How to sell on Amazon with Shopify

In the past, integrating a Shopify store with Amazon was as simple as clicking a button in the admin dashboard. However, on September 27, 2021, Shopify announced that it would no longer support Amazon as a sales channel. This means that beginning then, merchants were no longer able to connect their Amazon stores to the Shopify dashboard.
