Vendors on Amazon use the EDI interface (EDI = Electronic Data Interchange) which allows extracting order management data from Amazon Vendor Central, including processing purchase orders and invoices. EDI represents standardized communication with the Amazon Vendor Central and other sellers. Typically, your EDI provider will assist you in implementing your EDI connection. To ensure a successful and smooth connection, we recommend setting clear objectives and researching your needs, before committing to a 3rd party EDU provider.
Here’s how to set up your Amazon Vendor EDI Account:

  1. Within your Amazon Vendor Central, locate the section “EDI → Self Service Setup”
  2. Make sure to enable global settings to create a secure, encrypted connection for your data to pass through.
  3. Set up each individual EDI data exchange. Your EDI provider usually will assist you in testing and enabling each EDI message. Usually, you’ll start with Purchase Order (EDI 850) and end with Invoice (EDI 810).
