Payability Takes Off With Instant Advance and Multiple Marketplace Support

From faster payouts for Amazon sellers, to upfront growth capital and support for 15+ marketplaces, Payability is moving really fast this year.

If you ask any online seller about their goals, you’ll hear two things almost every time: they want to grow their sales and they want to sell on more marketplaces. The first goal is essential, more sales means more profit, and a more successful business. The second goal, selling through multiple channels, makes the business a lot less risky.

These goals may sound simple, but they aren’t easy to achieve. To grow, ecommerce businesses need cash. You can only sell more if you have the funds to buy stock in larger quantities and quickly take advantage of new growth opportunities. Likewise, diversifying across multiple marketplaces takes a lot of effort to set up on each platform, to build sales and to manage everything day-to-day.

It’s been a year since we last talked about Payability, and its innovative service to help Amazon sellers get their payouts daily, now known as Instant Access. Things have moved really quickly since then.

Payability has a new service called Instant Advance, which provides ecommerce sellers with a big cash injection quickly to help grow sales. It has also expanded beyond Amazon, and now supports 15 marketplaces and shopping carts in total. Clearly this is a business moving as fast as the online sellers it supports.

Momentum: New Amazon Seller Suspension Cover from NAS Insurance

Dodge a bullet with this new Amazon insurance policy, covering financial loss, reinstatement expert expenses and even tax audits.

Amazon seller account suspensions are a common occurrence and can be devastating for the businesses affected.

You’ve probably heard the horror stories about honest, hard-working sellers losing access to their accounts and having their payouts frozen. Their loans have to be paid and day-to-day expenses mount up, while costly reinstatement experts help them battle Amazon to get their accounts back as quickly as possible. But it can be a slow process, and success is not guaranteed.

Now a new Amazon suspension insurance option has launched for U.S. sellers, from leading underwriter NAS Insurance Services. The new cover, called Momentum, covers financial loss up to $1,000,000, suspension appeal expenses up to $25,000, and tax audit expenses up to $2,500.

With rates starting as low as $250 annually, it makes sense for all Amazon sellers to seriously consider protecting their accounts before they have their own horror stories to tell.

Discover These Innovative eBay Marketing Tools from 3Dsellers

Over 200,000 eBay sellers have grown their businesses with tools including Feedback Reminder, Listing Designer, and ThankYou Emails

When sellers think of eBay software, they often think of tools that allow them to list items quicker or help manage their inventory. But when the co-founder of 3Dsellers, Alex Flom, started selling medical equipment on eBay ten years ago, he realized there was another problem.

Sellers were neglecting the marketing and promotional side of their businesses. This was a big deal. By promoting their existing products better, they could make more sales without having to offer any more products.

So, to help grow his business, Alex had developed a number of unique eBay tools. He soon made them available as eBay apps so other sellers could benefit from using them. The first was a very popular tool that added a share button to eBay listings – before eBay created their own sharing buttons.

In the eight years since then, 3Dsellers have continued to build innovative tools exclusively for eBay sellers. These have been amazingly popular, with over 200,000 eBay sellers using their tools to date. What’s more, their tools are no longer just eBay apps. Instead, they have all been upgraded and are now available on one dashboard for the first time.

Amazon Seller Suspension and Cancellation Cover Now Available Worldwide

Amazon sellers can get protection of up $70,000 if rival sellers start taking potshots at them, thanks to the new Monitor & Protect service

For Amazon sellers, having their account suspended has become an occupational hazard. But this doesn’t mean that it’s any less damaging when it happens. Sellers have to contend with the fact that they have little or no funds coming in, while expenses like staff costs and rent still have to be paid.

Using a suspension consultant is a great way to get reinstated quickly, but if Amazon have a backlog, your account could still be out of action for a while.

Now Thompson & Holt have an innovative new type of cover for Amazon sellers, included as part of their Monitor & Protect package. This includes account health notifications and listing hijack alerts, to help sellers avoid suspension in the first place.

But if sellers do get suspended through no fault of their own, there’s cover to fall back on of up to £50,000 (around $70,000), underwritten by Lloyd’s of London. This allows sellers to claim back lost revenues, less any savings made, while their business was unable trade.
