Managing Inventory Across Multiple Ship Nodes

We’re excited to announce the launch of the new Inventory API that allows sellers to effortlessly maintain accurate product levels across multiple Ship Nodes. Sellers have added visibility into SKUs and their corresponding inventory counts to help improve fulfillment efficiency.

Securely Give Permissions to Solution Providers

Sellers should use Delegated Access Authorization to give solution providers access to manage items and orders without directly sharing their own API keys. You can create separate Client IDs and Client Secrets at a granular service level for each solution provider to maintain account security.

New Cancellation Reason Codes Available

As previously communicated, we updated our list of accepted cancellation reason codes in the Cancel Order Lines API on May 12. Review the table below for a full breakdown of the changes and make sure you update your systems with the new Cancel Order Lines Schema to avoid errors.

Auto Generated Tax Codes in Item Spec 4.2

Tax codes are now conveniently auto generated and assigned to items during the item setup process in Item Spec 4.2. Sellers can also use Item Spec 4.1 to override product tax codes that are incorrectly auto assigned.

API Analytics Enhancements

We’ve added a new search function in the API Error Details dashboard in the API Analytics page to help sellers quickly find and troubleshoot errors that occur during integration. Sellers can also download the error to view more detailed information on how to resolve the issue.

Inventory Report Available on Demand

Use the Create Report Request API to quickly download and review Inventory Reports on demand. The report shows individual rows for each Ship Node that holds inventory for that item to help with fulfillment visibility.
