A priceless partner in your business

I have been a user of Linnworks for around 3 years now, and I run a business that sells mainly on ebay and Amazon, but also on play and a couple of websites powered by Big COmmerce and Amazon Webstore. Before signing up to LW I looked at Channel Advisor, Eseller Pro and Channel Grabber. The 1s... more

Great software! We use it on Magento, Amazon, eBay, Buy.com

February 12, 2013 - Linnworks & LinnLive (their listing tool) is overall a great software. We have used it for 1 full year now. They have grown a lot in 2012 and added some much needed features.

We currently use Linnworks to manage our eBay, Amazon, Play and Magento store (http://www.dinkycartridges.co.uk/). We find that it works very well for eBay and the Linnlive listing tool saves loads of time. Amazon integration often seem to miss some products when updating inventory and can cause u... more

Linn(Never)works

It looks great at first and you watch all the videos and you think wow this is going to be the answer to all my problems then you start to use it and it's all downhill from there.

Avoid! All talk no action.

I have been using the free trial and I must say out of all the programmes I have used over the past 6 years Linnworks is by far the most disappointing. The system couldn't handle importing less than 9,000 listings. I was given every excuse under the sun (replies take from a couple of minutes t... more

Reveiw & brief comparison of Linnworks, Channel Advisor, eSeller pro

I have been using a heavily modified osCommerce website to run my business for the past 6 years and it fits my business well in the first few years.

Multichannel Management » Inventory & Channel Management

Inventory and channel management tool Linnworks is now integrated with crafts marketplace Etsy, and has also launched a new initiative to help merchants grow their eBay sales.

The Etsy integration will enable Linnworks users to manage Etsy inventory, and process orders for shipping and dispatch.

The integration initially can only be setup in cloud-based Linnworks.net, but can then be used on a day-to-day basis in Linnworks Desktop as well as Linnworks.net.

A new partnership between Linnworks and eBay aims to grow the businesses of Linnworks sellers on the eBay marketplace, by providing them with access to tools and valuable information.

Linnworks Implementation Manager and eBay Growth Project Lead Mark Aldous commented, "We are delighted to be working with eBay in order to help our sellers. The Trending Emails and Stats Application are just two examples of some of the great tools and information we have available to our sellers, helping them to grow their eBay business."

The new Trending Emails helping sellers understand what is expected to start selling in the next month or so, using market data compiled by eBay over the last 4-5 years. Heat maps show which categories will peak in popularity and which will decline in the coming months. The data is particularly important in the lead-up to Christmas, when sales are expected to be at an all-time high.

To help sellers optimize their eBay listings, Linnworks has partnered with Two Legs Bad, the developer of the eBay Stats Application, and will be funding additional examinations at no extra cost for a limited time; initially up until the end of 2016. The application analyses listings and provides actionable tips to increase sales.

Multichannel management system Linnworks has announced new pricing plans including 24/7 unlimited customer support.

The new plans, to be rolled out on Tuesday 13th September, replace six previous plans with varying levels of support and system functionality.

The new model has only three plans, and no longer limits support or functionality on either of the paid subscriptions. All paying customers will have access to unlimited 24/7 support, by means of phone, live chat or the helpdesk system.

The new pricing model is instead based on the number of users. The Professional plan costs £150 per month for up to two users, plus £50 each for any additional users. The Corporate plan, at £1,000 per month, supports unlimited users.

Writing on the Linnworks blog, Head of Business Development Artem Verovenko said, "Our existing pricing model limits our customers to a certain level of support and system functionality, however the reality is that we cannot build a world-class solution by limiting customers on either. It is for this reason why we have introduced these changes to our support model and pricing structure."

Existing customers will have up until January 16th 2017, before they need to move onto one of the new pricing plans. They can, however, choose to move over at any time from the 13th September 2016, should they wish to benefit from unlimited 24/7 support.

Inventory and channel management tool Linnworks has announced plans to provide 24/7 customer support, and has also released a new integration with shipping consolidator GFS.

Around-the-clock support will be provided for all pricing tiers, following a customer survey showing 86% of Linnworks wanted 24/7 phone, live chat and ticket support. The change will be made "in the coming months". Linnworks has hired additional Customer Support Representatives, currently undergoing intensive training, to meet the demand.

Linnworks will be changing their pricing model to accommodate the support changes. The new pricing will be based on the number of users, and will not have commission or per-transaction charges, or limit functionality.

