Looking for alternative marketplaces, inventory listing tools, shipping and other services to help you become more efficient selling online? Then you’ll want to check out our new and improved Service Charts! We’ve had industry resources sections almost from the beginning of our existence in 1999. In, 2011 we introduced charts that allowed users to rate and review listed companies.
Now we’ve relaunched our service charts, making them more mobile-friendly. We’ve removed services that are (sadly) no longer with us, added some new categories, including Tax Compliance Solutions and Research and Analytics Tools, and have reached out to a wide network of services to let them know that if they’re not listed, they should be!
Companies manage their own listings. They’re able to update pricing, features, logos, whenever they would like. If you don’t see a service that you use in the charts – drop that service a note. Let them know they’re missing a great opportunity!
How to Use Ratings & Reviews
The main index is on this page. Once you drill into a category, such as Fixed Price Marketplaces, you’ll see a list of companies with a quick description and the rating for each. Click on one of the entries, and you can read more about it – and you can see how the ratings break down.
You can then click on Latest Reviews to read all comments left by users of that service (We’ve left legacy reviews intact, so the date of the review is included).
Listings on all charts are sorted by number of ratings by default. You can change the default order to sort alphabetically or by ratings (high to low, or low to high). See the “Select Sort” pulldown menu at the top right of each page.
Our charts are designed to provide you with information about platforms and services and let you read what your colleagues think of them.
It’s easy to leave a rating or review, but you must be registered. It’s the same AB Verify system we use for the blogs and the Ecommerce EKG reports.
We’re in our 20th year of publishing EcommerceBytes, and we’ve seen a lot of companies come and go, so we welcome your help with keeping the charts up to date. When you see a service that’s no longer around, email us and let us know!
Our annual Sellers Choice Awards for online marketplaces has proven that readers care about how sellers rate the platforms on which they sell. So please use this resource both to rate and review the services you use, and when you’re looking for ideas for ways to save yourself time and become more profitable.
