Amazon FBA vs. FBM: What Sellers Should Consider in the Current Situation

When sellers distribute their products through the Amazon marketplace, they must eventually decide on a fulfillment system. On the marketplace, sellers can choose between Fulfillment by Amazon (FBA) and Fulfillment by Merchant (FBM). Over the years, the Fulfillment by Amazon method has become established among marketplace sellers. However, Fulfillment by Merchant, especially in the current situation, is gaining more and more interest and followers. As Amazon announced, the in-house capacities for storage and logistics are no longer sufficient, and it is recommended to opt for FBM. We have summarized in our blog post which fulfillment system is now best for sellers and how to perform successfully on the marketplaces through automated solutions.

GraphQL vs. REST: Which is Better for Interface Development?

CMS and e-commerce systems are not all-in-one solutions for web presence that can do everything. Given the increasing number of new and complex requirements, this claim would be unrealistic. Instead, these systems serve as the foundation upon which a customized website can be built. This has been achieved for some time through interfaces that allow the integration of new systems and functionalities. Representational State Transfer, or REST, has long been the dominant standard for web APIs. However, GraphQL is now emerging as its competitor. In this blog post, we will look at the similarities and differences between both principles and address the question of which one is better suited for your project.