Linnworks Support Manager Anton Tshubarov said, "Our goal is to ensure that every single customer gets access to unlimited 24/7 support and are not being limited based on the package they are on, by no later than early 2017. Migrating thousands of customers onto a new pricing model and ensuring that we are offering an outstanding level of support is no easy task, but 86% of our customers wanted this to happen and it's our responsibility to listen to their needs and make sure that we succeed."

Linnworks has partnered with Global Freight Solutions (GFS), so customers can easily access GFS's wide range of shipping services and solutions directly from within Linnworks.

The new integration will give customers access to a range of delivery services and UK carriers via GFS. A single portal is provided by GFS for shipment tracking.

Finally, Linnworks have announced the return of their annual online seller event, Linn Academy. Now in its 4th year, Linn Academy provides online sellers with the chance to meet other online retailers, industry experts and Linnworks staff.

Senior management from Linnworks will discuss updates to the system and support, and ecommerce experts from eBay, UKTI, Tamebay and World First will discuss some of the most popular industry topics.

Linn Academy is taking place at Old Trafford Football Ground in Manchester, on the 19th of October.

Linnworks expects 500 online sellers to attend Linn Academy, which is not limited to Linnworks' customers. Find out more.

Multichannel management system Linnworks has added a new purchase orders module to its cloud-based edition.

Linnworks Senior Developer Patrick Loney said, "We've worked hard over the last month to get the PO functionality ready. We're still polishing the corners and we're really interested to see what you make of it and how we can improve the page for all our users. Our next project is to add a Stock In screen into Linnworks.net, where we're hoping to improve the integration between Purchase Orders and Stock In to simplify your lives even further."

Today Linnworks users can use the new module to:

  • Create and edit purchase orders
  • Search by supplier reference, PO reference and location
  • View purchase orders at different stages
  • View the audit log for every purchase order
  • Create, edit and review notes on each purchase order

A future update will add the ability to print purchase orders and email them directly to suppliers.

Purchase orders is one of the last major modules to be ported over from Linnworks Desktop and removes one of the final barriers preventing users from migrating to Linnworks.net.

Inventory and channel management tool Linnworks is now integrated with UK shipping aggregator Parcel Station.

The new integration provides Linnworks users with access to some of the lowest rates on the UK and international parcel delivery market.

Parcel Station's carrier integration software provides sellers with intelligent routing options, allowing them to automatically select the best carrier and print the correct shipping label.

Parcel Station delivers to over 190 countries worldwide, and has partnerships with industry-leading carriers across the globe. Parcel Station has a "direct injection" arrangement for deliveries to Germany, France and the USA, meaning that parcels are entered directly into the national postal networks of those countries. Direct injection can save 40%-50% over standard overnight services such as FedEx.

In the UK, Parcel Station covers the following carriers: Hermes, Royal Mail, Yodel, DX and DX Freight, DHL and XDP.

Multichannel management system Linnworks has improved the navigation of its cloud-based UI this week, alongside new investment in technical support and popular new apps.

UI Improvements

Linnworks.net menus have undergone a major redesign, providing easier navigation, more space for core tasks, a more intuitive feel, and embedded technical support.

A new "sync status" tool bar shows exactly when information is being synced and if there have been any errors.

Expanded Technical Support

Linnwork's recent annual customer survey, while mostly positive, identified technical support capacity as needing improvement. As a result, Linnworks have significantly increased their investment in that department.

The investment will help them increase the number of support representatives available to respond to tickets, live chats and phone calls.

Anton Tshubarov, Technical Support Manager at Linnworks, said, "With the expanded Linnworks Technical Support Team, we are looking forward to offering a better service to our customers than ever before."

New Store and Mobile Apps

Two new Linnworks apps have been released, one in the Linnworks App Store and another for Android mobile devices.

The eBay Price and Competition Analysis Application helps eBay sellers price competitively against the competition. It is now the most downloaded app on the Linnworks App Store.

The app finds listing competitors to allow quick price comparisons. It searches using EANs, UPCs, the eBay Product Catalog and also by keyword to match products, then shows competitor listings, best match ranks and a summary price comparison.

The second app, from eBusiness Guru, is for Android devices and is called LinnKwik. It allows business owners to keep an eye on the status of their orders and shipping despatches.

Linnworks also has three new apps in the Application Store, developed by partner eBusiness Guru. The apps provide integrations with online deals site Groupon, Polish ecommerce platform IDoSell and social media marketing solution Mento.

Ecommerce customer support system XSellco Fusion is now integrated with multichannel management tool Linnworks.
