Over the last couple of months we have been painstakingly listing our products for sale on Amazon and eBay with the intention of adding another sales channel other than our UK based website (which currently takes the majority of our orders).
While we could take a direct feed from our existing pricelist our pricing structure is different for the marketplaces and we have different deals (buy 12 widgets, get 5 free etc) so this isn't really possible.
We have just decided to also start listing on PlayTrade as well but it strikes me that this kind of process really should be automatable. I've just phoned eSellerPro and Channeladvisor but in addition to wanting a high monthly fee they want a percentage of our profits – It would probably be cheaper to employ someone full time just to list products.
My question was whether anybody had any dealings with a site or had used a piece of software which simply allowed us to add all our products to it and this data could then be used to populate multiple marketplaces. We don’t need any bells and whistles such as order management, courier integration etc., I’d like to be simply able to put 1000 or so products in to a system which then duplicated the information over multiple marketplaces.
Thanks for any advice you can offer.
