How to Migrate your Amazon Webstore

If you’re one of of the several hundred stores that hosted their e-commerce site on the now defunct Amazon Webstore, you’re probably thinking “now what?”

The good news is you have 15 months to migrate your store to another e-commerce platform. Furthermore, there are quite a lot of options to choose from including Shopify, Bigcommerce, and Magento. We recommend switching as soon as possible to avoid any technical difficulties.

There are quite a few e-commerce platforms geared towards small to medium sized businesses. These solutions will make it fast and easy to export your theme and products. You’ll also enjoy a lot more plug and play features and fully loaded app stores.

Shopify and Bigcommerce are built for a merchant that desires a plug and play solution that is easy to work with. Here are some benefits:

  • There’s a free trial.
  • It’s geared towards a person that is non-technical as it has an easy to navigate dashboard and acts as a “plug and play” solution with hosting, security, payment, and ready to build pages all included.
  • 24/7 customer service is available.

On the other hand, if you’re looking to build out a completely new store from scratch, Magento is an open source platform that can help you do that. Magento is completely customizable to fit your specific e-commerce needs. This option will suit those that are heavily technical or want to hire an agency to build their e-commerce site for them.

Vantage is available on all three e-commerce platforms.

Do you currently host your store on Amazon Webstore? Where will you be migrating to?
