With the holiday season upon us, the integration could not come at a better time. eBay and other popular online properties are already reporting an uptick in traffic. Just recently, a marketplace management software provider reported that eBay saw the best year-over-year results since June. The company also reported that Amazon saw more twice the industry e-commerce growth rate of 15%, and other third-party marketplaces saw the highest growth rate out of all e-commerce channels.
Online statistics portal Statistica reported the number of unique U.S. visitors to eBay.com has ranged between approximately 65 and 90 million since April 2011 The integration gives GoECart merchants the ability to extend their sales reach to the millions of customers who shop on eBay every day, and it greatly simplifies selling for merchants struggling to manage inventory in today’s omni-channel world. Moreover, it greatly streamlines management of all important eBay seller activities right from within the GoECart platform. These include:
While there are stand-alone marketplace management applications that help merchants manage their products, orders and inventory on marketplaces like eBay and Amazon, they still require merchants to have their own master product catalog and own order and inventory management systems. Such integrations can be difficult and time-consuming to implement and expensive to maintain, especially for SMB merchants that need to run lean and fast.
Christopher Patzer, Owner and CEO of GoECart client HandcuffWarehouse.com, said, “Most eBay merchants feel stranded by multiple disconnected ecommerce and back office systems. With GoECart, we don’t have to do any double data entry. Because all our purchasing, sales, inventory and operations data is bundled into one easy-to-use solution, we don’t have to worry about overselling on any channel including eBay —plus we can get the orders out the door faster which is key to maintaining excellent seller ratings on eBay.”
