Shopify has proven itself to be a user- friendly platform to open an online store.
An e-commerce oriented website, Shopify aims at providing an online store to help you build yourself as a brand.
With the emergence of importer apps such as The Omni Importer-Amazon, updating product details as conveyed from marketplaces to the online stores has become convenient as –
- Importer apps provide a gateway to successful interaction between the marketplace and the online store.
- It saves you from manual upgrade and editing of product details which is just not feasible.
