According to Statista report, Amazon is the most visited e-commerce platform in the US. Moreover, Amazon.com had almost 2.15 billion visits from all over the world in October 2019. In 2018 the company had 232.88 billion US dollars of net revenue. So this platform is one of the most important sale sources for e-commerce businesses. And if you want to reach more potential customers, you need to have an account there. But it’s hard to manage two platforms at the same time and keep all the information up-to-date.
Amasty offers an extension that allows you to integrate Amazon and Magento into one system and simplify the managing process. This plugin lets you synchronize products, orders, customer data and gather it in your Magento admin panel. So you will be able to manage both the sell channels from one place. As a result, you save on covering the cost of extra management required for products updating.
Amazon is one of the Big Four tech companies that stays near Google, Apple, and Facebook. It is one of the biggest multi-vendor marketplaces worldwide. (Note: learn the difference between dropshipping and marketplace) According to Statista, Amazon had around $232 billion. It’s 55 billion more than in 2017. But if it doesn't sound impressive, here are 7 reasons why you need to start selling your products on the Amazon marketplace.
Reason #1. Amazon is one of the biggest traffic sources for your business. BigCommerce sales guide says that in February 2017, 43% of all U.S. online retail sales were done on amazon.com. They forecast that this number will grow to half of all U.S. e-commerce sales by 2021.
Reason #2. According to Statista research, Amazon is the most popular online retailer in the USA. In December 2018, more than 205 million people visited this website every month. The second-place Walmart had only 130 million visitors for the same period.
Reason #3. Reach 105 million (it's around 51% of all Amazon users) Prime Customers. They are the most active part of Amazon users. According to the Morgan Stanley survey, Prime members spend 4 times more money than a usual user. An average prime member spends $2,486 in a year, comparing $544 for ordinary shoppers. 70% of respondents admit that free two-days delivery makes them more likely to buy.
Reason #4. 52% of users interviewed during the Raymond James study said that Amazon is the first place where they are looking for needed goods. So if you want to reach more potential customers, you definitely need to start your amazon shop.
Reason #5. Around 70% of Amazon users are making purchases on mobile devices, so it’s not wondering that Amazon mobile app is the most popular shopping app in the USA with 150.6 million active users. So, if you don’t want to lose mobile traffic and at the same time have no opportunity to develop your own application or PWA, Amazon is your choice.
Reason #6. Also, Amazon has good behavioral indicators. According to The Values Institute research, Amazon is the most trustworthy brand in the USA.

Reason #7. Benefit from fulfillment by Amazon. Merchants can store their goods right in Amazon warehouses. So they will take care of picking, packing, and shipping orders to customers as soon as possible. In 2017, the company had shipped over 5 billion items worldwide.

- Country of issue.
- First and last name.
- Date of birth.
- High-quality images of your ID front and back, even if the backside is blank.

Also, you have to pay a monthly fee with your credit card. It is $39.99/month.
And last but not least, you need to enter your U.S. bank account number.
Step 2. Register your brand.
When your seller account is approved, go to Amazon Brand Registry. This program provides you many tools to grow your brand on Amazon. For example:
- Additional brand protection;
- Extended marketing possibilities;
- 24/7 support, etc.
To apply to this program, you will need to enter the following information:

Once Amazone has approved your application, you will get access to extended content tools and brand possibilities, such as analytics, branded storefront, etc. Also, Amazon will protect your brand trademark and block fake sellers.
When you are ready with this part, you can finally go to the store creation.
Step 3. Design branded storefront.
For this, login to your Seller Central account and navigate to Stores > Manage Stores. Then choose your brand from the list and start by following Amazon prompts. You can choose one of the pre-made templates or create your own structure and design from scratch. You don’t need to have any coding skills for this.
Step 4. Configure product pages.
Upload your product data, fill in content, and create any pages you need to make your store user-friendly. Or you can export your products from your Magento 2 store in-bulk.
Step 5. Submit and review your pages.
Use a preview tool to check if you have any mistakes on your pages, and when you are ready, submit them to Amazon review.
