As a growing online business selling through multiple channels like eBay, Amazon and your own Webstore it is best to consider syncing inventory to avoid overselling and yet making our entire inventory available for sale to both eBay and Amazon customers. If you are not selling through all Marketplaces, you are losing out a big chunk of your revenue!
It is nice to see growing sales and in order to continue the growth it is important to put our heads on sales strategy and find a system that can help you in these areas:
- Printing orders and Royal Mail labels from one screen
- Auto updating inventory after sales from all the channels
- Shipping multiple orders at one time
- Providing tracking numbers to your customers automatically
- Printing a list of stock to pick
When we are able to work on these efficiently with a system, we get plenty of time to think about how we can grow your online business. We can work achieve all these through “Veeqo” with a competitive price of £60/month if you are selling 1,000 products. As a new system we would like to try it out and like any other system Veeqo has free trial offer for a month. If you find it worth investing, sign up for a year and save 15% i.e. you pay only £51.00 a month.
Veeqo is founded by Matt, a good friend of mine for sometime now. Prior to Veeqo, Matt founded and is still CEO of a multi-million pound online business Jura Watches. Matt delivered a talk in February this year on our Online Seller Wales – Cardiff event.

It took me a good few years to understand how eCommerce works. I am quite impressed by the claim that it will be clarified in less than an hour!
We know by now Selling on one platform is not good enough. Retailers needs to be as many selling platform as possible. It is good to start on eBay and grow out to sell on Amazon, Rakuten Play and Etsy. Here’s a snapshot of traffic to these sites in 2012 & 2013.
Amazon tops the chart followed by eBay, Etsy and Rakuten Play. If you are not in any of these platforms you know you should be there. Every platform has their own features and you need to check one at a time to see if it is profitable for you. Bear in mind that “experimenting is better than assuming.”
Getting top of inventory management and order management is important when we have two or more selling platform. When you are not coping with the pressure of many orders then you know you need a tool to help you out. This is when you nee something like Stitch.
” Stitch is your all-in-one small business inventory management system that lets you increase sales, boost productivity, and communicate professionally – more effectively than ever before!”

It is nice to have our businesses diversified in terms of sales channels so if one does not work there is always another-one working and keeping our cash-flow going. This is also and indication to UK businesses that it can only survive better if they are on multi-channel platforms. Good luck everyone !
