July 28, 2011 ChannelAdvisor Launches Service Offerings Tailored to eBay UK Fashion Outlet
Specialised Services Enable High-Street Brands to Maximise Channel Revenue
London, UK – 28 July 2011 – ChannelAdvisor, a global e-commerce platform provider that enables retailers to sell more across online channels, today announced two service packages for apparel retailers wishing to launch on eBay’s Fashion Outlet in time for the Christmas selling season. These services will launch retailers onto eBay Fashion Outlet with guidance, training and tactical support to ensure success on this channel.
eBay’s Fashion Outlet enables high street brands to extend their brand reach and is an additional route for retailers to dispose of end-of-line or clearance stock. In the last 30 days, the top 10 brands on eBay’s Fashion Outlet transacted over Ã‚Â£2.4m in sales.
ChannelAdvisor is the leading third-party supplier of technology and services for retailers selling on the eBay UK Fashion Outlet, powering nearly 30 percent of transactions through the channel. ChannelAdvisor offers two eBay Fashion Outlet services, Launch Plus Fashion Outlet and Managed Fashion Outlet. Both of these services are built around ChannelAdvisor’s award-winning technology platform.
- Managed Fashion Outletis a service that provides full management of a retailer’s presence on eBay’s Fashion Outlet. ChannelAdvisor handles data optimisation, product selection and categorisation, listing generation and order management.
- Launch Plus Fashion Outletis a fast-track launch service in which ChannelAdvisor handles the heavy lifting involved with the initial launch onto the Fashion Outlet, then the retailer takes over the day-to-day running of the account.
ChannelAdvisor’s EMEA Managing Director, James Scott commented, “ChannelAdvisor is widely recognised as the global standard for e-commerce and has helped a number of leading brands take advantage of eBay’s Fashion Outlet initiative throughout the past 18 months. Our two Fashion Outlet services will be a perfect solution for retailers who wish to get live in time for Christmas, but don’t have the internal resources or experience to do this alone.”
Fashion brands such as House of Fraser, Barratt’s Shoes, Speedo, Littlewoods Clearance, Joe Browns Clearance and Savile Row already trust ChannelAdvisor to power their Fashion Outlet operations.
ChannelAdvisor will be hosting a lunch seminar in Central London for retailers interested in launching on eBay Fashion Outlet. To register your interest to attend this seminar, or to learn more about ChannelAdvisor’s Fashion Outlet services visit: www.channeladvisor.co.uk/fashionoutlet.
