Add or Verify the Amazon API Key

When accessing Amazon Sales Channel, Magento automatically checks and validates the Amazon API key you have added in your store configuration. If validated, then you can move on to the next step, Store Integration.

If the Amazon API key is missing, invalid, or expired, you must update your key. A message displays prompting you to get an API key and to add they key to your Amazon Sales Channel configuration.

To get and add the Amazon API key as prompted:

The API key is validated each time you access your Amazon Sales Channel.

  1. Log into the Magento Admin.

  2. On the Admin sidebar, go to Marketing > Channels > Amazon. If you need to update your API key, the following screen displays to prompt you through the process.
