Since the launch in May this year of the Magento Amazon Sales Channel Extension in the US, Canada and Mexico, there has been strong adoption from Magento merchants. Hundreds of brands have downloaded the extension and are now managing over 200K product listings on Amazon. Magento report that the gross merchandise volume has doubled month over month, and the number of sellers with product listings on Amazon has also increased close to 20% month over month as well.
Now at MagentoLive Europe 2019, Adobe have announced the Magento Amazon Sales Channel Extension for Amazon UK. It aims to remove barriers to entry for merchants trying to gain a foothold on Amazon by allowing them to quickly integrate their catalogue, establish a bi-directional data flow and start managing listings from their Magento admin.
By seamlessly integrating their Magento store with multiple Amazon accounts and regions, merchants can make their Magento Admin the central hub for all their critical Amazon marketplace activities, thereby reducing data silos, removing operational friction, and eliminating additional integration costs.
Support for additional European territories (Germany, France, Italy, Spain) will be coming next year. It’s also worth noting that regardless of the Magento merchant’s location, they’re able to utilize the Magento Amazon Sales Channel Extension to list their products in the Amazon UK Marketplace. This already holds true for the other territories where the Amazon Sales Channel extension is already available, including the US, Canada and Mexico.
