Nexternal is going to the Amazon. And no, we’re not relocating to Brazil. I’m talking about our new Amazon Marketplace Integration, which Nexternal merchants can use to automatically synchronize their product database with the world’s largest online retailer. It gets even better. Not only will your product info be automatically sent to the eCommerce behemoth, but order data containing those products will flow seamlessly back into your Nexternal Order Management System for fulfillment and inventory tracking.

Configuring this feed is done in just a few easy steps. Once you’re set up as an Amazon Seller Professional, Developer Access is given to Nexternal, you decide if you’d like your product prices, inventory or both to be sent over and the automatic feed is ready. Next, you’ll determine which of your Nexternal products you’d like to be sent to Amazon, validate them with the item’s Amazon ASIN and if appropriate you can enter an alternate price specifically for Amazon, and include in the feed. The last order of business is to configure your shipping methods as they pertain to Amazon’s four type of delivery options: Standard, Expedited, Second Day, and Next Day.chris2

In the amount of time it took to read this article, you could have already set up an automated product feed to the largest eCommerce marketplace in the world and had those orders flow into the same back-end system that powers your business’ online store.

The jungle awaits. Grab a vine and swing with us! Chris3
