Control Panel - Merchant Settings
 
This section lets you control whether Amazon only, third-party merchants or both types of items are featured in your store.

Merchant
This setting controls which merchant offers are featured on Category, Subcategory and Item pages.

All:
Recommended. All merchant offerings will be accessible (including Amazon and other merchants). You can fine-tune which item gets featured by using the Merchant Preference setting below. This option also gives you access to marketplace offers (when you set the Display Marketplace Links setting below to Yes).

Amazon:
On Category, Subcategory and Item pages, Amazon items will be featured. This option also gives you access to marketplace offers (when you set Display Marketplace Links to Yes). Note: Certain categories will be sparse if you select this option (e.g. Apparel, Jewelry, etc.) as Amazon relies on other merchants in most cases to supply these items.
Merchant Items This setting controls the types of Items that will be featured on Category, Subcategory and Item pages. Choices are All, New, Used, Refurbished and Collectible. Note You can override this setting at Category level.
Merchant Preference This setting controls the merchant offer preference of the Buy buttons on Category, Subcategory and Item pages. If the preferred offer isn't available, the lowest priced offer from the next Item type will be used in this order: New, Used, Collectible, Refurbished (depending on which Marketplace Items you select below).
Merchant Count On Item pages with selectable options such as Color, Size, etc., this setting is the maximum number of merchants you want offers displayed from.
Display Marketplace Links Whether you want to display the New/Used/Collectible/Refurbished links on category and item pages. These would include listings related to third-party merchants selling through Amazon. Note: Setting this to No greatly reduces items you'll have for sale in your store.
Marketplace Items These are the types of Items that will be available on marketplace listing pages (All, New, Used, Collectible and Refurbished).
