Are you ready to sell on Amazon? Let’s take a look at the criteria you should meet to be eligible.


Before selling on Amazon and further integrating it with Shopify, a seller must have:

Active APS Account

An Amazon Professional Seller account (APS) is identified as a legitimate merchant or brand that can freely scale products on Amazon. The account must be active and unsuspended.

APS account suspension might come from a breach of Amazon rules, regulations, and related policies.

Active Bank Account

It’s also mandatory to have an active bank account (domestic) that’ll receive all payments sent in by Amazon. A seller, with an international target audience, can also add another bank account, along with the former.

Monetary Unit and Marketplace

For error-free sales, list products on Amazon marketplaces with their currency (USD for US sellers). This ensures smooth transactions on both Shopify & Amazon by avoiding currency conversion headaches.

Returns and Exceptions

A return policy that follows Amazon guidelines, including product and shipment exceptions, is mandatory to choose before store integration. Amazon lets sellers choose the type of return and delivery strategies that suit their businesses.

Note: All Shopify sellers must connect their online stores with Amazon Seller Central via an Amazon payment account.


Why Link Shopify to Amazon?

Extensive Reach: With a staggering 2.7 billion monthly visitors from around the globe, Amazon offers sellers unmatched exposure. This translates to better brand awareness and product conversions.

Adapts to Buyer Trends: Customer-focused Amazon keeps a pulse on consumer behavior and adapts product displays accordingly. This ensures your brand stays relevant and aligns with current trends.

Strong Brand Loyalty: Amazon’s advanced search options and hassle-free return policies make it a one-stop shop for most customers, fostering high brand loyalty.

Automated and Effortless Selling Experience

The CedCommerce Amazon Shopify Channel simplifies the process of linking your Shopify store to the vast Amazon marketplace. Designed to cater to both basic and advanced needs, the app boasts a user-friendly interface with clearly defined sections that streamline your eCommerce operations.

Let’s explore these key sections in brief, accessible under the sales channel on your Shopify dashboard after selecting “CedCommerce Amazon Channel”:


Shopify Amazon business integration app Overview

The Overview page, as the name suggests, is a comprehensive dashboard that serves as your central command center for efficiently managing all essential operations related to your Amazon Shopify channel management.

From staying updated on the latest app features to tracking your subscription details, monitoring recent activities, managing local selling, overseeing product statuses, and handling Amazon orders, the Overview page provides you with a holistic and user-friendly interface to manage your Amazon integration seamlessly.

Some notable sections on this page include:

New Features: Access information regarding the app’s latest updates and enhancements. We understand the significance of keeping you informed so that you can take advantage of new features to enhance your Amazon integration experience.

Actions to be taken: Monitor the actions you can take for your pending shipments, failed orders, and product errors. The sooner you identify and address these issues, you can keep your selling process running smoothly.

Account Performance Metrics: Track your performance as a seller with the Valid Tracking Rate (VTR) and Order Defect Rate (ODR) in this section.

These metrics help identify areas for improvement to boost sales and avoid account suspension.

Shopify Amazon business integration app Listings

This section hosts the core functionality that equips you to seamlessly list and manage your Shopify products on the Amazon marketplace. Listing your products on Amazon through our app opens up new avenues for growth, sales, and brand exposure.

The Product Listing page in the CedCommerce Amazon Channel app gives you access to a range of operations that equip you to efficiently manage your Amazon listings. These operations enable accurate synchronization, streamlined inventory management, and effective updates.

Let’s discuss some of these operations:

Bulk Update: This process facilitates the bulk import or update of Shopify products into the app.

Amazon Lookup: This feature checks if your product barcodes are unique or if they already exist on Amazon. If a barcode is already available, the product becomes eligible for offer listing, i.e., sale. 

Sync Inventory: Synchronizes inventory levels between your Shopify store and Amazon listings. This ensures that stock availability remains accurate across platforms.

Sync Status: This action links existing Amazon listings with Shopify products imported into the app based on SKU and barcode. This ensures accurate synchronization and efficient inventory management.

