To enable Buy Box losses/wins and new product review monitoring we ask for additional Seller Central View & Edit permission for Business Reports, Sales Summary.
Information about your Buy Box share and product review count isn't available through MWS.
Why ask for Edit permission?
We ask for View & Edit permissions because Amazon doesn't provide the View only permission for the Business Reports, Sales Summary section. However, there is nothing to edit in this section, since it is intended for downloading reports.
How am I protected?
We understand that all information shared on these reports are 100% confidential. That's why you're protected by our policies https://www.bindwise.com/policies.
Additionally Amazon MWS Developer ToS applies to us as we're the official integration partner with Amazon (the last successfully passed audit was in Feb 2021).
💡 Thoughts Out Loud
Note that MWS provides even more sensitive commercial information.
Bindwise has been operating in the market since 2015. As a merchant, you know that Amazon merely closes/suspends accounts (even developer accounts) in case they misbehave and act against their TOS.
Bindwise is a technology company. We don't have an aspiration to sell on Amazon.
