According to Shopify press release, the company will now provide merchants with tools and services to help customers grow their online business and easily integrate Amazon offerings such as Login and Pay with Amazon, Fulfilment by Amazon and Selling on Amazon.
“Both Amazon and Shopify are leaders in ecommerce so it’s a natural fit that we would enable our retailers to seamlessly run their businesses across either platform,” said Harley Finkelstein, Shopify’s Chief Platform Officer.
“Many of Shopify’s existing 175,000+ merchants already use Amazon as a sales channel, and this will bridge the gap between our two companies, with just a few simple steps,” he added.
Shopify boast of making it easier for online businesses to sell on both Amazon and other channels using the company’s platform.
The company supports channels include an online store, point of sale system, and buy buttons on social platforms.
It has made it easy for merchants to access the following tools and services:
Migration of Amazon Webstores:
Amazon Webstore sellers can now seamlessly migrate their businesses to a Shopify account, with no interruption to their online businesses. Webstore sellers can select any Shopify plan, starting at $29/month, and receive a 30-day free trial.
The company also provides support to assist in the store migrations. Webstore sellers can start the migration process or learn more by signing up for Shopify via amazon.shopify.com/webstore.
Login and Pay with Amazon:
Merchants can enable Amazon’s payment gateway in the U.S. This gives consumers the ability to login and pay using their Amazon credentials. As a consumer’s shipping and payment information is stored with Amazon, they can quickly and securely checkout on desktop or mobile.
Fulfilment by Amazon:
Merchants can ship products sold on their websites using inventory stored in Amazon’s fulfilment centers.
