Research Info needed for a new listing software
13 Oct 2016
Hello there...I am doing some research on a project i am starting. I needed to know that all those online sellers who sell in bulk on various platforms have to go through filling out excel files provided by each one of them? Like amazon, ebay, etsy, flipkart, etc. All of them provide excel files for uploading them online. Those files have tons of columns and filling them could be a pain. Did anyone here have faced that issue? Please let me know as this could be helpful for me. thanks

No, don't have a problem. All data is in our Linnworks system and can be downloaded / uploaded to the host system if required

ok ....good to know. But don't you have to add all the items for each platform even in Linnworks? Wouldn't you prefer to have a way of adding it once and then it uploads on all platforms or generate excel files for all?

This is the exact problem solved by the dozens of multichannel management tools out there:

Sellers create their inventory data once in a central system which then sets up the listings and keeps stock levels, pricing etc. in sync across sales channels.

Linnworks is a really great tool for this, currently they can list to eBay, Amazon, Magento, BigCommerce, Tesco, Flubit and a few others.

At their recent event, the Linn Academy, the announced the creation of a universal listing tool was on their road map plus something for Shopify in the quite near future.
All the best,
