Why Amazon Vendor Central EDI Integration is important for an Amazon Seller?

Amazon vendor central is one of the two seller spaces available on Amazon market place. Seller central is the place for a retailers that sells straight away their items to customers under their specific brand name, whereas, Amazon Vendor Central is place for suppliers that sell only to Amazon as their vendor. The products sold on Amazon Vendor Central are tagged as Amazon products and are further sold to the customers.

At vendor central Amazon is completely responsible for selling the goods and services to the consumers fulfilling orders.
