Many believe that ecommerce site building, at platforms such as eBay and Shopify is an easy task and consider the use of NetSuite connectors and API integration a waste of money. Unfortunately, many such enterprises learn the error of such thinking the hard way.

EBay and the newly emerged Shopify are the top ecommerce platforms across the virtual world today. While, EBay boasts traffic second to none, Shopify has the power of the largest networking site Facebook. Selling through these etailers though, is not an easy proposition and can be a harrowing experience, especially for small enterprise. Large companies can afford an exclusive IT department to run and monitor such sites. However, the small seller cannot. In fact, just following and fulfilling the format required by these two platforms is daunting for a seller, more so when there are several products involved.

Ecommerce site building is not just choosing a template and inserting images, it requires a lot more, such as integration and upload of all aspects of business, be it inventory, orders, financials and delivery tracking. All this requires immense effort, time and ultimately costs far more when done manually. However, with the NetSuite Shopify and EBay connector, this process gets automated and integration becomes a bi-directional exchange of data, which not only does the initial job of ecommerce site building, but also continually monitors the entire system.
