A new partnership between Linnworks and eBay aims to grow the businesses of Linnworks sellers on the eBay marketplace, by providing them with access to tools and valuable information.

Linnworks Implementation Manager and eBay Growth Project Lead Mark Aldous commented, "We are delighted to be working with eBay in order to help our sellers. The Trending Emails and Stats Application are just two examples of some of the great tools and information we have available to our sellers, helping them to grow their eBay business."

The new Trending Emails helping sellers understand what is expected to start selling in the next month or so, using market data compiled by eBay over the last 4-5 years. Heat maps show which categories will peak in popularity and which will decline in the coming months. The data is particularly important in the lead-up to Christmas, when sales are expected to be at an all-time high.

To help sellers optimize their eBay listings, Linnworks has partnered with Two Legs Bad, the developer of the eBay Stats Application, and will be funding additional examinations at no extra cost for a limited time; initially up until the end of 2016. The application analyses listings and provides actionable tips to increase sales.

Multichannel management system Linnworks has announced new pricing plans including 24/7 unlimited customer support.

The new plans, to be rolled out on Tuesday 13th September, replace six previous plans with varying levels of support and system functionality.

The new model has only three plans, and no longer limits support or functionality on either of the paid subscriptions. All paying customers will have access to unlimited 24/7 support, by means of phone, live chat or the helpdesk system.

The new pricing model is instead based on the number of users. The Professional plan costs £150 per month for up to two users, plus £50 each for any additional users. The Corporate plan, at £1,000 per month, supports unlimited users.

Writing on the Linnworks blog, Head of Business Development Artem Verovenko said, "Our existing pricing model limits our customers to a certain level of support and system functionality, however the reality is that we cannot build a world-class solution by limiting customers on either. It is for this reason why we have introduced these changes to our support model and pricing structure."

Existing customers will have up until January 16th 2017, before they need to move onto one of the new pricing plans. They can, however, choose to move over at any time from the 13th September 2016, should they wish to benefit from unlimited 24/7 support.

Inventory and channel management tool Linnworks has announced plans to provide 24/7 customer support, and has also released a new integration with shipping consolidator GFS.

Around-the-clock support will be provided for all pricing tiers, following a customer survey showing 86% of Linnworks wanted 24/7 phone, live chat and ticket support. The change will be made "in the coming months". Linnworks has hired additional Customer Support Representatives, currently undergoing intensive training, to meet the demand.

Linnworks will be changing their pricing model to accommodate the support changes. The new pricing will be based on the number of users, and will not have commission or per-transaction charges, or limit functionality.

Linnworks Support Manager Anton Tshubarov said, "Our goal is to ensure that every single customer gets access to unlimited 24/7 support and are not being limited based on the package they are on, by no later than early 2017. Migrating thousands of customers onto a new pricing model and ensuring that we are offering an outstanding level of support is no easy task, but 86% of our customers wanted this to happen and it's our responsibility to listen to their needs and make sure that we succeed."

Multichannel management system Linnworks has added a new purchase orders module to its cloud-based edition.

Linnworks Senior Developer Patrick Loney said, "We've worked hard over the last month to get the PO functionality ready. We're still polishing the corners and we're really interested to see what you make of it and how we can improve the page for all our users. Our next project is to add a Stock In screen into Linnworks.net, where we're hoping to improve the integration between Purchase Orders and Stock In to simplify your lives even further."

Today Linnworks users can use the new module to:

  • Create and edit purchase orders
  • Search by supplier reference, PO reference and location
  • View purchase orders at different stages
  • View the audit log for every purchase order
  • Create, edit and review notes on each purchase order

A future update will add the ability to print purchase orders and email them directly to suppliers.

Purchase orders is one of the last major modules to be ported over from Linnworks Desktop and removes one of the final barriers preventing users from migrating to Linnworks.net.

Multichannel management system Linnworks has improved the navigation of its cloud-based UI this week, alongside new investment in technical support and popular new apps.

UI Improvements

Linnworks.net menus have undergone a major redesign, providing easier navigation, more space for core tasks, a more intuitive feel, and embedded technical support.

A new "sync status" tool bar shows exactly when information is being synced and if there have been any errors.

Expanded Technical Support

Linnwork's recent annual customer survey, while mostly positive, identified technical support capacity as needing improvement. As a result, Linnworks have significantly increased their investment in that department.

The investment will help them increase the number of support representatives available to respond to tickets, live chats and phone calls.

Anton Tshubarov, Technical Support Manager at Linnworks, said, "With the expanded Linnworks Technical Support Team, we are looking forward to offering a better service to our customers than ever before."

New Store and Mobile Apps

Two new Linnworks apps have been released, one in the Linnworks App Store and another for Android mobile devices.

The eBay Price and Competition Analysis Application helps eBay sellers price competitively against the competition. It is now the most downloaded app on the Linnworks App Store.

The app finds listing competitors to allow quick price comparisons. It searches using EANs, UPCs, the eBay Product Catalog and also by keyword to match products, then shows competitor listings, best match ranks and a summary price comparison.

The second app, from eBusiness Guru, is for Android devices and is called LinnKwik. It allows business owners to keep an eye on the status of their orders and shipping despatches.

Inventory and marketplace management tool Linnworks has announced the launch of a new cloud-based version of its software.

The new Linnworks.net is "the next generation in online automation software and the first ever system to combine the power of a desktop application with web-based technology". Linnworks.net promises to be a high-speed system that never slows down at peak times, and won't suffer under high loads.

The launch version includes channel integrations and shipping automation, enabling businesses to sync, edit, update, and fulfill orders across dozens of online marketplaces in real time. Linnworks.net is fully responsive and accessible on all major browsers and devices including iOS and Android phones and tablets. The current version is a "soft launch". At "hard launch" customers will find all of the features currently in Linnworks Desktop, and much more.

Linn Systems' CEO Fedor Dzjuba said, "Linnworks.net has been two years in the making, so today is the culmination of the entire team's incredible hard work. We've designed the very first online automation software to combine the power of a desktop application while running in a browser. We've radically reimagined the existing Linnworks system, so customers will get the same high-quality software they've come to expect, but with the latest HTML5 and Web API technologies under the hood to make it incredibly fast. It contains all the essential tools for managing online businesses and the kind of functionality and speed usually only found in desktop software."

Linnworks.net allows users to fully customise the system to suit their business needs, and an App Store will allow developers to create their own modules. Linnworks was formerly available only as Windows Desktop software.
