Does ShippingEasy import Amazon Fulfillment Network shipments & inventory?

Created:   |   Updated:

Amazon Fulfillment Network orders are automatically "Fulfilled by Amazon". These orders should not be fulfilled using a third-party system like ShippingEasy. That said, ShippingEasy is able to import these shipments. It can also import your available Fulfillment by Amazon (FBA) inventory levels. Enabling these options improves reporting and boosts visibility.

NOTE: this feature is only supported on US-based Amazon stores.

Once Amazon has fulfilled an order, ShippingEasy can import FBA shipment and inventory levels. This happens during the existing store sync process, every hour. You can also run a manual sync should you want to import these sooner. Learn how to download new orders and shipments. 

When FBA available inventory updates is enabled:

ShippingEasy displays the available quantities for each Product SKU stored at an FBA warehouse. This allows you to see your FBA inventory levels along side all other inventory levels. Further leverage this data with low stock alerts and reporting for your FBA managed inventory. Learn how to set low stock alerts for your products.

When importing FBA shipments is enabled:

The Amazon Fulfillment Network shipments are displayed on your SHIPMENT HISTORY page. Once imported, data on your Fulfillment by Amazon (FBA) shipments will be at your fingertips. Run reports on and search for your FBA shipments, customers and products.

NOTE: Fulfillment by Amazon shipments count towards monthly shipping volume. Learn more.
