After years of casually selling items online, Josh made the transition to the Amazon marketplace but quickly discovered that managing inventory can be incredibly time-consuming. Largely an FBA seller, he started looking for ways to be more efficient. Recently, Josh spoke with us about how RestockPro has helped him keep up with the demands of his growing eCommerce business.
Experienced Online Seller
Unlike many who find themselves navigating the ins and outs of eCommerce, Josh had more than 15 years of experience selling online through the eBay marketplace. When his father made the leap to the Amazon marketplace, they started working together, initially selling children’s rugs and upholstery foam. Now the pair offer an eclectic variety of items including pillow inserts, kitchen products, home décor and more.
Having created a relationship with an established supplier, Josh and his father were able to increase their existing inventory. In addition, they’ve recently begun importing from China.
Their Amazon.com business relies largely on the FBA program as well as some merchant-fulfilled items. While they have their own packaging center where they bag, label and ship orders, over time it became increasingly difficult to predict their needs and keep up with high demand.
As a proactive business owner, Josh began searching for a tool that could help them stay on top of orders and streamline the process. That’s when he came across RestockPro.
“When we kept selling out of our merchandise, it would get pushed back. It was getting to be too much to forecast,” Josh explained. He and his father were looking for a tool that would help them maintain the needed inventory while also calculating the velocity.
“We looked at other tools but once we saw the reviews that RestockPro had, it was an obvious choice. It had a lot more options,” Josh said. One of the features he’s especially fond of is the ability to “set up shipments four weeks in advance. It’s unheard of…I couldn’t do that without RestockPro.”
