Potential client request. Sports memorabilia seller on amazon and ebay. He wants a new site and to be able to list products on the site and that automatically will list the product on his Amazon and ebay seller accounts.

Is there anything off the shelf that will do this?

There are a few. Linnworks.

They offer free trial so you can see if it does the doo.

Must be loads of SaaS ones too.

Last I checked Shopify has the easiest three way integration website/Amazon/eBay.  Does the client want it all to run off of one integrated inventory, or do they just want to copy listings from one market to the other?

Thanks for the input everyone.

They want to maintain products on the website and have that automatically update to Amazon/ebay.

Did you say what shop platform?

Linnworks do.

If Magento I think Store Manager does it. I recommend this application. Not SaaS though. Desktop app.

There is no current platform. The client uses the two stores manually and is asking what it would take to build this.

I have a client who uses Celerant. It does the job and integrates the POS system in his store with his online catalog with his Amazon catalog.

His legacy version requires a dedicated server, but it looks like new installs would be cloud-based. But at $250/month ($350 if you want POS integration), you can get a lot of Shopify for that price.

I think LM is right - Shopify is probably the past of least resistance. You can integrate your POS, online store and Amazon inventory.

How many SKUs?

If low, Woo gets my vote.

Yeah we usually go Woo for 100 items or less. This is ~2k.

I also have a client on Webgility. I didn't think of it, because he uses it only for integrating Quickbooks with his web sales.

But they do inventory management with Amazon
https://www.webgility.com/integrations/amazon-inventory-management-software
https://www.webgility.com/blog/its-official-amazon-has-been-webgilified/

We've had good experiences with their support. If the integration breaks (i.e. one endpoint or the other changes), they usually can sort it out.

Webgility is NOT a website platform, though. It is a utility that lets you take any platform they support and tie it to any other. Think of it more like ITTT or Zapier for e-commerce. Quite a few integrations though:

At 2000 Mag 2 gets my vote.

Store Manager is really great for bulk changes.

Xtento for feed output to Google / FB

Too restrictive on Shopify/bigcommerce etc.
