When you use Amazon VCS (VAT Calculation Service), Amazon will automatically create invoices and credit notes for the sales orders in your Amazon shop as well as calculate the correct VAT. Xentral will not generate any invoices for this shop, but will just convert the data you get from Amazon into a document that can be processed by accounting software. You can't upload this document to Amazon.
Once you activate Amazon VCS for your interface, you can't go back to the old implementation of Amazon VCS for this online shop anymore. Even though the fields for the old implementation are still displayed, they will not work anymore.
To configure Amazon VCS:
Go to your Amazon Seller Central and activate VCS.
In Xentral , go to Settings > Sell > Online shops and open your Amazon shop interface.
Select VCS (Download invoice data) for FBM and/ or FBA in the drop-down menus in the Invoice handling section.
From now on Xentral will regularly import the invoice data from Amazon.
The invoice data can't be changed! The data from Amazon will be considered as true, even though you might have different data in Xentral.
You are able to import previous data dating back up to three months. Enter the date from which you want to start the import in the Start of interface field. The import process does not happen in real-time and it might take a while to import all the data from Amazon. In particular, for the first-time import it can take several hours or up to a day depending on the amount of data.
