The apps available include:
- eBay listing designer CrazyLister
- Shipping tool ShipStation

Ecomdash has also added support for variation listings in Shopify. Sellers can manage variant products on Shopify, and download, edit, and create Shopify products with multiple variations such as size, color, and dimensions.
CrazyLister offers over 200+ professional, high-converting eBay templates that are mobile-responsive, and compliant with eBay's active content policies. The integration saves sellers time by automating the process of listing to eBay using these templates.
Ecomdash has also released:

Inventory and marketplace management tool Ecomdash has a new partnership with USPS postage solution Pitney Bowes, allowing them to provide all customers with a free Pitney Bowes account.
Ecomdash customers can now print return labels and SCAN forms, and enjoy discounted postage through Pitney Bowes.
Pitney Bowes return labels reduce the cost of processing returns. A free Pitney Bowes account is worth $180 per year, and customers receive additional discounts on top of Pitney Bowes' already low postage rates. Shipping Confirmation Acceptance Notice (SCAN) forms save time and money by consolidating hundreds or even thousands of orders from multiple sales channels into a single form within ecomdash.
Multichannel ecommerce tool Ecomdash has announced an expanded integration with Fulfillment by Amazon (FBA).
Highlights include automated inventory syncing, automated order routing, a new internal transfer module, and the ability to prioritize FBA among other fulfillment methods. This latest integration intends to thoroughly improve and automate backend operations for sellers who use Amazon's FBA service.
"We've been working hard at developing a capable, full-fledged inventory management solution for Fulfillment by Amazon, and I'm very proud of the team here for what we produced," said Kevin Loomis, CIO and co-founder of Ecomdash. "Our customers can now embrace the convenience of FBA with significantly less time-consuming backend tasks."
Ecomdash's multi-function FBA integration syncs inventory across multiple channels and platforms to greatly reduce the risk of overselling. Sellers can set fulfillment priorities at the product level, ensuring the fastest fulfillment possible for each order. Automatic routing of sales orders from any channel to Amazon's FBA service allows sellers to maximize the convenience of FBA.
"We set out to create the most total integration package a seller could want for FBA, a system that automates as many tasks as possible," said Loomis. "These features, whether you're a new seller or an enterprise seller, will help you speed up your fulfillment process, reduce wasteful errors, and save more time than you thought possible."
Other recent upgrades from Ecomdash include integrations with Intuit QuickBooks Online, Jet.com, and ShipStation. Ecomdash's next focus is an integration with the Walmart marketplace.
Inventory and marketplace management tool Ecomdash is now integrated with the online version of accounting tool QuickBooks.
"An Inuit QuickBooks Online integration has been fundamental to our goals as a tool since day one," said Ecomdash CEO Nick Maglosky. "We are all thrilled to add cloud accounting to the laundry list of tasks our software can automate for online retailers."
The new integration will allow Ecomdash customers to push sales orders from each of their sales channels to QuickBooks Online, where the sale will be converted into a QuickBooks sales receipt. The receipt will automatically correlate to the corresponding product in QuickBooks. This process also manages the creation of products and customer profiles in QuickBooks Online.
"We want to allow our customers to save time, scale their business, and drive sales by automating their back-end supply chain. The addition of cloud accounting is fundamental to that offering," said Maglosky.
Other recent upgrades from Ecomdash include support for multi-warehouse selling, integrations to ShipStation and Jet.com, and a Fulfillment by Amazon inventory integration scheduled in time for the holiday selling season.
Multichannel ecommerce tool Ecomdash now supports sellers with multiple fulfillment warehouses.
The update allows ecommerce businesses who use multiple warehouses or dropship suppliers to sync their inventory, route sales orders, and manage shipping across channels from a single tool.
"Support for multiple warehouses is a major step forward in our continued mission to help omnichannel ecommerce sellers scale their businesses," said Darrin Kidd, co-founder of ecomdash. "Our tool already offers the best value for ecommerce automation available, and this just reinforces our commitment to provide an excellent tool at an affordable price."
Multi-warehouse support will include the ability to prioritize warehouses for purchase orders and fulfillment, track inventory in transit between warehouses, and automatically route sales orders to alternate warehouses if the higher priority warehouse is unable to fulfill the order due to low inventory.
Inventory and marketplace management tool Ecomdash now supports US marketplace Jet.com.
The integration will allow ecommerce businesses to manage their Jet.com inventory, sales orders, listings, and a host of other functions directly from Ecomdash.
"We're always looking to grow our list of integrations to further equip our users with flexible, effective solutions to help scale their ecommerce businesses," said Kevin Loomis, CIO and co-founder of ecomdash. "With this partnership, ecomdash can now help our customers reach a whole new audience on a marketplace that has quickly surpassed 1,000,000 customers since their launch last year."
Ecomdash saw a great deal of demand for the integration from its current customers who are looking sell on Jet.com. Jet.com does not offer an admin area for sellers to manage their Jet store, so they must use a third-party solution.
"If you want to be a competitive online seller, you have to go where the customers are, and the number of people shopping on Jet is only going up from here," Loomis said. "We are the most affordable listing manager for Jet.com. They're going to be a contender in the ecommerce sphere, and ecomdash is excited to offer the Jet integration for our customers well ahead of the holiday season."
"We're thrilled to offer ShipStation users the ability to view their inventory quantities across channels as a sale is made," notes Nick Maglosky, ecomdash CEO. "ShipStation is highly regarded for offering exceptional service and quality software to their users, and we are looking forward to a strong partnership with ShipStation."
Ecomdash sellers using ShipStation have access to the following:
- Free iOS and Android mobile apps, to manage and view their ShipStation account on the go.
- Automation rules to automatically choose the optimal shipping option based on type of product, weight and geography.
- Batch printing more than 500 shipping labels at once, from a large variety of printers and devices.
- Customized and branded shipping and packing labels.

