Well, it looks like the discussions between Amazon and Shopify are bearing some fruit, as Amazon just released its native MCF app for Shopify.
Unlike Buy With Prime, MCF is just a 3PL and Amazon as a carrier. There is no Prime and no payment involved. So it acts like any other 3PL.
Because there’s a native app, it’s easy to integrate.
Ability to map your Shopify shipping methods to Amazon’s shipping options using a 1-1 mapping.
Ability to map your SKUs to Amazon SKUs. Unclear if you are adding SKUs all that time how easy this is to keep up with.
Some limitations that appear:
- Only for the US today. Only one inventory location is supported per item today.
