All API Methods Needed for Comprehensive Multichannel Software
Going multichannel has already turned into a new standard of eCommerce. It allows retailers to reach up to 120% more customers through being presented at the maximum possible relevant platforms.
So nowadays retailers do not ask themselves Should I get listed on Amazon or eBay? same as they do not doubt whether to sell on a marketplace or to host an own store. They do it all simply not to get out of the race. However, it must be feeling like hell to update their product list and manage selling process on dozens of various platforms separately, so they prefer to rely on a multichannel software to automate these functions.

- Managing orders throughout all sales channels from a single screen.
