70+ Integrations with You at the Center

Build your business your way. Unify adjusts accordingly

I’m often asked how we’re able make so many marketplaces, platforms, and business systems all work together seamlessly. As you know, a lot of companies talk about integration but many of those fall short.

When I have an initial conversation with a potential integration partner, they usually ask about our API so they can figure out how to make it work with their platform. That’s when I tell them that we actually do all the building in order to integrate their platform into an already established workflow. Webgility's cup runneth over with #ecommerce #integrations. Here's why. #unify #sellbabysell Click To TweetWe’re not just opening up things and hoping the customer will figure out how to use our system from the outside—we control the integrity, we control the user experience, we control the entire workflow. What that really means is that we do the hard work to build the feature set that accommodates the needs of the e-commerce seller, not the needs of [insert your favorite platform or marketplace here].

“Should I Sell on Marketplaces?”

Should I Sell on Marketplaces?

Inquiring minds want to know. Finally here’s an honest answer

I’m often asked, “Should I be selling my products on marketplaces?” For some that’s a loaded topic that opens up deeper questions about diluting your brand, potentially losing margin, and opening yourself up to copycats. We could go on for days, but I like a simpler approach.“Should I sell on #marketplaces?” Here’s your answer. @Amazon @eBay @Etsy @Magento Click To Tweet

I say, yes, sell on marketplaces, like Amazon or eBay, and here’s why. Everyone should experiment with this sales model because there’s lots to learn from it, but it shouldn’t be the only strategy. Everyone knows it’s not wise to build a house on land that’s owned by someone else. Also, it’s good to diversify. So, if you’re going to build an e-commerce business and all of your sales are driven by a single marketplace, don’t be surprised if, in a few years, the rules of the game change and you no longer can sell on that channel. Or don’t be caught off guard when the terms change or the fees go up. Be smart. Absolutely, sell on a marketplace or multiple marketplaces, but learn from the experience and from the fierce competition. From there, take the necessary steps to grow your business and grab your own piece of e-commerce property by developing your own online store. Read more about selling smart online.
