ChannelSpyder and ShowMeTheParts have partnered to enable ChannelSpyder retailers to feed content for the aftermarket into ChannelSpyder’s platform to start selling on marketplaces and direct channels.
The partnership provides small to midsize sellers an affordable solution to grow their channel sales business and increase profits, according to Vertical Development Inc. (VDI), provider of ShowMeTheParts software.
“Now you have access to all the tools top channel sellers use, and more, for a price that your growing parts business can afford,” the company added in a news release. “Online retailers also can leverage ChannelSpyder’s fulfillment network, in addition to their own inventory, to multiply online listings exponentially – all without adding any new staff. ChannelSpyder gives you the tools to easily scale overnight from 40 to 400 orders per day and beyond.”
Using ShowMeTheParts data together with ChannelSpyder allows parts sellers to download product data provided by ShowMeTheParts and easily map it to physical inventory at a distributor, according to VDI. Once a product is listed, the physical inventory for that part from all available suppliers can be updated automatically. When the part sells, the order is automatically sent to the fulfillment partner ready to be shipped in minutes.
“Now all automotive clients can participate in this segment and have unique content to differentiate themselves from other listings that all look and appear the same way,” VDI said. “Whether you pack and ship from your own inventory, drop-ship from a nationwide supply network, or both, you now have the tools to scale your business and compete with top-level high-volume sellers.”
