Any ideas when the Shopify to Amazon(sell your products on Amazon) will be ready? Nothing from them and I have a client where they have that as a requirement. They were using the Amazon Webstore product that is shutting down in July. I see the Amazon has teamed up with Shopify to migrate the data, but that’s a 1 time deal and it doesn’t push any new product data up do Amazon.
Reduced costs. eCommerce businesses benefit from significantly lower running costs. As there’s no need to hire sales staff or maintain a physical storefront, the major eCommerce costs go to warehousing and product storage. And those running a dropshipping business enjoy even lower upfront investment requirements. As merchants are able to save on operational costs, they can offer better deals and discounts to their customers.

Business-to-administration (B2A) refers to transactions conducted online between companies and public administration or government bodies.

We are showing monthly costs for yearly subscriptions. A domain name costs extra (starting at $14 per year for a .com), but can be added through Shopify or any external registrar. If you can, it’s recommendable to use Shopify’s own payment gateway as this will save you additional charges. It’s currently only available in the USA, Puerto Rico, Canada, the UK, Ireland, Australia, New Zealand, and Singapore. Please note that transaction fees won’t be charged for manual payment methods (cash on delivery, bank transfer etc.).

Thanks for the comment. We’ve found Shopify to be pretty transparent when it comes to credit card processing fees (something you have to pay everywhere) and transaction fees. If you’re finding the fees a bit much then you might want to check out BigCommerce, which doesn’t charge transaction fees at all!

Newly elected representative and social media lightning rod Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) sparked a round of controversy this weekend when she compared the potential cost of Medicare for All to the cost of a supposed “massive accounting fraud” totaling $21 trillion at the Pentagon. Referring to an article The Nation last week, Ocasio-Cortez said that an alleged $21 trillion worth of improper financial transactions at the Pentagon would be enough to pay for two-thirds of the $32 trillion bill for Medicare for All - with the latter number derived from an analysis of Bernie Sanders’ health care plan by Charles Blahous of the libertarian Mercatus Center back in August.
Most of these types of sales are automated. For example, a manufacturer might need a certain part for its assembly work. Before e-commerce, an individual would need to estimate how many parts would be needed over a specific period of time and order those parts in bulk. Now, such purchasing can be automated. Inventories are tracked electronically, and when numbers drop below a certain point, an order is submitted immediately to a supplier. Another part of the process that can be automated is price tracking.
Great article, Jeremy. I currently have a Shopify online store and for the most part like the ease of use and general functionality. However, I cannot find a way to create a separate section- think ‘members only’- with products and/or pricing that is not viewable by the general public. I’ve researched a lot of apps/plugins, but none seem to match my needs. Do you know how this can be done without creating an entirely separate store? Thanks in advance for your time and consideration.
