Shopify teams with another online giant


Shortly after expanding its e-commerce partnership with Facebook, the cloud-based multichannel Shopify platform is teaming up with another online giant. Shopify has been selected as the preferred migration provider for Amazon Webstore, making it easier for online businesses to sell on both Amazon and other channels using Shopify.

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. Shopify will provide support to assist in the store migrations. Amazon will be shuttering the Webstore platform as part of the move.

In addition, Shopify sellers can enable Amazon’s payment gateway in the U.S. This gives consumers the ability to login and pay using their Amazon credentials. Retailers on Shopify can also ship products sold on their websites using inventory stored in Amazon’s fulfilment centers.

Amazon and Shopify will also work on integrations that will give Shopify merchants the ability to list products simultaneously on Shopify and through 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-plus merchants already use Amazon as a sales channel, and this will bridge the gap between our two companies, with just a few simple steps.”