Note: Under Amazon listings, existing sellers with a different SKU on Amazon (from Shopify), can use the manual listing to link that same product to their Shopify SKU. Such uniformity aims to reduce confusion and double entries.

From understanding the intricacies of different status codes to performing bulk operations and resolving any potential errors, the CedCommerce Amazon Channel has got you covered.

Moving on to the next, ‘Product Linking’.

Product Linking is a vital feature that aligns your Amazon and Shopify inventories. You can ensure that products on both platforms are accurately linked, allowing for efficient management and synchronization. This powerful tool empowers you to effortlessly connect your Shopify products with their corresponding listings on Amazon.

This translates to several key benefits:

Effortless Synchronization: Any changes you make to product information or stock levels in Shopify automatically reflect on Amazon (and vice versa).

Reduced Errors: Eliminate the risk of overselling or inaccurate stock counts caused by manual updates on separate platforms.

Time Saved: Focus on growing your business instead of tedious inventory management.

Peace of Mind: Gain confidence knowing your product information is always consistent across both platforms.

Now that you’ve mastered the art of product linking and conquered inventory sync, let’s explore the settings section which allows you to fine-tune your integration and personalize your selling experience.

Settings: Centralized Control for Seamless Operations

In addition to previous sections, even the settings section has key features you can utilize to optimize your workflow and maximize your Amazon sales potential. Think of it as your mission control center.

Here, you can efficiently connect multiple Amazon accounts with your Shopify store, streamlining your workflow and maximizing your sales potential.

This is where you can:

Manage Accounts: Effortlessly connect and manage regional Amazon accounts for a smoother selling experience.

Customize Product Details: Fine-tune important product details like inventory, pricing, and attribute mapping to ensure seamless data transfer between platforms.

Streamline Order Management: Control how orders are processed, fulfilled, and synchronized with cancellations and refunds for a frictionless experience.

Create Product Templates: Design and manage custom product templates for different categories, making product uploads a breeze.

This section also includes important functionalities, such as :

Multi-Account Support

You get to view all your regional Amazon accounts that are connected to your Shopify store. You can also connect more than two regional accounts for simpler selling.

Global Price Adjustment (GPA)

Acting as a currency converter, GPA lets sellers reflect similar product prices, on both platforms (Amazon and Shopify), irrespective of their regional differences. For instance, a seller can list products in Euros (€) on their Shopify store. With GPA, the same is converted into Dollars ($) on Amazon US. This feature further enables your sales on regional Amazon accounts.

Order Settings

  • Define a personalized order management strategy by configuring settings for shipments, cancellations, and refunds.

By fine-tuning these settings, you can guarantee smooth order fulfillment, timely deliveries, and efficient handling of any potential issues, ultimately creating a positive customer experience.

Product Templates

Shopify Amazon business integration app Product templates

Product Templates are a game-changer for managing product data across multiple listings. Think of them as blueprints for your product information, allowing for efficient bulk edits and updates.

How Templates Help:

Save Time: Eliminates repetitive tasks by pre-defining settings like inventory and pricing for all products assigned to the template.

Reduce Errors: Ensures consistency across listings by applying the same attributes and details effortlessly.

Boost Efficiency: Helps manage and update product data for numerous listings simultaneously, freeing up your time for other tasks.

The app excels in attribute mapping, a crucial step for seamless product uploads to Amazon. It allows you to effortlessly match your Shopify product attributes with their corresponding Amazon values. This ensures accurate data transfer and avoids potential listing issues.

Additionally, the app offers both default and custom templates. Default templates provide a starting point, while custom templates give you complete control over all aspects of your product data, including:

  • Inventory Settings (including stock levels, warehouse management)
  • Pricing Configuration (sync with Shopify, set custom values)
  • Product Details & Images (manage what gets uploaded to Amazon)
  • Value Mapping (advanced attribute matching for specific needs)

Overall, the CedCommerce Amazon Channel App’s Product Templates empower you to upload products to Amazon quickly, accurately, and efficiently, saving you time and minimizing errors.
