You’ve probably heard by now that Amazon is closing its webstore in 2016 and is moving over its users to Shopify’s platform. And if you’re an Amazon or Shopify user, you’re probably trying to make sense out of this news and figure out how exactly it affects you! So we put together a short list of how this change affects Amazon and Shopify users.
- The partnership will allow you to use Amazon services such as login with Amazon, Pay with Amazon, and Fulfillment By Amazon. This means that you can take advantage of Amazon’s fulfillment centres in the U.S., Canada, U.K., Germany, France, Italy, Spain, and Japan to ship your products more quickly and easily around the world.
- You will also soon be able to access Amazon’s marketplace through the Amazon Sales Channel, which means that you’ll be able to sell your products on Amazon’s website! You can sign up here to get on the waitlist.
Amazon web store users:
- When you move your store from Amazon webstore to Shopify, you get an extended 30 day free trial on Shopify.
- Shopify has also put up a dedicated portal for helping you migrate to your products and customer data directly into your new Shopify store in just a few clicks.
