interested in multi channel platforms as well. Wondering which platform (Vendio, Shoppal or Marketplace advisor) is the best solution for new business
Which are the main features of these platforms, that I could compare ?

Hi pol124, and welcome

Of those, MarketplaceAdvisor (which is different from ChannelAdvisor's Premium product) is eBay-only and ShopPal's eBay integration is via Turbo Lister - it's primarily a solution for a standalone web store. Vendio Platform does eBay and Amazon as well as supporting an independent online store.

If you have a new business, I would actually recommend starting out with a single channel. Each channel is different and has its own learning curve, getting to grips with many at the same time could be a real headache.

thanks a lot
To tell the truth, I was meaning Marketplace advisor Premium.
Marketplace advisor Premium as well does eBay and Amazon and supports independent online store ?

And about main features. Do all these platforms automate messaging to buyers and winning bidders ?

Yes, the Premium version does all that. However, it's aimed at large sellers and is priced accordingly.

That's a common feature of auction and order management software, but ShopPal does not have that feature for eBay auctions because it's not really an auction management application.
