Higher Marketplace Rankings

If you’re selling on Amazon, eBay or other marketplaces, then you’re facing stiff online competition. You may be competing on price while seeking additional ways to differentiate.

higher marketplace rankings

According to data from One Click Retail, less than one-fifth of clicks by an Amazon shopper are for the second page. Critical drivers of page 1 rank include:

    • Exceptional and relevant product information to feed Amazon’s search algorithm
    • Exceptional user ratings
Syndicate Rich Product Content for Higher Marketplace Search Rankings

Product Information Management features save time, deliver richer product data, and reduce errors. The more time you spend cutting and pasting information into different formats, the less time you can spend creating fantastic product content. Pulse Commerce Order and Inventory Platform automates listing syndication.

    • Leverage popular eBay parameters like shipping templates, payment terms, listing description and duration, reserve price, best offer, etc.
    • Post product options by size, color, and other preferred and optional attributes.
    • Sell in multiple Amazon.com categories.

Deliver Amazing Customer Service for Highest Seller Ratings

Exceed Amazon’s High Standards for Marketplace Sellers

From Amazon’s website: Amazon Seller Performance Targets

All sellers should be working toward achieving and maintaining a level of customer service that meets the following seller performance targets:

    • Order defect rate: < 1%
    • Pre-fulfillment cancel rate: < 2.5%
    • Late shipment rate: < 4%

 

Robust Inventory Management Keeps Your Pre-Fulfillment Cancel Rate Low

Keep a clear, real-time view of all inventory across all your locations, and therefore orders, to ensure every item you sell is in stock. “Time since last sale” is another important input into Amazon’s search algorithm, so running out of stock hurts you 3 times! First, it increases your pre-fulfillment cancel rate. Second, your days since last sale get worse while you replenish stock. Third, it lowers your search ranking. 

Keep Your Late Shipment Rate Down with Faster Order Turnaround
    • Intelligent order routing sends marketplace orders to the closest fulfillment centers, improving turnaround times.
    • Robust FedEx, UPS and USPS integrations streamline your shipping operations.
    • Accurately print shipping labels and packing slips using the familiar Pulse Commerce Administration panel or using a third-party integrated solution.
    • Enable customers to place orders spanning one or several vendors.
