It is no surprise that ecommerce is one of the fastest growing markets, with a sales growth of around 46% in 2020. The pandemic and multiple lockdowns have perhaps been the largest factor in the current growth, bringing new customers online who previously made their purchases primarily in brick-and-mortar stores. This increase in online demand seen many savvy entrepreneurs and small businesses move to an ecommerce online business model allowing them to reach a wider audience and capitalise on the market growth.
One ecommerce channel many small businesses have invested in is Amazon. Giving the ability to reach millions of online shoppers without the need for a bespoke ecommerce store. Often businesses who operate on Amazon use various systems to control sales and accounting, for instance, Sage Accounting.
Whilst managing the accounting side of business through software such as Sage Accounting and online sales through Amazon is perfectly reasonable, those doing so often face challenges with managing periods of high demand due to a lack of integration. With these systems unable to communicate in real time, hours are often spent manually transferring information between each system. To connect these two systems for automated data transferring many believe a background in coding is required. However, the simple solution to this is Cloud Data Exchange.
