Children count is visible if the ASIN in the Alerts is a parent.

When setting up alerts for a specific ASIN, if it’s a parent it now displays a Child counter where you'll be able to set up children monitoring.

How to Create a Notification Channel

Set up how you wish to be notified when a change is detected.

1. Click on "Add Channel".

2. Add a name to the channel"

3. Click on the small "Add button" next to the Methods list.

There are 4 different notification methods to add: Email, SMS, Email Digest, and Zapier.

  • To set up an email notification: Enter your email address, wait for the verification code, and enter the code.

  • Setting up SMS has a similar procedure, just keep in mind that this service is only available for US and Canadian cell phone numbers.

  • The Email Digest allows you to group notifications into one email that can be sent to you in a pre-defined schedule.

  • The Zapier notification method allows you to automatically pull notifications from your Notification Channel and then sync them for example, to Google Sheets or any of the other applications that they support.

IMPORTANT: To set this up you will first need to complete the rest of your channel setup.

4. Use the ASIN selector, to select the ASINs to be notified for.

Please Note: If you do not set specific ASINs, all the ASINs will be processed by default.

5. The Seller Account filter allows you to limit which seller accounts you wish to receive notifications.

6. Use the events filter to select the events you wish to receive notifications on. Each type of event has different notifications. For example, A BuyBox can be lost or recovered, however, a Title can only change. This is completely customizable.

7. Also, you can set do not disturb hours where you can configure not to receive notifications. It’s important to mention, the system does not resend notifications after the do not disturb hours have ended.

8. Click on "Create Notification Channel" to save the settings.

Another reason for using this is the filters to allow you to have greater control over who receives which notification. For example, you can set it to have Hijacker alerts on seller account 1, 2, and 3 to be sent to VA 1; then create another channel and configure all other alerts to go to VA 2. The combinations are endless and are completely up to you.

Once the notification channel has been created you can now perform various actions that are listed in the menu icon, which are the 3 dots on the left.

  1. The test channel option allows you to send a fake notification to Email and/or SMS recipients so you can check how it works.

  2. Pause Channel to stop receiving messages.

  3. Edit channel as needed.

  4. Delete channel.
