CCVShop.jpg

Nowadays, a product data feed is a basic requirement for selling or advertising products online. All marketplaces or product advertising services are demanding a specific data feed capable of meeting their requirements and specifications. For most of the marketplaces, the API integration with order synchronization might be a must-have.

The API integration with order synchronization allows you to sync your product data immediately and transfer all your marketplace orders into your CCV Shop store. All orders from connected marketplaces may be handled directly in your CCV store, your store stock information is updated automatically.

There are so many apps you can use to connect various marketplaces. Unfortunately, not all of them may fulfill your needs at a reasonable price. Finding the right app for a specific marketplace might be a challenging and time-consuming task. In order to clarify the options available on the market and save you countless hours of your time, in this article, we are analyzing 6 different provider apps available in the CCV Shop apps store.

How can a marketplace app improve sales?

You may be asking yourself: Why should I use a marketplace app? What requirements should the app be meeting? How to select the most appropriate one? Certainly, marketplace app will help you connect your store to the selected marketplace. However, some advanced features such as product and category filtering, API connection, order synchronization or data transformation options might be offered by a reduced number of marketplace integration providers.

The advanced features can make a real difference, reducing your costs and boosting your store sales effortlessly. To sum it up, a marketplace app should help you to achieve 3 main goals:

  • Meet the data feed requirements: Each marketplace has its own requirements, mandatory attributes, and specific taxonomies. An API integration enables you to fulfill all the channel requirements the most effective way. Additionally, it should be offering the possibility to select and transform your current data in order to customize the information the marketplace receives.
  • Improve your product data: The better a product data is the more likely your sales will grow. A marketplace app should be providing a great number of optimization tools for you to take the most of your existing catalog information. For instance, it should give you the possibility to optimize parts of your existing catalog with no need to alter a single comma at your CCV store level. Titles, descriptions, labels, prices, discounts, shipping costs are just some of the attributes that may need to be optimized for every selling channel. In order to achieve a good optimization, the marketplace app will need to offer as many advanced tools as possible; conditionals, advanced filtering options, attribute composition or the use of regular expressions are definitely a must-have when it comes to optimizing your data feed.
  • Fulfill marketplace orders directly in your CCV store: The order synchronization will import all your marketplace orders next to your CCV orders. It gives you the ability to control all your orders, transfer shipment data (e.g. tracking number) from the store to the marketplace and fulfill or cancel your marketplace orders directly in your CCV store. Your store becomes a single integration point with always up-to-date stock information. This leads to the minimum number of orders of your out of stock products, to better merchants rating and more sales at the marketplace.

What app I can use for Bol.com or Beslist.nl?

As you may all know Bol.com is the leading marketplace in the Netherlands for books, electronics, toys, and many other product categories. Beslist.nl is not that big yet but it’s growing fast. In case your target market is the Netherlands or even Belgium, you should start selling on both marketplaces as soon as possible. They’ll make your store sales grow exponentially as soon as your products are offered, thousands of merchants cannot be wrong about it.
