Automate Your Amazon Seller Central Inventory with Make

Amazon Seller Central integrations were finally available on Make last August 2023. Now, automating your business is almost as easy as selling on Amazon. 

Being an Amazon seller is as rewarding as it is challenging. Keeping up with your ever-changing inventory, finances, and time management is exhausting for a small business owner. Fortunately, you don't have to be in such a heavy situation when automation is readily available to the public.

Here is when automating with Make saves the day! 

Make is a no-code automation platform that allows you to create and build your workflow. Think of it as the Apple of all automation platforms. It's easy, pretty, and flexible.

What are Amazon Seller Central integrations?

Make currently has 14 available Amazon Seller Central integrations you can play around with. There are three (3) module groups for Amazon Seller Central integrations: Triggers, Actions, and Search. 

Individual modules have specific uses for your Amazon Seller Central automation with Make. Order and Catalog inventory are the prime uses you can design with Make. 

What can I do with Amazon Seller Central Integrations in Make?

Let’s first dissect and understand the three (3) prime modules Amazon Seller Central integrations Make offers. 

I. Triggers

  1. Watch New Orders
  2. Watch Orders Updates

II. Actions

  1. Create a Report
  2. Get a Report
  3. Download a Report Document
  4. Get a Catalog Item
  5. Get an Item Offer
  6. Get an Order
  7. Make an API call

III. Search

  1. List Order Lines
  2. Search Catalog Items 
  3. Search Competitive Pricing 
  4. Search Orders
  5. Search Products Pricing

Okay, now that we recognize all current Amazon Seller Central modules, let us understand each group’s usage. 

Triggers - It is an event that jumpstarts the workflow. Triggers are usually the first module we use to detect a current activity of our Amazon Seller Central account

Actions - It is an event that follows the trigger. At the same time, action modules can also work as an initial module in a workflow that is not necessarily sensitive to the latest event of your Amazon Seller Central account. 

Search - An instruction module that searches for anything related to your Amazon Seller Central account. 

These Make modules are primarily functional for inventory management and cataloging. Redundant tasks that are innately time-consuming and frustrating for a small business owner. 

What are examples of practical uses of automating Amazon Seller Central?

The fun starts now! We know the available integrations and their usage, so let us learn two (2) practical uses. 

Check out this video if you want to learn along Manuel!

If you’re still here, then buckle up!

Practical Use 1: Watching New Orders

It is a no-brainer that keeping an eye on new orders for your order inventory is such a taxing job, especially when you have ample monthly sales. Luckily, this is a strenuous, redundant task that we can automate. 

Let’s try to keep this simple. 

Let’s analyze the scenario and determine the modules used in the image. 

As we can see, the scenario starts with a trigger (Watch New Orders) followed by a search (List Order Lines), then tabulated by a tool (Text Aggregator) to assemble an action (Make an API call). 

It’s as easy as it can get! However, the real challenge is setting the parameters for each module. Each Amazon Seller Central module has parameters that we need to filter or fill up to form accurate commands for Make. 

We recommend you watch our Amazon Seller Central | Make video guide to visualize the parameter settings needed for each module. 

Practical Use 2: Creating Reports 

Remember how action modules can also begin a workflow? In this example, we will only use Amazon Seller Central action modules and build a scenario. Automating report creation is a big help in conserving time and mental fatigue in doing inventory.

Heads up! It will look intimidating at a glance. 

Now, our scenario looks more complex than the first example. But don’t worry, we’ll try to decode its structure.

Notice how this scenario has only three (3) Amazon Seller Central actions

Create a Report, Download a Report, and Make an API call are the main Amazon Seller Central modules used in this report creation automation. Again, like in our first example, each module has parameters to be filtered or set. 

The remaining modules are Make tools that most Make users know. Fortunately, the Download a Report module provides notes for users to examine. 

From this, we can follow the note and add the Archive and parse JSON since it is needed

Once we’ve set that up, we only have Iterator and Tool (Text Aggregator) to tabulate the data before it reflects on the Google Sheet (Make an API call). 

If you’re still lost, we recommend watching our Amazon Seller Central | Make video guide for a thorough review of the practical uses. 

Let’s wrap up!

The addition of Amazon Seller Central in Make is a helpful automation piece for Amazon sellers struggling with time management and inventory. The integrations are straightforward and convenient to use, especially in inventory analysis.
