Amazon by Codisto makes it easy to set separate pricing values for your products based on the pricing values in your Shopify catalog.

With Amazon by Codisto, you can apply different pricing rules to products individually or in filtered groups, or maintain one consistent pricing rule across all of your products.

Setting Pricing Rules

Each pricing rule is made up of a combination of some, or all, of the following:

Operator: This is the type of pricing rule that you will use to determine your Amazon price and can be chosen from a drop-down list of options.

  • Shopify Store Price: Syncs the Amazon Price exactly to your Shopify price for a product.
  • % Increase/Decrease: Sets the Amazon Price to the Shopify price plus or minus a set percentage.
  • $ Increase/Decrease: Sets the Amazon Price to the Shopify price plus or minus a specified dollar value. 
  • Fixed Price: Sets the Amazon Price to a constant value that you manually enter.

Input: Some operators need to be combined with a numerical input value, for example, for the "% Increase" operator, the Amazon Price will be equal to the Shopify price for a product plus the percentage amount you enter in the "Input" field.

Rounding: You can choose to round your Amazon Price after the operator and input have been calculated, or leave it, by choosing from the drop-down list of options.

Result: In Single Edit and Bulk Edit listing modes, the "Result" is a preview of the price that will appear on your amazon listing for a product after the above calculations are made.

You can apply pricing rules to products individually, in filtered groups or in bulk across your entire catalog using Bulk Edit Mode, or to individual products using Single Edit Mode.

You can also map to pricing values stored in custom fields in your Shopify catalog, or, if you are using a third-party pricing tool for Amazon or simply want to keep the current pricing values for your products on Amazon without them being synced to your Shopify price, you can turn pricing sync off completely. 

Examples of Pricing Rules

The below table shows examples of how combining operators, input values and rounding will determine the Amazon price (result) based on the Shopify Price. For more information on the individual operators and how they work, see below.

Shopify Price Operator Input Rounding Result
$100 Shopify Store Price - None $100
$100 % Increase 10 Nearest 0.99 $109.99
$100 % Decrease 10 Nearest 0.99 $89.99
$100 $ Increase 5 None $105
$100 $ Decrease 5 None $95
$100 Fixed Price $90 None $90

Shopify Store Price

If you set the Amazon Price operator to "Shopify Store Price" for a product, the Amazon Price for will be synced to the pricing value for that product in your Shopify catalog exactly. Any changes to the price in Shopify will be instantly reflected on your Amazon listing.

Example: If you are selling a pair of headphones on Shopify for $10, and set the Amazon Price for the headphones to "Shopify Store Price", the price on Amazon will be $10. Later, if you change the price in Shopify for the headphones to $15, the price on Amazon will also change to $15.

Percentage Increase/Decrease

If you set the Amazon Price operator to "% Increase", the price on the Amazon listing for that product will be equal to the Shopify price for that product, plus the percentage amount you enter in the input field. Any time you change the price in Shopify, the Amazon Price will be recalculated based on the new Shopify price.

Example: If you are selling a pair of headphones on Shopify for $10, and set the Amazon Price to "% Increase" and enter "10" in the value field, the price on Amazon will be $11 ($10 + 10%).

Later, if you change the price in Shopify for the headphones to $15, the price on Amazon will be adjusted to $16.50 ($15 + 10%).

If you set the Amazon Price to "% Decrease", the price on the Amazon listing for that product will be equal to the Shopify price for that product, minus the percentage amount you enter in the input field. Any time you change the price in Shopify, the Amazon Price will be recalculated based on the new Shopify price.

Example: If you are selling a pair of headphones on Shopify for $10, and set the Amazon Price to "% Decrease" and enter "10" in the value field, the price on Amazon will be $9 ($10 - 10%).

Later, if you change the price in Shopify for the headphones to $15, the price on Amazon will be adjusted to $13.50 ($15 - 10%).

$ Increase/Decrease

If you set the Amazon Price operator to "$ Increase", the price on the Amazon listing for that product will be equal to the Shopify price for that product, plus the dollar amount you enter in the input field. Any time you change the price in Shopify, the Amazon Price will be recalculated based on the new Shopify price.

Example: If you are selling a pair of headphones on Shopify for $10, and set the Amazon Price to "$ Increase" and enter "2" in the value field, the price on Amazon will be $12 ($10 + $2).

Later, if you change the price in Shopify for the headphones to $15, the price on Amazon will be adjusted to $17 ($15 + $2).

If you set the Amazon Price operator to "$ Decrease", the price on the Amazon listing for that product will be equal to the Shopify price for that product, minus the dollar amount you enter in the input field. Any time you change the price in Shopify, the Amazon Price will be recalculated based on the new Shopify price.

Example: If you are selling a pair of headphones on Shopify for $10, and set the Amazon Price to "$ Decrease" and enter "2" in the value field, the price on Amazon will be $8 ($10 - $2).

Later, if you change the price in Shopify for the headphones to $15, the price on Amazon will be adjusted to $13 ($15 - $2).

Note: If you are using a store currency that is not in $ (dollars), the input value will increase/decrease the Amazon by price by whichever currency you are selling in.

Fixed Price

You can manually set a fixed value for the Amazon Price for a product by setting the Amazon Price operator to "Fixed Price" and entering a numerical value in the input field. The value you enter will be the Amazon Price on the listing and will stay the same even if you change the price in your Shopify catalog.

Example: If you are selling a pair of headphones on Shopify for $10, and set the Amazon Price to "Fixed Price" and enter "$12" in the value field, the price on Amazon will be $12. Later, if you change the price in Shopify for the headphones to $15, the price on Amazon will remain unchanged at $12. 

Mapping Pricing to a Custom Field in Shopify

If you have pricing values stored in custom fields in Shopify, you can map those fields using Attribute Mapping.

Simply navigate to the Listings View and select Attribute Mapping, then use the drop-down menu to select the field where the pricing values you wish to use are stored, and save your changes.pricing2.png

The pricing value for all of your active products will now be synced to the values in that field. 

Turning Pricing Sync Off

In some cases, you may want to disable pricing sync completely if you:

  1. Are using a third-party pricing tool to manage your Amazon pricing.
  2. Want to keep your current pricing values on Amazon as they are so that any changes to your prices in Shopify are not synced to your Amazon prices.
  3. Want to manage your Amazon pricing directly from Amazon Seller Central.

You can turn pricing sync off using Attribute Mapping Mode.

Simply navigate to the Listings View and select Attribute Mapping, then untick the checkbox for "Keep prices in sync from Shopify to Amazon" in the Amazon Price section and save your changes.

This will turn off pricing sync for all of your Amazon products. Pricing sync can not not be turned off for individual products or groups of products.

Any further changes made to the pricing for your Shopify products will no longer be synced to your Amazon listings. 

If you want to make changes to your Amazon pricing, you will need to do it directly through Amazon Seller Central, or through your third-party Amazon pricing tool (if you are using one).
