Read some of Luxor's most common frequently asked questions from clients regarding Amazon Webstore platform Design and Development.
Do I need a merchant payment gateway account to sell on Webstore or Amazon?
No, one of the great things about Amazon is that they take care of the entire payment process and simply cut you a check or pay you in your desired manner. Signing up for a merchant account can take a lot of work and documents, plus a monthly fee from $30.00 usually; Amazon eliminates all of this.
How do Webstore orders get shipped?
Shipping is either done by you the seller, or by Amazon if you have FBA or Fulfillment by Amazon setup. The Webstore has a shipping table where sellers can build weight or price based shipping system calculation. It is then up to the seller how they ship it; however, unlike many eCommerce shopping carts there is no requirement for sellers to signup for a merchant shipping account with UPS or similar; for seller fulfilled orders it is the sellers choice how they wish to ship.
Does Fulfillment by Amazon work on Webstore orders?
Yes, inventory assigned to Fullfilment by Amazon that is ordered through Webstore will be treated similar to an order through Selling on Amazon, offering sellers full FBA support.
If I open a Webstore can I also sell my products on Amazon?
Yes, you can either sell just on Webstore, or, you can sell on both Webstore and Selling on Amazon (choice of most clients). When you list your products on both outlets you have two inventory control panels; however, those panels are linked and an update to one affects the other - meaning you only have to manage one inventory. This is one of THE biggest benefits of Webstore for sellers also interested in Selling on Amazon, or those currently doing so.
Does Amazon Webstore include a blog that I can write on?
No, by default the Webstore does not include a blog system, Amazon provides no support for blogs and their hosting server cannot host your blog; however, Luxor can custom develop a blog on the same domain name as your Webstore hosted on a private server.
Does Amazon Webstore provide a product feed to search engines?
Yes, Amazon Webstore does provide a product feed of your inventory to Google. You have the option to configure items like taxes for the product feed under a control panel.
Is Amazon Webstore optimized for search engines?
All Amazon Webstore Development services by Luxor incorporate an SEO friendly design; however, the Amazon Webstore system itself is also structured in the proper way to be search engine friendly in how it calculates product page URL's based on product names and so on.
