With an increased presence from digital giants such as Amazon and eBay in the online aftermarket parts space, many manufacturers and sellers are looking to capitalize on these platforms. But where there is an opportunity, there is often a challenge: in this case, how do you format, map, or update your wealth of parts data into the proper Amazon standard so that it can be readily leveraged? You have come to the right place. With decades of experience in data mapping across a variety of popular automotive standards, our experts can provide you with a robust solution to get your parts in front of customers quickly.
Vertical Development can assist in making sure your auto parts data is in the proper ACES (Aftermarket Catalog Exchange Standard) XML format. AmazonPartsFinder uses the ACES XML standard. ACES data can be transmitted to Amazon directly or indirectly. With the direct method, you use the Merchant Transport Utility (AMTU) on your system in order to transmit ACES data to Amazon. The indirect method involves a data service provider submitting the ACES data to Amazon on your behalf. In either case, Vertical Development is the right partner for you, providing the data management services necessary to deliver on-time and on-budget, allowing you to easily leverage this growing online channel.
