Why Sellers are Choosing
Skubana Over Channel Advisor
Here are the Top 9 Reasons
Achieve Hyper Growth and Scale with Skubana
Scaling your business becomes more efficient with Skubana as a Channel Advisor alternative. If you’re selling across the Internet, for instance, you can connect your shopping carts and marketplaces in your Skubana account in minutes and run your entire business in the cloud. Channel Advisor is more of a listing tool than an operations platform, requiring retailers to connect fragmented solutions, which adds unnecessary costs, creates data redundancy errors, and limits growth.
Multi-Channel Inventory and Order Management
Channel Advisor built their initial business around listing creation on different marketplaces. Skubana takes a different approach. Right from the beginning we built something to unify your operations by providing advanced order processing, inventory management, and in-depth analytics. These capabilities allow you to run and automate your business, as well as create unique and curated listings on the shopping carts and channels that you sell on.
Multiple Warehouse Locations and Unlimited Fulfillment Methods
Are you trying to fulfill with Channel Advisor? Channel Advisor requires you integrate to a shipping software to run your business. Skubana enables you to fulfill all your products, any way you want, from as many warehouses as you need, in just a few clicks. We support FBA, Shipping Labels, 3PL integrations, Dropshipping and Amazon Multi-Channel Fulfillment. You can even have all those fulfillment options happening simultaneously, with multi-warehouse functionality.
Dynamic Overselling Prevention Mechanisms Made Easy
Dealing with overselling in Channel Advisor can be cumbersome, because it wasn’t initially built with your e-commerce operations in mind. Skubana provides you with precise inventory control, without the headache. With Skubana, you’ll get a centralized product catalog to manage inventory across all your channels and warehouses, and an intuitive stock control feature equipped with dynamic overselling prevention mechanisms. All you need to do is add your rules on the inventory page and hit the ground running.
FIFO Inventory Value
Need to follow best practices and use First in First out (FIFO) cost accounting for your profitability analysis? You can’t do that in Channel Advisor. Fortunately, Skubana supports FIFO discounting, and goes the extra mile by automatically calculating as you order product and ring up sales across marketplaces.
Algorithmic Purchase Order Management
Unlike Channel Advisor, Skubana gives its retailers powerful tools to manage purchase orders processes with the ability to do full, closed, short, or partial inventory receipts. Manage your purchases from one central database, receive products across all your warehouses, and transfer stock easily between locations. And because your time is valuable, Skubana also gives you the ability to algorithmically reorder product when the count is getting low, then creates a purchase order awaiting your approval. This gives you better control over your inventory so you can keep your stores stocked with the right products at the right time.
No Tax on Your Growth
Not only are Skubana’s pricing plans more affordable than Channel Advisor’s, you’ll get more value out of the platform. Channel Advisor takes a percentage of your revenue, while Skubana operates on a flat fixed cost that remains the same no matter how much you grow. Even if these tools had the same price tag, consider the value delivered. Skubana was designed to be the last platform you will ever need to scale your business. Channel Advisor requires add-ons and additional software to provide the same functionality that Skubana has rolled into one tool.
An App Store Full of Powerful 1-Click Integrations
Unlike Channel Advisor, you can expand the capabilities of Skubana — and your business — with our app store ecosystem. We’re always adding new integrations for everything from accounting to CRM ticketing software to barcoding software. Whereas Channel Advisor only has a handful of integrations, Skubana has dozens of apps to help you extend functionality with 1-click — including QuickBooks, Xsellco Fusion, and Appeagle. And we’re adding more all the time.
Dedicated Account Managers to Ensure your Success
The sale doesn’t end when you join Skubana, it begins. While Channel Advisor offers standard on-boarding and implementation, Skubana goes above and beyond to educate and empower retailers for success. Skubana customers receive an exclusive Account Manager located in the United States to help you get the most out of Skubana throughout your experience on the platform.
