Overview

Sell Ingram Micro, Techdata & 100 other suppliers products

Populate your Magento site with virtual stock and drop ship the products to your customers – for IT, Telecoms, Ink, office and consumer electronics products.

Our solution allows you to:

  1. Take datafeeds from multiple IT product distributors with whom you have accounts
  2. It matches all the products with full product descriptions, images and categories from Icecat and the suppliers
  3. Our tool allows you to select what to sell – how to organise the products and adds a margin on to your cost prices so you profit – also to publish, exclude, move and rename categories and products
  4. The resulting product list is then pumped in to your Magento site daily

You can install the plug in and populate your site with 7000 sample products free of charge!

What is required:

  1. To host a Magento site with our plug in you need at least 2GB of ram – ideally 4GB of guaranteed RAM – after all you will have 50,000 products in your site. You will have to ensure you have your server correctly configured
  2. Accounts with the suppliers – some of the suppliers just want you to buy something to have an account – but most make you apply and you need to be a VAT registered business.

What you get:

  1. A site full of products with stock, prices, product descriptions, categories, attribute filters, images, product comparison, related products and more pumped in to Magento automatically
  2. A tool to manage the feed – see screenshot
  3. The ability to see your buy prices as you browse Stock in the Channel
  4. Free support and advice to help you get it working
  5. If you pay
    a.) A template we have designed to suit IT industry plugged in for you
    b.) Our techies to login and configure your server for you

Order process automation services

We have written a tool that polls the Magento orders file and imports them in to our system for electronic fulfillment and then feeds the status and tracking information back in to Magento. Our order processing tool links to Sage and Navision natively and offers an Open API for other systems. Again you can find details of this on our marketing site. Learn about order process automation

Answer: 
Hi, Yes we do work with a smaller but growing number of Resellers and Distributors in the US market.
Stock in the Channel manage this through a sub-domain of our main site. us.stockinthechannel.com
This domain features only Distributors offering products in the US market.
Our Magento plugin allows you to select which of our regional FTP site it uses to pull the product, stock & Price data from.
