General

You can create a Selling Format Policy by pressing Add Policy button in Amazon Integration > Configuration > Policy.

Provide a Policy Title which will allow you to identify it among other Policies.

Quantity

In this section you can provide preferences for quantity calculation to be displayed on Amazon.

Quantity

It determines the source for Amazon Item quantity calculation. There are several options you can select from:

  • Product Quantity - is a value you provided in the Magento Product Inventory.

  • Single Item - only one Item will be available on Amazon.
  • Custom Value - allows you to provide a value which should be displayed on Amazon.
  • Magento Attribute - allows you to select the Magento Attribute which contains the quantity value that should be displayed on Amazon.
Quantity Percentage

It sets the percentage for calculation of Items Quantity to be listed on Amazon basing on Product Quantity or Magento Attribute.

For example, if Quantity Percentage is set to 75% and the Product Quantity is 10, 7 Items will be available on Amazon.

Conditional Quantity

This option is only available when the Product Quantity or Magento Attribute is chosen. It allows to set a maximum and minimum number of Items to sell on Amazon.

  • Minimum Quantity to Be Listed - e.g. if you have 2 pieces in stock but set a min quantity to be listed of 5, Item will not be listed on Amazon. Otherwise, the item will be listed with quantity according to the settings in the Selling Format Policy.
  • Maximum Quantity to Be Listed - e.g. if you have 10 Items in stock but want to keep 2 Items back, set a maximum quantity of 8.

Price

Price

Allows you to set the source for the price value counting of Items listed on Amazon.

You can select from:

  • Product Price - the Item price on Amazon will be the same as Magento Product Price;
  • Special Price - the Item price on Amazon will be the same as Special Price of Magento Product;

If Special Price is not set or expired, the Product Price will be used instead. The table below demonstrates how it would work with different settings.

19/06$25$17$17
21/06$25$17$17
22/06$25N/A$25
  • Magento Attribute - a value specified in the attribute will be shown as an Amazon Item Price.

 

If you are going to list your Product on the Marketplaces with different Base Currency and the Price value is set to be taken from Magento Attribute with Price input type, you can enable the automatic Currency conversion.

Also, it is possible to specify Price Changes in a box next to Price selection.

  • Absolute figure - provide a value you want to increase (with + sign) or decrease (with - sign) Amazon Price for.
    For example, a Price is 10. In change box it is specified +2, the Price on Amazon will be 12. If in change box it is specified -4, the Price on Amazon will be 6.
  • Percentage - provide a percentage value you want to increase (with + sign) or decrease (with - sign) Amazon Price for.
    For example, a Price is 10. In change box it is specified +5%, the Price on Amazon will be 10.5. If in change box it is specified -5%, the Price on Amazon will be 9.5.
  • Currency rate - provide a value you want to increase Amazon Price for.
    For example, a Price is 10. In change box it is specified 1.21, the Price on Amazon will be 12.1.
Variation Price Source

This option is applicable only for Configurable and Bundle Magento Products. It determines where the price for Configurable and Bundle products options should be taken from:

  • Main Product – prices for variation options will be taken from the Main Product settings.
  • Associated Products – prices for variation options will be taken from Associated products settings.

Minimum Advertised Price

It is a practice of a manufacturer providing marketing funds to a retailer contingent on the retailer advertising an end customer price at or above a specified level.

The process of setting and calculating MAP is the same as common Selling Price calculation mechanism, but without an ability to set any Price Changes to the value (as on eBay Integration).

The Selling Price for your Product will not be displayed on the Product Detail Page or Offer Listing Page if it is less than the Minimum Advertised Price. The Customer only sees the Price you are selling the Item for if they add this Item to their Shopping Cart.

For example, you want to sell Boots manufactured by Factory 1. Factory 1 provides a Minimum Advertised Price for Boots equal 50 dollars. Your Price for that Boots is 30 dollars. Your Price is less than MAP, so a buyer cannot see your price until he adds Boots to his Shopping Cart.

You can select a value for Minimum Advertised Price from three sources:

  • Product Price;

  • Special Price;

  • Magento Attribute.

Sale Price

This option allows you to set the discounted Item Price value to be displayed on Amazon. There are several options you can choose from:

  • Product Price - a Sale Price of Amazon Item will be equal to Product Price provided in Magento;
  • Special Price - a Sale Price of Amazon Item will be equal to Special Price provided in Magento;
  • Magento Attribute - a Sale Price of Amazon Item will be equal to a value provided in Magento attribute.

If you select a Product Price or Magento Attribute option, you should specify Start Date and End Date of Sale Price. The Dates values can be taken from Magento Attributes or as Custom Values.

If the Sale Price value is the same as Special Price, Start Date and End Date of Sale Price are the same as Dates provided in Magento.

Note, after you select a source for Sale Price, Price Change box will be available.

Add VAT percentage

This option determines whether the VAT amount should be added to the Item Price.

So, how does it work? The mechanism is rather simple. The Price you set increased by the specified percent value.

For example, for the Item Price $10, the 19% of VAT is $1.9, so the Price on Amazon will be $11.9.

Note: No VAT rate value will be sent to Amazon. Only the Item's Price on Amazon will be increased.
