FBA Shipments – Import from Amazon


Overview

Instead of creating an FBA Shipment in Sellercloud, you also can choose to create and prepare your shipment in Seller Central and then import it in Sellercloud. Once you’ve completed the shipment in Seller Central, Sellercloud makes importing it easy and will ensure that inventory is deducted properly based on what you have shipped to Amazon.

Note: When importing an unshipped shipment, the Box Content Feed selection will not be imported from Seller Central and will have to be set manually in Sellercloud. For fully shipped shipments, you will need to select a Ship From warehouse that is non bin-enabled. The bin cannot be determined automatically upon import.

  1. Create the FBA inbound shipment in Seller Central.
  2. Complete the shipping plan process and approve the shipment.
  3. In Sellercloud, open the FBA Inbound Shipment page > click Create New Shipment.
  4. Add a Description and Priority > click Continue.
  5. On the new Shipment page, click Action Menu > Import Shipment from FBA > Go.
  6. On the Import FBA Shipment page, complete the Enter shipment ID field (shipment ID from Seller Central) > Preview Import.

Note: The Preview page may show important information that could become an issue when importing. These include “kit not set as Independent,” “SKU doesn’t exist in Sellercloud,” and “SKU is not set to FBA.” However, you can resolve these issues and preview the shipment again to confirm resolution.

The shipment will import with a Working status. However, if the shipment already shipped from Seller Central, the shipment will import as Closed and inventory will be removed from the regular Ship From warehouse. A movement record will display in the Inventory Movement page.
