eBay sellers have a new option to manage their business more effectively.

Stitch Labs, provider of an integrated inventory and order management application for the SMB market, has announced the release of their latest integration partner, eBay. With this new integration, eBay sellers that sell through one or multiple channels can manage their inventory, orders and sales analytics from a central location.

Earlier this year, eBay CEO John Donahoe announced that eBay plans to enable $300 billion in global commerce across its businesses by 2015, up from $175 billion in 2012. That figure is comprised of the total commerce and payment volume across all three of eBay's core business units: Marketplaces, PayPal and GSI.

“eBay is taking a holistic approach to commerce. They don’t look at online and offline any longer. They just look at commerce in general, and that’s right in-line with how we see the world. We don’t care how you sell. We just want to help you sell,” said Brandon Levey, CEO of Stitch Labs.

Online sales will surge 45 percent to $327 billion in the U.S. in 2016 from $226 billion in 2011, estimates Forrester Research Inc. Entrepreneurs are continuing to find ways to take part in that explosive growth by selling on their own websites and fast growing marketplaces like eBay and Etsy.

In the most recent quarter, eBay Marketplaces revenue increased 13 percent to $2 billion with Marketplaces gaining 3.9 million active users in the period, ending the quarter with 116 million, a 13 percent increase. Etsy saw transaction volume increase 70.3 percent in 2012 to $895.1 million dollars.

The barriers to sell online are coming down, but operational challenges are on the rise due to the complexity of selling through multiple channels. Stitch is the application that ties all of a sellers’ channels together, manages inventory in an automated way and provides an in-depth understanding of how a sellers’ business is performing, no matter how they choose to sell their products. By integrating Stitch, sellers have the ability to automatically list and delist inventory quantities to eBay and the other channels they sell through.

In addition to eBay, Stitch Labs integrates with several popular hosted selling platforms, including Amazon, Shopify, BigCommerce, Etsy and Storenvy. They also integrate with payments giant PayPal and shipping service ShipStation to round out their suite of business application partners.
