eBay isn’t just for consumer auctions anymore. Retailers and Distributors are now taking advantage of eBay’s reach (as well as Amazon) to get rid of excess inventory and even reach new markets. eBay has made launching an eBay store, Dutch Auction or even traditional auction a relatively easy endeavor, however without integration, managing items, inventory, sales orders and customers can become chaotic.
Microsoft Dynamics Retail Management System (RMS) provides retailers with a complete point of sale solution that streamlines operations and increases revenue. One of the strengths of Microsoft Dynamics RMS, (as well as the complete line of Microsoft Dynamics Business Solutions), is its ability for developers to integrate it with different software solutions. This is vitally important in today’s retail environment as many businesses look to extend their selling efforts to include web stores and marketplaces. That includes a site like eBay, which can quickly provide expanded reach and increased revenue streams for brick and mortar retailers.
Connecting eBay to Microsoft Dynamics RMS comes with a host of benefits, including:
- Rapid installation and ease of use
- The ability to push item data from Microsoft Dynamics RMS to eBay – with automated administration of eBay’s naming taxomy for items
- Automatic inventory synchronization between the point of sale system and eBay as sales are made in the store AND as orders are placed on eBay
- Easy administration of merchandising items for eBay such as descriptions, images, and required eBay item attributes
- Easy management of pricing, price lists, supplier purchase orders, inventory transfers and reporting – for all of your sale channels
- Much more!
As your business continues to grow, working with a program like Dynamics RMS can be a critical success factore. RMS integration with eBay – or any eCommerce site for that matter – reduces the amount of manual entry, reduces mistakes, speeds up order processing and automates inventory updating.

eBay integration can give retailers with Microsoft Dynamics RMS a quick way to expand revenue and can work right along side your existing eCommerce web store.

An affordable option versus traditional integration, a cloud-based platform can connect customer, item, inventory, sales and supplier data in record time, quickly enabling the systems you already use to work together efficiently. Using a cloud-based platform often means you don’t have change systems – or gives you the option to choose the systems you want to use.
