ChannelAdvisor (NYSE:ECOM), a leading provider of cloud-based e-commerce solutions that enable retailers and manufacturers to increase global sales, today announced the launch of its integration with Tesco’s marketplace, offering selected ChannelAdvisor customers the opportunity to work with one of the UK’s leading retailers. ChannelAdvisor is the first solution provider to announce full support for Tesco marketplace.
“We are very proud to announce our partnership with such a recognizable, global brand,” commented Link Walls, vice president of product management at ChannelAdvisor. “With one of the most popular websites in the UK, Tesco’s marketplace is a logical and exciting expansion opportunity for selected retailers who fit well with Tesco’s marketplace strategy. We believe this integration is a testament to our continued investment in expanding the online reach of our customers on a global basis, and as Tesco’s first fully integrated partner, we are blazing new trails in the European online retail landscape.”
“By adding Tesco to its platform, ChannelAdvisor allows us to offer Tesco’s large, savvy customer base, brands and products they could not access on Tesco Direct until now,” commented David Epstein, e-commerce director at Watch Warehouse. “We are already successfully using ChannelAdvisor’s Marketplaces solution and were looking for new ways to gain additional exposure online and develop new revenue channels. We were excited to be invited to sell on the Tesco marketplace and are delighted with the results.”
Through a single inventory feed, ChannelAdvisor customers can manage their overall online selling process, from listing to order management, from one platform. This saves a significant amount of time and hassle, and allows retailers to focus on what really matters to customers. Tesco is one of several marketplaces available to ChannelAdvisor customers globally.“We are thrilled to be working with a strategic partner like ChannelAdvisor,” commented Ian Caminsky, Partnership and Business Development Director at Tesco. “Through ChannelAdvisor, retailers have a simplified integration process with our marketplace, giving them more time to focus on providing great range and customer service. As a result, we can offer our customers more products at great value, with the added convenience of being able to pick up orders from our stores via Click & Collect. Finally, customers ordering from retailers on the Tesco marketplace will continue to earn Clubcard points, but on a much wider selection of brands and products than ever before.”
