Problem Connecting your Shopify Store to Amazon using the App?
Have you encountered any problems with the process of establishing this connection? In that case, ensure you have followed the following few steps:
Do not use OTHER Amazon-Shopify Integrations in parallel with CedCommerce Amazon Channel.
In case you are using other Amazon-Shopify Integrations installed in your store, it is recommended that you disconnect them before proceeding with CedCommerce Amazon Channel. This is because using multiple apps to integrate Shopify Store with an Amazon Seller account can lead to Incorrect or Outdated Status updates for Products. This irregularity is a consequence of the different feed information against the same product available on multiple apps at once.
What to do if you have Products already Listed on Amazon?
In case you have products already listed on Amazon, you can choose which product data you wish to synchronize between the store and Amazon. Initially, the default sync setting is kept disabled to avoid any changes in the synchronization of the product details b/w your store and Amazon listings.
So before starting, enable synchronization by choosing specific information from the below list as per your need:
- Product Details
When Starting with a New Amazon Account
When starting with a new Amazon Account, ensure that the account is not under review by Amazon. Under such circumstances, an error will appear with the following message:
Bad Response! 401 Unauthorized: AccessDenied- Access Denied
Additionally, there is a possibility that you still do not have permission to upload products on Amazon at the moment.
If you cannot troubleshoot the issue, get in touch with team CedCommerce for guided resolution.
