Amazon integration setup with Lightspeed Retail

Getting Started 

This tutorial assumes you have already signed-up for the following services and have an active user login and password for the following 3 items.

A) Lightspeed Retail Point of Sale

If you do not have Lightspeed Retail Point of Sale, please contact Lightspeed at 866-932-1801. You should have a login for Lightspeed Retail here.

B) Hyperspace (with the Amazon Module activated and connected to your Lightspeed Retail POS).

You should have a login for Hyperspace here. If you already use Hyperspace but are unsure if your account has the Amazon module activated, login to Hyperspace and go to your Account settings.

C) Amazon Seller Central

Lastly, you will need to sign-up for an Amazon Seller Central account.

Once you have all 3 of these you are ready to integrate your Lightspeed Retail Point of Sale with your Amazon Store.

 

Accessing your API Key from Amazon

The first step to getting started is to access your API Keys from Amazon so you can copy and paste them into Hyperspace. This will enable Hyperspace to communicate with Amazon. It’s as simple as copying and pasting a string of numbers from one page to the other.

Click on the link below:

Once logged in you will see a screen similar to the one below:

Login to your Hyperspace Account and navigate to your Account Settings: Amazon Settings at the top right corner (green arrow).
