through web services.
Here are some of the main features of the Amazon Seller web services integration:
- All the pending orders are downloaded in a batch and translated by the Aria EDI engine. It’s up to you how frequently you download your orders.
- All the downloaded order files are then available in your Aria ERP.
- Aria can automatically communicate with the carrier to fetch the shipment tracking number and shipping labels and print packing lists with integrated shipping labels.
- Product availability and shipment confirmation are automatically sent to Amazon.com
