It doesn’t take folks long if they are selling on Amazon, or ebay, Play and fnac for that matter, to realise that it’s important to get automated and get organised. That’s where the marketplace management system, Seller Dynamics, comes in – it deals with the complex interfaces between the retailer and the various peculiarities of the markets. It takes away the inefficiencies of having to cope with a myriad of different things.
Order handling is different, uploading stock and SKUs is different and when it comes to the critical element of re-pricing, Amazon repricing, is different from the other re-pricing interfaces. All very complicated – but all handled by suitable system which simplies the whole process and lets you concentrate on retail as opposed to software systems. Hence Seller Dynamics.
From time to time though, back office things might arise. These are things which require a bit more thought and are custom to your business. Maybe there is a connection to a legacy system required, maybe warehousing need something a bit special, or perhaps goods-in need a bit more love.
For situations like those it’s important that the system can be customised, and that is where the API from Seller Dynamics comes in. The Seller Dynamics API, or Application Programming Interface, allows programmers to add in that last 1cm of functionality if something really special is required. So if the warehouse folks need a piece of data that seems a bit out of the ordinary, then it’s a simple matter of pulling that together. Many internal IT teams can do that on their own, in fact we find that that is normally the case. In other cases the team at Seller Dynamics will help out. The important thing is that adding in those last little custom elements, that are peculiar to you, can be pretty simple.
And the nature of the team at Seller Dynamics is such that if they see a request coming in that sounds like it should be part of the overall system we’ll add it to the development list.
