A quick look at ChannelAdvisor
ChannelAdvisor is a multichannel sales platform that eCommerce stores use to build digital storefronts, connect channels, and manage orders and fulfillment. It’s a leading option for individual brands as well as retailers that need a single version of truth for their operations. You can integrate with third parties like Red Stag Fulfillment to support shipping for ChannelAdvisor channels such as Amazon, eBay, Facebook, Google, and hundreds more.
Many brands now leverage ChannelAdvisor because of its shoppable media and tracking support, allowing you to branch out to new channels or even incorporate brick-and-mortar retail locations. The brand analytics tools help you address distribution concerns and monitor channels for brand reputational harm. It’s a robust platform with deep tech capabilities, including an ability to integrate with a broad range of partners. If you’ve got a CRM, look for companies that can integrate with both.
Native shipping for ChannelAdvisor
The ChannelAdvisor platform has a broad suite of tools and services to help you manage orders and fulfillment. These fulfillment-specific tools are designed to work with partners like Red Stag so you can quickly integrate for support.
According to the company’s developer pages, there are options for designating carrier requirements, delivery status, tracking numbers, and other elements important for order management. However, many choose to work with partners like Red Stag because of challenges with these options and fulfillment needs. For example, according to the company, “ChannelAdvisor does not link the tracking number to a carrier or class, and no link is made to a carrier’s site, and as a result, cannot update the DeliveryStatus on the seller’s behalf.”
That means you’ll need to do some significant development on your own to create and use tracking details in ways necessary to your customers and your analytics or sales teams. Business development leads often rely on operations professionals like you to ensure data flows freely. Working with partners like us can help eliminate silos and avoid barriers in some native software elements. Let’s look at how Red Stag approaches ChannelAdvisor and similar platforms.
Prioritizing automation and rapid fulfillment
Shipping for ChannelAdvisor and other eCommerce storefronts must put speed and accuracy at the top of the list. For us at Red Stag, accuracy means getting the right products in each order, applying the right label, and choosing the right carrier for shipping based on your preferences.
Integrating ChannelAdvisor with Red Stag enables you to align fulfillment and shipping with order and inventory management across our multiple warehouse locations. That way, you’re funneling all orders to us and we’re filling for every channel you use. There are no more silos or struggles to keep inventory counts updated with various order platforms.
Red Stag’s automation efforts help you consolidate everything into your ChannelAdvisor dashboards, making it easy to see, create, or cancel orders. You can tag elements independent of our system, supporting your analytics. At the same time, it’s easy to update information or contact our support teams to address any concerns.
