eBay Inventory Management for multichannel sellers
eBay Inventory Management Software For Your Growing Business
Allow Finale Inventory to easily track of inventory stock levels so you can focus on the other aspects of your business
Finale has the ability to manage your inventory from your eBay orders from two common configurations. The first configuration allows for a direct connection between your eBay store(s) and Finale. eBay orders are automatically synced to Finale where it will make the proper stock adjustments.
With the eBay inventory management solution, any quantity changes resulting from a stock operation (e.g. positive adjustments from a PO shipment or a negative adjustment to a sales shipment) will be updated to your fixed priced eBay listings within five minutes to prevent overselling.
A common pattern for e-commerce companies using ShipStation or ShippingEasy is to accept orders from several marketplaces like Walmart, Amazon, or a company’s own website, and to manage the warehouse shipment process of those orders using ShipStation, marking the orders as shipped when done. Nowhere in this process, however, is a record kept of how many items a company has on hand at any given time.
If your company has this shipping process, you can add Finale Inventory to keep track of your stock on hand without changing anything about your existing shipping process. Using ShipStation’s API, Finale communicates with ShipStation behind the scenes to watch the orders that are marked complete, and to copy those orders into Finale to record that the items have been removed from inventory. Finale will then auto-update stock levels on your eBay marketplace.
Benefits Using Finale’s eBay Inventory Management Solution
There are many benefits to using Finale Inventory as your eBay Inventory Management solution.
Auto Update your eBay Listing. With the eBay inventory management solution, Finale will manage customer orders from eBay and other channels. Finale will keep track of all stock levels and will auto-update stock levels back to stock quantities to eBay and across other channels every 5 minutes. Finale will also be optionally configured to update fulfillment latency (DispatchTimeMax) to your Amazon listings.

Push Supplier Qty and Lead Times when you run out of stock. Every company strives to have a low buffer of stock to minimize inventory holding costs. Sellers collaborate closely with their suppliers and factor in delivery time to attempt to ensure new product shipments before stock run out.
If sophisticated sellers can receive a product data file or a data feed from vendors, sellers will leverage Finale to push supplier qty and lead times to eBay so they do not turn their Amazon listing when they run out stock.
Restock Forecasting. Running a growing business is hard. There’s a lot you have to keep up with. Leveraging the sales velocity of a product, Finale will automatically calculate dynamic reorder points based on your inputs – supplier lead time, desired safety stock, and expected sales growth — to make smarter, faster purchasing decisions.
Restock forecasting from Finale gives you one less thing to worry about. When your inventory gets low, we’ll send you an alert letting you know it’s time to send out a purchase order. You can email the purchase order directly from Finale, and when you receive your shipment with Finale, Finale will update all your channels with the will be updated stock quantities.
Simple Integration. Integration with Finale Inventory literally takes seconds to set-up. The only piece of information required is your ShipStation login credentials. There are NO changes required to your current ShipStation configuration to immediately start syncing orders to Finale Inventory and effectively managing your inventory as your eBay inventory management solution.
Multiple Marketplace Support. Effectively manage your inventory from multiple marketplaces (e.g. Etsy, Walmart, Amazon, and Magento) via ShipStation. We support every marketplace ShipStation supports. When ShipStation adds a new marketplace, we will automatically support it.
Support allowing multiple SKUs for a unique Product ID. When you are selling products in different marketplaces (e.g. Amazon and eBay), you may be forced to have different SKUs for the same product. Many customers manage this unnecessary complexity with Excel worksheets. Finale Inventory handles this with a couple mouse clicks and properly keeps tracks on your inventory.
Support High Transaction Volumes. Conduct a large number of transactions? No problem. Finale Inventory can support up to 50K transactions per month, and we are currently scaling our architecture to support even higher volumes. High transaction customers should be considering leveraging our integrated turnkey mobile barcode solution to decrease warehouse operations times from receiving and picking while improving accuracy.
Multiple Shipping Location Support. Easily manage your inventory across multiple shipping warehouses from Finale Inventory.
Product Kitting. Present more selling options to your prospective customers by setting up kits or bundles from your existing products.
Avoid Stock Outs. With advance order management reordering capability, keep your business humming along by creating product count thresholds to know what needs to be reordered to avoid costly stock-outs. Finale can also be configured to calculate reordering levels based on sales velocity and other inputs such as supplier lead time.
Status Change Automation. When products are back ordered, orders containing those products are typically marked as “On Hold” in ShipStation. When those products are received in your warehouse and recorded in Finale, Finale will automatically change the order status from “On Hold” to “Waiting” in ShipStation.
