BigCommerce Amazon Integration: Benefits
Customize How Your Products Update
Customize how your products update on Amazon with this integration. We recommend smaller sellers to choose BigCommerce as the master of truth. In this scenario, the integration will send over all product information from BigCommerce directly to Amazon on a daily basis.
If you are a larger retailer, or already on Amazon, upload a custom catalog to Amazon and have the BigCommerce Amazon Integration sync only the price and quantity for more control over your listings.
Inventory Management Is Simple
Because Amazon has such a large market-share in the eCommerce space, they naturally have their own seller requirements. One of the major factors Amazon considers to keep your account active as a seller is the Pre-Fulfillment Cancel Rate.
Amazon requires a Pre-Fulfillment Cancel Rate of 2.5% or lower. If you do not meet this requirement, Amazon may choose to freeze your account, hold your funds from sales on Amazon, or, even worse, ban you from selling on Amazon.
If you sell on Amazon, it's very important that your inventory is correct so that you can continue to sell and earn revenue. If your incorrect inventory causes you to cancel an order, Amazon will take notice, so fix your inventory issues immediately.
With the BigCommerce Amazon Integration, inventory management is simply. Inventory auto-syncs to Amazon, so there's no need to worry about any issues.
When an order is placed in Amazon or BigCommerce that depletes the item’s inventory, the integration syncs this information with BigCommerce and Amazon.
The Set Up Process Takes Only Minutes
The Amazon BigCommerce Integration takes only minutes to integrate with any BigCommerce store. Simply go to the Channel Manager (yourstore.com/manage/channels) and select “Get Started!” under Amazon.
- Select your default currency as USD
- Select your default listing category
- Click “Get Started” to begin the Amazon integration. The process takes only minutes to setup and get your products up on Amazon.
With the BigCommerce Amazon Integration, a few minutes of your time could lead to a few million of in revenue. That said, we always recommend a thorough technical audit to recommend technologies and integrations that meet your specific business needs.
