As a business you will have a GS1 company number, which is typically 7-10 digits long (eg 5012345). To use EDI, a ship from location is usually used as a GLN (Global Location Number), too. For example 5012345000001. Your product barcodes will be similar, such as 5012345000002 and so on. Amazon send EDI messages to our servers with these identifiers, so the orders arrive a bit like this:
Amazon Vendor Central (5450534000000), raise an order (2ABCDEFG), the Buyer is Amazon Vendor UK (5450534000024), Deliver to Coventry BHX4 (5450534006842), Invoice Amazon EU Sarl (5450534007139), order items are 5012345000002, quantity X, Price Y ... and so on. Every Amazon Fulfilment centre has a unique shipping location number and we map that to a conventional address for your shipping and systems integrations.
This usage of GS1 Standards is throughout our transmissions to Amazon Vendor and we recommend you ensure compliance in your Amazon Catalogue to check the barcode setup in your item catalogue is accurate.
Chris from KhooCommerce recently wrote an article in collaboration with GS1 discussing the various shipping options you have for Amazon Vendor.
