Requirements for the Amazon sales channel

Before you start using the Amazon sales channel, make sure that you meet the eligibility requirements. If you're eligible, then you can activate the sales channel in your Shopify admin.

Adding the Amazon sales channel in Shopify is free, but you'll need an Amazon Professional Seller account to use it. You'll be charged a monthly fee by Amazon, plus a referral fee based on your product's category.If you have any questions about selling fees, then contact Amazon Support.

Eligibility requirements

  • You have a Professional Seller account on Amazon Seller Central, with selling on Amazon.com or Amazon.ca enabled. Amazon charges a monthly subscription and fees for selling.
  • You sell in USD (for Amazon.com) or in CAD (for Amazon.ca). You can only use the Amazon sales channel with the region that matches your store currency on Shopify.
  • Your return policy is as good or better than the Amazon return policy.

Getting approved to sell in a category

You might need to be approved to sell in the category that fits your products. You can only create listings by using the Amazon sales channel for products in these categories:

  • Clothing, Shoes & Jewelry
  • Arts, Crafts & Sewing
  • Home & Kitchen
  • Patio, Lawn & Garden
  • Sport & Outdoors
  • Health & Household
  • Toys & Games

You can still create new listings for products in other categories directly in Amazon Seller Central, and then link them to Shopify.
