- Decide on an ecommerce platform to use.
Because Shopify recently joined with Amazon, it would be excellent to use their ecommerce platform. Users can add Amazon as a sales channel on Shopify to make managing orders on both platforms easier.
- Promote the best items
For store owners who want to sell their products on Amazon, there are various qualifications and constraints.
You can create an Amazon store without approval if you’re in a niche like books, computer and video games, electronics, office supplies, and so on, according to Amazon’s list of qualified stores.
Make sure you’re not in any of these categories by looking at Amazon’s list of prohibited products. Hoverboards and risky goods are examples of these objects.
- Register as an Amazon seller
It’s best to have a professional account if you plan on selling a lot of things. You’ll be charged 0.99 cents each item sold if you use the individual selling plan, which can eat into your profit margins.
Keep in mind that you’ll need to provide competitive pricing and the occasional discount while still making enough money to reinvest in the company. So keep an eye on your margins. You pay a monthly membership as well as a few additional costs with a professional seller account.
You’ll want to sign up for Amazon Seller Central using your email address. After that, you’ll need to provide your name, email address, and password. You’ll then be asked to give additional information about your company, such as its address and tax information.
- Get your product category approved
As I previously stated, Amazon approval is required for certain genres and product kinds. Fashion, cosmetics, and jewellery are just a few of the prominent niches that require clearance before you can start selling on Amazon. Each category’s unique approval requirements can be found here.
- Create a Shopify account for your Amazon account.
Connect your Amazon account to your Shopify store once you’ve been approved and your account has been formed. Scroll down to ‘Sales Channels’ on the left panel of your Shopify account and click the Add button beside it.
A pop-up window will appear. The first item on the list should be Amazon. Select ‘Add Channel’ from the drop-down menu.
After that, click ‘Connect to Amazon.’
- Begin shipping from Amazon to Shopify as a dropshipper
See the left panel of Shopify for the Amazon sales channel connection. Select ‘Create Listing’ from the drop-down menu.
Then, select a product by clicking ‘Select Product.’ There are two possibilities available to you. If your company manufactures the item, you’ll need to obtain UPC codes. As a dropshipper, though, you’ll select the second option: ‘This product is manufactured by a different brand.’
Then, in order to become a seller for that SKU, you’ll need to look for it. Click ‘Select’ once you’ve located the product you want. Finally, you must click ‘Publish’ to complete the procedure.
- Use Shopify to keep track of inventory
Ascertain that Shopify keeps track of inventory levels. This ensures that when a consumer places an order on Amazon, the item is still available.
Make sure clients can’t order things that aren’t in stock; this can lead to negative feedback and extra customer support time you didn’t budget for.
- Begin publicising your Amazon store
Isn’t it true that if no one knows about your store, you won’t make any sales? The following step is to direct traffic to it.
Make sure to promote your store on all of your social media accounts. You can also build Amazon advertising to help attract new customers and increase sales.
