Amazon Seller Central puts your products in front of tens of millions of Amazon shoppers to help you grow your business. The Amazon Seller Central/Grow integration enables you to visualize the data about your products in a clear and efficient way, which will help you make informed decisions about your sales.
NOTE: We are no longer actively supporting this integration as of March 20th, 2020. If you have previously authenticated this data source, it will still appear in the list of your data sources. We will not be improving this integration further. However, Amazon Seller Central is supported by a third-party ETL called Saras Analytics. To learn more, please reach out to our Grow Support Team.

Amazon Seller Central metrics have an option to “Use aggregation.” Checking this box affects the “Orders by Order Date” report. The “Use aggregation” box orders the data that comes in by the date and time it was updated.
I'm trying to pull in data going back several months, but it's not working or it's taking a long time.

Amazon has specific throttling limits. This is how they explain it in their documentation:
- Request quota: The number of requests that you can submit at one time without throttling. The request quota decreases with each request you submit, and increases at the restore rate. Requests are calculated for each Amazon seller account and Amazon MWS developer account pair.
- Restore rate (also called the recovery rate): The rate at which your request quota increases over time, up to the maximum request quota.
- Maximum request quota (also called the burst rate): The maximum size that the request quota can reach.
- Hourly request quota: The maximum number of requests you can submit per hour.
If you want to know more, we recommend reading their help article on throttling.
