Sync inventory data to streamline order management

It’s important to find the perfect eBay order management system specifically built for manufacturers. Otherwise, you’re going to end up with an OMS that doesn’t support direct-to-consumer (D2C) manufacturing. This will result in less efficiency, which can ultimately drive customers away and damage your reputation either temporarily or permanently.

Order management is affected by how you manage inventory as a manufacturer. Katana’s inventory management features allow you to synchronize inventory data across eBay and Katana.

Inventory management software equips you with real-time information on current stock levels, items sold, canceled orders, or what’s in production.

Keep track of all customer data in one place

Toggling between eBay listings, online spreadsheets, files, and physical notes to check the needs and profiles of your customers is something you don’t want to be doing as you scale.

Using Katana’s eBay order management software cuts the time spent on juggling between tools and allows you to focus on all the details you need in a single platform. Customers’ profile data is safely stored in Katana’s cloud software, allowing you to use your newfound time on eliminating other bottlenecks of manufacturing — or resting.

eBay order management software FAQs
Does eBay manage sales?

eBay offers you tools for listing management and sales via two key tools— Selling Manager and Selling Manager Pro.

You use either to create bulk listings, listing templates, manage your bulk edits, and view summaries of your sales. However, these features are rarely enough for an active D2C manufacturer who needs to manage their multichannel inventory at multiple warehouse locations.

What is order management software?

An order management system (OMS) is a tool that follows the order-to-cash process between B2B and D2C manufacturers.

An order management system will help you track your sales orders, inventory, and fulfillment order rate. Basically, you can track your products from the factory floor or warehouse location to the customer.

An OMS also helps you track:

  • Customers and customer service ratings 
  • Order processing 
  • Multichannel inventory and selling 
  • Multilocation inventory management 
  • Purchase order and receiving management
