Any small business owners/employees here who can recommend an eCommerce solution? Specifically one that will list automatically on eBay & Amazon?
We currently don't have an online shop of our own but list on eBay using GarageSale software on Mac. It's OK software but is meant for single-users only (we use it on multiple computers but it's a bit of a bodge) and obviously only targets eBay.
We really don't have much time to devote to online sales at the moment but the eBay listings are generating a bit of momentum to the point where on a good week it's a few hundred pounds worth of sales for about 5 minutes work administrating the listings. I think if we spent a few hours a week we could see a really worthwhile return but I'd like it all to be as quick & easy as possible (most of the admin will be done by not too techy people)!
The ideal software at the moment would be something similar but more suited to multiple users and able to target Amazon as well. Standalone software preferable but I get the feeling it will have to be a web-based solution (with a monthly fee).
I've had a bit of a google and found a web-app called Magneto (which is owned by eBay) that sounds ideal. There seems to be a free open-source version you can host on your own server or a hosted version for a tenner a month (which is fine). It is meant to be for having your own online shop but there seems to be a company (M2E Pro) offering a free extension to integrate Magneto into eBay & Amazon. Plus we'd get a regular online shop as well as a bonus. Does anyone know anything about this system or (even better) actually use it?
There seem to be a lot of other similar systems but they are all either more expensive or charge an additional fee for eBay/Amazon integration.
Any ideas/comments? Thanks!
