One of the most time-consuming parts of multichannel selling is the listing of new products. Amazon, eBay and ecommerce webstores all have a different required fields, and filling each one out manually is a long and arduous process.
So we decided we wanted to do something about it:
We wanted to build a new, core feature on ChannelGrabber – the ability to create a new product just once, and then list it to all desired channels. And that’s what we’re doing. Our development team is currently devoting all available resources to create this essential Listings tool, and we’re well on the way to a full release soon!
As you can imagine, this is a complex undertaking, with so many variations in the listings process between channels. That’s why we’re tackling the new feature with a staged development process. We’re releasing different parts of the new listings tool in gradual stages, to make sure everything is working as it should – and to ensure all our customers are completely satisfied with it!
By the second week of March, we’d added even more functionality for beta testing: the ability to list variation products. We know this is essential for our multichannel sellers who list multiple products that have slight variations – like colour and size. One final piece to add to this initial release was the default listing settings. We want to make sure adding new listings is as quick and as simple as possible, so including the option to pre-populate certain fields every time a new listing is created means we can speed up the process and improve efficiencies all around.
If you haven’t registered as a volunteer, you can see how everything works in our new Listings User Guides
. We’ll be adding to this as we add new features and functionality to the Listings tool.
We’ll continue to make announcements about our listing tool as new functionality becomes available, so watch this space for more details. In the meantime, if there are any specific features or functionality that you would like to see in ChannelGrabber, do not hesitate to get in touch with us by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org
