Intelligent Retail Announces Full Ebay Integration with EPoS System

May 26, 2011 (PRLEAP.COM) Technology News
Multichannel EPoS company, Intelligent Retail, are preparing to launch their new EPoS System feature - full integration with website giant, Ebay. The full integration involves an easy 'drag and drop' feature, making it very simple for retailers who are interested in growing the reach of their business.

New figures reveal that, for the first time, most sales on eBay are fixed priced sales as Buy It Now items. Consumers are using eBay increasingly to find new products to buy, rather than just second hand bargain items.

Ebay has been through a fundamental transformation over the past few years. More than 57% of transactions that happen on eBay globally are at a fixed price, mostly sold by professional sellers, or high street retailers who use the site as a distribution channel. That is a far cry from the old eBay that was associated with being an auction platform for rare or used items.

Ebay is no longer just a second hand car boot sale- it is a significant channel in its own right. And with the current shift in attitudes, for retailers across the UK it makes sense to be seen on one of the most popular websites on the web. Intelligent Retail's new EPoS system with Ebay integration makes it incredibly easy for retailers to integrate channels from the website, ebay and physical shop into one place.

Part of the difficulty in selling on Ebay is the administration, as adding and managing items can be very time consuming. Now, the new Connect Multichannel Centre makes it very easy, putting the retailer in control. Just drag and drop products into a channel and the Connect EPoS system will list them on that channel and manage the stock. It will inform the retailer when products have been sold, bringing the order back to the Connect Fulfilment Centre.

By having your EPOS system, website and Ebay working together, it's much easier to manage stock levels and track sales. The new EPoS system from Intelligent Retail has been built with the full intention of saving time and hassle, letting retailers focus on moving their business forward.

With things always changing rapidly online, Intelligent Retail's new Multichannel Centre keeps up with the ever-changing climate whilst keeping the EPoS solution easy to use for retailers.

Intelligent Retail was established in 2004, and now helps hundreds of shops across the UK reap the rewards of improved profitability from increased revenue and reduced costs. They have won many awards over the years including innovation awards over several years, and Best Multichannel System in 2009.
