Newbury, Berkshire, UK (PRWEB) June 03, 2011
In a recent shift in buying behaviour on Ebay, most sales are now fixed priced sales as Buy It Now items. Consumers are using eBay increasingly to find new products to buy, rather than just second hand bargain items. More than 57% of transactions that happen on eBay globally are at a fixed price, mostly sold by professional sellers, or high street retailers who use the site as a distribution channel. That is vastly different from the old eBay that was associated with being an auction platform for rare or used items.
EBay is no longer just a second hand car boot sale- it is a significant channel in its own right. And with the current shift in attitudes, for retailers across the UK it makes sense to be seen on one of the most popular websites on the web. Intelligent Retail's new shop software with Ebay integration makes it incredibly easy for retailers to integrate channels from the website, ebay and physical shop into one place.
Intelligent Retail has developed ‘One-Click’ technology which is used throughout the shop software. Putting items from stock onto your website is just a click away, and this concept also applies to the full Ebay integration. Intelligent Retail have created a visual stock management system, you don’t get long complicated lists of stock, just a simple stock tree.
Part of the difficulty in selling on Ebay is the administration, as adding and managing items can be very time consuming. Now, the new shop software from Intelligent Retail makes it very easy, putting the retailer in control. Just drag and drop products into a channel and the Connect EPoS system will list them on that channel and manage the stock. It will inform the retailer when products have been sold, bringing the order back to the Connect Fulfilment Centre.
David Mackley, Managing Director said: “Implementing our system has three development phases. Firstly we can dramatically improve much of the day to day process such as stock replenishment. This saves time for more productive activities. Secondly our Flight Deck is used for instant management information to save money on stock or track how well sales assistants are doing across the EPoS eCommerce system. Thirdly we help retailers access new customers through total integration with the internet, eBay and Amazon.”
With things always changing rapidly online, Intelligent Retail's new Multichannel Centre keeps up with the ever-changing climate whilst keeping the EPoS solution easy to use for retailers.
Intelligent Retail was established in 2004, and now helps hundreds of shops across the UK reap the rewards of improved profitability from increased revenue and reduced costs. They have won many awards over the years including innovation awards over several years, and Best Multichannel System in 2009.
