Omnichannel E-commerce

Amazon and eBay have the potential to connect you to millions of consumers.

The easiest way to start a Natural Products business is to send your inventory in bulk to an Amazon fulfillment center. As your orders come in, Amazon then packages and ships each individual order for you.

Of course, you can also ship Amazon and eBay sales yourself.

Both marketplaces are supported out-of-the box.

This can include not only individual ingredients used in your customer's product formulas but also the individual container parts and shipping materials needed to complete them. With optional scanner support and barcode generation to simplify your batch production, you can streamline your manufacturing processes while accurately maintaining your inventory counts.
