New Vendor Direct Fulfillment Dynamic Sandbox

The Selling Partner API dynamic sandbox environment allows you to test your applications without affecting production data or triggering real-world events. The dynamic sandbox routes requests to a sandbox backend that can return realistic responses based on the request parameters. By sending requests to the sandbox endpoints instead of the production endpoints, you can test standard workflows without impacting production data. For more information, see the new Vendor Direct Fulfillment Dynamic Sandbox Guide.

New Migration Guide for Vendor Retail Analytics Reports

In March, we announced new versions of four vendor retail analytics reports and a requirement to migrate to new versions of these reports by June 27, 2022. To assist with migration efforts, we released a new Vendor Retail Analytics Reports Migration Guide. This guide explains changes to the vendor retail analytics reports and provides steps for migration.
