Is there a combined eBay, Amazon & www storefront manager?
27 Mar 2008
Hello!

I've been searching for what may turn out to be nonexistent, but I'd be delighted to be proved wrong. :-)

It struck me that a range of online selling routes - personal e-commerce store, Amazon, eBay, MSN Shopping, etc. - share common attributes for the things they sell. These being; item description, product photograph(s), item price, item category, shipping costs, payment provider ( credit card, PayPal) etc.

So is there a product or service which would allow me to manage my items / inventory in a single place but allow me to sell at _multiple_ outlets?

For example I'd have say a product called "500GB hard disc" complete with its photo, item description, shipping cost etc etc and effectively have a number of checkboxes alongside the item in "edit mode" entitled "Sell at eBay. Sell At Amazon. Sell At Own Web Store. Sell at MSN Shopping" where I could choose where to offer it for sale..

Surely in this day & age I don't need separate tools to manage each of my online selling activities, each keeping their own independent stock levels, sales records and customer details?

Any thoughts would be most welcome.

Thanks!

Aha! Thanks Steve. My only concern here is a general one I have in life.... if I can't see a price, I usually can't afford it. :-)

Are you able to give example costs? I notice one comment on the eSeller site "...monthly support and maintenance charge, based on your usage of the system" - how is "your usage of the system" defined? Number of items actually sold, number of items available for sale, percentage of turnover of items sold?

Similarly with regard to which sales mechnisms eSeller integrates with, a claim is made "This includes an online web store, eBay, Amazon or a range of other online trading platforms." - is it possible to name the "range" of platforms?

Thanks again,

As a relative newbie to this site myself, I'm uncertain as to how much I can post here re costs etc. Andy the mod will obviously advise

You should be able to see my email address on my profile, drop me a mail and we can discuss.
