Marketplace and order management system Linnworks has announced a number of changes and improvements in its November newsletter.
New Linnworks sellers subscribing after 7th January 2014 will pay rates starting from £80+VAT per month for the Entry/Basic level (was £40+VAT per month). The price for Standard, Professional and Enterprise plans will increase by 50% to £180, £360 and £570 per month respectively. The starting price for Corporate subscriptions remains £1,999 per month. Prices will not increase for existing customers.
Writing on the Linnworks blog, Head of Business Development Artem Verovenko, said "We know that no one likes price increases and we have worked hard to keep our prices below average for the last couple of years. We feel that this is a necessary change to reflect the increased capabilities of Linnworks, but will not be changing the subscription costs for existing customers unless they choose to move to one of the new plans, as we have always done."

Linnworks has improved their integrations with carriers DPD and Interlink Express, and also with USPS label printing service Endicia. They now integrate directly with the suppliers' online services rather than through installed software.
Finally, Linnworks is starting a new series of webinars each Wednesday, starting 20 November. The sessions will cover advanced topics, starting with Composition Items. The company also runs Getting Started Webinars on Thursday afternoons. For more information see Linnworks' upcoming events page.

- eBay photo sharing — eBay buyers and sellers can now exchange photographs

ReplyManager has also announced plans to work more closely with multichannel management tool Linnworks, and expects to launch a new integration in the first quarter of 2014.
"We've been working toward an integration with Linnworks for quite a while and are very excited about this happening in the very near future. Linnworks provides a very useful tool that helps online sellers manage and grow their business. Plus, the UK has been our fastest growing market. Integrating ReplyManager and Linnworks seems like the logical next step," said ReplyManager co-founder, Jodi Gaines Pereira.
Ecommerce management system Linnworks has been enhanced with a new iPhone/iPad application, now supports the new UK marketplace Intu, and has launched a new website and subscription options.
The new iOS app, called LinnDash and developed by Linnworks partner Boluga, allows sellers to access their Linnworks account on Apple devices including iPhones and iPads. Sellers can track orders through a comprehensive sales dashboard, with data including total sales, order volume, average order value, channel split and more.
Linnworks now supports UK marketplace Intu. The Intu marketplace, currently in beta, is owned by Intu Properties - a company which runs 16 shopping malls including Manchester's Trafford Centre and Essex's Lakeside. The marketplace provides a click and collect service through Intu's shopping centres.
Linnworks has also announced a number of changes in response to their rapid growth and shift in customer base over the five years since they launched:
- More customisation options for large retailers
- Expanding support hours to 9am to 9pm
- A new website design and updated logo
- Reducing subscription options from nine to five, removing Local Subscription and moving Express to the "Anywhere" platform

The order book is automated to receive orders from multiple channels such as eBay/PayPal, Amazon, many different e-commerce platforms. All you need to do to get new orders and update the status of the existing ones, is to click one button which will automatically connect to different channels and obtain your latest orders, no file importing necessary. As the system designed ground up using modular architecture, should you find a need to integrate with your own bespoke website it can be done as a bespoke module. Contact our technical support or sales team for more information.
All you stocked products can be linked with orders coming in from eBay, Amazon or your website by the item title. Everytime you process an order the order items automatically deducted from the current stock level. When you acquire new stock by purchasing it from the supplier you can simply create a purchase order which will automatically increase the stock level once the purchase order is delivered.
