Multi-channel selling from Magento
3 Nov 2016
I am looking for some advice. We run two stores from a single Magento 1.9 community installation, and we wish to sell onto various marketplaces starting with Amazon and manage orders and inventory from magento as a hub

We want a solution which allows us to
  • setup and fine tune our product feeds for each marketplace
  • allow orders to come back into magento to be processed and fulfilled
  • we want to use magento as our hub for this activity
  • We own our own brand - so product listing on Amazon for example are new - not tapping into existing products

  • We have tried Lengow but hit a wall. We run two stores (two feeds e.g. Feed A & Feed B) and have single amazon seller account selling both feed A and feed B products - So it is important that orders on products from store A on amazon go back into the correct magento store! We couldn't do this with Lengow.

    Can anyone recommend a good alternative solution - currently looking at Channel Advisor - (seem very expensive) and GoDataFeed and M2e (but this seem light on the product feed customization)

    We have deleted a post from this thread because it's against our rules for suppliers to post recommending their own products.

    www.webretailer.com/forum/174-posting-rules.asp

    No more posts from suppliers please unless the original poster specifically says that they wants their input. Suppliers are allowed to send PMs about their products/services.

    Have a look at Linnworks. It MAY suit your needs. Charlie McBroom used to work for them and is a member of this forum so you could ask him and / or Linnworks to see if their software is suitable in this aspect.

    Thanks @Bigian13 for the mention glad to see people still remember me from Linnworks.

    Before I go ahead ans say how amazing I think Linnworks is (which I think it is :P )

    It wouldn't be fair to recommend a software with out knowing your needs, where you are at the moment and where you would like to be.

  • Which marketplaces & platforms do you sell on (I see Amazon & Magento but wondered if there are any others)
  • Which couriers do you use?
  • What sort of goods do you sell?
  • Any other aspect that makes your business different to the rest? (eg. customisable products, dropshipping, selected delivery dates, brick and mortar store etc...)

  • Any questions, let me know and I will give you an honest answer of what can be done out of the box, with customisation and what may not be possible.

    All the best,

    Charlie

    @Charlie McBroom Hi - our focus is amazon UK at the moment but moving to amazon europe and japan and maybe other marketplaces a.g. Rakuten

    We have a warehouse that deals with fulfillment and is linked to magneto via api. We use magento & sage to manage stock.

    One potential issue is we run 2 stores from a single Magento installation.

    One store is a kids brand the other is adult fashion/bags.

    We have tried getting amazon to let us open a second seller account but this seems problematic. So any solution would need to work with 2 feeds from 2 magento stores going to a single Amazon seller account (unless someone has some advice on getting a second amazon seller account - both stores are under the same business) - and ideally the solution needs to be able to pull in the orders back from amazon into the correct magento store ! (This seems a potential sticking point with some providers).
