eBay has a rich history of person-to-person trading. It is built on the idea of connecting people rather than selling goods, and it succeeds at that quite well. Whether it’s an eBay auction or Buy It Now, nothing is more exciting after a bout of online shopping than getting that notification in your inbox: Your order has shipped! Tracking information is vital currency to customers, and the sooner your customers can see their order is on its way, the better.
Connect to the eBay Market
With a 2016 net revenue of $8.9 billion and 168 million active buyers in Q3 of 2017, eBay has the potential to expand your customer base exponentially, so it’s important to keep your eBay buyers’ experiences positive ones.
Once a customer places an eBay order, the information needs to flow seamlessly into your Sage 100 accounting system to trigger fulfillment followed by shipment and tracking. And, if orders are entered manually, not only does that take extra time, there’s also an increased opportunity for mis-keying, all resulting in shipment delays which means you need a solution that can connect to every order from every virtual shopping cart your products could land in and funnel that information into a central system automatically.
Sound impossible? It’s not. These ROI Consulting customers keep real-time customer data flowing smoothly between eBay and Sage 100 using IN-SYNCH.
