Why use Amazon MWS
Amazon MWS provides the following major features:
You can perform batch uploads of inventory, add products, check inventory levels, examine pricing information and perform other inventory management tasks.
Order management: You can download order information, obtain payment data, acknowledge orders and schedule reports.

For Professional selling partners who use Fulfilment by Amazon (FBA), Amazon MWS also allows you to:
Create dispatches to the Amazon fulfilment centres: You can automate the process for creating labels for units you dispatch to a fulfilment centre.
Check status of shipments to Amazon: You can check to see if your dispatch has reached a fulfilment centre and, if so, whether the dispatch has been processed.
Submit fulfilment orders: By integrating your system with Amazon MWS, you can enable customers to submit Multi-Channel fulfilment orders at any time. There is no lag time while you process or batch orders.
Track and manage outbound shipment requests: Once orders have left our fulfilment centres, you can track dispatches and keep customers aware of arrival times.
