Essentials for Linnworks & Amazon integration
Before integrating Amazon with Linnworks, you will need the following:

2. Click Add New, select Amazon and then Next
On the Channel Integration screen click the Add New button. Select Amazon from the list of Channels and click Next
3. Select your Amazon Site from the drop down list and enter your Amazon Merchant Name
On the Add Amazon Channel screen, select the Amazon Site you are registered from the drop down list. Add your Amazon Merchant Name in the Enter your Merchant Name field and click Next. If you are integrating an Amazon Webstore, check the Is Webstore box.

Linnworks will provide a link to log in to Amazon with a graphical guide below the link.
Click the link under the header called Go to Amazon. This will open up your browser and take you to the Amazon Sign in page, log in using your Amazon credentials.

Amazon will present you information such as Seller ID, AWS Access Key ID and Secret Key. Copy and paste this information into Linnworks. Once the information has been copied, click the finish button to complete the integration.
Avoiding automatic relisting
Linnworks is a tool compliant with Webinterpret. However, two conditions need to be met in order to prevent Linnworks from automatically relisting your International items (which may cause stock de-synchronization and duplicates that can potentially result in eBay policies violations).
To avoid issues related to this, please ensure to review the following:
Make sure your Linnworks software is updated
Follow the instructions on Linnworks' official website (specifically the Limit Update to CBT Site section)
