The 2016 Spring Release of marketplace management solution ChannelAdvisor Marketplaces includes Amazon feature enhancements and support for the Walmart marketplace.
ChannelAdvisor CEO David Spitz said, "We're excited to help branded manufacturers build stronger strategic connections to retailers and equip our customers with the data, analytics and dashboards needed to make smarter decisions when managing their digital marketing campaigns."
The Amazon Insights feature gives brands and retailers key product information, including stock availability and fulfillment advantages to help accelerate their Amazon sales.
The Amazon FBA Dashboard shows brands and retailers where their SKUs are within Amazon's fulfillment process, the quantity and sales value of their FBA products, where they have excess FBA inventory and a side-by-side comparison of merchant-fulfilled and FBA sales.
ChannelAdvisor's integration with Walmart was announced at ChannelAdvisor's Catalyst conference earlier this month, and is also included in the release.
Marketplace management solution ChannelAdvisor Marketplaces will be the first software provider to help retailers and brands sell on Walmart's third-party marketplace
"Our integration with Walmart's global marketplace provides retailers and brands with a great opportunity to get in front of Walmart's massive audience," said ChannelAdvisor CEO David Spitz. "We're excited to help Walmart increase its product selection by onboarding more third-party sellers, and to help our customers build their brand recognition on the website of the top retailer in the US."
ChannelAdvisor's integration with Walmart's global marketplace was announced at the Catalyst Americas 2016 conference. Using the integration, ChannelAdvisor customers will be able to list their products on Walmart.com, gaining access to the customers of one of the largest online retailers in the US.
Walmart Marketplace was launched in 2009 and is open to select retailers. Products from third-party retailers are displayed alongside Walmart's own inventory and are labelled as Walmart Marketplace items. The seller name is displayed on third-party items, and sellers gain access to special promotion opportunities like "Value of the Day" offers.
Marketplace platform provider Mirakl has partnered with ChannelAdvisor to provide ChannelAdvisor customers with access to all Mirakl-powered marketplaces.
"We are pleased to partner with Mirakl to help bring an even more comprehensive and diverse e-commerce network to retailers in the US and abroad," said Mark Vandegrift, ChannelAdvisor vice president of marketplaces product management. "With Mirakl's technology platform and ChannelAdvisor's vast network of merchants, retailers now have access to a robust solution and the opportunity to stay competitive in a complex industry."
Business running their own marketplace using Mirakl can now add the "Access ChannelAdvisor" program to their marketplace solution, providing access to ChannelAdvisor merchants.
Retailers can manage the synchronization of product and order data between ChannelAdvisor and Mirakl using a seamless API-based integration. Specifically, the feature allows Mirakl customers to access real-time product updates and expanded visibility into order fulfillment.
Mirakl-powered marketplaces include Best Buy Canada, Galeries Lafayette, Game, ePrice, Condé Nast and Halfords.
The latest release of multichannel management software ChannelAdvisor Marketplaces includes eBay and Amazon enhancements.
ChannelAdvisor's Amazon repricer has been updated to allow repricing strategies to be created and managed more easily, by selecting from commonly-used pricing strategies as templates for creating custom rules.
eBay processing time has been reduced by an average of 30%, meaning listings on the marketplace can be deactivated more quickly to help prevent overselling.
Marketplace management solution ChannelAdvisor Marketplaces has released a new feature to help identify inventory listed against the wrong Amazon ASIN.
ChannelAdvisor's "ASIN Mismatch Detection" compares the seller's price to their competitors' prices on the same listing and returns a warning if the seller's price is abnormally low. ASIN mismatches can include listing a single item against an ASIN for a multi-pack, leading to cancellations, returns and losses.
Another change in the latest ChannelAdvisor release is removal of fixed marketplace inventory allocations, as ChannelAdvisor's automatic quantity adjustments has been improved to make it unnecessary.
Ecommerce software vendor ChannelAdvisor has announced its 2015 full year financial results, with its overall performance significantly improved compared to the previous year.
The total revenue for the year was $100.6 million, a 18 percent increase compared with total revenue of $84.9 million in 2014. On GAAP the company made a net loss of $21 million compared to a loss of $34.5 million in 2014. On EBITDA a profit of $1.4 million was made in 2015 compared to a loss of $19.5 million in 2014.
ChannelAdvisor processed $6.8 billion in total gross merchandise value in 2015, an increase of 19 percent from 2014. Total customer count was 2,898 at the end of the year, an increase of 2 percent from 2,841 customers at the end of 2014.
ChannelAdvisor CEO David Spitz said, "We had a very strong finish to the year, as our fourth quarter revenue and adjusted EBITDA were above the high end of our guidance ranges. Improvements in pricing, our focus on attracting and retaining larger retailers and branded manufacturers, and our emphasis on customer success helped produce a significant increase in gross merchandise value through our platform in the quarter, as well as continued growth in average revenue per customer. Revenue overperformance came largely from a meaningful increase in variable subscription revenue and enabled us to exceed the $100 million mark in annual revenue for the first time in our company's history."
The latest release of multichannel management software ChannelAdvisor Marketplaces has a new report which compares a merchant's marketplace sales to their competitors.
The new "Marketplace Mix Trend" dashboard shows a monthly marketplace sales break-down compared to the sales of competing sellers.
Other new features in the release include:
- Amazon Sponsored Products export functionality.
- New Amazon repricer option to allow one repricing rule to apply to items of various conditions.
- Improved eBay listing error handling including additional information about the most common policy violations.
ChannelAdvisor also announced four new marketplace integrations are now under development: Bluefly, Choxi, Iguama and Tanga.

Inventory and channel management tool ChannelAdvisor Marketplaces has added support for Amazon's new Sponsored Products advertising program.
ChannelAdvisor now supports Amazon's Advertising API. The API in turn supports the Amazon Sponsored Products program, which allows Amazon sellers to promote products they sell on Amazon.com with keyword-targeted ads.
With this support, ChannelAdvisor now provides a comprehensive Sponsored Products feature that allows customers to build and manage campaigns that deliver relevant ads to targeted consumer searches. Clicks on Amazon Sponsored Products take shoppers to the Amazon product detail page on which the seller's offer is listed.
"Advertising on Amazon is a great way for retailers to boost their product visibility and get in front of Amazon's large customer base," said ChannelAdvisor CEO David Spitz. "Retailers can use Sponsored Products to direct shoppers to their Amazon product listings. Our support for Amazon's Advertising API helps retailers stand out from the competition by targeting consumers based on relevant keyword searches while they're making purchasing decisions."
When asked what digital marketing channel provides the most return on investment for their companies, 35 percent of the ChannelAdvisor 2015 Online Retail Survey respondents listed Amazon as the top channel.
