Send to Amazon Workflow Update

Amazon has announced that on September 1st, 2022, Send to Amazon will replace the Send/Replenish inventory workflow. The new Send to Amazon shipment flow is not compatible with 2D barcodes. However, based on the further information released, Send/Replenish workflow and 2D barcodes can still be used if shipments are created by a 3rd party app, via an API integration.

We have released shipment creation functionality to allow creation of shipments from the Wizard-Industries platform. That means you should be able to create shipments and complete them using Send/Replenish workflow, using 2D barcodes for box content even after September 1st, 2022.

Amazon has indicated, this will not be an indefinite solution, at some point in the future, Amazon will sunset the API integration as well. At this time, Amazon has not yet released any specs on the Send to Amazon API, so we have to assume that API sunset is still a few months away at the least.

Current customers on Premium and Enterprise plans can access the shipment creation workflow here. If you have any questions please contact us.

Amazon has indicated at some point in the future, everyone will be forced to use Send to Amazon. We have been exploring Send to Amazon and have a plans on how to optimize that workflow. We hope to get working on that in September, after we’re confident that our customers can continue to use the Send/Replenish via our integration past the September 1st deadline. Then we can focus on building and optimizing for Send to Amazon.
