 VillageMall Launches eBay Integration for Australian Small Business..

VillageMall eBay integration helps drive eBay sales and fulfilment for  Australian
Small Business Owners and Operators..


Brisbane, Australia,- March 2007 - VillageMall®, the premier provider of Web-based applications for Australian small and medium size business, today announced the ability to manage online sales with from within the VillageMall® on-demand business management solutions. Web Office provides Australian businesses with a complete end-to-end solution to sell items on eBay while seamlessly using VillageMall to run and manage all of their business processes.

The VillageMall eBay integration allows sellers to sell on eBay as easily as they do on their own Web sites or with their internal sales teams. Additionally, it also offers powerful capabilities for users to manage all business operations such as inventory, warehouse management, accounting, direct sales, telesales, and sales order processing.

For current eBay users:
Now fast-growing and high-volume eBay sellers have a seamless way to manage their back-office operations and entire business more effectively, including customer service management, inventory management, fulfilment, automated listings management, and CRM.

For businesses not yet using eBay: Established businesses can use the same inventory for eBay as used in other areas of sales operations, such as direct sales or telesales, opening up a whole new avenue of doing business.

As eBay sellers grow from a home business to a small-to-midsized business, manual processes that sufficed during their inception can begin to hamper the quality of customer service that served to fuel their initial growth. Listings management, inventory management, fulfilment and customer service become increasingly important for any  business, and especially a home based business. With the new VillageMall solution, these key business processes are automated and streamlined, allowing eBay businesses to grow sales faster without corresponding growth in costs and additional employees.

For already established e-tailers, distributors, manufacturers and retailers who have not yet begun utilising eBay as a sales channel, the challenges include optimising listings and listing management. The listing process takes time and knowledge of the market, and integrating their inventory and order management systems for fulfilment manually is often difficult and time consuming.

The VillageMall solution with eBay sales management capabilities is designed to address these challenges, opening up a whole new avenue of doing business. Established businesses can use the same Web Ledger Inventory for eBay as they do in other areas of their operations, such as direct sales or telesales. For instance, distributors can now list excess inventory on eBay and open up a new sales channel. eBay listings are managed centrally in VillageMall with easy-to-use interfaces that eliminate duplicate data entry. In addition, orders resulting from eBay sales flow seamlessly back into VillageMall for processing and shipment, and finally into those BAS/IAS returns.

All VillageMall services are listed on the Australian Tax Office register, to give you that extra piece of mind..

"Web office is an ideal business management platform for sellers to efficiently manage their businesses," said Charles Moore. eBay integration is an extension of our existing Web Store service, companies can now choice the best way to sell their goods and services. "By using eBay's Web Service API to offer listing management capabilities from within the VillageMall solutions, VillageMall is able to deliver a great value to small and medium-size businesses that want to list on eBay, Villagemall offers a complete solution to help grow all aspects of the businesses."
