FAQ

Q: Why can't I log into SellerCloud? (I am getting an error that my password is incorrect)

A: Check that you are logging into the correct URL. Most clients are not on the www.sellercloud.com server. If you are unsure of you server's URL contact SellerCloud Support.

Q: Why can't I post to Amazon? I am getting a response that the request is throttled.

A: Amazon sets an API limit where they only allow you to send limited amount of requests during a certain time period (typically 30 separate MWS calls or 250 Items simultaneously) before throttling your request. Use the Launch Products to Amazon option on the Manage Inventory page. For more information see  http://www.amazonsellersupportblog.com/2011/01/understanding-throttling-in-amazon-mws.html

Q: Why is SellerCloud so slow? Even navigating from page to page takes a long time.

A: Your server may be in the middle of getting an update. Updates usually complete in 20 - 30 minutes.

Q: Why is the my queued job taking so long to process?

A1: It could depend on how much data is being processed in the job. If the job status says "processing" the data is updating.

Q: Why can't I transfer data from QuickBridge to QuickBooks? System is throwing back error messages.

A1: QuickBooks must be up and running on the same computer as QuickBridge.

A2: You may not have access and permission to the QuickBridge the files. Read the Granting Permissions section on the Configuring QuickBooks wiki page. After granting the permissions, close and reopen both applications.

A3: On the initial transfer, you may have to run QuickBridge and QuickBooks as Administrator.  

Q: Why are the desktop applications - ShipBridge, ReceiveBridge, ImageBrige or QuickBridge - not working properly?

A: You may be using a version that is no longer compatible with SellerCloud, or you may be using a updated version without having been updated to the latest SellerCloud write. Contact SellerCloud Support to determine the correct version for you. 

Q: Why didn't my inventory update when an order came in? The time on the order says 7:00 PM, but my inventory in SellerCloud didn't update until 10:00 PM.

A: The time indicated on the order is the time the order was placed on the channel. However, the channel may not include that order in a feed to SellerCloud until a later time. This occurs more frequently with orders placed on Amazon. The actual time of the order creation in SellerCloud is indicated on the order history page. Look for the "Time of Order Original" and "Record Created On" rows.

The best option is enable the Pending Orders report. A pending report is a report Amazon sends of items that have been placed in shopping carts. Enable the "All Orders Report(Pending Orders)" option on the Amazon General Settings page. Make sure the client setting "Query Amazon Pending Orders before sending inventory update" is enabled (it should be by default).   

Q: Why am I not getting product info when I use the "Get Info from Amazon" action? Also, I sometimes cannot product info when adding the product through the Add via Amazon feature?

A: Amazon does not allow some products to be accessed via the Product Advertising API, which is the API used in the action Get Info from Amazon. and Add Product Via Amazon. Read more at http://docs.aws.amazon.com/AWSECommerceService/latest/DG/ErrorMessages.html

Q: Why does my listing have a quantity of zero when there is available quantity?

A: Check if the safety quantity meets or exceeds the available quantity. For example there is an available quantity of 5 and you have a safety quantity of 5 a quantity of zero will be sent to the channel.

Q: Why does my product have an "Inactive" status on Amazon when it has available inventory in Seller Central?  

A: Your product may have the misfortune of being part of a product line that requires "Certified Frustration-Free Packaging". Amazon will set such products to Inactive until the seller provides proof (forms and photos) that the item will be shipped with Frustration-Free Packaging.
