eBay Inventory Management for multichannel sellers

eBay Inventory Management Software For Your Growing Business

Allow Finale Inventory to easily track inventory stock levels so you can focus on the other aspects of your business

If you sell on eBay, you need to manage your inventory and order fulfillment. Finale helps you do both. You can connect your eBay store(s) to Finale so that sales automatically sync. Finale makes proper stock adjustments based on your fixed-price sales to help you avoid overselling.

Finale's shipping integrations also make the fulfillment of eBay orders easier than ever, especially if you leverage Shipstation or ShippingEasy for your fulfillment needs. For example, you may use ShipStation to keep track of orders from multiple marketplaces, including Walmart, eBay, and your own website. ShipStation manages the warehouse shipping process, so every order gets marked as shipped once you send it out.


While ShipStation doesn't keep tabs on your inventory, Finale fills in the gap. You can add Finale Inventory to keep track of your company's stock without altering your shipping process. Our software communicates with ShipStation so that orders get copied into Finale and your inventory is constantly up-to-date. The software then auto-updates your stock on your eBay marketplace for a better customer experience.

The integration is seamless and smooth, so you don't miss a beat, have stock-outs, or experience delayed shipments. Skip spreadsheets and confusion from selling on multiple platforms at once with Finale, which integrates all your sales from various platforms into a single, responsible inventory control solution.


Multiple eBay Software Integration Options

Finale Inventory eBay inventory management software offers a more robust array of integration options compared to competing products on the market. You'll have more choices for the virtual shopping carts you provide to your customers for completing transactions seamlessly and securely. You can also pick from several integrations for point of sale (POS) systems.

Other areas compatible with our eBay inventory control software include channel management, shipping, accounting, and exports.

Benefits of 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 five minutes. Finale will also be optionally configured to update fulfillment latency (DispatchTimeMax) to your Amazon listings.

Push Supplier Quantity 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 quantity and lead times to eBay so they do not turn their Amazon listing when they run out of 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 of mouse clicks and properly keeps track of your inventory. You'll prevent the confusion that can accompany having multiple SKUs for the same item and avoid potentially costly inventory management mistakes. These process improvements lead to better results when selling on eBay and other marketplaces simultaneously.

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.

This eBay inventory control software feature can also benefit you if you plan to scale your business to meet increasing demand. You'll be able to accommodate the growth and ramp up your shipping operations without missing a beat. This proactive system ensures your company is well-positioned for present and future success.

Multiple Shipping Location Support. As your eBay business grows and prospers, you'll likely need to ship goods from several locations to meet demand and optimize customer service. Without a reliable software platform, you could experience unexpected out-of-stock items, misdirected shipments, or other issues that result in dissatisfied customers, lost sales, and retention problems.

Finale Inventory can alleviate these challenges and other potential issues by allowing you to easily manage your inventory across multiple shipping warehouses from Finale Inventory. You'll increase efficiency while providing the excellent service your customers demand and expect.

Product Kitting. Present more selling options to your prospective customers by setting up kits or bundles from your existing products. Pre-assembled kits group complementary products together so you can sell them under one SKU, allowing you to generate additional sales and reduce the volume of unique multi-item orders that warehouse workers must prepare.

Customers also like kitting because it enables them to get more products at a lower unit cost, fill multiple needs with a single purchase, and enjoy a more exciting unboxing experience.

Our eBay automation software helps control and manage the kitting process more efficiently while reducing inventory and shipping costs.

Avoid Stock Outs. Few things are more frustrating to eBay customers than placing an order for an item they want, only to discover that it's out of stock. They'll quickly look for another supplier - and may think twice about visiting your e-commerce store again.

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.

Simple and Powerful

"It's everything you need an inventory software to do simply and easily without bloat or unnecessary features. Finale integrates seamlessly with all our sales channels and works perfectly all the time. We have multiple warehouses. Before Finale, I used to have to manually update this inventory from multiple spreadsheets...it took about 4 hours every week. Now the same exact task takes me about 4 minutes and I do it daily. We are have increased accuracy with less work. The single best feature about Finale is the product lookups that allow you to match multiple sku variations to one primary sku"

"Finale can tackle the challenges facing eCommerce Businesses with an ease that I cannot believe. Many eCommerce businesses face challenges from many different aspects of the sales/inventory flow; here at Bapmic Auto Parts Inc., we were no exception. As a large company with channels in eBayAmazonWalmart, and local sales, we desperately needed a robust and coherent warehouse/sales management system.  Honestly, we have seen a 100% or more efficiency increase in daily operations since taking on Finale. Every aspect of our eCommerce business was improved by the implementation of the software."
