Managing your eBay inventory, no matter how big or small, is hard work, but having a well organised and maintained inventory can save you more time than you may think. Here are some reasons why you need an eBay inventory management software.
Managing your inventory manually is time consuming, challenging, and has plenty of potential for human error. Having a software do the hard work for you can not only save you valuable time and effort, but eliminate the worry of making mistakes.
Automating a lot of the eBay inventory management process can save you time. By using an inventory management software, you can get automatic updates on your stock, bulk print shipping labels, and email customers with tracking numbers for their orders.
Having live updates on your stock levels and orders in real time can help you keep up to date with your inventory as it’s being updating.
If you sell on more than one online marketplace, inventory management software can sync stock with other sales channels - so if you’re selling on eBay, Amazon and WooCommerce, for example, you could sell something on eBay and the software will automatically update your stock across the other channels.
Having an eBay Inventory management software helps you to keep on top of your suppliers so you can create and email purchase orders to them, then easily check your stock against the purchase order when it arrives.
You can set re-order levels with your eBay inventory management software so that once your stock reaches the minimal quantity you have set, the software will automatically order new stock, so you never have to worry about disappointing your customers.
Easy to understand reports provide you with all the necessary statistics on your performance - gross profit, for example, is an important indicator of how well you are doing, and brand reports can help you identify which stock is selling well, and which stock you need to get rid of.
