Amazon provides a very robust SellerCentral and as an online retailer it normally caters to all of the operational and business needs. While this works for most businesses it doesn’t really cater to a lot of custom use cases needed to run a business or honestly it doesn’t cater to create a differentiation to other online retailer competitions. Amazon MarketPlace API’s or Amazon MWS API’s enables sellers to go above the competition, it gives sellers the ability to get the data in real time from Amazon without opening the SellerCentral.
What Is Amazon MWS?
According to the document provided by the Amazon Team here is what they say “Amazon Marketplace Web Service (Amazon MWS) is an integrated web service API that helps Amazon sellers to programmatically exchange data on listings, orders, payments, reports, and more. Data integration with Amazon enables high levels of selling automation, which can help sellers grow their business. By using Amazon MWS, sellers can increase selling efficiency, reduce labor requirements, and improve response time to customers. There are no fees associated with Amazon MWS, but to use the Amazon MWS API you must have an Amazon MWS-eligible seller account and you must register to use Amazon MWS.”
I think they have done a wonderful job in explaining the terms in a language that anyone can understand, but if I have to reword it here is how I would tweet about it… “MWS API allows user to get data available in SellerCentral in realtime to make a SMART & Customized business solutions for existing sellers”
Smart MWS Business Solutions?
Let me not make this article boring by talking about technical stuff, I am going to do that later at the end of the article so people who are just going to hire us to write their applications can save important time of their life. (J/K)
I will talk about few smart solutions in different areas of the business and then when we get on the phone we can discuss more about custom ideas.
Amazon Success = Win Buy Box
Again I might sound repetitive but we are all well aware of the fact that succeeding on Amazon is all about winning the buy box. Okay that’s easier said than done, everyone is in the same race and everyone is using either the native repricer or some off the shelf repricer. But sellers who really understand Amazon know that being successful on Amazon is not only winning the buy box but also maximizing profits, which can only happen if there is a custom formula built for their business. Amazon via a combination of MWS API and SQS Notifications gives the ability to create a custom application which will not only work better than the other repricers but also has given the ability to create Custom Formulas for the same.
Ship Easy = Save Money
Most of the sellers across the world as they grow the 1st person they hire would be in the shipping department, which is awesome but it takes away the smartness and reacting to the situation away from the most important operation. A lot of sellers create fantastic SOP but with the attrition they see in the Shipping department it becomes very difficult for them to keep on training a new person. AMAZON MWS allows sellers to automate the Standard Operating Procedures not only for their current setup but as a process also allows them to see what can be done better. A smart shipping API integration allows the sellers to make that extra dime which takes them ahead of the competition.
There are many more solutions that can be developed and I will be writing about them in coming days.

Is MWS Complex?
There is a mix thought here, there are a lot of clients who come to us with the understanding that it’s super easy to integrate Amazon MWS, which is true in a way but there are a lot of things to take care during the time of implementation. Solutions made out of AMAZON MWS API are by itself super customized and might have a lot of complicated business logics, so it is very important to work with someone who has done this in the past correctly because we have seen that sometimes things work but don’t scale up correctly for later use.
