Sometimes you don't have all the functionality you need in the API, but you can still work around this to achieve a result. This is where custom scripts can come into play.
For example, what if your key supplier has a great website with regular updates to new products, but they're unable to provide a data file or API? All the data is online for you to see, but you have to manually go through each page and copy the data.
Building a custom script to automate this is very possible. We can take that manual examination of each page you undertake, and turn it into an automated daily script. Each day, rather than check their website for updates and new product, you can have all data turned into an excel file. This makes it far easier to upload the data for new listings, make changes to stock, and numerous other activities.
Scripts can also move data around internally and apply routine edits or updates you otherwise need to handle manually. You might be pleasantly surprised just how many of your manual actions taking up your time might be possible to automate and streamline, so your energy and focus can be on other things.
Everyone needs a website these days. Different websites should be focused and built to achieve different goals. For any business, having a website is essential. It's simply too easy and too important to risk skipping it.
If you're selling on marketplaces, a website can be a useful way to build your own client base. Better margins, controlling the customer journey, and diversifying your revenue streams are all important to growing a stable company. If you risk going out of business due to an eBay or Amazon suspension, you need to consider a website and building your own customer base.
Websites also help centralise data and offer a means of streamlining connections and actions. If you built all your data on your website, and use tools to connect it to eBay, Amazon and other channels, you need only to build and update in one place. The rest get updated via systems and connections.
We challenge you to find a profession or company that would not benefit from a website! And a five figure investment, and weeks of your time, are not needed to get one set up.