Multichannel ecommerce tool Ecomdash has added support for international eBay sites including eBay UK and Canada.
Managing operations for eBay international sites works the same as other ecomdash marketplace integrations: sellers can auto-sync product quantities, receive order information, and create shipping labels, packing slips and pick lists. Ecomdash offers eBay international sellers the ability to consolidate sales, streamline operations and gain visibility into the health of their business.
"We're thrilled to offer eBay international support to customers and trial-users," said Kevin Loomis, CIO of ecomdash. "As ecommerce gains speed, having a global presence is becoming less of an option, and more of a necessity. Growing their audience to international markets will help our customers increase sales and stay competitive"
Ecomdash also recently added integrations with Amazon UK, Germany, Spain, France, India, Canada and Italy.
Multichannel ecommerce tool Ecomdash has integrated with six further international Amazon marketplaces.

Sellers can also create pick lists, packing slips and shipping labels within ecomdash, and ship products via UPS, FedEx and DHL Express integrations.
"These new integrations will enable sellers to get in front of a global audience," said Kevin Loomis, CIO of ecomdash. "Better sales usually follow better market visibility. We're thrilled to be able to provide our customers with the opportunity to grow their profits."
Ecomdash also has integrations with Amazon.com, Canada and UK, as well as a FBA order routing system.

Ecomdash also offers integrations with the USPS via Stamps.com and Endicia.
The integration will work as follows:
- Pricing strategies will be definied as normal in Appeagle.

Inventory and marketplace management software Ecomdash has added more sales channels to its Ecomlister listing tool.
The updated tool can now manage listings on marketplaces and ecommerce platforms Bigcommerce, 3dcart, Etsy, Rakuten, Magento and Vend, in addition to Amazon, eBay, Shopify and GunBroker.com.
With the new functionality, sellers can easily edit, manage and list products for sale on any of the compatible sales channels. Whether a seller lists one or hundreds of thousands of products, they can quickly set up inventory, list products for sale in bulk, control quantities, and restock and re-list items as needed.

Though it wasn't initially planned for completion in 2015, ecomdash engineers worked overtime to create the order routing for FBA software.
