How to set up Automatic Invoice Uploading for Amazon European accounts

Modified on Wed, 02 Nov 2022 at 04:06 PM

M2E Pro offers automatic invoice uploading for all orders managed across Amazon European Marketplaces (UK, DE, IT, FR, ES, NL, BE). This feature should be enabled for each Amazon European account in your M2E Pro.


To do it, navigate to Amazon > Configuration > Accounts > Edit Account > Invoices & Shipments and select the option that suits you:

Upload Magento Invoices

You may choose to automatically upload Magento Invoice once it is created for the Magento order. In this case, we recommend keeping the Magento Invoice Creation option enabled to make M2E Pro create Magento Invoices automatically:



With this option enabled, Magento Credit Memo will also be sent to Amazon automatically once it is created.

 Note

There is a limitation on the automatic upload of Magento invoices to Amazon – no more than 50 invoices can be uploaded within 10 minutes. The reason for that is Amazon API's throttling limits.

 

Due to the nature of Amazon API operation, M2E Pro is unable to receive and check the results of the Magento invoices upload in a proper way. Please make sure to check for yourself whether your Magento invoices have been uploaded successfully.

 Tip

To view Invoices, navigate to your Seller Central. Then go to Your Orders and click Invoice underneath the order number.

Use VAT Calculation Service 

If you have VAT Calculation Service enabled in your Seller Central Account (it implies that Amazon calculates the VAT amount based on your VAT calculation settings), select the Use VAT Calculation Service option.


Here you may choose whether M2E Pro or Amazon should generate invoices:


To keep invoice generation on the Amazon side, select I want Amazon to generate VAT Invoices option.

If you select I will upload my own Invoices, M2E Pro will generate invoices on the basis of VAT calculations taken from the Channel. Once M2E Pro receives the VAT-related data, it will automatically upload the generated invoices to Amazon.


Invoices will be sent from ship-to locations with VAT registration numbers that you provided when registering for the VAT calculation service.

 Tip

To view VAT invoices, navigate to your Seller Central. Then go to Your Orders and click Invoice underneath the order number.

In case of order cancellation/refund, Amazon or M2E Pro (depending on the settings) will automatically create and upload Credit Notes to your Seller Central.
