eCommerce Inventory Management
Manage Centralised Inventory Across
Amazon, Flipkart, Myntra, Snapdeal and 50+ channels!
As your orders flow from different channels, you can maintain common inventory across channels with Browntape’s ecommerce inventory management software.
For example, if you get an order from Flipkart for an SKU, its inventory is reduced in Browntape and the latest inventory is updated to all other channels such as Amazon, Paytm Mall & other channels.
Create your Product List in Excel & Upload to Browntape
First step of inventory management is to setup the products with SKU codes in Browntape Software. It can be easily done via the bulk upload feature, but you can add them one by one too. We can also import your product listings into our inventory management system with just one click.
Different SKU Codes on Flipkart & Snapdeal? SKU Aliases come to Rescue
At times, we don’t pay attention to SKU codes while listing on ecommerce portals. Ultimately, you end up with different SKU codes on different channels and it’s hard to change them later. Browntape stock management software allows you to specify as many Aliases to an SKU code and link them together. It also manages inventory sync seamlessly to all Aliases.
How many Listings are Live on each Channel
Manually checking if all SKUs are active or inactive on multiple portals is a time consuming task. We can help you keep a track of your listings and avoid losing visibility. Browntape inventory software fetches the status of entire listings from all portals every 24 hours and shows you a report. You can act on channels where your listings are not live.
Add Stock, Adjust Stock. We keep a Record
Stock can be reduced by an order or by someone in your staff who made a stock adjustment. Our inventory management software allows these stock changes to be done easily and also maintains a record of each change. Think of it as a Stock Ledger for each SKU for inventory management.
Multi-Warehousing Support. Amazon FBA Support.
Have stock in multiple warehouses? no problem. Browntape allows you to create multiple warehouses and allocate orders to any of them based on your business rules. Inventory for each SKU in each warehouse is maintained separately.
This feature is particularly useful for inventory management in Amazon FBA which is supported by Browntape.
PROS AND CONS OF SELLING MULTIPLE ONLINE SITES
Why sell on multiple online stores?
As the sales for an online store grow, the obvious choice for a seller is to start selling on multiple online marketplaces like ebay, amazon, play.com, flipkart, snapdeal, etc. The benefits of selling on multiple stores:
- Tap in to the traffic coming to the individual online marketplaces
- Sell on your own store to build a brand name
- Increase sales
- Protect yourself from unexpected interruptions on one store
Why are multi-channel sales difficult?
When the seller thinks of expanding his business by selling on multiple online stores, he is faced with numerous hassles. Things that he had to do for one store now need to be done for two. The list of such hassles include:
- Log in to multiple online stores separately
- Create listings for the products on each store individually
- Manage the stock on each of the online stores
- Collect the orders for the day from each online store to fulfil them
- Post back the tracking information on the websites
