What are my options to download Amazon FBM orders without Developer Keys using alternative shopping carts?

On January 1st, 2021, Amazon released a new Selling Partner platform for sellers as a replacement for their MWS webservice.  As a result, Amazon will no longer be providing NEW developer keys for their MWS webservice.  All developer keys will need to be requested via the Selling Partner platform.  

The Amazon Selling Partner platform will only grant developer keys to sellers that use a certified App to connect to the Amazon Orders API.  Acctivate has not been certified at this time.

Alterity, Inc. has applied for the certification of Acctivate as a certified App on the Amazon Selling Partner Platform.  Unfortunately, we do not have a timeline for the certification of Acctivate or when developer credentials will be provided.  

In the meantime, companies using Acctivate that require the ability to download FBA and FBM orders from Amazon can utilize one of the following solutions:

  • RECOMMENDED:  Integrate with an intermediary shopping cart.  Using one of the following shopping carts, you can integrate and download Amazon orders.  Then, connect Acctivate to the intermediary to download these Amazon orders.
    • Shopify
    • BigCommerce
    • Channel Advisor
    • VoloCommerce
  • Export order information from Amazon via a CSV.  You can import in Amazon orders via a flat file using our Import Orders tool.

Inventory Availability will need to be exported from Acctivate routinely and imported into Amazon in order to update your items in Amazon.

All current and existing Acctivate customers already integrated with Amazon MWS should be able to continue downloading orders using the existing Amazon webstore template for the foreseeable future.
