It’s always good to see industry’s guys pulling together to discuss important topics such as benefits of multi-channel sales & inventory management systems, so thanks to everyone who attended eBay’s Meetup yesterday, hosted by iwoca.
The group was founded by Nathan O’Hanlon in 2008 and after a break has been restarted with Christoph Rieche, CEO of iwoca, committed to make this a regular event once again.
The meeting kicked off at 6:30pm at the Blue Anchor Pub in Hammersmith, which is known for its great views on Thames River and Hammersmith Bridge.
Chris Dawson, co-founder of Tamebay, started with an overview of how to choose a multi-channel provider and shared what the different vendors have to offer.
Then Artem Verovenko from Linnworks spent some time talking about the growth of eCommerce in UK and its contribution to UK’s GDP, stressing out the importance of becoming a multi-channel seller.
He explained, that this is a market requirement and not what once was an innovative approach. He then gave a quick live demo of Linnworks to give a better flavour of what can be achieved with a right solution in place.
The talking part of the event ended at 7:30PM, leaving enough time to network with other eBay sellers and colleagues.
A special thanks to Christoph, James and Alycia from iwoca (who also are our solution partners) for the beer and food which was most appreciated.
It was also a great pleasure to see John Pemberton (our existing customer who’s also the owner of GiveMeDesignerClothes shop), Andre Kruger (our solution partner and Director of eSellerSolutions), Andy Geldman (the owner of AuctionSoftwareReview web-site) and many others!
Last night’s event was truly a success, and we can’t wait to see you again at the next eBay Meetup! :)
