Amazon is one of the world’s greatest marketplaces that attracts more than 180 million visitors a month. You can list your products on Amazon right from your Store and thus expand the number of your potential customers and increase your revenue.
When you sell on Amazon, you can manage products and orders in one place—the store control panel. If you sync the stock between the two services, you may be safe that there won’t be overselling.
Ensure You Can Sell on Amazon
You can sell on Amazon.com if your store meets these criteria:
- Your store country is set to the USA.
You can check that in your store control panel, go to Settings → General → Store Profile, in the Company address section.
- USD is set as the store currency.
Since the Amazon US-Marketplace shows product prices in USD, you can upload products from your store only as long as you use US dollars in your catalog. To change the currency, in your store control panel go to Settings → Regional Settings → Currency.
- You do not sell handmade goods.
Amazon has a separate marketplace called Amazon Handmade. You can’t add product offers there using third-party services — you should create them directly in your Amazon Handmade account. You can try uploading them to the Amazon marketplace, yet there is a chance that Amazon will reject them.
Process Orders from Amazon
When your product is bought on Amazon, a new order will appear in your store control panel, go to My Sales → Orders.
To see how well you are doing on Amazon, go to your store control panel → Other Channels → Amazon. This page shows the total sales count and amount of orders coming from Amazon.
Click Manage Orders to see the list of Amazon orders on the Orders page. Here you can see more details: order ID on Amazon, ordered products, shipping address, and so on.
Can I sell on Amazon in other countries and currencies?
Yes, you can sell your products on other Amazon marketplaces in Canada, UK, Germany, Italy, etc. using the Codisto LINQ app from our App Market.
How much does it cost to sell on Amazon?
You can use the Codisto LINQ App (Third Party Store). Codisto plan is paid separately. The price varies from $29 to $99+ a month. You can take a 14-day trial for free to test how the app works.
On the Amazon side, you need to pay for the Professional Seller account ($39,99/month flat) plus additional selling fees. For more details, refer to Amazon pricing.
Can I sell handmade goods on Amazon?
Amazon has a separate marketplace for selling handmade goods called Amazon Handmade. They don’t allow product listing uploading via any third-party companies—you should upload products there directly from the Amazon account.
If you want to sell handmade goods on Amazon, consider these options:
- Try listing your handmade goods on the regular Amazon marketplace in an appropriate category. Be ready that there is a chance that Amazon won’t approve the upload;
- Upload products to Amazon Handmade manually, without connecting them to your store.
What happens if I connect an Amazon account where I have existing listings?
Your Amazon account will be linked to your store account. That won’t affect your existing listings in any way: they will remain in your Amazon account and they won’t be linked to your store products.
You can also create new listings from your store. They will be added to your Amazon account and these new listings can be synced with your catalog.
