Probably old news right now, but Amazon is shutting down their webstore service as of this year. Who knows the PR version of why they did this, but the real reason is because the service was horrible. It allowed you to build a webstore that looked straight out of the early days of the internet. Just gorgeous.

So what to do?! Come on over to Shopify. How bad Amazon’s product was, is how good Shopify’s is. We don’t get paid by Shopify to say this, and really have little skin in the game. But we’ve looked at Magento, Shopify and BigCommerce. Magento just has too many details to worry about, and BigCommerce is very good, a close second to Shopify for sure. But we chose to go with Shopify.
Plus, with the ByteStand app you can now pull in your FBA inventory with a couple clicks and 10 minutes of coffee drinking. It’s super easy.
If you’ve ever wondered how to make Amazon and Shopify work together, this podcast will answer all your questions. Literally all of them.

Several areas are currently quarantined and Amazon has temporarily halted inbound shipments for non-essential products due to COVID-19. Naturally, a lot of people are freaking out. But you don’t have to be one of them.
