algopixSatisfying customers while maintaining a profitable business has never been easy for eBay and Amazon sellers. Uncertainty about expected margins, demand levels, or sales volume can lead to incorrect product-sourcing decisions, resulting in overstock and decreased sales. In addition, it takes valuable time to calculate expected sales and revenue, which aren’t accurate in most cases.

Also, with an ever-increasing share of online buyers purchasing products from overseas retailers, it becomes even more important for any modern eCommerce business to offer its products on more than one market.
