We all know what bridges are and what they serve. But there are also bridge programs that allow, facilitate, and implement it interface two foreign software between them.

Examples:

1. you have a physical store and an online store with the same object. You need a bridge program to connect your warehouse.

2. you have an online store and you want to link it to an online marketplace such as amazon. You need a bridge program.

With these latest links, the bridges, we will deal with today’s article. And especially the Prestashop bridges with Ebay and Amazon.

amazon-prestashopIn this case, we have the following:

The idea behind these links to marketplaces is that you are taking advantage of the multitude of users (and talking about the millions) who have and who can get in touch with your products. The more people see them, the more they may be interested in buying them. That is, you could have many different stores with the same products, but instead of cloning stores you can simply register it on more than one third site and increase the visibility of your products.

Multi Channel

The statistics are relentless. Those who have posted their products on marketplaces have seen an 80% increase in sales!

And it’s not just this benefit. There are more. Such as being able to fully exploit your stock and play at your own prices at will to achieve the best possible outcome.

Practically, from a commercial point of view, it is true that it would apply to physical stores as well. In as many as e.g. the more supermarkets you have your products, the more you increase their sales.

Two of the largest marketplaces currently in the world are Ebay and Amazon. Any business that has an extroversion tendency should be there!

How are links to marketplaces made?

This is where the hardships begin. Marketplaces were not made to work together. The opposite is true. So registering a product on Amazon is completely different from Ebay. That they can follow the same philosophy does not change much. Each platform has its own way of importing data.

Imagine wanting to work with many such platforms and having to include descriptions, photos and a whole host of other things in each one. Not even your life is enough. And instead of selling, you register. That’s why you have to use bridges!

Bridges are modules that fasten onto your store and allow you to mass export products to any platform, refresh their details and place orders.
