Pipe17 supports the following data flows for the Amazon Seller Central connector. Let's review them in higher detail:

- Push fulfillments to Amazon Seller Central: Turning on this toggle will enable Pipe17 to push fulfillments and tracking data into your Amazon account after this data has been pulled in from another fulfillment source.
Amazon Seller Central V3 Settings (Integration Specific Settings)
In addition to the above order flow settings, the Amazon Seller Central connector also features a host of filters that can help you manage your orders and listings more granularly. Let's review those in detail as well!
- Only process information in selected Amazon marketplaces: Add one or more Amazon marketplace titles to this field to tell Pipe17 to process orders and pull/push inventory for only these selected locations. Example: Mexico, Canada, United States. Leaving the field blank will assume that all orders can be pulled regardless of the marketplace.
- Exclude orders created before this date: Add a date/time to this field to tell Pipe17 to pull in orders created ONLY after that date/time. By default, Pipe17 will pull orders created after the time of initial integration.
- Only pull FBA, FBM, or both types of orders from Amazon Seller Central: If you would like Pipe17 to pull either FBA or FBM orders, you can add either "FBA orders" or "FBM orders" to this field. By default, Pipe17 will pull both.
- Process only orders with matched SKUs: Add one or more SKU value to this field to tell Pipe17 to only pull orders for those SKUs. Leaving this field blank will assume that there are no SKU limitations to process orders.
- Submit settlement reports to a specific URL: If you are submitting settlement reports to a specific service or integration, add the URL in this field. Otherwise, leave this field blank.
- Do not apply shipping method when pushing fulfillments to Amazon Seller Central: Turn this toggle on so that Pipe17 will will apply the shipping method used per order when pushing fulfillments to Amazon Seller Central. Turning this toggle on will inform your customers of which shipping method was used to fulfill the order (ie: Expedited, 2-Day Delivery, etc)
- Process only products with matched SKUs: Add one or more SKU value to this field to tell Pipe17 to pull in only these products from your Amazon catalog.
- Process only inventory with matched SKUs: Add one or more SKU value to this field to tell Pipe17 to update inventory for only these products.
- Define source location for inventory updates: Enter an Amazon marketplace location to tell Pipe17 to update inventory for only this location.
- Force Fulfilled By Merchant (FBM) option for SKUs affected by inventory updates: Since FBA inventory is typically managed by Amazon, turn on this option so that Pipe17 can push inventory updates for FBM only.
- Force Fulfillment Latency option (positive number) for SKUs affected by inventory updates: This marks an item in Amazon as requiring additional lead time, so inventory should be adjusted to reflect that. Leave this field blank to omit the option entirely.
