SP-API Migration Hub

🚧

MWS will no longer be available for use by any developer starting January 1, 2024.

Migration from Amazon MWS (MWS) to Selling Partner API (SP-API)

All MWS applications must migrate to SP-API. The launch of SP-API represents the next generation API for programmatic access to Amazon features for sellers. All new development is occurring in SP-API, including several enhanced data protection and security features. This change ensures developers are using the latest technology and features for the benefit of both selling partners and customers. We are focused on providing the necessary information, tools, and assistance needed to successfully migrate your app to SP-API.

📘

MWS developer types

Summary of changes

We have announced two migration due dates within 2023 that will affect MWS private applications. This section contains details about these due dates.

Amazon MWS Orders, Reports, Merchant Fulfillment (MFN), and Products sections

Effective July 31, 2023, all private developed applications that are using the following Amazon MWS sections, must migrate to the Selling Partner API (SP-API):

  • Orders
  • Reports
  • Merchant Fulfillment (MFN)
  • Products

Selling partners using the Amazon MWS Products section must migrate to the Selling Partner API for Catalog Items and Selling Partner API for Listings Items.

The Selling Partner API for Catalog Items v0 operations will also be deprecated on September 30, 2022.

🚧

Deadline

Starting July 31, 2023, private applications that have not migrated will be unable to successfully call these sections in Amazon MWS.

Restricted Data Tokens (RDT)

Effective July 31, 2023, all developers whose SP-API applications have Direct-to-Consumer Fulfillment, Tax, Shipping, or Reports use cases must use the new Restricted Data Token (RDT) via the Tokens API to make a successful API call for some operations.

RDTs are a new access protocol for some operations and report types in the Orders, MFN, Shipping, and Reports sections. Refer to the Amazon MWS to SP-API Migration Guide for more information.

The Selling Partner API for tokens provides a secure way to access a customer's personally identifiable information (PII). You can call the Tokens API to get a Restricted Data Token for one or more restricted resources that you specify. The RDT authorizes subsequent calls to restricted operations that correspond to the restricted resources that you specified.

For more information, see the Tokens API Use Case Guide.
