Profiles, Packages and Distribution Centers


Profile Information

  • Profiles have unique IDs across the ChannelAdvisor system.
  • Profile IDs are often required when creating data via API. See specific topics and requests for Conditional/Required data.
  • Most REST API authorization methods can be applied across multiple profiles, so single GET requests can retrieve data from all authorized profiles.
    • SOAP Authorization and SOAP API cannot be authorized for multiple profiles.
  • Collection of SiteAccounts available to uniquely identify different seller/marketplace accounts in profiles
    • About SiteAccountID
      • The SiteAccountID identifies the unique ChannelAdvisor representation of a seller's account name at a marketplace.
      • A profile may have multiple accounts at a single marketplace (i.e. eBay, Amazon) within the same locale, so this data helps positively identify a specific marketplace account.
      • See the page on Retrieving Site Account Information within a profile.
  • Collection of ShippingLabelPartnerAccounts available to uniquely identify seller/shipping label partner accounts in profiles
    • About ShippingLabelPartnerAccountID
      • ShippingLabelPartnerAccountID identifies the unique ChannelAdvisor representation of a seller's account with a shipping label partner.
      • A profile may have multiple accounts with a single shipping label partner (i.e. UPS, FedEx), so this data helps positively identify a specific account.
      • See the page on Retrieving Shipping Label Partner Account Information within a profile.
