The Overview section serves as a centralized dashboard for accessing your Amazon products and orders and delves deeper into your revenue, enhancing your dashboard experience.
This dashboard is designed to present essential insights into both product statistics, including products listed and uploaded.
The View all products button takes the seller to the product section inside our plugin.

General settings include all the basic options you need to set up and improve your product listings when moving from WooCommerce to Amazon. These settings form the foundation for managing your listings smoothly between these platforms.
With the app’s listing configuration features, you can have precise control over your stock levels on Amazon and adjust prices to optimize your sales strategy.
- Stock Levels: For sellers with a large inventory in WooCommerce, you can now choose to list only a portion of your products on Amazon. Set a cap on the quantity to ensure that you maintain control over your stock levels.
- Markup: Price adjustments are made easily with our price markup tool. You can increase or decrease the prices of your Amazon listings without altering the WooCommerce product prices.
Fields within this category aren’t mandatory. However, you are encouraged to complete this voluntarily.
- Information required pertains to Seller’s SKU, Brand Name, Title, Description, Manufacturer, Model Number, and more.
- These attributes serve as template fields, preventing repetitive input. The fields within the global options are automatically filled in all the product templates a seller creates, eliminating the necessity for repetitive management or data entry across various templates.
Ensuring error-free sync between your WooCommerce and Amazon store, the Advance Settings feature lets you:
- Fetch Amazon orders: To synchronize orders from Amazon in WooCommerce, it’s essential for the products in your WooCommerce store and the ordered products on Amazon to share the same SKUs. This SKU alignment ensures seamless synchronization between the two platforms.
- Update inventory to Amazon: To ensure accurate stock updates, it’s crucial for your WooCommerce product and Amazon listing to share identical SKUs. With matching SKUs, the stock in WooCommerce seamlessly syncs with the corresponding Amazon listing. You can easily track the status of these stock updates in the feeds section, ensuring your inventory remains up-to-date and in sync across both platforms.
- Update price on Amazon: Maintaining accurate and up-to-date pricing is crucial for your products on Amazon. Ensure that your product prices are regularly updated on the platform to reflect any changes in cost, promotions, or market conditions. This keeps your product listings competitive and enhances the shopping experience for potential customers.
- Existing product sync: For existing product synchronization, when SKUs don’t match, sellers can use stored EANs, UPCs, or other product identifiers to link their WooCommerce products with their Amazon listings and initiate ASIN synchronization. To facilitate this, sellers must choose the relevant identifier from the dropdown menu once the scheduler is enabled to kickstart the synchronization process. From that point onwards, the process mirrors ASIN synchronization, ensuring that your WooCommerce and Amazon product data remain aligned and up to date.
- ASIN sync: To make ASIN synchronization work smoothly, ensure the SKUs for your WooCommerce products match the ones on your Amazon listings. When these SKUs align, you can easily sync Amazon’s listing ASINs with your WooCommerce products. This setup enables you to manage and create offers for your WooCommerce products on Amazon using the stored ASINs, simplifying your operations across both platforms.
Product templates help you create multiple new templates to map your WooCommerce product categories with the Amazon categories.
To add the product template, click Create new template.
You will be redirected to the New template page (as shown below).
To generate a new template, you must define the WooCommerce categories and attributes, ensuring they align correctly with the corresponding categories on Amazon.
To map the categories from WooCommerce onto Amazon and complete the attributes, follow these steps for seamless product listing:
- Mapping Categories: Begin by selecting the appropriate categories for your products in WooCommerce that correspond to the relevant categories on Amazon. This ensures that your products are listed in the correct Amazon marketplace categories, enhancing visibility to potential customers.
- Attributes: After mapping the categories, fill in the necessary attributes for each product. These attributes include crucial details like product SKU, brand name, product title, comprehensive product descriptions, manufacturer information, model numbers, and other pertinent information specific to your products.
- Saving the Template: Once you’ve meticulously filled in the attributes, saving the template is crucial. Click the “Save Template” button to preserve all your entered data. This saved template will be a valuable reference for future product listings, making the process more efficient and consistent.
The product management dashboard has all the granular data related to your products. You can view every product’s image, name, type, price, profile, status, etc.
It further allows you to filter listings depending on product status (Uploaded, Not Uploaded, ASIN Sync), type, category, and stock. You can even filter out products by directly typing in the right.
