Integrating Mailgun into your Amazon Seller Central account will allow you to send emails not only from Amazon but from your own domain as well. The integration between the two platforms allows the seller to make use of their own SMTP server while still being able to send emails via Amazon without having to create multiple accounts – essentially, it eliminates the need for another email address in order to send messages not through Amazon’s servers. The integration is achieved by authenticating your Mailgun account to your Seller Central account. Below are instructions on how to do just that:
1.. Log into your account at Amazon Seller Central . 2.. Go to Service Settings > Email Accounts . 3.. Under the Personal Email Address section, click Edit next to your primary email address and then click Next Step . 4.. A popup window will appear asking if you want to add an existing personal email address or create a new one. Click Create New Email Account . 5.. Enter your name and email address that would be displayed in the “from” field of any emails sent through your new account and then click Next Step . 6.. A popup window will appear asking for password confirmation and a description of the email account settings (optional. Once verified, click Next Step . 7.. Another popup window will appear saying that you’ve successfully added your new email address. Click Close Window . 8.. Log in again into your Seller Central account and go to Service Settings > Email Accounts . 9.. Go down the page until you see a section titled “Your Personal Email Addresses”; click the edit icon next to the address you just created. 10.. Scrpl down until you see SMTP Credentials , which should say Disabled by default; click Edit next to SMTP Credentials . 11.. The SMTP Server will be listed as mail-smtp.mailgun.org with port 587 . Click Save Changes . 12.. To authenticate your Mailgun account with your Seller Central account, copy the fplowing snippet of code and paste it into your terminal/command prompt (assuming your domain is example.com. curl -X POST -d 'username=YOUR MAILGUN USERNAME' -d 'password=YOUR MAILGUN PASSWORD' -d 'domain=YOUR DOMAIN' -d '[email protected] MAILGUN DOMAIN' -d '[email protected] MAILGUN DOMAIN' -d 'subject=SUBJECT OF MESSAGE' -d 'text=BODY OF MESSAGE' http://api.mailgun.net/v3/YOURDOMAIN/messages . In place of YOUR MAILGUN USERNAME , YOUR MAILGUN PASSWORD , YOUR DOMAIN , [email protected] MAILGUN DOMAIN , [email protected] MAILGUN DOMAIN , SUBJECT OF MESSAGE , BODY OF MESSAGE , put your own corresponding values based on what you filled out earlier in the steps above (e.g., username , password , example.com , [email protected] , “Test message” , “This is just a test” . Please note that the last part of line 8 may vary according to your own situation; just copy the appropriate line for your setup (with AUTHENTICATION TOKEN in place of YOUR AUTHENTICATION TOKEN . 13.. After you enter all pertinent information, copy the authentication token in the URL bar of your browser and paste it into the API Key box in the Mailgun panel under API Keys . 14.. Now when you go back to your Seller Central account, you should see a new option under Email Accounts called Send Test Message . Select it and enter the email address of one of your contacts who has registered an email address through Amazon (e.g., [email protected]. If everything works correctly, a notification should appear saying that the message has been sent successfully .Now you can start sending messages through either Amazon or Mailgun! Simply select from which email address (via Amazon or Mailgun. you would like to send a message from under Manage My Selling Account > Inbound Messages > Sending Emails . You can also access this function from any other page on Amazon by clicking My Account > Manage My Selling Account > Update Your Preferences > Inbound Messages > Sending Emails . Note that if you use Mailgun instead of Amazon, there will be no charge for receiving an email (as this cost is absorbed by Amazon. However, if you use Mailgun for sending emails instead of Amazon, recipients will be charged for receiving those messages as well as for reading them; however, this fee is cheaper than the one imposed by Amazon (15% vs 20%. Furthermore, sending emails via Mailgun is faster than sending via Amazon because there is no time taken for delivery by Amazon’s servers (it takes only 3-5 seconds versus 1-2 minutes); on top of that, there are no limitations on how many emails can be sent every day via Mailgun as opposed to Amazon which imposes a limit of 1000 emails per 24 hours (although it seems that there are ways around this limit . Please note that when sending messages via Mailgun, they must come from [email protected] , otherwise they would not be delivered correctly.With this integration, sellers can now reduce costs by eliminating need for a separate email account for sending messages not through Amazon’s servers as well as save time by avoiding having to wait for email delivery on Amazon’s end before they receive messages from their customers and prospects at their designated email addresses. Additionally, it allows them to maintain contrp over their brand image by keeping their own domain names rather than being required to use an @amazon.com email address every time they send an email; after all, reputations are built over time but can easily be lost in an instant! Finally, there is no need for them to change their current workflow if they already have an established workflow for sending emails from within their company or organization; if they aren’t already doing so, they can simply set up a scheduled task in Microsoft Exchange or Gmail as described here. http://docs.mailgun.com/using-mailgun-with-email-clients-and-servers/#gmail-exchange-outlook-2010-2007-etc .
