Back in March, Amazon made an announcement that it could be shuttering its e-commerce platform next year, and because of this, the online marketplace has chosen Shopify as the preferred migration partner.
An announcement posted on Shopify’s blog on September 17th said that Amazon Webstore owners will be able to “seemlessly migrate” their Amazon store to the Shopify platform.
As Amazon’s preferred migration partner, we’ve worked closely with the Webstore team to make moving to Shopify simple. In a few steps, merchants can transfer their customer and product data — with zero downtime or service interruptions — and begin taking advantage of an extended 30-day free trial.
Amazon VP of Payments Patrick Gauthier said,
“Shopify exemplifies the value of simplicity in an increasingly complex world of commerce services. We are excited to work together with Shopify to create best of class solutions that help merchants integrate Amazon offerings.”
A dedicated migration page for store owners has been created by Shopify, and is launching three new Amazon integrations.
- Login and Pay with Amazon
- Fulfillment by Amazon
- Amazon Sales Channel
At this point, the sales channel integration isn’t available yet, but after it’s installation, it’ll let merchants list products directly on Amazon via Shopify.
