How to Connect Amazon Seller to Bookkeep

Walkthrough of the steps to get Amazon Seller up and running

To begin utilizing Bookkeep's automated journal entries for Amazon Seller, you must connect the Amazon store where you would like to import the data from. Below we will go step-by-step through the setup process to ensure you are ready to go!

1. First connect your Amazon Seller store by clicking on Integrations -> Apps -> Add an app while logged into your Bookkeep organization and searching for “Amazon Selling Partner” in the dropdown menu, either by scrolling or typing the app’s name into the search bar.

2. Clicking on the “Amazon Selling Partner” icon will open a pop-up window with options on how you can connect your Amazon store:

A. “Connect now”- use your Amazon Seller login

B. “Ask Owner to connect” - gives you the option to invite the store owner to connect it for you if you do not have the store credentials. Here you can enter the Amazon store owner’s email and send an invite for an one time connection of their store to the Bookkeep app.

4. Now that your Amazon store is connected to Bookkeep, you will need to complete your mapping to the accounts from your Accounting Platform (e.g. QBO) which can be found on the Connections tab and clicking on the “Setup – Configure – Map" links for Amazon. Completing the mapping for your Amazon Summary and Amazon Deposit templates will activate the posting of a daily journal entry for each template that is turned on. Note that Amazon Deposits usually are disbursed every two weeks, so there will be no daily entry posted to your accounting platform on days without payouts. The same is true for days that have no sales activity in Amazon, there will be no $0.00 journal entries posted.

Once you have mapped the necessary journal entry templates you are good to go and you will see journal entries beginning to post to your accounting platform the next day or you can also post historical data as needed.

Note: You can refer to our “Amazon Seller Journal Entry Templates” article for more information regarding mapping.
