Magento Commerce, 2.2.x
Creating Attributes for Amazon

Prior to onboarding your Amazon Seller Central accounts, we recommend adding Magento product attributes to map your product listings. After you complete onboarding, you can manage your product attributes through the Managing Attributes tab of the Amazon Sales Channel Home.

These instructions detail how to create Magento attributes for Amazon ASIN and Amazon Condition. We recommend creating additional attributes including Amazon EAN, Amazon ISBN, and Amazon UPC. You may want to also create an Amazon Price attributeA characteristic or property of a product; anything that describes a product. Examples of product attributes include color, size, weight, and price. if you want to use your Amazon listing price as a price source for pricing rules. These attributes are used when configuring your listing and pricing settings during onboarding. They are also be used when creating Amazon listings and when updating and syncing your Magento catalog with your Amazon listings.

Catalog Search settings enable you to set matching search parameters that help to map eligible Magento products with Amazon listings. Once mapped, Amazon activates actions related to pricing, quantity, overrides, and order and product synchronization.

Defining these values increases the potential for exact matches, minimizing the need to manually match product listings later. Adding the attributes as part of your onboarding Pre-Setup Tasks, Amazon Sales Channel has a higher potential for automatically matching your products during onboarding and syncs product data between Amazon and Magento after onboarding.

If you only create the Amazon ASIN attribute (without adding ASIN values per product), your Magento products may not automatically your Amazon listings will automatically. You can manually match your products through Store Review. However, manual matching does not create the data elements needed to share and sync your product data.

Important: If you manually matched a product and you need to update an ASIN, UPC, or other data element for the product, you would have to update the data in both places, in your Magento catalog and in your Amazon listing in your Amazon Seller Central account.
