A COMPREHENSIVE GUIDE ON HOW TO SUBMIT FITMENT DATA THROUGH DIRECT METHOD If you are thinking about adding fitment data on Amazon through the direct method then you need to be the fitment data provider. Once you utilize the Amazon’s Seller Central you initially need to create an account apart from the existing account. If you need to submit the data indirectly then you have to do it through a third party provider. As soon as the data is submitted through the Excel feeds the data flows through numerous systems. Eventually the information matches the product data present in the Amazon’s catalog. The tool that transfers the data is called as the Amazon Merchant Transport Utility AMTU. But once the data is received the individual wouldn’t be able to edit it in the system. He or she can only delete the fitment records from the auto parts fitment database. Do make a note that the fitment data wouldn’t match with the information for the given product. The decision to follow the direct or indirect method depends on the data provider. In case the data is not available from the sources mentioned above then Amazon would consider some other entities. Now let’s look at the different phases of adding fitment data to Amazon. Phase 1 Firstly you need to send an email to automotive‐dataprovideramazon.com with the details for providing the ACES data. To avoid confusion you can also attach a sample ACES file and state the organization’s name the brands and whether you are a manufacturer or the owner of the brand. After some time you may receive a response to make changes. If you are requested to do so then you need to revise the file according to the instructions. After the sample file is approved you would once again receive an email with the credentials. Make sure to store the username and password and don’t ever forget them. Phase 2 At the first instance you need to check the system. The computer must either be running on Windows 2000/ XP / Vista / Server / 7 / 2008. Besides it also feasible to transfer the data if the system is running on Mac OS X 10.5.2 or Linux. Afterwards you need to install the tool AMTU and create an account. In this case you need new credentials for getting the merchant ID the access Key ID Secret Key and a new account. If you are not aware about how the tools works then you need to research online. Now you need to send the ACES data by placing the file in the folder that’s present in the AMTU’s Document Transport directory. If you face any errors with certain records then you should review them at once rectify them and re-send the failed records. As the changes are observed you should continue sending the my fitment data file from the AMTU’s Document Transport Directory. Time and again you need to review the errors and look into the processing reports.

Finally you should take care that the products are properly mapped. Never over-map anything or else the fitment information would be related to the product. At the end of both the phases you should monitor the file transmission and resolve the data errors.
