Inventory Mapping allows you to map a Linnworks stock item to a live listing, so Linnworks can accurately adjust the listing stock levels. Most Mapping screens work by communicating with the channel, to get a live feed of your active listings, allowing you to view them in Linnworks, and map them appropriately.
When mapping Amazon Webstore inventory, Linnworks cannot download a live feed like other channels. This is a restriction put in place by the way Amazon Webstore is built. Instead, you will need to download an Inventory file, and upload that file into Linnworks, so a representation of your listings can be mapped with your Linnworks stock items.
