Cart Multichannel Management supports multiple accounts on the same marketplace. Two Amazon accounts? No sweat.
Many sellers operate on multiple accounts within the same marketplace. Some folks have two Amazon accounts; others have three or more on Walmart or eBay. Cart Multichannel Management supports connecting additional marketplace accounts (sometimes called "child accounts").
You are required to create a new Cart Multichannel Management account (which is free of charge if linked) and our Support team will then be able to link the two accounts together. You can then manage both (or more) accounts from your main login.
Here's how to ensure these are established correctly:
If you decide to add a second account we advise only having one Fulfillment Center within all of your Cart Multichannel Management accounts. Having more then one within any of your accounts could negatively impact this process.
Send a request for a new account to Cart Multichannel Management
Send an email to support (email@example.com) and request that your two logins be merged to the same account. We'll need the following details:
- An email address. (This address must be different from the email address used to set up your main account)
- Business Name
- Need quantities synced between your accounts? Let us know.
Once received, our team will merge your accounts and advise you when you can access both from the same login.
Once the Cart Multichannel Management accounts are linked, you will be able to access orders for both stores within the main account. You can then switch between the inventory and products via the settings drop down on the left hand side.
Verify if you need to have quantities synced between your accounts
If you have the same inventory across all of your seller accounts, Cart Multichannel Management can match the quantities between your accounts. The SKU's need to match between the sales channels but if they do match then Cart Multichannel Management can automatically manage the quantity across all channels. This is not established out-of-the-box so if you do need this functionality then please include it in your merge request.
Log into the secondary accounts, establish your integrations and general settings, then log back into your main account.
Once merged, you can move between the accounts freely and assess your inventory and your orders
You can select you email address on the left hand side and choose "Switch accounts" to move between your inventories. All orders will be routed to the main account.
Things to note
Please limit your SKU's to having one Fulfillment Center across your Cart Multichannel Management accounts it possible. If this severely impacts your workflow, we suggest reaching out to Cart Multichannel Management support for further assistance.
