How to Renew Software Application Authorization that is About to Expire on Amazon Seller Central

There are many third-party services that can be utilized to increase sales on Amazon. These third-party services often require access to the Amazon Web Services (AWS) of your account. This is usually done during the initial setup of the service. However, the authorization granted has a time limit and is set expire every year. This is why you will often receive a message from certain third-party services asking to renew their software application authorization to your account.

To renew authorization, follow these steps:

#1 – Log into Admin account on Seller Central and hover your cursor over “Settings”, then click on “User Permissions”

#2 – Scroll down to “Third Party Developer and Apps” and click “Visit Manage Your Apps”

#5 – The “Authorization Date” next to the third-party service that you renewed will update with the current date as confirmation that the renewal has been submitted. The new expiration date will be a year later.


And that is all you need to do to renew the software application authorization for any third-party service who you have granted access to your account.

I was fortunate to be part of MAG's first batch of its Advertising Internship Program. The timing was perfect for me as I was looking for an opportunity to learn more about Amazon PPC and at the same time to have hands-on training to work on accounts.Β Β 


When I started my internship, I listed down the things I wanted to learn. And I am happy to say that I've ticked all the boxes! My most favorite was "Optimization Using Bulk Files”. Bulk files and I, we did not get along at first, it was so scary seeing all those data! But I had a great mentor who guided me along the way. He patiently taught me step by step on how to process the data. He was very enthusiastic in answering all of my questions. He supported me until I gained the confidence in uploading my first, second, third (and so on) bulk uploads.Β 


The biggest advantage in working with MAG (and I must say one thing that I always look forward to every week) is its Weekly Ads Training. Every week, we discuss various topics about PPC. Interns/Ads Specialists/Ads Managers, we all share knowledge, information, and updates about PPC. During our discussions, we exchange ideas and feedback. It became an avenue not just to learn a skill, but also to clear any vague or ambiguous PPC topics.Β 


For me, the biggest disadvantage is the work schedule. As an Intern, I have to follow EST timing. The time difference from my location was only 8 hours, but being a morning person, I really struggled to keep myself awake. But if you are a night owl, then this will not be a problem for you.


So if you are considering joining the MAG Advertising Internship Program, my advice to you is to take action - APPLY NOW! The knowledge that you will gain and the skill that you will develop from this program will be invaluable. And who knows? From being an Intern, you might be the next one to be promoted as Jr. Ads Specialist!Β
