Integrate with Magento

Interested in pairing with Magento? Then you’ve come to the right place. In the table of contents below you can see (and click on) what we will cover in this article.

Why integrate with Magento?

Although marketplaces are the future of online retail, having your own webshop (linking) can still be a good business tool to maximize your profitability. You do not pay a margin and you have your leads completely in your own hands.

If you have a Magento website, you can easily connect with all kinds of systems that make it possible to expand your sales channels efficiently and effectively.

Possible Problems and Challenges

Knowledge | Quite a bit of knowledge is needed to be able to compete well with current sellers on the internet. That’s where an analytical tool like Ahrefs or e-tailize can help you. These dashboards give you the information you need to beat the competition.

Errors | It is important that you as a seller keep your performance as high as possible. Stable stock synchronization and reliable sending of orders are therefore very important. In addition, you also want to be able to efficiently process a high number of returns. With a tool like e-tailize you can be sure that there are no (synchronization) errors between your marketplaces, webshop(s), fulfillment parties, and the PIM system.

Scaling | When you have Magento under control, you want to expand the number of channels – and thus your reach. If you import your products into a PIM system, you can also upload the products to marketplaces. In addition, you have immediately arranged your order management and stock synchronization.

What categories

Almost everything can be sold on Magento, so to keep the list short, we give the list of products that you are not allowed to sell:

  • Virtual currency, including credits for video games or virtual worlds
  • Counterfeit goods
  • Adult content and services
  • Drug paraphernalia (including e-cigarettes, vapes, and nutraceuticals)
  • Marketing on multiple levels
  • Pseudo-drugs
  • Social media activity, such as Twitter followers, Facebook likes, YouTube views
  • Substances designed to mimic illegal drugs
  • Firearms, ammunition

The costs & conditions

Having a Magento webshop built will cost at least 5,000 to 10,000 euros. More complex webshops for companies that already have a well-thought-out order & processing process, the costs are usually between € 25,000 and € 125,000. There are even cases where it can go up to $250,000. The basic subscription of Magento costs about €15,000 per year and can go up to €120,000, depending on your turnover.

How to learn to sell on Magento

There are a number of ways to learn how to sell through Magento. There are many videos on Youtube and blogs on the web. At e-tailize we also offer the tools and links such as our ‘Analyze’ module, which generates insights for you and gives you an overview of the data via marketplaces. This allows you to manage quickly and efficiently on ‘Actionable Metrics‘.

Conclusion

Magento is by far the most suitable system for large webshops that want to organize their processes as efficiently as possible. The costs are high, but the possibilities for customization are unlimited. For your omni-channel strategy, it is important that you set up your processes properly from the start. So look carefully at an (integration) software that can unburden you with that. Not only in terms of processes, but also features related to data analysis.
