NetSuite, eBay create e-commerce solution for eBay high-volume sellers
NetSuite Inc., an on-demand business management software provider, has formed a significant partnership with eBay.
Working together, they have integrated San Jose, CA-based eBay's online marketplace with San Mateo, CA-based NetSuite's on-demand business management suite to provide businesses with a solution to sell items on eBay while seamlessly running their business with NetSuite.
In addition, both companies have created programs and initiatives to promote and market this integrated solution to eBay's high-volume sellers called "Power Sellers." This partnership marks the first and only on-demand solution to offer eBay auction management embedded as a sales channel along with powerful capabilities to manage all business operations such as inventory, warehouse management, accounting, direct sales, telesales, keyword marketing, e-mail marketing and site hosting. With the NetSuite eBay integration solution, high volume sellers do so much more from maximizing the visibility and placement of their products to initiating Chinese or Dutch style auctions while specifying scheduling, duration and promotions.
eBay has certified NetSuite's application as a eBay 'Certified Solution.' As part of the product partnership, NetSuite will join eBay's Certified Provider Program and eBay will join NetSuite's SuiteFlex Solutions Program. Through these programs, both NetSuite and eBay will jointly embark on marketing initiatives including promotion on each other's Web site, Webinars, newsletters and direct sales campaigns. These sales and marketing programs will convey the business value of combining online auctions with business management tools and show the growth that can be achieved while reducing overall costs.
