New platform features and updates: April 2021
Today we’re announcing another update to Avasam! We have a brand new integration for BigCommerce that includes an automated product listing tool. We also have a new product listing tool for WooCommerce store owners so now there is no excuse not to list!
New sales channel integration: BigCommerce
As one of the world’s biggest eCommerce website builders, we just had to offer a way for our users to be able to source inventory for their BigCommerce stores, and as of today, our BigCommerce integration is now live! The functionality that we have made available from today for BigCommerce includes:
- Stock level updates – your customers will always see current stock availability
- Order processing – once your products are mapped, your order details, payments and shipping instructions will flow automatically to your supplier, and your dispatch confirmation back to your customer
- Automated product listing tool – so you can list products in just a few clicks and get going with BigCommerce right away
We’ve mentioned it recently on the blog, but we’re extremely excited about our partnership with BigCommerce. As part of this partnership, we’re offering an exclusive free trial for BigCommerce when you sign up to build your new website using our link.
Automated product listing tool: BigCommerce
This new functionality means that BigCommerce users can now enjoy the same features that Shopify users do with Avasam. This includes:
- Product sourcing – find additional products for your store via our catalogue
- Automated product listing – publish the titles, descriptions and images for those products in your BigCommerce store in just a few clicks
- Bulk product listing – don’t just list individual products, push batches of up to 100 products each time!
- Listing manager – manage all your product listings in one place
With the BigCommerce integration and the product listing tool, DropShipping with BigCommerce has never been more accessible and manageable. If you’ve never used BigCommerce, and you’re tempted to trial it, you can sign up directly from within your Avasam account, which (for a limited time) will get you a free trial on BigCommerce.
Automated product listing tool: WooCommerce
With a little under a third of all eCommerce websites using WooCommerce, we’ve been working to enhance our functionality and today’s update includes an automated listing tool for WooCommerce sellers. The functionality available is the same for our Shopify and BigCommerce sellers, so all the points we made above about the BigCommerce product listing tool also now apply to WooCommerce.
If you’re about to start creating a new eCommerce website, our BigCommerce partnership means there really has never been a better time to do so, but if you’re still deciding which website builder is right for your eCommerce website, you have more flexibility and choice. As always, be sure to do proper research and testing to ensure you have the right solution for your business, at an affordable price.
Head to your Avasam account to check out the new functionality, and of course, if you’re not yet an Avasam seller, you can sign up for your account here.
We’ll be updating Avasam again in the near future, and we’ll have exciting additions to our shipping functionality that have huge implications for scaling your business internationally. We’ll let you know, but in the meantime if you have any questions about this update, or any of our updates, or you’d like to let us know about functionality you’d like to see, get in touch.
