Revealing "SKU does not exist in the Amazon.com catalog"
Got the following error with the SubmitFeed action in Amazon's Marketplace API:
This SKU does not exist in the Amazon.com catalog. Your inventory data was not processed. For reasons why, and help fixing this, see http://sellercentral.amazon.de/gp/errorcode/13013
The reason is self-explanatory, the product's sku is not listed in the catalog. I sent 1000 products to the API, of which only 100 were activated. So I expected 900 errors, but got only 200!
So, what's going on? Took me a while to find out:
The sku does not exist error only seems to occur on products for which you send a quantity value greater 0. Products with a quantity of 0 do not trigger the error.
Hope that helps someone saving some time on debugging.
