eBay announced that eBay Enterprise clients have hit the $1 billion sales milestone. This is across over 6,500 stores, 42 brands, and three continents.
eBay merged Magento with eBay Enterprise just over a year ago. They're showcasing their solutions at the National Retail Federation Big Show in New York City this week.
eBay Enterprise counts Ace Hardware, Shoe Carnival, Destination XL, and Designer SHoe Warehouse among clients who have successfully deployed its store fulfillment solutions.
The company says, "Store fulfillment is also a growing trend outside of the U.S. For example, international retailers Tiger of Sweden and Peak Performance among others have increased the number of stores enabled with Ship-from Store by 47 percent and order volume increased by 108 percent over 2013 volumes."
eBay Enterprise offers a cloud-based "ship-from store" feature that includes full inventory visibility, and allows retailers to offer physical store inventory alongside warehouse inventory.
“Store fulfillment solutions like Ship-from Store and In-Store Pickup give online consumers access to inventory across stores, distribution centers, and even suppliers to deliver goods at the best possible speed and cost while preserving the best possible margin for brands and retailers – boosting sales, enhancing the consumer experience and improving customer retention rates,” said eBay Enterprise President Craig Hayman. “Adopting omnichannel strategies like this will be critical for retailers in 2015.”
eBay says clients saw significant benefits from its Store Fulfillment solutions throughout the holiday season with year-over-year order volume via ship-from store and in-store pickup up 34% and sales up 54% from Thanksgiving to Cyber Monday in the U.S.
