Amazon is now one of the largest online stores on the web, attracting millions of buyers every day. Most sellers want to stop and enter Amazon and start selling or giving up on Amazon.
Shopify & Amazon integration
There are no tools that support listing products directly to Amazon, and most tools can only use existing ASINs in the Amazon catalog. If you want to remove the goods from Amazon and list the suppliers’ products to your store, Shopify is a good solution. And vice versa, you can also use Amazon as a marketing platform to promote your Shopify store for more traffic and sales.
Amazon has announced that it will work with Shopify, mainly because Shopify combines the advantages of Amazon and FBA. In addition, Shopify is also committed to integrating with Amazon, allowing users to sync their Shopify store with Amazon. “Like other sales alternatives, any Amazon product, customer and other data will be synchronized with Shopify.” Shopify will integrate Amazon’s login, payment and FBA services.

Since the purchase is on Amazon, the quantity is automatically reduced, so you will need to manually replenish the inventory.
Manage orders and returns on Shopify
Everything is ready, when you get an Amazon order, your order will be synced with the Shopify order and displayed in your Shopify background. Orders will be marked as Amazon so you can identify them. When you complete an Amazon order on Shopify, Shopify will automatically update to your Amazon store and mark the order as “Completed”.
