Connecting your Seller Central account with Jungle Scout will unlock additional features such as Sales Analytics, Inventory Manager, Marketing, and Listing Builder. This process is standard practice, completely safe, and okayed by Amazon!
Connecting your Amazon Seller Central Account
You can access the "Connect to Amazon" popup window in several ways; however, please keep in mind that, to complete this process, you need to have a Professional seller account (Individual seller accounts cannot be connected to Jungle Scout at this time):
- Click the Connect an Amazon Account button in Jungle Scout's top-right-hand corner. Alternatively, you can click your avatar to see this selection.
- You'll see the following popup window. Click 'Get Started!'
- On the next screen, select the region and primary marketplace of your Seller Central account (we currently support 15 Amazon stores in 3 different regions). Choose the correct option from the dropdown and click 'Next.'
- Give your account a nickname (it can be anything you want, the idea is to help you differentiate it from other Seller Central accounts in case you connect additional stores), and enter your Seller Central email (please make sure this is the same email address you have registered on Amazon), and click the Authenticate Account Connection button.
- Next, you'll see the Seller Central login screen. Enter your credentials to continue.
- As soon as you log in, you'll see a screen asking you to authorize Jungle Scout to access selling data on your behalf. Accept the Terms of Service by enabling the checkbox and clicking 'Confirm.'
That's it! You'll be taken back to Jungle Scout, where you'll receive a success message, and you'll be able to see your Seller Central details in the Amazon Settings screen:
