Objective- Improve business by selling vintage t-shirts on eBay
Mark was already building his brand on Shopify. He wanted to simultaneously extend his unique product range to a wider audience. For this, he needed a marketplace integration to synchronize Shopify with eBay. He expected a rise in sales while selling on eBay. In order to scale up the business, they found it difficult to individually upload products to eBay. They also wanted to manage and synchronize the inventory on both Shopify and eBay through a single dashboard.
Mark and his team soon realized that they needed an app to integrate Shopify with eBay. These features were possible with CedCommerce’s app integrations. So after reading the reviews on the Shopify app store, and researching competitors, the relationship between CedCommerce and the Legends Football Shirts began.
“We selected CedCommerce as our eBay integration service provider for a number of reasons.
- Firstly, we are a start-up, we needed a solution that had all the major features of the expensive tools, but at an affordable price.
- We also liked how many marketplaces CED integrated with, so we thought if we could master CED’s eBay integration, then we could use CED’s other apps to integrate with all the major marketplaces across the UK, US, and Asia. Adding one marketplace at a time as we grow.”- Mark.
“CED has almost all of the features you will need straight out-of-the-box, but when they don’t, their support team will help make the customizations to suit your business needs to allow you to achieve exactly what you need to be successful with this app. We personally couldn’t be happier with CED and their development team, and their efforts to tweak their app to our needs, at the fraction of the cost of more expensive tools.”- Mark.
Our team of developers created several customizations to completely automate uploading products to eBay. Shopify analytics also highlights the sales made through both Shopify and eBay.
Mark believes that CedCommerce’s customer support (Skype and Whatsapp) made all the difference for his team. He further adds that the customer support executives and developers at CedCommerce worked closely with them to get the app to work for their needs.
“The support has been fantastic, if you work collaboratively with their team, you will get the exact results you are looking for from this app. For the majority of users, the features that come straight out of the box will be enough to help scale your business with eBay, but it’s good to know that if you need the help, it will always be there.”- Mark said.
Mark is elated to say that he has doubled the sale of his vintage shirts after using CedCommerce’s integration. They also expect a further hike with the upload of a wider range of products using the CedCommerce’s app. They started getting results within the first few months of starting to use the CedCommerce’s app.
“We recommend CED to other Shopify store owners very highly.”- says Mark.
How does our app work
When the app is installed from the Shopify store, Shopify products are imported into the app first. After Profiling (available in-app), and after applying a set of rules (eBay Business Policies, categories) on particular products, they can be uploaded either by bulk-action or by selection.
Also, if you want to keep different product information on Shopify & eBay. The app provides you with features to manage products’ information separately for the eBay marketplace. You don’t need to change it from the Shopify Store. Through the BULK UPLOAD feature, you can update the products’ details in one action. Bulk Actions helps you to reduce manual work & saves time.
When the order is placed on eBay marketplace, the eBay integration app sync the order in-app and create them in your Shopify Store. You can ship the orders from Shopify store, and the app updates the shipping details on eBay marketplace.
