STEP 4: Tell Us Your Business Addresses
If your only presence in a state is with Amazon FBA, then you should put the Amazon FBA warehouse’s address in the location details section. We’ve created a sweet guide to help you find the location of each Amazon warehouse.

This part is super simple, scroll down to “Connect Your Store” and click on the big “Amazon” logo. Follow the instructions to connect to your Amazon account. Once you’re connected, hit the “back” button, scroll down, and click “Finished” on the connected apps page.
STEP 6: Validate Your Transaction Information
It’s essential this part happens correctly, so you’ll want to do some spot checks for accuracy. To do this, click the “View Your Orders” button and search for several random orders make sure they came in. You can also look at the total number of orders imported and make sure that it matches up with the number of orders in your Seller Central account. Note: It can take several hours to import all of your orders if you have years worth. If you have trouble during the import process or any setup part of the setup process, feel free to call our support team! They’re delightful and ready to help!

From there, just give us your signature and banking information, and we’ll take care of the rest. The AutoFile team may reach out to you to confirm set-up before the filing process begins.
STEP 8: Celebrate – You’re All Done (Wahoo!)

You’ll want to come in before each filing period to check and make sure that orders are coming in correctly, but besides that you’re good to go!
