1. Sign In
2. Go to “Amazon Settings”
You should arrive at the screen shown below after signing in. You can also reach it by clicking “Manage.” Once you’re there, click “Marketplaces” to begin setting up your Amazon account.
You will arrive on the “Add New Account” screen. You can click “Connected Amazon accounts” to see any accounts you have already set up.
If you click on “Connected Amazon accounts,” you can return to setting up your new account by clicking “Add New Account.”
3. Select an Amazon Account & Customize Your Settings
Click “Choose marketplace (required)” and select the region associated with the Amazon account you wish to connect.
Next, create your new support email. Simply enter a username and @channelreply.email will automatically be added to the end.
Checking off the “Default” option will set this account as the one your helpdesk uses when you initiate conversations with Amazon customers. Be sure to check it off if this is your only Amazon account. If you have more than one Amazon account, choose only one of them to set as your default.
Next, enter a tag for this Amazon account. In your helpdesk, this tag will identify every message you receive from this account.
If you previously linked Amazon to your helpdesk with email forwarding, you should enter the old address in the “Old Amazon email” field now. Doing so will let us deliver existing Amazon tickets to your helpdesk.
Once finished, click “Save” to finalize this information. This will take you to Amazon Seller Central.
4. Give Us Permission to Access Your Account as a Developer
Sign in to your Amazon seller account. You will be shown an Amazon Marketplace Web Services agreement authorizing ChannelReply to integrate with your account. To agree to the terms and continue setup, check the box and then click “Next.”
All you need to do on the next screen is click “Continue” to return to our website.
5. Update Your Email Addresses
You’ll be brought back to the “Connected Amazon accounts” page. You should now see info about the Amazon account you’ve just integrated with ChannelReply.
Before ChannelReply can begin managing your Amazon messages, we need to configure your Amazon support email. Click “Edit Account.”
Note: Since we had to use a real account to finish the Amazon setup process, you’ll see “Plumburs” as the brand and account name rather than “mybusiness” from now on.
Copy your ChannelReply email address to your clipboard. Next, click the blue “Amazon account info” hyperlink to open your Amazon Seller Information page in a new tab.
Enter your ChannelReply email address in both the “Customer Service E-mail” and “Customer Service Reply-to E-mail” fields. Then click “Submit.”
Let’s just check one more thing to make sure Amazon has applied all the changes. Hover over "Settings" in the upper right of your Seller Central screen and click "Notification Preferences."
Scroll down to “Messaging.” See if your @channelreply.email address is listed as the email for “Buyer Messages.”
If it isn’t, simply click the orange-yellow “Edit” button to the right of “Messaging” and enter your ChannelReply email in the “Buyer Messages” field. Then click “Save.”
You have now finished setting up customer messaging. If you'd also like to receive one-way notifications from Amazon in your helpdesk, you can arrange that on this screen. See “How to Forward Amazon Notifications to Your Helpdesk” for details.
Congratulations on integrating your Amazon account with ChannelReply! Simply go to "Account status" in your ChannelReply account and click "Enable Service," and we’ll start sending Amazon messages to your helpdesk (Zendesk, Freshdesk or Desk.com) presently.
