ChannelAdvisor Aggregated Reviews
I just saw your post today while browsing reddit during work when I saw your reddit thread. Funny enough, my company had just implemented Channeladvisor and now we are in the process of consolidating all marketplace APIs to fit into channeladvisor. And YES, it is awesome that we do not have to upload listing multiple times anymore, but if you consider every marketplace has their own data standards so you still have to tweak everything within Channeladvisor (such as html for ebay listings). But the price of Channeladvisor is ridiculously expensive – upwards of 100k+ (boss-man himself let me know).
For inventory management I use ChannelAdvisor. I’m selling on about 15 different marketplaces so this makes it super easy. However if you’re simply running the Shopify store only I wouldn’t make the investment in ChannelAdvisor.
This is stupid, but I worked for a team which hired VAs (virtual assistants) in lieu of ChannelAdvisor. I asked the boss about it, who knew it was iffy, but said it was cheaper.
Channeladvisor is miles ahead. It still has issues but it works better than any other system I have used.

As a web agency we never could and never will be able to escape the urge of building things.
Among million other things we played with an idea of text-based games and the last piece that was missing was the story itself. So via in-house outreach platform we found two established writers that believed in the project and agreed to participate.
Shout out to Richard Abbott who wrote Fraud on Thetis and Eva Pohler who sent us a huge draft we are still reading through.
GRIN launcher is born.
It is an outreach platform that we use to establish connections with editorial teams.
They say samples of published articles look good but pricing looks even better
At some point we realised that list building, fetching contact details & outreach tech work just as well for b2b lead generation
Once, we fell in love with ecommerce, because of short feedback cycles on marketing & development efforts.
Today we ship into production inhouse SaaS project - AVOKADO - the web app for learning languages with flash cards.
The year after we built it we realised how long is the road map ahead & what resources we'd need to promote it and decided to put it on hold.
