Besides eBay, this option is also available for Shopify. Therefore, this article will inform you about the reasons to use the online shop. We will also show you how to set up your Shopify account and inform you about the Shopify costs. Finally, we share our own experiences with you.
Why you should connect Shopify with Amazon FBA

Connect Shopify with Amazon Seller Central
In addition to connecting via the Sellerboard software, you can also connect Shopify directly to Amazon Seller Central. Of course, you need a corresponding seller account on Amazon for this. To connect Shopify with Amazon FBA, you then need to call up this link. You then need to follow the instructions of the Amazon Marketplace Web Service. After that, press “Continue” so that you end up back at Shopify. Finally, you should edit the shipping settings and add the appropriate Amazon shipping costs. Billbee can also be configured perfectly with Shopify and Amazon. For more information on the individual features, such as accounting or inventory management, you can find the appropriate article here.
If you would like to test Shopify free of charge at first, you can use the test version. This offers you an introduction to the sales platform for 14 days. You can register for the test phase here. Apart from the free version, Shopify offers three different packages:
- Basic Shopify: $29 per month
- Shopify: $79 per month
- Advanced Shopify: $299 per month
In the cheapest offer, “Basic Shopify”, the basic functions are available. However, only two employees have access to the account and selling in multiple languages is not possible. In the variant for $79 per month, on the other hand, you can sell in two languages and provide log-in data for five employees. However, unlimited use of all benefits is only possible in the “Advanced Shopify” offer. There you can sell in up to five languages and create 15 staff accounts.
Alternative: eBay FBA Integration with Sellerboard
As an alternative to selling via Shopify, there is the option of using the eBay Connector from Sellerboard. The sales platform scores particularly well due to the huge number of users and you must pay comparatively little for it. Shipping takes place directly from your Amazon warehouse. This feature can increase your customer satisfaction immensely, as your goods are shipped at Prime speed. If you are interested in how the eBay FBA integration with Sellerboard works, you can find an overview of all the benefits as well as instructions in this article.
