Ecommerce integration, a process that involves automating and harmonizing ecommerce activities between shopping carts, marketplaces, multiple marketplaces, comparison shopping platforms, affiliate marketplaces etc, can often get very expensive for undeniable reasons. Very often integration of shopping carts with one single marketplace or comparison shopping platform can cost as much as 800$ to 1000$ or more. This is especially when the process involves top names like Walmart, Amazon, eBay Google Shopping etc.

Spending an enormous amount as this may often get burdening for small to medium businesses making it imperative to look for avenues that help in cutting costs to manageable levels. Here are three tried and tested ways to achieve this otherwise challenging goal…

Choose affordable providers with good reputation – You may have to spend some time researching online or offline on all available options to shortlist dependable providers of ecommerce integration that offer services at price packages compatible with your interests. The good news is, it is possible to locate affordable providers that will not fail you in terms of effective and productive syncing.

Always read through the reviews and ratings of the chosen provider as posted by previous users of their services. This way, you will get a clear idea about exactly what in terms of cost quality harmony you are buying into.

Opt for buildable features in tools and softwares – Integration tools and software solutions like Magento Google Shopping integration systems etc. usually come with a list of features that cater to immediate operational requirements, secondary requisites and more. Some of the so-called ‘best’ integration tools that come at very high costs accommodate a massive set of evolved features many of which may not be of any use to sellers at the time of purchase. However, they may be relevant later when the business grows.

Therefore, when you buy an uber sophisticated tool at sky high prices and use only 50% of the available features, you are basically spending 50% more than what you should otherwise be spending. On the other hand, when you opt for buildable tools, you pay only for the features that you will use while accessing ample flexibility to improve and add on the tools as and when you require.

Check the scope of free services made available by the providers – Lastly, you should check the scope of free services that can save you money by the penny. Free trial services, add on features, free updates / tools, complimentary trouble shooting services etc. can be mentioned as examples.

There are certain things that e commerce softwares can do for you and there are certain things that they cannot. This goes out mainly to the new sellers in eBay and Amazon who somehow nurture the belief that using softwares means embracing profits overnight. Basically, if you still have to press the button to have a task accomplished, you can be rest assured that your individual manual efforts count equally with the efforts of high quality softwares that you may have installed to boost your venture.

More often than not, eBay Amazon softwares are designed to automate certain critical operational processes in these top performing marketplaces while offering additional value to the business in terms of pricing repricing assistance, enhancing performance metrics etc. However, it is imperative to know that irrespective of how amazing the chosen software solutions may be, they cannot cater to these wishes of the sellers…

No softwares guarantee profits:

To begin with, it is always good to approach softwares knowing that they can never guarantee profits to any sellers. These are the days when even the best of home appliances and tools come with ‘warrantees’ and not ‘guarantees’, so, thinking that any software can assure bringing profits to your doorsteps would be a little too much to expect. Softwares can help is automating certain critical process and offer valuable assistance at times, but never ever guarantee profits.

Thus, if you have ever wanted to badmouth a certain software in some review forum about it doing nothing to your business in terms of gains, you may want to read the fine lines carefully at first.

Softwares cannot identify fake buyers:

Sellers in eBay often wish that they could avail some sort of magic software that would start beeping when a fake / inauthentic buyer places an order. Till date, thousands of dollars have been lost to returns made by scam buyers who wish to use the products but not pay for it. Sadly, softwares with telepathic intelligence are yet to make its way to the world of e commerce. On a brighter note, there are softwares that can identify fake transactions and stop the order from processing almost instantly.

Softwares cannot guarantee first page search ranking:

Thirdly, it is always good to know that softwares can improve listing and even optimize it for the better but can never guarantee first page ranking or maximum conversions. Many sellers also believe that initiating integration process whether eBay Amazon or Magento Google Shopping or anything else for that matter, can guarantee first page ranking for their products. Basically, if there are other sellers who are making their listing / overall business strategies more interesting using the same softwares, their products may feature way ahead in comparison with yours.

Using softwares with realistic understanding of what it can do and what it cannot can help sellers improve selling strategies while enabling more intelligent usage of the same.
