If you have a Marketplace in Amazon, with Holded you can synchronise and manage all your orders automatically to achieve unified management. Once they have been imported into your Holded account, from Holded you can convert these orders into invoices or delivery notes in just one click.
Holded products will be related to your Amazon sales via SKU (Stock Keeping Unit) automatically. In this way everything that is imported from Amazon can modify the stock of products that are already registered in Holded. Please note: The SKU in Amazon must match the SKU in your Holded account.
