Inventory sync is another automation measure we’ve developed to help online merchants create a more efficient, connected presence.
(PRWEB) February 20, 2014
3dcart merchants thinking about launching more stores with shared products can now synchronize inventory between two stores thanks to a new plug-in. Once installed, a purchase on one 3dcart store updates the inventory in that store and any other stores the merchant has designated to sell that item.
Online retailers might maintain separate storefronts to offer products in different languages; target unique markets with the same products or make the most of SEO juice boosted by separate websites. Whatever the reason, the new plug-in saves time and reduces the likelihood of errors resulting from manual inventory updates.
“As 3dcart grows, we’re continually looking at more ways to make it easier for a single storeowner to create and manage a thriving online business,” says 3dcart CEO Gonzalo Gil. “Inventory sync is another automation measure we’ve developed to help online merchants create a more efficient, connected presence.”
The most popular goals an online merchant may have for separate storefronts are:
- Selling in different languages: For retailers selling in different storefronts, it’s common to set up separate websites in different languages that sport a different look and feel.
- Targeting shoppers more accurately: Some merchants just need to speak more accurately to different audience segments. They set up separate stores that may contain some of the same items, but the marketing strategy differs based on the audience.
- Dominating search rankings: Other storeowners set up separate storefronts to increase the chances of getting organic search traffic. These stores may have different URLs, designs and brand names.
