    Update 08-30-17

    I've now downgraded my rating to one star. Shopify continues to send marketing emails about new functionality in the Amazon sales channel, but none of the "improvements" have made the app any more useable for my purposes. It's been nearly a year since release, and I still can't search my 2700+ Amazon listings to link them to my Shopify products. The developers seem only to focus on the ability to create new Amazon listings in Shopify, and that's the least important functionality for me as an Amazon Pro seller. I can do that with much greater granularity in Amazon. Creating an Amazon product in Shopify will still require substantial editing on Amazon due to the level of detail that's necessary for a successful Amazon product detail page. I already have thousands of product listings on Amazon which have been imported to Shopify, and I need to be able to link and edit them in Shopify. Currently, the only way to do that is to scroll through all 2700+ listings until I find the one I need. There's no way to search or sort my Amazon listings. The Amazon sales channel is useless to me. Shopify is a great platform, but the Amazon integration is a massive disappointment.

    Update 05-12-17

    The Shopify-Amazon sales channel has shown few meaningful improvements since the release. The app is now showing that I have approximately 2700 linkable products on Amazon, but there's still no search functionality to find a specific product. If I want to link one of my Amazon products to the matching Shopify product, I have to scroll through page after page after page to get to it, and with 2700 products, that's simply not an option. The Shopify-Amazon connection continues to be a disappointment.

    Revision 2-5-17

    Unfortunately, I've decided my initial review (below) was too optimistic, and I've revised it down to two stars. The app has been out over a month, and you still can't link all your Amazon listings because the linking page only displays 5 listings. When you link one, it will be replaced with another one, but once you get to 5 listings that you don't want to link, you can't view any more than those 5, so the app becomes useless. The support team has stated that have no idea when this will be resolved. Based on past experience, I expected better from Shopify. The app is not ready for prime time, even in beta.

    Initial Review

    I like what I see so far. The feature I'm most excited about is the ability to link listings for seller-fulfilled products on Amazon and Shopify so that you can keep your inventory in sync based on sales on both sites. I'm slowly establishing those links so that I can monitor and learn the process and avoid any surprises.

    Inventory syncing is huge for me, and if that feature functions well, I'll be happy. The app lets you create new products on Shopify then send them to Amazon, but I haven't tried that because I prefer to create my listings on Amazon first since they require much more detail. Duplicating a listing on Shopify is a simple cut-and-paste process that takes less than a minute.

    To keep inventory in sync, you have to switch from processing orders on Amazon Seller Central to processing them on Shopify. That's changed my workflow, but I'm getting used to it, and in some ways, I prefer it. Seller-fulfilled Amazon orders now show up in Shopify orders. I use Stamps.com to batch import all those orders, print packing slips and USPS labels, and then the tracking numbers post back to both Shopify and Amazon. The postback seems to occur faster than when I was batch importing from Amazon.

    I use repricing software on Amazon, not on Shopify, and I'm not certain yet how that will work. You can set a price in the Amazon app on Shopify, and it will appear on Amazon. I'm waiting to see what happens when that price is adjusted on Amazon by the repricer. Will the Amazon app on Shopify set it back to the original price on the next sync or will it leave it alone until I make a revision on Shopify?

    Overall, I think this is a great start, and given that it's still in beta, I'm excited about future updates. Most of the multi-channel solutions are too expensive for the size of my business, and I'd be paying for features I don't need. Ever since I opened the Shopify store after Amazon WebStore shut down, I've been searching for a simple solution to keep my seller-fulfilled inventory in sync between the two sites, and I think Shopify's Amazon app will be just what I need.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    Well, it works - mostly. If you only list products in the clothing category this app will allow you to push them to Amazon and will track Amazon orders in Shopify.
    But that's where the fun ends. Many aspects of this app make it feel like it wasn't thoroughly tested with real products. A few examples:
    1. No ability to search/filter products already pushed to Amazon.
    2. No ability to mass update product variants. If you have a shirt with 5 sizes and 6 colors, that's 30 variants. If you want to increase the price of all variants by $1, you'll have to scroll through all of them and do it manually. If you have 500 products you want to edit, be prepared to spend weeks on that. This is also true for other variables, such as production time.
    3. No support for GTIN exemption. Even though I have the exemption from Amazon, Shopify will not attempt to push over a listing without a UPC.
    4. No logs or useful error messages. Some of my products have been synchronizing for weeks now. A few have failed. All I have is a status symbol and if I want to find out what's going on I have to write to the support team.
    5. No option to deactivate some variants and later reactivate them
    6. No option to re-link an Amazon product to a different product in Shopify.

    All that being said, there have been a few updates recently to make this channel better. one of the notable examples are that it now automatically uses the images associated with your products/variants, which saves a lot of time and clicks. If they keep improving it I'll come back to increase my score.
