Reference Guide

Listings

The Listings tab shows every "link" that you've created between a product in your Miva Merchant store and a product in your Amazon store.

The name of this tab is a bit misleading. Unlike eBay, Amazon is not an auction site and does not have time based listings. For Amazon you link products in your Amazon store to identical products in your Miva Merchant store. If you are tracking inventory on that product, your Miva store inventory will drop if a customer buys the product in your Amazon store.

To Link Your Miva Merchant Product to Your Amazon Product

  1. Create a product in your Amazon store.
  2. Create the same product in your Miva Merchant store.
  3. Link the two products.
  4. 3.1. In the admin interface, go to Menu> Marketplaces - Amazon > Listings tab.

    3.2. In the Listings tab, click Add Amazon Product.

    Add Amazon Product

    3.3. Enter a Product Code: Enter the code of a product in your Miva Merchant store. In our example, we have a pen product in our Amazon store. We created the identical product in our Miva Merchant store and gave it the code "pen_vitamin".

    3.4. Click Add.

    3.5. Now Miva Merchant is going to establish a link between the product in your Miva Merchant store and the same product in your Amazon store.

    Add Amazon Product to Miva

    3.6. Select an Account: The Account is the link that we created between our Miva Merchant store and our Amazon store. See Marketplaces - eBay > Accounts Tab.

    3.7. Seller SKU: Enter the SKU (Stock Keeping Unit) of the product in your Amazon store.

    3.8. Click Search.

    Miva Merchant will connect to your Amazon store and try to find the SKU that you entered. If Miva Merchant finds the SKU it will download the product's ASIN and title from your Amazon store. The ASIN is the Amazon Standard Item Number. It's a 10 digit code that Amazon uses to identify products.

    3.9. Click Add Product.

    3.10. There is now a link between the product in your Amazon store and the same product in your Miva Merchant store.

If you edit an Amazon order in the admin interface and you change the status of the order to shipped, the shipment status change is automatically uploaded to your Amazon store. If you are using a thirdparty tool to edit orders, like ShipWorks, the change to shipment status is automatically made in your Miva Merchant store, but you must use the Update Shipping button to update the shipping status in your Amazon store.

If you change the shipment status of an order in your Amazon store, you must use the Get Orders Button to download the shipment status change from your Amazon store to the admin interface.

This button is only visible when you select a product link in the Listing tab. Use the Adjust Price button to change the price of an Amazon product. Using the Adjust Price button does not change the price of a product in your Miva Merchant store.

  1. In the Listings tab, select a product link and click Update Inventory.
  2. In the Update Inventory on Amazon dialog box, change the inventory field to the number of products you want to be available in your Amazon store. In our example below, we are going to make quantity 5 available in our Amazon store. Our Miva Merchant store has quantity 100 of this product.
