Top Retailer Implements ChannelAdvisor’s Comparison Shopping and Marketplaces Solutions to Boost E-Commerce Sales.
Research Triangle Park, N.C. – April 18, 2011 ChannelAdvisor, a global e-commerce platform provider that enables retailers to sell more across online channels, today announced its partnership with Jockey International Inc., a leading manufacturer and marketer of apparel products sold in major department and specialty stores in more than 120 countries around the world. Aiming to improve its brand presence and rapidly scale its online business, the apparel company now employs ChannelAdvisor’s Marketplaces and Comparison Shopping solutions.
“We sought the finest e-commerce solutions available and feel that ChannelAdvisor is definitely the best choice for Jockey.com. ChannelAdvisor’s user interface made it easy for us to scale up quickly on eBay, so that we now have a fully branded eBay store and are in a better position to manage our products,” said Jockey.com Manager of Operations and Fulfillment Shawn Burwell. “Working with ChannelAdvisor has grown our eBay marketplace business 300 percent.”
ChannelAdvisor’s Guided Marketplaces solution drastically improved Jockey’s brand presence on eBay. Specifically, using ChannelAdvisor’s ad templates and posting templates made it possible for Jockey.com to rapidly scale its business. The apparel company can now send more SKUs and process more orders, as well as participate in the daily deals that eBay offers within the marketplace.
