Anyone who has ever thought of buying or selling anything online is aware of eBay. It is one of the most sought after market places across the globe to purchase or sell any products. The reason behind its popularity is not only the availability of the vast range of options and variety of products but also the ease of use and cost effectiveness. It is also one of the easiest option for sellers to start their business. Whether they already have a store in place or are new to the business and working from home.
Another added advantage of eBay is that one can also sell used goods which they no longer use. The auction style of selling products is another feather in the cap which makes it a unique marketplace. While the face of it looks amazing initially, as your business progresses, the workload also increases.
There are crucial tasks that require you attention and correct recording other than a listing of your products. Some of them are:
Pricing – correct marking on the product
Inventory – details of products
Billing & Payments
Returns & Refunds
Storage & Shipping
sale & profits
The major set back comes to sellers when they are faces with never ending inventory or have more orders than they thought they could handle. Growth in business does not come easy or cheap. It requires careful planning and execution to become a well known which customers can blindly trust for quality and pricing.
Ever wondered how all this is possible on one single platform? How the companies who are in the big league managed it in the first place? How all the challenges of running a vast business involving a long inventory data, payments, billing and shipping to count a few, are addressed?
Well, the answer lies in a well implemented ERP (Enterprise Resource Planning) system which enables the users to smoothly conduct their business on daily basis. Most of the user who sell on eBay, also sell their products on other e-commerce portals to increase sales and reach out to maximum customers possible.
