It’s a good time to launch e-commerce, but it doesn’t make sense to do it without undertaking a multichannel strategy. It is important to be present in several sales channels if we want to boost our sales. And an essential piece to be able to do this are the marketplaces integrators.

What are e-commerce feed management solutions?

Let’s say you have your own e-commerce, with a few products, a stock, integrated logistics operators, and so on. If you want to start selling also in a marketplace like Amazon or eBay, you must make sure that all the information is coherent and synchronized. In other words, if you sell an item through Amazon, it will be discounted from your available stock both in your own store and in your account in the marketplace. And so on with many other aspects.

For this purpose, marketplaces integration platforms have been created, which allow you to centralize and manage all the information from a single place. They function as a connector between the different channels, ensuring that all the information is coherent and that everything is configured correctly.

In this article we are going to analyze 4 options of marketplaces integrators that you can use:
