Urgh, ChannelAdvisor I wish my competition made this mistake and not I. I wish they plowed 6 months of staff time and £12,000 into this useless waste of a service. At least then we could remiss and laugh about it at the yearly meet up... or at least band together and go for litigation to get our ... more

DONT EVEN TRY CHANNELADVOSOR

The worst and most expensive platform. Solid Commerce does the same thing and even better for close to nothing, and no yearly contract like Canneladvosor. DON'T WASTE YOUR MONEY WITH CHANNELADVOSOR. more

Do Not Use Channeladvisor For Premium Webstores

First, you can tell that these "stellar reviews" are the usual attempt at steamrolling real feedback and reviewers. Caveat emptor. Channeladvisor's marketing team knows only one answer, "Yes."

Ecommerce software vendor ChannelAdvisor has acquired UK company E-Tale, and its "Where to Buy" solution for brand owners.

E-Tale, founded in 2009, provides a "Where to Buy" plugin to brand name manufacturers, allowing them to show visitors a list of authorized resellers along with product availability data. Customers can then purchase products from a reseller of their choice.

"When you consider branded manufacturers, their contact with end consumers has historically been through resellers," said Scot Wingo, ChannelAdvisor CEO. "E-commerce has ushered in a new generation of shoppers and, with them, new shopping habits that send consumers directly to brands in search of their favorite products. We're thrilled to welcome the E-Tale team and solution to the ChannelAdvisor family. This acquisition can help brands maximize sales opportunities for their products no matter where they are in the online journey."

ChannelAdvisor has included E-Tale's Where to Buy tool in a new "ChannelAdvisor for Brands" initiative which also includes their Marketplaces and Digital Marketing software products.

Marketplace management tool ChannelAdvisor Marketplaces has been updated with a feature to help new users list to eBay, and support for a number of German marketplaces.

ChannelAdvisor's Autumn 2014 release includes:

  • An eBay QuickStart option which allows new ChannelAdvisor users to sell on eBay with a single set of templates that automatically creates fixed-price listings for all their products. The eBay Custom option remains and allows retailers to vary their selling preferences by items or groups of items.
  • Support for advertising on Yahoo Gemini, Yahoo's new search engine specifically designed for mobile.
  • A new Social Commerce suite with support for social media sites such as Pinerest, Wanelo, Polyvore and others. A single product inventory feed can be used for multiple social sites.
  • Support for additional marketplaces in Germany: Rakuten.de, MeinPaket and Zalando, in addition to eBay Germany and Amazon Germany.

ChannelAdvisor vice president of product management Link Walls said, "Retailers often lack the time and resources it takes to sufficiently reach target consumers. In the 2014 Autumn Release, we're ensuring that retailers' products can be visible where their customers are shopping. We're empowering retailers with the technology needed to be in the driver's seat on marketplaces and digital marketing channels. And we're offering more control and options to help them adapt to a multichannel world, where capitalizing on each conversion opportunity is vital."

Multichannel ecommerce solution ChannelAdvisor Marketplaces has added support for the UK version of eBay's Global Shipping Program.

ChannelAdvisor sellers can now select the Global Shipping option to make their items eligible. They are also recommended to add weight and dimension information to their inventory data to help calculate accurate shipping charges for international buyers.

eBay's UK Global Shipping Programme was introduced in the Autumn 2014 seller update. It enables UK sellers to trade internationally by posting parcels to eBay's UK fulfillment center for forwarding to the buyer using a tracked international delivery service.

Ecommerce software provider ChannelAdvisor has published the results of an independent study into multichannel ecommerce.

They surveyed over 200 US and UK online retailers, with an average of $3-$5 million in revenue in 2013. Participants were asked about topics including marketplaces, cross-border trade, and digital marketing. Key findings included:

  • 84 percent of retailers sell on Amazon, and 63 percent sell on eBay.
  • The retailers said the most challenging aspect of marketplace selling is competitive pricing.
  • 30 percent of retailers said 21-30 percent of their sales are from international marketplaces

ChannelAdvisor CEO Scot Wingo said "It’s critical that retailers evaluate what the rest of the industry is doing so they can stay on top of innovations. Our survey results show that retailers are taking a multichannel approach to increase their exposure in every stage of the consumer's path to purchase."

Version 6 of ecommerce customer support solution ReplyManager is integrated with eBay's resolution center, and also marketplace management tool ChannelAdvisor.

The new eBay Resolution Center integration allows users to view and respond to eBay cases directly from ReplyManager. Users are also able to organize cases using tags and respond with standard replies.

The ChannelAdvisor integration allows users of both systems to access ChannelAdvisor order data from within ReplyManager. The customer's eBay ID or email address (including Amazon's anonymized addresses) is used to find orders in ChannelAdvisor and show the results in ReplyManager.

Other features of the new version include simplified creation of filtering rules and auto-responders, and a report on the average amount of time spent handling customer emails.

Multichannel management solution ChannelAdvisor Marketplaces has started automatically filing eBay disputes when sellers refund an order.

The change is in response to the new eBay Defect Rate, which assumes refunded orders have been cancelled by the seller – and are therefore defective – if a dispute has not been filed.

ChannelAdvisor will automatically create an eBay dispute for orders which meet the following criteria:

  • The order has been marked as shipped.
  • The refund is for the whole item value.
  • There isn't already a dispute created for the order.

The change took effect on May 21 and will be retroactive for refunds submitted since May 1.

A dispute will not be created for partial refunds, as they are not treated as seller-cancelled orders by eBay.
