Amazon Sales Channel imports your Amazon Seller Central orders into Magento for review on the Orders tab in Amazon Sales Channel Home.

Orders that are imported:

  • Orders that are in “Unshipped” status in your Amazon Seller Central account at the time of store integration during onboarding.
  • All new orders in your Amazon Seller Central account after store integration.

Orders that are not imported:

  • Orders that existed in your Amazon Seller Central account at the time of store integration but were in a status other than “Unshipped.”

An Amazon order is added to the to the Orders tab when Amazon Sales Channel receives information that Amazon has changed the order status from “Pending” to “Unshipped” in Amazon Seller Central. Amazon places an order in “Pending” status while the order and the payment method are verified. Remember, information sync depends on your cron settings and the time it takes Amazon to process information.

You can review your Amazon order information on the Orders tab.

If your order settings are defined to create a corresponding Magento order for your Amazon orders, you can manage your orders the same way you process your Magento orders. If your order settings are set to not create corresponding Magento orders, you can review your order information on the Orders tab but must manage your orders in Amazon Seller Central.

When managing Amazon orders in Amazon Sales Channel, you will use the Magento Order Management processes and workflows. When you click the Magento order number for the order, the order displays in a new tab the same as if you accessed the order in Sales grid in the admin panel.

To view your Amazon order information:

  1. On the Admin sidebar, click Marketing. Then, under Channels, click Amazon.

  2. In Amazon Sales Channel Home, click the Orders tab.

  3. If you want to view additional details for an individual order, click View Amazon Order Details in the Action column.

    This displays the Amazon Order Details screen to view the details for the selected order.

  4. If you want to manage an individual order, click the number in the Magento Order Number column.

    This displays the Magento order processing screen in a new tab.
