Today we’re continuing our WooCommerce plugin series and we take a look at a service that allows you to link and fully integrate your WooCommerce store with Amazon.
Following on from yesterday’s post about increasing traffic to your WooCommerce store, today we take a look at another WooCommerce plugin and service that could be a huge source of untapped traffic and revenue for your WooCommerce store.
When it comes to increasing your eCommerce traffic and revenue it’s hard to look past Amazon. The undisputed king of the eCommerce universe is increasingly becoming a major source of revenue for smaller eCommerce players who want to sell on Amazon. Many people aren’t even aware that it’s possible to sell your own products on Amazon. Not only it this possible, but it’s Amazon biggest source of revenue growth right now.
Integrating WooCommerce with Amazon
As the owner of an eCommerce website powered by WooCommerce who is interested in selling your products on Amazon you are probably wondering how you might deal with the headache of managing 2 sets of stocks, 2 sources of orders, 2 catalogs etc. The problem becomes even more complicated when you also consider selling your products on eBay!
Veeqo promises to solve these real challenges and seamlessly integrate your WooCommerce and Amazon stores. Veeqo is a middleman between your WooCommerce and Amazon stores. In essence, Veeqo becomes your master database for products, orders and stocks.
So how does Veeqo work?
- Orders sync happens every 10 minutes
- Product catalog sync happens every 30 minutes
- Stock sync happens in real time
As someone who has worked on countless eCommerce systems integration projects over the past decade, this is an impressive starting point for Veeqo. eCommerce systems integration is hard and easy to fuck up. If they’ve nailed this as a starting position this is worth tens of thousands of dollars to bigger eCommerce merchants in saved administration costs . Veeqo has a ton of other features and a very well designed user interface.
If you’re serious about selling tons of products via the Amazon marketplace I wouldn’t even dream of starting a project like that without having something like Veeqo in place from day one. I’ve seen too many eCommerce store owners do it the hard way and try to manage this manually at the start and then end up in an administration quagmire once they start to achieve momentum. The entry price plan starts at £60 per month which is a fraction of the cost of doing this manually – trust me!
I’d love to hear from anyone who has been using WooCommerce and Veeqo in the wild – just drop us a line to firstname.lastname@example.org if you’d like to share your experiences.
