ChannelAdvisor Announces Support for SHOP.COM Marketplace

RESEARCH TRIANGLE PARK, N.C. --(Business Wire)--

ChannelAdvisor, a leading provider of cloud-based e-commerce solutions that enable retailers and manufacturers to increase global sales, today announced its partnership with SHOP.COM, a third-party marketplace offering a comprehensive shopping experience online. ChannelAdvisor's Marketplaces solution supports multiple marketplaces including SHOP.COM, Amazon, eBay (News - Alert) and more, offering online retailers simplified access to additional sources of demand and revenue.

"Our ultimate goal is to help retailers grow, and the addition of SHOP.COM to our marketplaces roster is a new way for sellers to reach new customers," said ChannelAdvisor COO David Spitz. "This partnership allows our retailers to use the existing product feed they're already sending us to quickly integrate with SHOP.COM, saving them time and money."

ChannelAdvisor's Marketplaces solution enables retailers to automatically create and manage product listings across multiple marketplaces, eliminating the need to send duplicate product data when scaling their online presence while minimizing overselling situations.

"ChannelAdvisor provides us the opportunity to expand beyond our existing marketplaces, and most recently we launched SHOP.COM," said Christmas Central CIO Nathan Gordon. "It only took us a few hours to get set up on SHOP.COM, allowing us to quickly increase our online exposure and potential."

"We've taken our site to the next level by creating the most revolutionary marketplace that puts retailers' products exactly where consumers are shopping," said SHOP.COM EVP Marc Ashley. "ChannelAdvisor is one of the industry's most complete e-commerce platforms, and this partnership will simplify the selling process for retailers on SHOP.COM."

SHOP.COM provides retailers the opportunity to grow their online sales through its online platform, mobile app, social media tools and direct marketing.

SHOP.COM's leading categories include:

  • Apparel
  • Home & Housewares
  • Electronics
  • Travel
  • Office
  • Consumables (Grocery, Drug, CPG)
  • Entertainment
  • Beauty

Channeldvisor and SHOP.COM will host a joint webinar on Thursday, January 31, 2013 at 2:00 p.m. ET to educate retailers further on the benefits of selling on this new marketplace. To learn more and to register for this webinar, please visit
