Amazon MWS to SP-API Migration: How to Improve Your Integration with Amazon Marketplace

If you're currently using Amazon MWS API to manage your e-commerce business on Amazon Marketplace, you may be aware that support for MWS will end in March 2024. To continue managing your Amazon seller account, you'll need to make the switch to the new Amazon Selling Partner API (SP-API).

To ensure a smooth and successful transition from MWS to SP-API, it's essential to work with an experienced team of experts who can help you optimize your integration with Amazon Marketplace.

Benefits of SP-API for Amazon Marketplace

The new Amazon SP-API is designed to handle larger volumes of data, making it more scalable for businesses of all sizes. In addition, it provides greater security and more flexible access to data, allowing you to manage your seller account more effectively.

Moreover, SP-API provides access to new Amazon markets (such as Amazon Netherlands and Amazon Singapore) and features that were not available through MWS. For instance, you can now manage your Amazon advertising campaigns programmatically, create and update product listings, and perform various other seller-related tasks or create new listings, using the Item Assembler tool.

Potential Negative Points of Moving from MWS to SP-API

While SP-API offers many benefits, there are potential negative points to consider when moving from MWS to SP-API with an inexperienced team. These include:

Lack of knowledge: If your developers or team members lack experience with SP-API, they may struggle to understand the new API's functionality, which can lead to mistakes and errors, such as incorrect authentication, losing some items, pulling up incorrect balances, not up to date the price of the product. All this will negatively affect sales and business profits in the future.

Time-consuming: Migrating from MWS to SP-API can be a time-consuming process, especially if your team lacks experience with the new API. This can result in delays and missed deadlines.

Costly: If your team makes mistakes during the migration process, it can result in costly errors that can impact your bottom line. In addition, if you need to hire additional resources to complete the migration, it can add to the overall cost.

Moving from MWS to SP-API: How to Improve Your Integration with Amazon Marketplace

When moving from MWS to SP-API, following a thorough process is important to ensure a seamless transition. The first step is to analyze your existing MWS integration and identify the best approach to migrate to SP-API.

An experienced Webmagic team can work with you to improve your integration with Amazon Marketplace and ensure that you are taking advantage of all the new features and functionality provided by SP-API. We can help you migrate your existing MWS integration to SP-API, test it thoroughly to ensure everything is working correctly, and provide training on how to use the new API.

Why You Should Act Now

Moving from MWS to SP-API may seem like a daunting task, but it's essential to start planning your transition today to avoid any potential disruptions to your Amazon business. Waiting until the last minute could result in a loss of data or disruptions to your seller account, negatively impacting your e-commerce business on Amazon. Also, don’t forget that there are not so many high-quality developers on the market, and by the end of this year they are most likely to be at the peak of the season.
