Overcome (Shopify-Amazon) seller challenges

A Shopify business, like any other, might like to expand its target groups and bring in more buyers. Hence, better brand recognition leads to global selling.

But, there’s a downside to it! Seller challenges.

Integration and data syncing aren’t the only challenges to deal with. Discover below some of the Shopify-Amazon online retail limitations faced:

Heavy (marketplace) competition

Amazon is by far, the most accessible e-commerce platform, globally. With visits in billions, it’s a great medium to find more buyers. Hence, the marketplace also witnesses cut-throat competition every day.

A clean product information presentation, easy-to-understand visuals, and specific descriptions would help sellers stand out in the market.

Error detection

Any business, old or new, faces all sorts of errors and ecosystem fallacies while selling online. For instance, unclaimed inventory might be notified as,

{“errors”:”Unclaimed inventory”}

Such an inventory stock error goes undetected if the Shopify store has a slow or faulty marketplace integration solution. Unlike CedCommerce’s native app solution, Amazon by CedCommerce, which supports near-real-time updates and data sync.

FBM or FBA

Amazon sellers can either opt for in-house shipment services managed by Amazon (Fulfilled by Amazon) itself or choose to do it themselves. However, such sellers are just one ‘wrong decision’ away from a total business failure!

For instance, a home decor Shopify business (like Artisphany above) might make a mistake if it decides to use FBA services. A business type that deals with large product items might find it difficult to deliver such items, within a time frame of 2-3 days, as is claimed by Amazon. Hence, the venture might just bear extra expenses for late deliveries.

Does Shopify integrate with Amazon? Amazon by CedCommerce app supports all kinds of fulfillment models. Moreover, CedCommerce’s best industry experts with exceptional account managers, share practical and decisive strategies for a successful business.

Conclusion

Artiphany chose CedCommerce as its integration support, to bring in an advanced and unique app structure, for better sales. And also, to understand ‘the era of automation’.
