UMP – short for //uploadmyproducts.com is a SaaS service that pulls inventory data from your ecommerce platform and pushes it to multiple marketplaces. UMP previously had successfully implemented Push or uploads to eBay, Amazon, Google Shopping and Shopping.com. It can now upload to Walmart.com also helping merchants give even more exposure to their products.
Experienced ecommerce merchants realize that to increase the chances of making a sale, you have to get in front of more customers on their favorite marketplace. You must sell on multiple marketplaces.
Some of the popular marketplaces are Walmart.com, eBay, Amazon, Rakuten, Google Shopping, Shopping.com etc.
When you start uploading inventory to multiple marketplaces, a spike in sales generally follows. Soon, however; merchants hit a bottleneck and that is inventory management. If your own website does not synchronize it’s database with the marketplaces, you may make a sale on eBay but you are actually sold out. Order cancellations result in negative feedback and eBay lowers your DSR rating. If the situation is not remedied, marketplaces start restricting your account and could result in eventual suspension. It’s a very real threat and thousands of merchants have learned it the hard way.
That’s where a service like UMP – //uploadmyproducts.com comes in to the rescue. UMP pulls data from your ecommerce platform and pushes it to multiple marketplaces at regular intervals to keep data synchronized across multiple marketplaces. Customers are happy, marketplaces don’t frown on you any more and merchants can breathe easy. They also get a little richer in the pocketbook.
