Having announced a deep integration with eBay, Shopify have now announced a similar integration with Amazon to make selling on marketplaces with Shopify even easier. They have announced the ability for US sellesr to create listings in seven new product categories directly from Shopify, and support for the Amazon Brand Registry.
New categories Shopify support on Amazon.com
Previously Shopify users could only list from their Shopify website to the Clothing and Accessories category, but they’ve now added support for: Health and Household; Beauty and Personal Care; Home and Kitchen; Patio and Garden; Sewing, Arts and Crafts; Sports and Outdoors; and Toys and Games.
Shopfiy and Amazon Brand Registry
if you’re Brand Registered on Amazon.com, you can submit Brand Registered listings from Shopify. Just add your Amazon registered brands in Shopify to easily create new listings and manage your existing listings.
Amazon Brand Registry doesn’t just protect makers and brand owners, setting yourself up as a brand owner also makes listing on Amazon even easier. For example, as an Amazon Brand Registered seller, you get full control of your listings and there’s no need for UPC/EAN codes. Now that this feature is live you can create Amazon.com Brand Registered listings without ever leaving Shopify.
There are no additional Shopify fees for selling on Amazon, but you will need an Amazon Professional Seller account with a subscription of $39.99 to use the Shopify Amazon integration, but then if you’re a business seller you probably already have a Pro Amazon account.
