Updated by Ash on 01 October 2015 02:54
This page explain how to integrate a 'Supplier' account with your ChannelMAX account for repricing and inventory management.
A) As a first step, please configure your Supplier FTP credentials in ChannelMAX under 'Settings-->Dropship-->My Supplier 1-->Section 5' with 'File name to download' populated with appropriate files as supplied by the Supplier.
B) Next, under 'Settings-->Dropship-->My Supplier 1' click on 'Enable Feed' and enter Supplier name and SKU Prefix. For example, if you use Supplier 'LiveEx' then SKU prefix should be 'LX-', for ApparelW prefix could be 'AB-' and so on.
ChannelMAX automatically creates a folder with same name as the supplier name and moves all the SKUs present in the supplier file to this folder. This is just for better categorization of the SKUs in ChannelMAX, it has no other impact.
All the SKUs from that supplier are bucketed into the same as suppliername. You may create a new repricing model named exact same as SupplierName, then that is the default repricing model used in repricing.
C) Next, click on 'Create New Item In ChannelMAX' under option#10 with 'Selling Venue' option selected. Apply these changes by clicking on 'Save' button. Please make sure that default selling venue is selected from the drop down list, if connected multiple Amazon locales.
E) For quantity feed setup from ChannelMAX to Amazon, you may configure option#3 as needed:
DropShip Buffer Quantity:
Weekend Buffer Quantity:
LeadTime To Ship:
E) Option#4a should be check marked under 'Settings-->Selling Venues' for the appropriate Amazon Channel to enable quantity feed.
F) Once the above details are saved in ChannelMAX under 'Settings-->Dropship-->My Supplier 1' page, please notify us via support ticket or email to firstname.lastname@example.org. Our support team would validate your account setup and update you for any changes as needed.
G) Once all these steps are validated, our admin team would schedule FTP process on our server.
