After July 2021, the 2.3.x release line will no longer receive quality updates, or user guide updates. PHP 7.3 reaches end of support in December 2021 and Adobe Commerce 2.3.x reaches end of support in September 2022. We strongly recommend planning your upgrade now to Adobe Commerce 2.4.x to help maintain PCI compliance.

Step 2 Options for Listing Settings

If you are managing a store that is in “Active” or “Inactive” status, see Stock/Quantity.

The Stock/Quantity settings are used to sync the product quantity details from your Magento storefront to the quantity on your Amazon Seller Central account. This tool is very powerful and can be leveraged for additional advertising by displaying urgency to the buyer while keeping your inventory organized. For example, some merchants may have 150 items of a particular SKU in stock in their warehouse, and want to make sure that Amazon shoppers can purchase all of their inventory. Other merchants may wish to only list one item at a time to create a sense of scarcity to the end user. To do this, you would set the Maximum Listed Quantity to 1.

Quantity is a regional attribute, and based on the Amazon Marketplace option selected during store integration. When a change is made to a product’s quantity, the change will affect all Amazon listings that share that Amazon Seller SKU in your Amazon stores that sell in the same region (as defined during the store’s integration). This means that a change to a shared Amazon Seller SKU in the North America region will not affect your Amazon stores with a region set for a different region (as defined during the store’s integration). Your first Amazon store that is set up (with the oldest creation date) controls priority in the quantity settings.

These settings are part of your store’s Listing Settings. Update these configurations during onboarding through the Listing Settings step.

For Magento 2.3.x users, Amazon Sales Channel supports the use of the Multi Source Inventory (MSI) extension without any additional setup. See Managing Inventory.

To configure Stock / Quantity settings:

  1. Expand the Stock / Quantity section.

  2. For Out-of-Stock Threshold (required), enter a numerical value for the lowest quantity of a product in order to keep the product eligible for its Amazon listing (default is 0).

    This means that if your Magento product stock goes lower than this number, the respective Amazon listing will be ineligible for sales through Amazon.

  3. For Maximum Listed Quantity (required), enter a numerical value for the quantity you wish to display in your Amazon listing.

    This will list all your eligible Amazon listings at the entered value. As soon as an item is sold, the Amazon listing will continue to display this quantity. The displayed listing quantity available will always use this value, even when your actual product quantity is higher or lower. This setting is typically used when you do not manage product inventory. For example, you may have a product with a quantity of 80 in your Magento catalog. With this Maximum Listed Quantity set to 10, the Amazon listing will always display a quantity available of 10 and will refresh each time a sale is made for the product.

  4. For “Do Not Manage Stock” Quantity (required), enter a quantity value to display for your Amazon listings.

    Amazon requires that you publish an available quantity. For Magento products that are set to not manage stock but you want to list them on Amazon, the listing will be published with available quantity entered here.

When complete, continue to the Fulfilled By section.
