Creation Profiles inside Salestio — Shopify Amazon Integration is a way to extend amazon listing information with extra details or create a completely new amazon listing if it not yet present on the amazon marketplace.
NB! In order to create new Amazon Listing, it's important to have a product Barcode (UPC/EAN) or have a GTIN exemption active in your account. More details regarding the GTIN exception you can find in this article — How to Activate GTIN exemption
Creation Profiles is located together with other profiles and could be accessed via the main menu and Creation Profiles tab
Every Creation profile could be created for a single Amazon marketplace. For exporting products to multiple marketplaces, it will be required to create a separate Creation profile for each marketplace where products planned to be exported.
At the first step of creating a new "Creation Profile, it will be needed to select one of the available marketplace and also define a name for it. Plus choose a number of images you would like to export to amazon.
Other options are pre-filled already to fetch data from your Shopify product details. In the future, we plan to extend this number of options and give the possibility to adjust how details could be transformed.
The next step is to connect products from Shopify Shop to Amazon categories and attributes.
Please take a look at this screenshot to get a better understanding of how this could do
After Department selected it will be needed to fill list of attributes:
Amazon is not very accurate in providing required and options fields. So even if an attribute marked as required it possible to skip filling it. In the worst-case scenario, amazon will complain about it during the time of exporting the product. So attributes always could be added later. The higher attribute is in the list, then the bigger chance that amazon will be needed for creating of listing.
When all available data filled into the amazon attribute list, please click the button "Add mapping"
Then inside Creation Profile will be possible to see a list of existing connections between Shopify Products and Amazon categories.
At the same Creation Profile you can add multiple Mapping, so please continue to add new mappings. In the end, the mapping list should cover all products that planned to be export on the amazon marketplace.
It is possible to add to this form later, including editing or removing mapping lines that not accurate anymore.
When all mapping is created, please click on the button "Create Profile"
After the operation finished you will see your newly created "Creation Profile" inside the list of available profiles.
