App does not work. If products are deleted from Shopify they don't get removed from Amazon.
only avaiable for US
I need to sell with Eur
Very confusing, but worked good for a few weeks syncing orders and inventory....however Amazon orders no longer transmit to Shopify and inventory no longer is deducted out of Shopify inventory when an item is sold on Amazon which is going to cause issues for sure.....Support on both sides is useless as no one understands the issue at hand
Absolutely useless for sellers outside the USA. We're UK based, there's no solution for us?!
Useless unless you are based in the. Apparently there is no international release date.
Come on Shopify team, you can do better than this!! Please??

I went through the entire process of setting up an Amazon Europe Seller Account only to find out that this App can only be linked with an Amazon America Seller Account. Yet nowhere on Shopify did I find any information that would suggest this fact.
My main reason to join Shopify was to sell via Amazon. I'm now stuck with an annual subscription to Shopify and an Amazon Europe Seller Account that I can't use!
Waste of time and money. Shopify must sync this App with Amazon Europe too, otherwise they'll continue to lose customers. Businesses do exist outside of America and we'd like to be included!
Other reviewers have made many valid points about the difficulties of integration, but, if your products should be listed on Amazon it is better that you do it as a Shopify channel. It is more work than it should be to sync products. However, once accomplished, it is much less work for day-to-day operations.
The best thing Shopify has done for me since I have had them because now our products actually sell. Amazon charging 30% of every transaction is the worst thing they have done for me and they don't tell you that Amazon throttles all new stores to 10 products a week for the first 4 weeks, so you think something is broke when it is not. It does the job, I wish that Shopify is an Amazon company that we would get a break on this 30% from Amazon if we use Shopify. So that instead of 30% they would take like 20% or something less. The app itself is a bit confusing but once you get the hang of it works awesome. The best advice I can give you is everything you do is delayed by 24 hours. So if you post something and you're waiting for something to happen.. just keep waiting because it takes up to 24 hours for this app to make changes, so it looks like it's broke when it's really not. Also, BE WARNED. Amazon puts a cap on all new sellers so if you're pushing out more than 10 new products a week trying to load up your product catalog forget about it. They only let you publish sync 10 new products week for the first 4 weeks of your Amazon store. I wish someone would have told me that, I spent hours thinking it was broken when in fact Amazon just throttles the publishing on all new stores to 10 new products a week.

We were thrilled when we heard that Shopify would be integrating with Amazon. But we have been sorely disappointed so far. It feels like a closed beta that is no where near ready to launch publicly.
Syncing is a nightmare, we've had a team of two people spend days on this already and we still aren't finished. Not only is the syncing process manual, there is no product lookup and the products seem to be in chronological order from the date you loaded them on Amazon. So good luck hitting "next page" a thousand times so you can go back and sync something you just added or missed on the first go round -there's no other way to get back to it.
Unlike all of the multi-channel inventory management tools we have subscribed to in the past, Shopify is incapable of allowing you to designate that you want to allow oversell/backorder on Shopify but do not want to allow oversell on Amazon.
Shopify does not allow you to export your "transfers" (incoming stock purchase orders) so if you use an inventory re-order planner have fun entering all of your PO's twice into separate systems.
We were stoked when we found out you can create a new Amazon listing by pushing from Shopify to Amazon, until we tried it. Yes, it is possible but I wouldn't call it a convenience or an improvement.
Getting our shipping system set back up after integrating was also a nightmare. We were able to shut down the duplicate orders and eventually set up new rules for packing lists, but it was onerous.
Pricing does not sync. If you update a price on Shopify you have to open several menu's to manually update the price for Amazon...or update the price manually on Amazon. And v. versa.
All in all, if you are subscribing to a multi-channel inventory management tool you will probably want to hold off until Shopify develops this integration further. It could be a godsend if executed correctly -fingers crossed for the future.
