Trying to import from amazon i keep getting.... whoops. there was an error. authorization failed, please try again.

Since January, my Bonanza listings that had been imported from Amazon suddenly weren’t syncing correctly. I’ve sold maybe 7 items since then, and all of them had to be canceled and refunded because they sold on Amazon long ago.

I got fed up with that happening, so I deleted my entire Bonanza inventory and then re-imported from eBay and then tried doing so from Amazon as well. Unfortunately, I keep getting the “Whoops. There was an error. Authorization failed, please try again.”

Can anyone please help guide me as to how to get my 3740 Amazon items back onto Bonanza and for sale again?
