Amazon Offers

I have both an issue(bug?) and a bit of confusion today regarding the Amazon setup, maybe someone can help me out.

1.  When I checked the Amazon Offers last night I had over 17,000 products listed, most duplicates.  I ran an SQL statement to delete them all.  This morning I have 538 more.  I should have about 190 total products.
Is there a setting I messed up that is causing these to continue to download repeatedly and create new products?

2.  Why are Amazon ASIN offers tied to 'product offers' and not 'product items'?  Am I misunderstanding this?  Since an Amazon ASIN is tied to only 1 specific SKU, I am confused as to why a K9 product offer that may have many sku's (product items) of many different sizes, colors, and options would have the "Create on Amazon" option in the product offer setup page?

Re: Amazon Offers

(1) The Amazon module should be downloading every ASIN you have listed and mapping one or more identifiers based on the Seller SKU.  I'm not sure how it could create duplicates based on the fact that Amazon sends down everything in one shot.  How many items are listed on Amazon?

(2) The Amazon offers are mapped using the Seller SKU to the Product Offers in K9 to allow you to list items on Amazon with a Seller SKU matching a Product Offer identifier in K9 and automatically have the inventory mapped correctly.  It also allows a quick Amazon offer add from within the Product Offer update in K9.  So it's like this to allow you to map both single inventory offers as well as package deals easily based on having matching identifiers.

Re: Amazon Offers

I have about 190 items listed on Amazon.  As of this morning, I have 1,118 items (and growing) in my K9 Amazon Offers.

Re: Amazon Offers

We get that sometimes.

The one(s) that keep repeating have an illegal character, like a space or period, in the seller SKU.

Best just to use letters and numbers for the Seller SKU.

Re: Amazon Offers

Hmmm.  I wonder if it's am em-dash and not a standard dash.  Do you need an immediate fix for this, or are you able to change those SKUs on the Amazon side? I'm making a note now to look at this prior to releasing the next update.

Re: Amazon Offers

I do not need an immediate fix as I am still doing some setup.  What does "Review" mean in the System Status column of the Amazon Offers.  Most of the duplicates seem to have this as the entry.  Side note, I have not connected/ matched many of the listings as I am only now setting up the products in my transition from CCP8.  Also, eBay connector has no issues.

Re: Amazon Offers

'Review' means you should look at it and make sure it's set up properly because the system had to default something (the SKU in your case).  It's a flag so you know to look at it and either remove it, or make changes and update it, or simply update it without making changes (because it's OK).

FYI - if you match your SKUs to your K9 product offer identifiers (ecom_prod.id) everything will auto-match for you when synchronizing initially.  And we've just verified dashes are not going to work in those SKUs.  I am going to look into that as it should at least be noted somewhere, if not addressed in the code.
