New eCommerce Applications for Shopify and Amazon

Shopify users Will Grow With Their Amazon e-Commerce Partnership

Are you aware of the latest goings on? Shopify, an e-Commerce software developer, based in Canada, got a huge boost from e-commerce titan Amazon. Now Shopify users can sell their products on Amazon. On top of that, Amazon is telling its users their best move to send their stores to Shopify. It is a very high powered partnership. Put simply, Shopify is gaining momentum. Earlier in the year, social media giant Facebook announced that they were in talks with Shopify merchants to test a “Buy button” that will enable them to sell their products directly on Facebook. Twitter is also working on a similar system as well. But that’s a story for another time. What’s all this about selling Shopify products on Amazon? The initial negotiations of this plan between the two sales platforms began in 2015 but were not made public until very recently.eCommerce platform Shopify

This is a long-awaited merging of two of the world’s biggest digital marketplaces intended to connect Shopify’s large number of merchants with Amazon’s millions of potential customers to increases sales and create new audiences. This multi-channel approach to e-commerce is now easier than ever. You are now capable of adding Amazon as a sales channel into your digital storefront and create listings on Amazon out of existing products and fulfill any orders via the Shopify administration panel. The Shopify platform will also sync available inventory with all active sales channels at once. With both snapshots of your outlet’s top stock keeping units and shipping costs calculated across multiple channels, you can get a huge amount of information about your storefront’s performance. That said, there is one downside that will hopefully be only temporary.Shopify and Amazon like Big Online Business Step

At the moment, all a company can sell on Amazon via Shopify is items inside the Clothing and Accessories category on Amazon. Still, it is more than possible to create Amazon listing for other products straight on to the marketplace and then link them to your Shopify storefront. More good news holds that Shopify has made it clear that they would be adding the support of “Fulfillment by Amazon” which thousands of store owners were waiting for. Shopify’s chief platform officer, Harley Finkelstein, has said that most of Shopify’s over 175,000 merchants use Amazon as a sales channel, making it a natural fit for these railers to use Amazon payments. Experts admit that the capacity to work with other major players in the e-commerce industry, such as Amazon or Facebook, is a major reason for Shopify’s , growing popularity.

Spine Tutorials For eCommerce Themes by eCom Success Academy

If you will be using pure JavaScript ecommerce platform without using Hem or Node when building Spine applications, then the best guide for you is the TodoList one. It will take you through the process of building a basic CRUD application, which includes model persistence utilizing HTML5 Local Storage.

If you are using Hem and CoffeeScript, you should refer to the Contacts guide. It will take you through all of the necessary steps for building a comprehensive contacts manager, which includes search, Stacks and CRUD.

Example Applications

After you have become familiar with the guides, you might want to view Spine in action and look through some source code. I have found that this is one of the better ways of learning a new framework or language, particularly in terms of best practices.

There are a number of different example applications of Spine, like a contacts manager, a todo’s list or a chat room or other more advanced examples. (source: Spine eCom success academy plugins)

Screencasts

Screencasts are another good way to learn things. Spine so far has four screencasts. They are on topics ranging from infinite scroll to realtime sync and Rails integration. Please contact us if you have any suggestions for additional topics for screencasts.

It can be daunting to get started with a new library or framework. However, I am doing everything I can to ensure that your initial introduction to Spine is as straightforward as I can possibly make it.

There are three major ways that Spine can be used for Your eCommerce Stores:

For those people who aren’t ready to get into CoffeeScript, the best option is plain static JavaScript. Just download the JavaScript files, place them in your HTML and you are set. If you will be using this route, use the Getting Started with JavaScript guide. Bower can also be used for fetching Spine for you. Spine was for example used to build out these eCom success academy theme: ecomsuccessacademy.net – what is eCommerce?

Integrating into Rails using the spine-rails gem. Rails and Spine work very well together and the integration is seamless. Read the Rails guide and watch the screencast.

Using Hem, CoffeeScript and Node. Hem is a kind of JavaScript dependent manager that is used for Spine app. It sits on top of the nmp for managing all of your assets. It is the path of least resistance and I personally recommend this final approach. A directory structure is generated by the Spine app for your application, and it is served up to your users by Hem.

This guide covers the final approach, using Hem and Spine. However, as previously mentioned, if you are using Rails or not into CoffeeScript, then you might want to check out the other two approaches discussed.
