Amazon provides details for everything you will need to get messages exchanged properly with the company. Take advantage of the documentation.

No, you are entitled to have a third-party integrator configure your entire EDI setup on your behalf. Amazon provides user management controls in Vendor Central to allow you to invite your integrators onto the portal with just the necessary rights: “EDI Self Service Setup” (access to all EDI configurations but no access to your account information, for example).
Amazon can be contacted through vendor central directly: “Contact Us” form at the top of each Vendor Central Page > Topic “EDI integration” – SLA response within 24h. In our experience, they’re very reactive.
