Service Bulletin‎ > ‎ EDI AS2 Certificate Change

posted Jun 14, 2010, 8:35 AM by Unknown user

Amazon's EDI AS2 certificate is set to expire on August 8th, 2010. We will be switching over to the new certificate completely for all vendors on August 8th, 2010. Please make sure that you have scheduled a time with to update your systems with the new Amazon public AS2 certificate BEFORE this date in order to avoid any unnecessary transmission decryption issues.

Prior to August 8th, we will be placing Amazon's new AS2 certificate on in the 'Resource Center'. Please do not switch to the new certificate prior to creating a case in Vendor Central using the 'Contact Us' feature and selecting 'EDI' as the Issue and 'Connectivity issue (AS2, FTP, VAN changes)' as the Sub-issue. You can use the subject line 'Amazon AS2 Certificate Change' in order to quickly route your case. Once you have created this case, we will then schedule your certificate switch.

To retrieve the new certificate, you must log in to Vendor Central ( and navigate to the 'Resource Center' to find a copy of the new AS2 certificate. Please make sure to grab the correctly named certificate (should expire in 2015) when preparing to change the certificate in your system. Please also make sure in advance that you have a Vendor Central account and that each person in your EDI team has access to it. If you do not have a Vendor Central account, please contact your business contact at Amazon (typically your buyer). For access only issues, please contact the administrator for the Vendor Central account in your company.

If you use a VAN and they have a direct AS2 connection to Amazon, your VAN will also need to update their system with the new certificate BEFORE the date shown above. Please be sure to contact your VAN and have them confirm that they have scheduled this change if needed.

Again, please make sure to schedule this change by creating a 'Contact Us' in Vendor Central, using the topic mentioned above before actually making the certificate change or your change will result in transmission issues.

Should you have any questions, please log into Vendor Central using this link, go to the 'Contact Us' link at the bottom of the page and select 'EDI' as the Issue and 'Connectivity issue (AS2, FTP, VAN changes)' as the sub-issue.
