The Power of eCommerce Integration

Expanding your presence across multiple marketplaces is a smart strategy for any eCommerce business. However, managing and updating your product listings on different platforms can be a time-consuming and daunting task. This is where Wherehouse comes to the rescue. We offer deeply customisable integration functionalities that simplify the process of multi-marketplace management.

Takealot to Makro: A Seamless Transition

One of the standout features of Wherehouse is the ability to effortlessly migrate your product listings from Takealot to Makro. Here's how it works:
  1. Product Attributes Transfer: Wherehouse can automatically extract the product attributes and images from your existing Takealot listings.
  1. Makro Loadsheet Generation: Once your product attributes and images are retrieved, Wherehouse generates a Makro loadsheet, ready for upload. This loadsheet simplifies the process of adding your products to Makro Marketplace, ensuring your products are listed correctly and efficiently.

The integration of Wherehouse with marketplaces offer a range of additional advantages, making it a game-changer for your eCommerce business.

    1️⃣ Automatic Stock Sync

    When you integrate your marketplaces with Wherehouse, you unlock the power of automatic stock sync. Managing stock levels across multiple platforms can be a real headache, but Wherehouse simplifies this process. Your product stock will sync automatically to all platforms (online store(s) and marketplaces) when a change is made one of the platform. For example, as sales occur on Makro, your stock will be updated on Takealot.
    This means you can keep your stock levels up to date without manual intervention, ensuring that you never oversell or undersell your products.

    2️⃣ Efficient Order Management

    Our Dashboard provides you with an omni-channel view of the entire order life-cycle. Orders placed on Makro/Takealot can automatically create records in your preferred destination systems. This means you can efficiently manage orders from multiple marketplaces without the need for manual data entry.
    With Wherehouse, you'll have complete control and visibility over your sales pipeline.

    3️⃣ Dynamic Pricing Rules

    Pricing is a critical element of your eCommerce strategy, and different marketplaces may require different pricing strategies. Wherehouse allows you to set dynamic pricing rules on a per-platform basis.
    This level of control empowers you to optimise your product offerings for maximum profitability and market competitiveness.

    In Conclusion

    Integrating your marketplaces with Wherehouse is a strategic move to enhance your eCommerce operations, increase efficiency, and reach a wider audience. With these added benefits, you can take your eCommerce business to new heights and make the most of the expanding opportunities in the South African eCommerce landscape.
