#1

Amazon Article Index

When we communicate with Amazon on your behalf we use the Amazon Marketplace Web Services (MWS). This is an API that accepts XML feeds. Different feeds are used for the various requests that we make.

Product Feed
This is the base feed that is used to upload your product descriptions (except stock level, price and image) to Amazon. All other feeds depend on this feed. If this feed doesn’t succeed then the other feeds won’t issue.

Inventory Feed
This is the feed that sends Amazon the stock levels associated with your items.

Price Feed
This is the feed that sends Amazon the price that you wish to charge for your items.

Image Feed
This is the feed that tells Amazon where to find images of your products.

Matrix Item Feeds
The following feeds only concern matrix items. If you have no matrix items that you wish to push to Amazon or if you want your matrix items to exists on separate product pages then you can ignore these feeds.

Parent Product Feed
This is the feed that sends a parent container for matrix items to Amazon. The relationship feed will not issue for matrix items if this feed fails for a matrix item.

Relationship Feed
This is the feed that relates parent and child items in matrix items. It is dependent on the parent product feed.

Parent Image Feed
This is the feed that tells Amazon where to find images of matrix items.
