Pro tip on Rakuten: Consolidate your inventory
Successful Marketplace sales on Rakuten are based on optimum referencing of your offers.
- Manage your stocks smartly : ensure all sku names (sku, your reference for managing your stocks) are uniform between your different Marketplaces.
- Verify state equivalences : new, used or refurbished items can be sold on marketplaces, but each platform can impose their definitions for used or refurbished states.
- Decide on shipping costs : (included, offered or not) for more visibility for your buyers
- Provide a comment : like a seller note about the offer.
Sellermania facilitates your daily inventory management
With your sku’s details appearing easily in the inventory, you may manage your offers price and quantities, as well as add a seller comment, which will appear on the order’s invoice (a great help at reducing disputes).
Sellermania also offers The Sellermania Chaining option, a useful tool allowing you to link several skus together for a unified stock management.
