Icon.Amazon.png The Amazon module, located in the Integrations group, is an add-on module that can be installed from the Small.Plugin.png Plugin module. After installing the plugin, a new module is added that integrates with one or more Amazon MWS accounts. Amazon provides a service called Fulfilled By Amazon (FBA). FBA inventory is sent to an Amazon warehouse. When the item sells, Amazon handles the shipment of the item. The Small.Amazon.png Amazon module works with Amazon FBA by importing the order, and then automatically marking it as shipped in Fishbowl.
