Amazon Custom Feature Integration

Original post from user Gerardo Carmona

 

Hello,

 

We would like to see a feature where Shipstation can import text based customization information for Amazon Custom orders. These are listings that the customer can personalize their product through a predetermined set of choices (such as font, text, text color, placement). We would like to have this import into shipstation so we can know what text, font and color the customer has chosen to personalize their product with. Thanks!

ShipStation recently partnered with a vendor called Data Automation that has built a connector to import the orders and order details from both Amazon Custom and Amazon Handmade stores. 

 

Check out the Amazon Custom section of our Amazon Marketplace help article for more details! Or you can go ahead and send an email to amazoncustom@dataautomation.com to discuss and sign up for the service. Please note fees will apply.

Hi,

 

Is there any update / future changes with this? As the data automation option is WAY TOO EXPENSIVE (It's more than my monthly Shipstation fee!) just for a few lines of text.

 

many thanks, Sarah

 It's such a basic feature and the fact that Shipstation refuses to implement it and expects us to pay additional money to a different company on top of what we already pay to Shipstation is absolutely bonkers.

Amazon actually makes this difficult. For whatever reason they do not make custom/personalized item information available via their API, which means integrations like ShipStation cannot access it, not without implementing some workarounds.

Can you please provide the pricing info for your solution? The other solution is stupidly expensive. I might just have to switch to Shipping Easy because they've already integrated it.

Thanks but I'm not interested in paying a monthly fee for this. I use NickH's solution. It works well and there is no monthly fee.

I also needed a fix for this, so as a computer programmer I developed a solution which I now offer to others via my software company BlueWare Labs. This is an alternative to Data Automation's solution. You can learn more about my solution here: https://bluewarelabs.wordpress.com/shipstation-amazon-custom-import/

Hi Nick,

 

Could you please let me know the pricing for this solution?

 

I've only got a handful of orders from Amazon handmade per month, but I want to get it set up properly before I invest more time into Amazon ... as I don't want errors from having to copy and paste!

 

Many thanks, Sarah

Hey Nick, what's your current pricing? Your website just says to contact you.

ShipStation overrides Customized Amazon Orders even though it is transferred by a Third Party Application. However, SellerActions solved that problem. I highly recommend their solution.

Sarah,

Despite what you say and other comments below over the past 2 years, there are still NO realistic options for Amazon Handmade sellers considering using ShipStation.

If other developers can access this additional data from Amazon, are you seriously telling me that your developers are not capable of doing the same and therefore ShipStation has to rely upon a third party! I have managed software development teams and know that this is a relatively trivial task. I have even passed details of a good technical starting point onto my ShipStation Account Manager for your developers (not allowed to post links here).

Amazon Handmade sellers are mostly small businesses that can't afford to be paying DataAutomation monthly charges, which are actually more per month than ShipStation itself:

DataAutomation Amazon Store Automation Pricing:
*Up to 50 orders per month = $34.00/month
*Up to 500 order per month = $67.00/month
*Up to 1,000 orders per month = $109.00/month

Your current approach is very short-sighted as I am forced into looking at ShipStation alternatives.

Please pass my feedback on to the ShipStation Product Manager for their consideration.
