It can take hours to upload merchandise to your eCommerce store because you have to type in detailed product descriptions and resize photos. This dropshipper speeds up the process using export features that allow you to move data onto an Amazon or eBay store with little effort. You can import product photos directly to your store without having to copy and paste images. This dropshipper is also capable of sending products and pictures to a website via the custom data export. It uses advanced automated technology to upload products, prices and quantity, eliminating hours of work.

The company's low-inventory notification alerts you when a product on your site is running out of stock so you can cancel the listing. If a buyer purchases an item that is no longer available, you will have to issue a refund and it may affect your customer feedback rating. This inventory feature will save you many headaches caused by unhappy customers.

Product order tracking gives you the ability to view the status of purchased items during each step of the shipping process. This is useful for answering questions that your buyers have about the shipping status of each purchase.
