Looking For Inventory Management Solution For Dropshipping
22 Jun 2011
Hey there. I apologize if this topic has been posted before.

I'm an eBay vendor, and I have been a member for around 4 years. I dropship exclusively from a wholesale provider. I use the company called Inventory Source for data feeds, and have just recently asked them to create a custom file to update my inventory. It's been close to a month now, I talk with them everyday, and they don't seem to understand what I need. The file they created doesn't do anything, let alone update my inventory.

Can anyone put me on the right track? Is there a company that can help me manage my virtual inventory? Thank you.

Take a look at Linnworks:
www.linnworks.com/

I needed to update inventory between ebay and my own website and they were basically the only game in town (actually, there were others but the solutions were half-baked).

Hey tkop,

Thank you for your reply. I did some research on Linnworks. It looks like a solid piece of software. But they do not mention if they have solutions for dropshipping. Like most companies I have researched, their solutions are geared for sellers that stock their own inventory. Can Linnworks integrate with my wholesale provider?

Hey Bodie,

Well, I don't have any experience dropshipping, so I honestly don't know and wouldn't feel comfortable dispensing knowledge I don't have. Go sign up on Linnworks forum and ask them yourself

I did notice this page though:

Hi Bodie,
Could you send us the exact requirement and we may be able to help you.

e.g Does the dropship company has an API to automatically integrate , or upload a csv file or send an email etc.
Would you like to automatically update stock levels

Kind Regards
Kem
