The Amazon Vendor EDI Compliant Order Management Integration

21 April 2017 09:07

Amazon Vendor Central EDI Compliance

KhooCommerce uses an EDI integration with Amazon Vendor to process orders and submit delivery information. Details of the available EDI files are below and the diagram pictures the process. This is managed as part of the KhooCommerce Order Management system and can be considered as one of your 'channels' within your business. 

KhooCommerce process Amazon Vendor orders on a single channel, with one customer, Amazon. Orders are stock controlled and either processed or back ordered , according to your stock levels and routing request details are then processed. When setting up your integration, we shall work closely with your chosen fulfilment partner to align with their processes. 

After signing up as a KhooCommerce client, KhooCommerce will use your Amazon Vendor Central (AVC) username and password to access the testing portal. When in production, KhooCommerce uses an AS2 connection to pull orders from Amazon and push them into the KhooCommerce ERP. Likewise all returning documents to Amazon are sent over AS2. All of the document transmissions happen behind the scenes and setting up the integration requires testing and communication through AVC’s portal. All testing with Amazon will be carried out by KhooCommerce on your organization’s behalf. Amazon require you to run manually for a short period, alongside the integration, to ensure that this is working correctly.
