Listing Software for ebay that syncs with web store
24 May 2012
I am looking for software that will list items to both ebay and my website; instead of entering the information twice. I would also like the software to track stock levels so that we don't oversell that product.

I sell on eBay motors, so I need a product that will support ebay motors compatibility as well as item specifics. I currently list with Blackthorne and have thought about Six Bit, but they currently do not support compatibility and also do not work with shopping carts yet.

I have a shopping cart currently made by cart keeper. If needed, we can scrap the website we have and go to a new one that would support our plans.

Thanks for any help or suggestions offered!

Ryan

Yes, there are companies that offer this. Channel Advisor comes to mind. They are expensive and their basic website sucks. I think Vendio offers a similar service. Both of these companies take a percentage of sales.

We ended up writing our own software to synch inventory with our website and various marketplaces. We have not added single listing capabilities yet.

P.S. Before you make your business decision, remember that to list on eBay motors you need to have a system which knows how to deal with "K-types", which are essentials for all motor sellers.

More about K-types
A list of compatible applications specified as name and value pairs. Describes an assembly with which a part is compatible (i.e., compatibility by application). For example, to specify a part's compatibility with a vehicle, the name would map to standard vehicle characteristics (e.g., Year, Make, Model, Trim, and Engine). The values would desribe the specific vehicle, such as a 2006 Honda Accord.

Examples:
www.ebay.co.uk/itm/2-X-H7-SUPE...Make%3ABMW&hash=item2ebd5d0e3b (see item compatibilities)

Our new LinnLive v2 listing tool currently comes with no support for K-types, however I'm glad to confirm that K-types functionality will be added by 11th of June.

I see that Linnworks will list items to ebay, but will it also list items to a website when it's integrated?

Hi Ryan,

It may be worth having a look at us as well, we offer order and inventory management, stock control, and creating listings. We also provide set-up, importing in all your current live listings, so that you can get up and running as soon as possible.

Something that I think you would find very useful is our quick load tool for listings, it means that you only have to put the information in once and then ChannelGrabber will create multiple listings from it, including to your website.

If you would like to have a look further Ryan, please give us a call in and we can provide a 1-1 webinar meeting for you with one of our sales executives, so that you may see ChannelGrabber in action.

You may contact me on 0161 408 0688 and I will be happy to arrange that for you Ryan, I can also be contacted via email at jade@channelgrabber.com

Regards,
Jade

Brightpearl looks good, but I want something that does listing as well.

Linnworks may work for me, but I want to know if the listing software is good and if the k-types are implemented yet.

Channel Grabber looks like a good software as well.

If anyone has any feedback on these items, I would appreciate it.

EBay sellers looking to expand sales to their own small business ecommerce website need to use a shopping cart or third-party software that integrates an ecommerce shopping cart with eBay.

This integration will enable sales and inventory data to be shared between the systems and save you a lot of time and help you manage your online selling business across both selling channels.
