Inventory and shipping management tool Teapplix is now integrated with the Walmart Marketplace.
"Walmart is one of the most important marketplaces to accept third-party sellers in the past few years. Nobody can ignore Walmart in their strategy. Our initial sellers on Walmart.com have received tremendous success with the Marketplace that reaches about 80 million unique visitors a month," noted Xudong Yan, the CEO of Teapplix, Inc.
Teapplix's software downloads Walmart.com orders and acknowledges them automatically to meet Walmart's guidelines. Users can then print shipping labels in bulk using Teapplix's integration with all major US parcel carriers.
Teapplix also synchronizes quantities remaining in stock back to the Walmart Marketplace, and exports orders into Quickbooks.
Teapplix can refer customers to obtain an invitation to sell on the Walmart Marketplace, providing Walmart's requirements are met.
Inventory and shipping management tool Teapplix has added support for Amazon's third-party marketplace in Japan.
Teapplix can now synchronize orders and inventory for Amazon Japan in the same way as its other supported Amazon marketplaces, which are:
- United States
- Mexico (through a unified North American account)
Amazon Japan have an English-language page for international sellers here.
Ecommerce shipping tool and accounting connector Teapplix now supports invoices in QuickBooks.

Inventory and shipping management tool Teapplix has added support for the Jet.com marketplace.
The new integration allows users to manage orders and inventory, and also submit listings.
Sellers with inventory already listed on other marketplaces can quickly launch their products in bulk onto Jet.com. Teapplix also automatically downloads Jet.com orders and uploads tracking numbers, handles returns, and controls inventory quantity and pricing.
Shipping and accounting automation tool Teapplix has added support for Amazon's "Seller Fulfilled Prime" program, which allows third-party sellers who ship their own products to take part in Amazon Prime.
Teapplix supports the new Amazon "Buy Shipping" API so sellers can purchase shipping labels for Amazon orders directly in Teapplix, in bulk. Buying shipping labels from Amazon is required for participation in Amazon Seller Fulfilled Prime.
Teapplix automatically recognizes Amazon Seller Fulfilled Prime orders, and allows those orders to be filtered automatically and moved into a separate queue for expedited handling.
Sellers that turn on the Buy Shipping API for their Amazon account will be able to bulk-print shipping labels using the same automated process. Teapplix supports all the carriers that Amazon provides today: USPS, UPS, FedEx and Stamps.com.
The Teapplix integration to the Amazon Buy Shipping API speeds up Amazon merchants' operations, and allow them to participate in Amazon Seller Fulfilled Prime while keeping the same automated workflow.
Inventory and shipping management tool Teapplix has released a new shipping rate feature called "SmartMethod".
Instead of manually checking rates or setting up complex rules, a special "Smart" shipping method can be set up with a configurable list of shipping services. Teapplix will then identify which service provides the lowest cost shipping option, and automatically select it. Shipping labels can be printed in bulk, with each being optimized independently.
The new feature, used correctly, can save shippers thousands of dollars per month.
Marketplace management tool Teapplix has enhanced its support for sellers shipping products from multiple warehouses.
Teapplix's InventoryAdvisor module supports tracking quantities across multiple warehouses. Marketplace listings can also be tied to a specific warehouse, and synchronize stock levels just to that warehouse, making it easier to manage inventory held by dropship vendors, FBA, or in a specific country.
Marketplace and order management solution Teapplix now supports automatic printing of USPS return labels along with normal USPS shipping labels.
The return shipping labels, printed via Endicia, are not pre-paid but instead are paid only when used by the buyer to return the order.
To use the feature, Teapplix users also need an Endicia account with the "Pay on Use" return feature enabled.
Shipping and inventory management software Teapplix can now submit non-Amazon orders to Amazon FBA for fulfillment.
Using Fulfillment by Amazon to fulfill orders from other sources is called "Multi-Channel Fulfillment" (MCF) by Amazon. Teapplix users can now "Drop Ship" orders from any sales channel by sending them to Amazon FBA.
The new feature includes selection of the appropriate Amazon FBA shipping option, sending of orders to Amazon in bulk, and uploading tracking numbers to the source channel.
Order management tool Teapplix ActionShip has improved its support for the X-Cart shopping cart, and other osCommerce-based carts.

The software can download orders from WooCommerce, and upload tracking numbers back. Teapplix's QuickBooks Connector can download WooCommerce orders and export the data to QuickBooks.
The integration does not import production information from WooCommerce, or push quantity updates to WooCommerce, but those features are planned for the future.
QuickBooks accounting integration tool Teapplix has added a summary export option for high volume sellers.
Sellers with more than two hundred orders per day may find that QuickBooks cannot handle exports of individual orders. Instead, the "daily summary" export creates a single order record for each marketplace and tax status.
Order lines for the same QuickBooks items are merged together, but others are kept separate, so inventory levels can still be adjusted correctly.
Teapplix QuickBooks Connector has added support for inventory items created from a combination of other items – known as "kits".
QuickBooks has limited support for kits, requiring the quantity remaining to be manually calculated. Teapplix works around the limitation within its own inventory system, providing the ability to define kits and synchronize inventory to QuickBooks.
Shipping and accounts integration tool Teapplix has a new feature called MultiChannel Inventory in beta testing.
The new feature updates inventory levels on eBay and Amazon every 15 minutes, using either Teapplix or QuickBooks as the master database. Teapplix are not charging for MultiChannel Inventory during beta testing, and existing users can opt in by changing their subscription options.
