How to connect Shopify to Amazon

Connecting your Shopify store to Amazon can expand your reach to a broader audience and increase your sales potential by leveraging the massive customer base of the Amazon marketplace. Integrating Shopify with Amazon allows you to sync your product listings, inventory, and orders seamlessly between both platforms. Here's how to connect Shopify to Amazon:

1. Access Shopify Admin:

Log in to your Shopify admin dashboard using your credentials.

2. Navigate to Apps:

From the Shopify admin, click on "Apps" in the left-hand sidebar to access the Shopify App Store.

3. Search for Amazon Integration Apps:

In the Shopify App Store, search for Amazon integration apps that facilitate connecting your Shopify store to Amazon. Popular Amazon integration apps include Amazon Marketplace, Codisto, and ByteStand.

4. Install Preferred App:

Choose an Amazon integration app that meets your requirements and click on the "Add app" or "Install app" button to install it on your Shopify store.

5. Connect Amazon Account:

Follow the app's installation instructions to connect your Amazon seller account to your Shopify store. You may need to authorize the app to access your Amazon seller account and grant permissions for managing products, orders, and inventory.

6. Sync Product Listings:

Once the app is connected to both Shopify and Amazon, initiate the product listing sync process. The app will import your Shopify product listings into the app's dashboard and prepare them for listing on Amazon.

7. Map Product Attributes:

Review and map product attributes such as titles, descriptions, images, and pricing to ensure they meet Amazon's requirements. Make any necessary adjustments or optimizations to align with Amazon's listing standards.

8. Set Up Inventory Management:

Configure inventory management settings to sync inventory levels between Shopify and Amazon. Specify rules for managing inventory, restocking thresholds, and handling out-of-stock scenarios.

9. Publish Listings to Amazon:

Once product listings are optimized and inventory management is set up, publish your Shopify listings to Amazon. The app will create new product listings on Amazon or match existing listings based on product identifiers.

Additional Considerations

  • Amazon Category Approval: Some product categories on Amazon may require approval before you can list products for sale. Ensure that your products comply with Amazon's category requirements and apply for approval if necessary.
  • Product Compliance: Adhere to Amazon's product listing policies, including guidelines for product images, descriptions, and fulfillment methods. Non-compliant listings may be removed or subject to penalties by Amazon.
  • Amazon FBA Integration: If you use Fulfillment by Amazon (FBA), consider integrating your Shopify store with Amazon's FBA service for streamlined order fulfillment and shipping logistics.
