After adding the channel you can manage all the related processes in the uniware.

Below are the important points that needs to be kept in mind while adding the channel.

  1. Sellers who are working with Flex EDI or old models, can’t add channel in UC with existing seller flex credentials, they need to connect with Unicommerce team for Seller Flex WI API model integration purposes. Connect with us
  2. Dry run required with 3-4 listings after successful integration on new Seller Flex WI API channel. Make sure to remove such listings from old sites to avoid extra inventory sync.
  3. Once seller migrates from any WMS (Seller Flex old models), they have to remove inventory from the ongoing seller flex panel. This deactivates the older seller flex account and hence starts routing orders to new seller flex WI API account.
  4. In connectors, API credentials to be filled.
    Yojaka ID and KMS Key will be provided by Amazon team to Unicommerce after site Launch. You can connect with Uniware team for further setup in Uniware backend.

Offering by Uniware 

  1. Unicommerce offers you Inventory sync, Order processing and Catalog Sync.

  2. Catalog Sync: By catalog sync, you’ll see seller sku code in both the fields i.e. Channel product id and seller SKU codes.

  3. Inventory updated: Inventory from UC against seller flex channel will not be visible on seller flex portal. However, to check the inventory sellers can cross-verify seller central account, where Amazon shows inventory against all modes of operations (Flex, FBA and dropship).

  4. Dimension update on listing: There must be any +iv dimension and weight on each product in uniware linked with Flex listings. We recommend to use the correct weight and dimension which is used for Amazon.

  5. Order Processing: Orders will be pushed by channel to Uniware. As per channel SOPs, order creation in Uniware can be delayed up to 72 hours from channel creation time. All orders get sync in the ‘Unverified’ tab. Order verification for acknowledgement is mandatory as the first step while processing orders.
    Order Payment Mode – All orders will be created as Prepaid (a no info is provided by Amazon in Order details).

  6. Buffer Stocks: Amazon will keep buffers on their panel. The buffer stock could be 0, 1 or 2. This number may vary as per the seller’s performance. This is defined by Amazon only.
  7. Cancellation Sync: Cancellation sync to Uniware is present and if seller marks cancelled the order we update the status on the channel and no cancellation allowed after Invoice generation in Uniware.
  8. Return sync: No return sync is there, seller can take return manually by “putaway received return” process in Uniware. Click here
  9. Invoice/Label details: Label/Invoice file fetch from channel with details provided by Flex. Invoice and labels can be reprinted only for 30 days. However, for taxation requirements, data will be available in Uniware.

  10. For Invoice and label pdf sorting seller can use One Click Invoice & Label as ‘YES‘ on channel setting page.
  11. Shipping Labels are generated in ZPL format.
    In an ideal case, warehouse sites should be getting ZPL labels. Amazon supports multi item orders specific to warehouse sites only.

  12. Need to download and install QZ printer utility for printing ZPL labels. Use this file (Click Here) to setup for print invoice & label via a thermal printer.
