What is an Amazon Brand Store?

Amazon Brand Stores are customizable pages where brands showcase their catalog of products on the Amazon marketplace. Also known as Storefronts, Brand Stores are only available to businesses that have been approved for Brand Registry.

Brands select a template and upload files with the ‘Store Builder’ tool. The idea is to give browsing shoppers an overview of everything you have to offer in one place, similar to your own ecommerce website.

Tips for making a spectacular Amazon Storefront

  • Lead with colorful images and a brief brand story, especially if you sell 'boutique' or unique types of products
  • Try to utilize the background video option – it will automatically capture the viewer's attention and doesn't require a click
  • Limit the amount of text – the average Amazon shopper is a lazy reader. Icons or text overlay on images can be way more effective than a dense paragraph.


Ideally your Brand Store should be a combination of videos and images

Things to avoid when creating an Amazon Storefront

  • Example of an Amazon Brand Store upload error messageDon't forget to add lifestyle imagery! Just relying on your product assortment can result in a bland Storefront
  • Try to create a Storefront that parallels your brand's ecommerce website. This will help with consistency, and alert returning customers that they are in the right place.
  • Content compliance can be tricky. Amazon will reject your proposed Storefront if it contains numerical promos, illegible information, or references to awards or accolades that can’t be verified, to name a few. Amazon is often inconsistent in terms of what they allow vs deny, so don’t be surprised if you need to spend time tweaking files, even if you read the content policy thoroughly ahead of time.
