Import Amazon RMAs

Overview

An Amazon customer may initiate a return to either exchange or return purchased items. Amazon will automatically authorize the return and send the customer a prepaid shipping label.

A return report can be downloaded from Amazon and imported into Sellercloud either automatically or manually.

  • If the item in the report is a kit parent, SellerCloud will add the components to the RMA instead of the parent
  • Amazon RMA ID will be saved to the Order Source RMA #
  • A label tracking number will be added as an RMA note
  • RMAs will only be imported if their status on the report is “Approved”
  • The resolution will be set to Refund
  • RMA status will be Open
