e-ProductPlug Now Supporting Shopify Merchants

e-ProductPlug Announces Integration with Shopify

Are you one of Shopify’s merchants? If so we have great news for you!
e-ProductPlug is ready and available to you in the Shopify app store…and you’ll love it!

For years, e-Commerce Merchants have had to struggle by manually inputting and updating their supplier’s product data onto their websites, picking through spreadsheets to find discontinued items and manually add in new products…until now.

Designed as a web-based plug-in for your e-Commerce store, e-ProductPlug is a simple yet powerful product data and inventory management tool that can be found in Shopify’s app store. E-ProductPlug automates and updates your dropship and/or virtual inventory product data in your online store by “plugging-in” directly to your vendor’s product data feeds and pushes the data directly into your site automatically- up to three times a day. So say Goodbye to the tedious task of dealing with spreadsheets, overselling and tracking down inventory, and canceling orders…and say Hello to an average of 10 extra hours a week!

“Shopify is one of the leading shopping cart platforms for online retailers and we are excited to be integrated with them and are ready to help their Merchants gear up for the holiday season,” shares Michelle Beaudet-Smith, CEO and Founder of e-ProductPlug. “We are thrilled to announce a special ‘Variant’ plug that we created just for Shopify merchants with variant product options – perfect for stores selling apparel, jewelry, shoes, handbags and more. This new Variant plug will automate adding the product variants from their product data feed such as size and color. Imagine the time and manual input errors that will be saved! This new plug feature aligns directly with our mission of delivering innovative solutions for our Shopify clients from ‘Newbies’ looking to get off the ground and add new products quickly, to ‘Experienced Merchants’ who want to scale and add more products.”

E-ProductPlug is a product content and inventory management tool for online retail website owners that can sync their supplier’s inventory and product data and automatically to add in new products, update existing product content, and pinpoint discontinued items. No more working with spreadsheets, hiring expensive developers, or spending hours manually inputting data. All of that can be resolved with our app- for less than $2 a day! The advanced features in e-ProductPlug make it much more valuable to e-commerce merchants than just simply transferring data such as a powerful mapping engine, filtering tool, and field optimization rules to tweak the data and make the products ready to sell. Check us out in Shopify’s app store and begin a 10-day (credit-card free) trial today!

Best Practice Data Fields for eCommerce Files

An important goal for your e-Commerce website should be to AUTOMATE as much as possible…DON’T GET CAUGHT IN SPREADSHEET HELL! When sourcing out Suppliers to work with, it’s important to vet them out to ensure a smooth  partnership. Take the time to ask them these questions regarding their product catalog:

  • Do you provide a data feed with your latest products to include at least the required and Spreadsheet-Hell1(hopefully) recommended data fields?  Download our Best Practice Data Fields to learn more.
  • Is the file in a flat file format like .csv, .txt, or even in Excel? If not, what format is it provided in and how it is retrieved (i.e. login and download from a website or placed on an FTP)?
  • How often is the file updated…especially the inventory?

In addition, you’ll need to find out their process for accepting and confirming orders, shipping, and returns. Reduce the manual labor from your daily workload so you can focus on growing your business and you’ll have less chance for errors as a side effect. Focus on finding Dropship Suppliers that can provide their product data and inventory in a well-formed data feed so that managing your store and integrating with other eCommerce technology, like e-ProductPlug, can be seamless and easy.

If you want the experts at e-ProductPlug to review your Supplier’s datafeed first to ensure that it is compatible…contact us anytime at Sales@e-ProductPlug.com or 954-800-5282.
