Troubles using the Amazon MWS API

Hello togehter,

i hope that i am right here in the "Amazon Underground" forum and that someone can help me. The main forum for MWS seams to be very bugy. I can't even use basic functions like login, post... Therefore i choosed to post my problem here.

So what's my problem? I have troubles using the Amazon MWS API.

I have written a PHP Exporter that is submitting three kind of feeds:

  1. Products-Feed (for basic product data)
  2. Inventory-Feed (for quantity)
  3. Product-Images-Feed (for the main image)

Feed 2 and 3 doesn't work, because no products are available, because Feed 1 doesn't processed correctly. I get a error message like „...can't find a product with the SKU ..“. That's absolutely comprehensible.

But the main problem is when i'm trying to submit my product feed i get the following error message from the report:

Error Message:

XML Parsing Error at Line 22, Column 26: cvc-complex-type.2.4.a: Invalid content was found starting with element 'StandardProductID'. One of '{PromoTag, DiscoveryData, ProductData, ShippedByFreight, EnhancedImageURL, Amazon-Vendor-Only

What's my goal:

I want to provide my products in the german category „Handy accessories > Sim Cards“

Here is an Example from other providers:

https://www.amazon.de/s/ref=sr_nr_n_1?fst=as%3Aoff&rh=n%3A179473031%2Ck%3Ahandytarif&keywords=handytarif&ie=UTF8&qid=1489838226&rnid=1703609031

Below you can find some details of my product feed request.

FeedSubmissionId:

50136017243

XML-Request (messages in xml are shorten because of message-limitation. Also i have mask my product details and the merchant identifier):

I just checked and the forum works pretty well for me. Regardless, we do not offer support for MWS here; I'd suggest posting on their forum here or even getting in touch directly with the team here.
