The Buy with Prime app for Shopify is now available to all merchants, opening up new opportunities for those who want to utilize Amazon’s fulfillment network. This app simplifies the previously invite-only integration, enabling merchants to offer a seamless shopping experience for customers with a Prime membership. 

As a result, these shoppers can browse and purchase products on e-commerce websites beyond Amazon, using their Amazon account for checkout and enjoying the trusted fulfillment services offered by the platform.

Let’s talk

This collaboration between Amazon and Shopify began in August 2023, following the launch of Buy with Prime in April 2022. Prior to the partnership, implementing Buy with Prime on a Shopify site required manual modification of template code—a challenging process for merchants. 

With the introduction of the Shopify app, integration becomes more streamlined, allowing for catalog, promotions, and order syncing. Although some features are still missing, such as product reviews from Amazon and a shopping cart for multi-product checkout, the Buy with Prime app empowers a wider range of merchants to embrace this service.

This news – in concert with the very recent partnerships between Amazon and both Meta and Snapchat -show that the e-commerce giant isn’t just coasting into 2024.

Amazon has their hands firmly on the wheel and are making sure to stay at the forefront of omnichannel fulfillment and social commerce, two big levers driving e-commerce sales.
