Describes the best practices to follow when you are registered to sell in multiple
If you are registered in multiple marketplaces, then you have multiple
MarketplaceId values associated with your
SellerId. These multiple MarketplaceId values
can be, for example, an Amazon seller account or a Checkout by Amazon
account, where those services are available. If you are in the Europe (EU) or North America
(NA) region, you can sell in multiple marketplaces if you have registered using a single,
unified seller account, and you will have multiple MarketplaceId values
associated with your account.
Not all sellers in North America (NA) have a North America Unified Account at
this time. For more information on unified accounts, see North America
Unified Account FAQ
Every seller has a default marketplace. The default marketplace is based on the country in
which you first registered as a seller. For example, if you used the DE Seller Central
website to register, your default marketplace would be DE and your default
MarketplaceId would be A1PA6795UKMFR9 (see the table below for seller
MarketplaceId values). For more information on selling in multiple
marketplaces, see Selling on
Amazon's North America Marketplaces.
For backwards compatibility, when no marketplace is specified, all marketplaces within the
default country locale are shown.
Note: You can use the Amazon MWS
Sellers API section to determine what
MarketplaceId values are associated with your
Using the MarketplaceIdList parameter
You specify what marketplaces you want a report to cover by supplying a list of
MarketplaceId values to the optional
MarketplaceIdList parameter when you call the
RequestReport operation. For example, an EU multiple-marketplace
seller could specify that a report should include information from both their FR and DE
marketplaces by specifying the MarketplaceIdList parameter as
Do not confuse this parameter with the Marketplace parameter; the
Marketplace parameter is no longer used for authentication and is
For EU and NA sellers, you do not need to use a specific country endpoint, such as
https://mws.amazonservices.de, to indicate what marketplace a report is for. EU and NA
sellers can obtain reports for a given EU or NA marketplace by specifying that
MarketplaceId when submitting a report request. For a list of
MarketplaceId values, see Amazon MWS endpoints and MarketplaceId values.
You can also specify a Checkout by Amazon
Behavior of reports when submitting multiple MarketplaceId
If you include multiple MarketplaceId values when submitting a
report request, report processing will have a more complex behavior. The following are
some general rules when submitting a report request with multiple
- Reports can vary, depending on the ReportType and
MarketplaceId values submitted. See below for information on how
a particular ReportType behaves when requested with multiple
- If more than one MarketplaceId value is submitted and one or more
of those MarketplaceId values fail validation, for whatever reason,
then Amazon MWS returns an error and the submission fails.
- If no MarketplaceId value is provided, reports that are not
Listings Reports show all marketplaces the seller is registered in. You must specify a
MarketplaceId value for Listings Reports.
- If a seller does not have a status of Active in a marketplace, only Settlement
Reports will be available for that marketplace. For example, if a seller's status in a
marketplace is Pending because they have not completed the registration process, that
seller would only be able to retrieve Settlement Reports.
- Note that Amazon MWS validates a report request before it
is queued for processing. A report request passes validation when it contains
appropriate MarketplaceId values for the
ReportType requested. Passing validation does not mean that the
report will be processed successfully.
Behavior of Listings Reports when submitting multiple
Reports in the "ReportType enumeration" topic can only provide information for
one marketplace per request.
Behavior of Order Reports when submitting multiple MarketplaceId
The flat file Order
Reports in the "ReportType enumeration" topic can be used with the
ShowSalesChannel parameter to show an additional column of sales
channel information. The following code shows how the
ReportOptions=ShowSalesChannel parameter is included in a report
Behavior of Order Tracking Reports when submitting multiple
Tracking Reports in the "ReportType enumeration" topic return orders from all of
the marketplaces that you are registered in even if you specify only a subset of the
marketplaces that you are registered in when you submit a report request.
Behavior of Settlement Reports when submitting multiple
Reports in the "ReportType enumeration" topic can be retrieved regardless of the
status of the seller in the marketplace. Settlement Reports will contain Amazon seller and
Checkout by Amazon (if applicable) settlement transactions.
