- Inventory – Inventory partners can be any software platform that holds inventory data. These are typically eCommerceor ERP platforms that retailers use to manage their inventory. These partners could integrate with ChannelAdvisor to allow sellers who utilize their solution to push inventory into the ChannelAdvisor platform.
- Advertising Channels – An Advertising Partner is one that provides a retailer with the opportunity to promote product ads or listings, which will then drive traffic back to the retailer’s website for conversion. Examples of Advertising partners would be Comparison Shopping Engines, Affiliate Networks or Retargeting platforms. These partners could provide a feed specification that ChannelAdvisor can offer to sellers, which would then allow sellers to push inventory and offers to the partner.
- Transactional Channels – A Transactional partner is one that provides a retailer with the opportunity to sell products through a 3rd-party website. Transactional partners are typically marketplaces, but could also include product aggregators, social or mobile solutions that process orders outside of the retailer’s website. ChannelAdvisor can do an orders integration with these partners which would allow sellers on the ChannelAdvisor platform to process orders from this partner via their existing order integration.
- Fulfilment / OMS – Fulfilment or Order Management System (OMS) partners manage the post-order process on behalf of retailers. These would include partners with shipping, order management or other fulfilment offerings. These partners could integrate with ChannelAdvisor to pull down completed orders for ChannelAdvisor sellers who choose to take advantage of the partner offering.
