Amazon approves 2,500 third-party apps to help sellers


Amazon now has more than 2,500 apps in its Seller Partner Appstore, formerly called the Amazon Seller Central Partner Network, and it has verified the apps, which are provided by third-party developers in 20 countries.

On Friday, Amazon posted an announcement on its Seller Central board advising sellers to review apps to help them grow their business:

“Now discover solutions to optimize listing, pricing and shipping, or automate other essential sales operations, from our selection of carefully controlled and continuously monitored third-party applications.

“The Selling Partners Appstore offers features like ‘Recommended for You’ which highlights apps that Selling Partners like you love.”

A presentation video on the Amazon app store suggests sellers check out tools that are “approved by Amazon,” “that seamlessly integrate with your sellers’ data,” to help with listings, automated pricing, shipping, analytics, and more.

Over 75% of sellers use third-party apps, Amazon revealed.
