Automate Your Communication with Amazon
A huge percentage of online shoppers visit the Amazon Marketplace first when making a purchase—so brands need a way to reach these consumers. There are two ways to offer your products on Amazon.com:
- Amazon Seller Central, a portal that sellers can use to market, sell and ship products directly to customers on Amazon.com.
- Amazon Vendor Central, a portal that enables suppliers to sell in bulk and ship direct to Amazon, which in turn sells the products to consumers and ships them from its distribution centers.
Whichever of these programs you participate in, TrueCommerce makes it easy to integrate and automate the exchange of purchase orders, invoices and other transactions with Amazon, while also ensuring that your documents comply with Amazon’s strict requirements.
An Integrated EDI Solution for Amazon Suppliers Using Amazon Vendor Central
If you’re a “first-party seller” that is invited to sell products direct to Amazon through the Vendor Central program, you need to streamline and automate your communications so that you can ship to Amazon distribution centers quickly and accurately. You also need to meet Amazon’s strict EDI requirements. This includes the ability to transmit or receive invoices, purchase orders, advance ship notices (ASNs) and other documents using EDI.

Integration and Automation for Amazon Seller Central Users
Many Amazon Seller Central users must retype Amazon orders by hand into their business systems, and then manually enter tracking numbers into the Amazon Seller Central portal once an item ships. These time-consuming, error-prone manual steps slow down fulfillment and negatively affect profitability.
But with the TrueCommerce Amazon Marketplace Integration, retyping and manual entry will become a thing of the past! Now you can automatically handle both inbound orders from Amazon and outbound tracking information for customers—to maximize the growth potential that Amazon offers.
The integration links your accounting system and the Amazon Seller Central portal. It supports both the Fulfillment by Amazon (FBA) and Fulfillment by Merchant (FBM)/Merchant Fulfilled Network (MFN) shipping programs.
TrueCommerce Amazon Marketplace Integration can be deployed within days. It’s a quick, cost-effective way to achieve increased brand and product exposure on Amazon.
