This year's ChannelAdvisor user conference will be held on October 7th near the company's headquarters in North Carolina.
The ChannelAdvisor user conference differs from the company's better known Catalyst events, focusing on practical ways to use the ChannelAdvisor platform. The first user conference took place in October 2013 and 100% of attendees said they'd return if the conference was held again.
New ChannelAdvisor users have the most to gain from attending, and the conference features new content and more hands-on exercises than before. Attendees can learn tips and tricks, and consult with ChannelAdvisor experts in an "Ask the Expert" room.
Marketplace management tool ChannelAdvisor Marketplaces has added support for Newegg in Canada.
ChannelAdvisor has integrated with Newegg's Global Seller Program, enabling retailers and manufacturers around the world to sell into Canada through Newegg's third-party marketplace.
"We're always seeking ways to connect our customers to more consumers globally. The Canadian market is embracing e-commerce quickly. Online retail is expected to reach $39.9 billion in Canada by 2019, according to Forrester Research, Inc.," said David Spitz, ChannelAdvisor CEO. "Through our support of Newegg's Global Seller Program, retailers and branded manufacturers can enter Canada with relative ease and reach its growing online shopping population."
The Newegg Global Seller Program offers a comprehensive ecommerce platform and marketing system for retailers and branded manufacturers to sell into Canada. Newegg Canada offers more than 20 product categories such as consumer electronics, computer hardware, home appliances, jewelry and watches.
The latest release of marketplace management tool ChannelAdvisor Marketplaces includes automatic order tagging and a new "All Sales" page.
Order tags are ChannelAdvisor system-generated tags used to help identify orders. They are color coded, searchable and filterable within the new All Sales page, currently in beta. Generated order tags include Amazon Business, Amazon Merchant Prime, eBay Click and Collect, eBay Global Shipping Program, and more.
Other features in the new release include:
- A report on "orphaned" inventory items sent to Amazon FBA but not listed on Amazon.
- A check for prohibited keywords before listing on the AliExpress marketplace.
Ecommerce management solutions from ChannelAdvisor and CommerceHub have each announced their support for the new "Purchases on Google" program.
Purchases on Google is a mobile-only feature of Product Listing Ads that enables users to buy products on Google from participating merchants. The new feature is designed to make mobile transactions easier and improve conversion rates.
"The distinction between advertising channels and transactional channels is blurring," said ChannelAdvisor CEO David Spitz. "Purchases on Google is a reflection of the evolving future of e-commerce and the important role of mobile. The goal for online retailers is to be in front of as many shoppers as possible and these transactional product ads should help them do just that."
Purchases through the new program will remain cost-per-click, as it is a feature of the existing Product Listing Ads. When a shopper clicks on an ad with the feature they are taken to a retailer-branded checkout page hosted by Google.
Google recently confirmed that more than 50% of Google searches occur on mobile devices — yet in the US and globally, desktop and tablet shoppers convert at three times the rate of smartphone shoppers.
The latest release of marketplace management tool ChannelAdvisor Marketplaces includes support for eBay's new mandatory product identifiers.
ChannelAdvisor will automatically provide an appropriate identifier if one is required for the category but not already available for the product.
eBay now requires product identifiers such as UPCs, EANs, ISBNs, or MPNs in a number of categories on sites in the US, UK, Germany, Australia, and Canada. Items that do not include a product identifier will be blocked from listing and revisions.
ChannelAdvisor has also added "In-Catalog Matching" for Newegg, so items can be listed in bulk using matching Newegg item numbers, manufacturer part numbers, or UPC numbers in Newegg's product database.
Multichannel ecommerce management tool ChannelAdvisor Marketplaces has added support for the new Amazon Mexico marketplace.
"The e-commerce market in Mexico grew 32 percent in 2014, and its double-digit growth is expected to continue to a 30 percent increase in 2015," said Scot Wingo, ChannelAdvisor executive chairman. "Through the development of its fulfillment network, Amazon has simplified the logistics of selling internationally. Amazon's extensive catalog and expertise in e-commerce will likely resonate well in Mexico, and we see this as a great opportunity for retailers and branded manufacturers to enter this market."
Retailers can ship Amazon Mexico orders from their own distribution center or use Fulfillment by Amazon (FBA) from an Amazon Fulfillment Center located in the country.
Amazon Mexico launched its physical goods store and marketplace on June 30th, with products in categories including consumer electronics, home and garden, sports, health and personal care, and home improvement.
In ChannelAdvisor's 2015 Online Retail Survey, U.S. respondents listed Latin America as the second most popular destination for international orders, behind only the U.K.
Ecommerce customer service tool XSellco Fusion has integrated with inventory management platform ChannelAdvisor so users can access order details from within XSellco.
When an XSellco user receives a message relating to a product that was listed using ChannelAdvisor, they can now access the order details held in ChannelAdvisor in one click.
Marketplace management tool ChannelAdvisor Marketplaces has added support for the new Amazon Business marketplace, and French shopping site Cdiscount.
Amazon Business is Amazon's new B2B marketplace, with features tailored for the business buyer and seller. Amazon Business allows sellers to target new customers and provide business-only offers, special pricing and tiered quantity discounts. Business sellers are also able to indicate diversity and ownership credentials such as small business or women-owned, minority-owned, or veteran-owned.
Cdiscount is a French ecommerce site that offers a wide range of products. The Cdiscount integration is in a limited beta testing period.
ChannelAdvisor has provided more information on the marketplace reporting widgets that were included in its recent Spring Release.
The new widgets cover:
- Product performance and pricing for Amazon, with insights into best-selling products and Buy Box ownership.
- Global demand, showing the global destinations for marketplace orders.
- eBay Global Shipping Program (GSP), showing destinations for eBay GSP orders.
- Lack of demand, which shows which products haven't been selling well.

ChannelAdvisor has also released support for Amazon North American Unified Accounts and Rakuten UK (formerly Play.com).
ChannelAdvisor founder Scot Wingo has resigned as the company's CEO, after 13 years leading the company.
Former Chief Operating Officer and company president David Spitz has taken up the role of CEO, while Wingo stays on as executive chairman.
"I look forward to remaining closely involved in driving ChannelAdvisor's role in the complex e-commerce industry both internally and externally, and making further contributions to our products and strategy in my new role," said Wingo in a statement. "I am excited about David's appointment as CEO. I believe David is a strong, dynamic leader, with the drive to lead our organization forward, helping us create long-term value for our customers, employees and shareholders."
ChannelAdvisor recently reported $22.6 million in first quarter 2015 revenue, up 17 percent compared to the same period last year. The company made a loss of $4.2 million in the quarter but its stock price, which has suffered since it's IPO in 2013, rose nearly 6 percent on the news of Spitz's appointment.
