A Professional Amazon Seller account.
Orders from an "Individual" Amazon Seller Account or from an Amazon Web Store Platform cannot be pulled into ShippingEasy and thus are not supported.
Your Amazon Seller ID and MWS Auth Token.
Amazon Marketplaces in Multiple Countries
If you sell on Amazon marketplaces in different countries, you must connect each store separately.
For example, If you sell on Amazon.com and Amazon.ca, you must integrate each of those Amazon marketplaces individually. This way, your ShippingEasy STORES & ORDERS page will list each marketplace as a unique store. Having individual store connections will also help you to track your orders and shipments for each marketplace.
ShippingEasy supports Amazon marketplaces in the US, Canada, UK, France, Germany, Italy, Mexico, and Spain.

Amazon defines personally identifiable information (PII) as any data that can be used to isolate a buyer. On FBA orders, Amazon will not send key pieces of PII to ShippingEasy. This includes the buyer’s name, public email address, recipient address, and gift messages. To learn more about Amazon’s PII policy, visit Amazon’s website.
When an FBA shipment is created, ShippingEasy will display this on your SHIPMENT HISTORY and reporting. However, ShippingEasy cannot display PII data on the order. ShippingEasy will notify you on the SHIPMENT HISTORY screen when an order has been redacted.
When a CSV export includes an FBA shipment, any column with PII data will show as "_Redacted_." The impacted columns include recipient name, recipient address, and gift message.
Additionally, duplicating labels for FBA shipments with redacted information is not allowed.
There are several pieces of data still accessible on FBA orders. This includes:
A masked Amazon email address
Any product details (i.e., line item quantity, line items)
Any order details (i.e., total paid, shipping paid).
If an order has been updated after syncing in ShippingEasy, some changes will be updated to ShippingEasy. For a list of what changes will update, see our article Edit Orders in Store - Changes that Update to ShippingEasy | FAQs.
Amazon requires shippers to mark their orders as Shipped when the package enters the mail stream.
If you purchase labels on the same day you ship the package: By default, ShippingEasy will update Amazon with a Shipped status on the day your label is printed. If you ship your packages the same day you print the labels, you do not need to change your ShippingEasy settings.
If you purchase labels a day or more in advance and post-date the labels: ShippingEasy allows you to delay notification to Amazon until the ship date. This can be done in the Notifications tab of your Store Settings. Amazon will then apply the date the update is received to the order.
Amazon's dates are configured to US Pacific time. When delaying the shipment notifications to your store, select a time that is late enough in the day that it is after midnight US Pacific time.
ShippingEasy uses your local time zone for timing the notification. Set the local time zone in your ACCOUNT SETTINGS.
Ship By Date
The Ship By Date column on the ShippingEasy ORDERS page indicates the latest date you should ship an order to ensure your package arrives at your buyer within the estimated delivery window. This column helps prioritize how and in what order you fulfill your unshipped orders.
Stores using Ship By Date
This column is intended for the following stores: eBay, Amazon, and ChannelAdvisor orders that originated on Amazon. The field will not be populated if you select the Ship By Date on any other store.
The Amazon API limits the number of requests a third party can make during a certain time frame. This limit is called “throttling” and therefore some notifications may be prevented from reaching Amazon immediately. To get notifications through Amazon's throttle, ShippingEasy automatically and periodically resends updates. We recommend that you create labels in Batches to reduce the chance of throttling.
Amazon does not allow ShippingEasy to email Amazon customers directly. Rather, Amazon requires merchants to upload return labels to their system. Then Amazon will email the label to your customer. Learn how to process Amazon returns.
Amazon Merchant Services automatically sends out Shipment Confirmation emails to your customers once their order has been updated and marked as Shipped within Amazon. This is a setting that cannot be changed.
