Sync Your Amazon Seller Central Sales Data to Greenback

Overview

This tutorial is how to sync your Amazon Seller Central sales data to Greenback. Greenback supports North America (U.S., Canada, and Mexico marketplaces), Europe (Germany, United Kingdom, Italy, France, and Spain marketplaces), and Australia. You will need to set up each region that you sell in for Greenback to capture all of your sales and sales-related fees. Make sure that you already have a Greenback account (paid subscription) and an Amazon Seller Central account (Pro Seller monthly subscription). You will be setting up your Amazon User Permissions and creating your Seller ID and a MWS Auth Token and sharing them with Greenback.

Pro-Tip: Instructions are intended for Amazon Marketplaces (Amazon Seller Central-Regions) and Amazon Handmade (even when fee is waived) with a Pro Seller subscription.

NOTE: Remember that Amazon only allows the Super Admin (store owner) to add a 3rd party app developer to their seller account. Once added, Greenback allows collaboration and multi-user access.

Amazon Seller Central (North America)

1. Set Up Your Amazon User Permissions

Go directly to Amazon Seller Central (North America) https://sellercentral.amazon.com/apps/manage and login to your account if you haven’t already. Then go to Settings>User Permissions. Scroll down and click the yellow “Authorize a Developer” button.

On the Amazon Marketplace Web Service (Amazon MWS) screen, copy/paste “Greenback” and “356525836929” into the Developer Name and ID fields as shown below and click Next.

Developer Name: Greenback

Developer ID: 356525836929

On the confirmation screen, click the checkbox “I understand…” to confirm access, click Next.

You are going to share that with Greenback in order to sync your sales and sales-related fee data so don’t close that tab yet. Watch the video below to see how easy it is!

Now with your Seller ID and Auth Token on hand, go directly to Greenback https://www.greenback.com/app/connects/amazon-seller-na and login in if you weren’t already.

3. Sync Amazon to Greenback

Next copy/paste the Seller ID and MWS Auth Token into their respective fields and click Connect. You are done! Greenback will complete an initial sync and you will see your sales, marketplace fees (subscription, Referral, Variable Closing, etc., purchases, refunds, etc.) if you have any.

Here’s a short video demonstrating how to connect your Amazon Seller Pro account to Greenback. Remember that the goal is to create then find your 1. Seller ID (above) and your 2. MWS auth token (below) easily and then share them with Greenback. (You can safely skip copying the middle since they have already been captured).

See instructions below for Amazon Seller Central (Europe) and Amazon Seller Central (Australia) if applies to you to complete your set up.

Pro-Tip: Free users have access to a limited amount of historical transactions on Greenback. Paid users can request a "Catch Me Up" support ticket to get more historical data synced to Greenback. View our Pricing Plans for more info.

How to Request Amazon Statements Older than 90 Days

If you need Amazon Seller Central statements containing transactions older than 90 days, you need to specifically request them. Amazon removes statements after 90 days by default. Here’s a video demonstrating how to request Amazon statements to be available again for processing or download.

Greenback isn’t able to access anything past 90 days unless you re-enable them. Just go in and click on "Request Report" for the statements you want to make available again for an additional 90 days.

On your Amazon Seller Central dashboard go to the Payments Summary section and click on “View Payments Summary”. Next, go to “All Statements” tab. Click on Request Report(s) for the settlement period(s) you need to access. This makes those transactions available again for 90 days and then they are removed again by default by Amazon. While they are accessible, you are essentially sharing them with Greenback just like they were new transactions being auto-fetched for you. You do not have to worry about duplicates. Greenback always searches for matching transactions and prevents them.
