We’re defining Amazon storefront, explaining how to find storefronts on Amazon (as well as in the app), who can create an Amazon store, how to set up an Amazon store, and best practices for Amazon storefronts…
What is an Amazon Storefront? What is an Amazon Store?
Amazon Storefronts, also known as Amazon Stores and Amazon Brand Stores, give Amazon sellers an easy way to create a signature store to showcase and sell their products on Amazon. They provide customers with a personalized and engaging shopping experience – enabling them to browse lots of products quickly, efficiently, and in an environment that reflects the seller’s own brand identity.
With Amazon Stores sellers have access to in-depth analytics detailing the performance of their stores which allows them to tailor content, customize marketing messages, and refine the customer experience in order to increase conversions. Amazon Storefronts provide customers with a one-stop shop for shopping top-selling items directly from Amazon’s largest brands.
Amazon Brand Stores
For customers, another benefit of shopping from a branded Amazon storefront is the assurance that they are purchasing from the brand itself, and not a third party reseller.

Amazon Storefront Tabs
Storefront tabs are designed to enhance the customer shopping experience. For example, a skincare brand with a wide range of products might consider dividing up their families of products into tabs titled “dry skin”, “combination skin”, “oily skin”, and “sensitive skin” to help customers find the products that are best for them. Additionally, many brands implement a bestsellers page, an FAQ page, or an about the brand page.
