An important point when starting to work with marketplaces is setting up accounting. Many companies use specialized programs to account for goods, for example, 1C Trade Management, which operates by logisticians, managers processing orders, warehouse workers, etc. Data for accounting is downloaded from 1C Trade Management to 1C Accounting. Many marketplaces allow you to integrate your account via API with your accounting and warehouse software to manage product balances and automatically receive sales documents. Also, when a supplier works with several marketplaces at once, it is advisable to use a module for working with them. The module is built into the system and allows you to exchange data with trading platforms. It will be visible in the system as a separate office. The module allows you to:
- manage product cards;
- change prices;
- synchronize balance data;
- manage FBO deliveries;
- automate warehouse operations for FBS and ship orders faster;
- upload the commission agent’s report directly to 1C;
- receive and analyze data on sales, cost and turnover of goods, and business margins; plan deliveries based on sales data.
In Russia, there are now many solutions from various companies for working with several marketplaces at once in a single system associated with warehouse and accounting. This solution will help avoid mistakes and double work when entering data.
