This article will help you place your products on Amazon. Note that you need valid EAN codes to send your products to Amazon.
1) Amazon connection
Channable connects to your overarching EU account, you do not (yet) need to connect to a specific country. To get the information needed to be able to connect Channable to Amazon go to this login page. Now click "Sign up or manage Amazon MWS" on the right hand side and log in to your account.
2) Copy the required info
Under Amazon MWS Developer Permissions select the option "Authorise a Developer". Now for "Developer's" fill in "Channable", and for "Developer ID" fill in "6553-1316-0844" and click next. Here, accept the terms and give us access to upload product listings to your account. You will then be returned to the Amazon MWS Developer Permissions overview. Here, copy your "Seller ID" and "MWS Authorization Token". You will need these for the next step.

3) Add a new connection in Channable
Go to Channable, open your project and go to APIs > Add new API. Now hit the "+ Add new connection" button.
4) Add label to right connection
The next view asks for a "Label" name. Typ in the field box the name of the connection, for instance: "Amazon EU". Click on the "Amazon" button.
5) Finalize new connection in Channable
The last step to finalize the connection in Channable asks for filling in the information obtained in step 2. Hit "Create" to make the new connection.
6) Build your product listings!
Once you have created the API, you will be sent to the Categories tab. This step enables you to convert your own categorization to that of Amazon (by using the Generate categories feature), or create new categories from scratch.
After you are finished categorizing your products, it's time to create some rules in order to optimize your product data (e.g. excluding certain products). Some common rules to use can be found here. After creating the rules you want to implement, go to build to start building your product listings.
In the 'Build' step you connect the fields containing your EAN or GTIN code, title, description, stock and price, similar to how it's done in the screenshot below.
Almost done! Next up is filling in the fields in the attribute builder. Click the ''Attributes' phase and select the category you want to optimize first. An example of what should be in front of you now can be seen in the screenshot below. A more detailed explanation of the attribute builder's use can be found here.
7) Check and send!
Next, go to the Preview step of your API to check the products that are about to be sent to your Mirakl account. If that looks right, go to the Settings step of your API and activate the API:
Finally, go to APIs and click "Run now" on your newly set Amazon API to start sending the product listings!
