02 Aug How to Manage Selling on Multiple Marketplaces
The more places you can expose your products, the more opportunities you will have for sales. That’s marketing 101, right? Meaning: cross-selling through multiple platforms is key to sustaining e-commerce success.
Still, with multiplatform expansion comes a barrage of administrative headaches. The question weighs on entrepreneurs’ minds: how do you successfully manage cross-market transactions without getting bogged down in the minutiae?
1. Sync Your Inventory Data
The last thing you want to do is get overwhelmed by multiple transaction reports and accidentally double sell an item, let alone tank your Amazon Inventory Performance Index (IPI).
By utilizing an API-based solution like JoeLister to sync your inventory data across platforms, the stress of manual management is alleviated through automated quantity tracking. Prices and stock are updated in real time across all linked marketplaces, including Amazon, eBay, and Shopify, essentially guaranteeing a consistent IPI.
2. Automate Your Order Fulfillment
Because the API populates your eBay and Shopify listings with your Amazon inventory data, this means it can also provide automatic fulfillment via Amazon when you make a sale through these secondary marketplaces.
It’s simple: when your items sell on eBay and Shopify (and payment is received) JoeLister automatically passes the order to Amazon for shipping. They then confirm fulfillment by uploading tracking numbers to the point-of-sale marketplace.
3. Hand Over the Hassle
The secure, cross-platform lane of communication provided by an API integration offers virtually limitless means of efficiency, extending well beyond inventory metrics.
For instance, you can also automatically populate your eBay and Shopify listings with images, descriptions, and product info. Meaning you can publish hundreds of listings in just one click (a process that normally takes hours).
With less time spent doting over the details, JoeLister empowers sellers to allocate their energy and resources toward the initiatives that will help continue to grow their multi-channel business: increasing ad reach, upping inventory production, and even developing new product offerings.
