Selling on Amazon

Hi Guys,

I understand you need to have a either a pro account or a checkout by amazon account to allow you to sell using M2E. I do not have a pro merchant account but do have a checkout by amazon account. My issue is when trying to setup my account, i press the get access data, i then select the option ‘I want to use an application to access my Amazon Seller Account with MWS.’ The details are already present, it connects and then says congratulations. I am then presented with my seller id – plus a few marketplace id and then the mws authorisation code.

When i place the id and codes in both boxes m2e pro tells me ‘M2E Pro was not able to get access to the Amazon Account. Reason: Account authorisation is failed. Please ensure Amazon account settings are correct’

Any ideas why?

Thanks in advance.

Hi Gladtosell,

The honest answer is I do not know, this would be one to ask M2E Pro. It would seem strange it would let you get so far in the config if it wasn’t but maybe there is something it is looking for that the Pro accounts have which the basic accounts don’t which is causing the error.

I’d double check with M2E and see what they say and then you will know whether it’s an Amazon issue or an M2E one.
