As many smaller retailers know, they often need to tailor their businesses to meet the demands of larger marketing platforms such as eBay or Amazon. These large sellers have a much larger reach than an individual web retailer. The result is a bulk of their sales being sourced from these platforms rather than being generated on their own organic website. However, since it’s best not to rely on one single site to provides all sales, retailers are in the position of juggling multiple order and supply chains that need to meet the requirements of numerous hosting sites as well as those of the end user who is expecting their product to arrive in a swift and efficient manner.
