Recently, Max from Shoxtec Suspension , came head-to-head with an inventory problem. He was unable to find an automated tool to sync (their) Shopify store inventory with other respective marketplaces’ inventories i.e. Amazon, Walmart and eBay.
As of February 25, 2023, the New and Improved version of Amazon by CedCommerce is now known as “CedCommerce Amazon Channel”.
Having their operations on these many platforms in itself is cumbersome. They had to manage operations on four different platforms across several states. Such hurdles might’ve compromised the venture’s operational activities and slowed them down.
Apart from the inventory sync obstacle, Shoxtec was also exposed to several other underlying obstacles. For instance, lack of ‘upload-automation’ for product data (on four different platforms), order management from multiple platforms, track of operations and lack of single platform synchronization among four ends of this same business, Shoxtec’s.
CedComerce’s integration solution app, ‘Walmart integration’ resolved all such inventory-related issues for Shoxtec! The same resolution was given by CedCommerce’s ‘Amazon by CedCommerce’ app and ‘Integration for eBay‘ app.
Within 3-4 months of using these integration apps, Shoxtec witnessed a 5x increase in their sales! Also, with Shopify’s recent (Amazon integration) service ceasement, sellers were left ‘high and dry’ for an Amazon integration tool.
Once Shoxtec started using this Amazon integration app and both Walmart’s and eBay’s, their major problem of inventory sync was solved right away.
There are numerous seller issues but during the holiday season, when orders peak, these issues might cost a lot to the sellers. Hence, they should be prepared with practical contingencies.

Watch Max as he talks about his retailing experience with CedCommerce and the further assistance from its integration solutions.
When Shoxtec first approached CedCommerce through Max, they were doubtful about the operational assistance. A multi-sync of inventories from their Shopify store to other marketplaces (Amazon, for instance) seemed difficult to them.
Max from Shoxtec explains,’ Before I was using this CedCommerce integration, I was changing my inventories, manually. So if I sell on Walmart, I have to manually do that on eBay and Amazon platform”
Such issues that are dealt with manually take both time and resources.
Another underlying problem with manual inventory update, on all three of the marketplaces i.e. Amazon, eBay and Walmart, was of editing them at the same time. The unavailability of bulk editing also leads to manual product data entry. All such issues hinder a venture like Shoxtec suspension, to focus on escalating their overall operations.
‘Amazon by CedCommerce’ app has helped Shoxtec suspension in quite a few ways. Their main issue of ‘multi-marketplace inventory sync’ was not only solved. But a boom in sales orders was also witnessed. Shoxtec says, ’Now I have the CedCommerce (Amazon) integration, so all these applications (marketplaces) integrate with my Shopify store.”
An Amazon integration solution like ‘Amazon by CedCommerce’ gives sellers a near-real-time product data sync. It will increase their order attendance and quicker follow-ups. The app fits with challenging marketplaces such as Amazon.
