How can your business succeed as an eBay seller? I’ll show you how. But first I’ll show what happens when you try to sell on eBay without the right tools.
eBay’s Worst-Case Scenario
Picture this: Bob got an eBay account for his company and now his first customer has just purchased a product from him. “All right,” he says to himself, “time to get to work.” Unfortunately, Bob suddenly realizes he doesn’t know the first thing about actually managing his inventory or getting the requested product to his customer. In a panic, he calls his local delivery company and they ask for the product’s weight, physical dimensions and other information he has no idea about. Fear threatens to engulf him as he clutches the phone and dissolves into silent sobs.
Not a pretty sight, huh?
eBay’s Best-Case Scenario
Here’s how this story would play out if Bob used eBay inventory management software:
A customer order comes in and Bob instantly checks his inventory management software. He finds that he has several of that product in stock, so he picks one from his storage space, packages it and gives his local courier the information they need to ship it as soon as possible. Done deal!
