Moltin + Amazon/eBay/Facebook


#1

Hi,

Moltin is good alternative to traditional ecommerce platforms. I’m just wondering is there any architectural way to use it for Amazon products publishing and managing?

Moltin is used as database + API to keep all products, variation, get data, etc. So it’s mostly “read-only”.
I need to publish products from Moltin to Amazon seller account.

In this way I will have to make a middleware to get products data via API and publish to Amazon + make special admin for this middleware to map products.

Just thoughts. I would like to have all in one system, can’t figure out how to achieve it.

Hi @virulaine

This is a great question and something that several of our customers have tackled directly themselves with a small middleware microservice. Here’s a quick diagram to demonstrate how this could be achieved:

You could ofcourse introduce an admin interface on top of this to act as a control layer/mechanism if need be or potentially look at using flows (custom data) in the Moltin dashboard to tag/store information on individual products to control their status on Amazon (the middleware could then react appropriately based on these custom fields you set).

Thanks,
Adam
