Editor's note: Amazon Business played a role in multiple fall user group conferences and it was obvious from the attendance of their sessions and the engagement at their booth that the Skyward community sees great value in this partnership. We hope this guest post will be of assistance to those who have not yet set up the Ecommerce integration.
