Amazon Seller Returns to Feedvisor After Using ChannelAdvisor

Majorly a brick-and-mortar family operation, the company has been around for four generations and Amazon makes up about 20% of their total company sales.

Finding a Price Optimization and Intelligence Solution that Provides Transparency and Simplicity
Prior to partnering with Feedvisor, the seller was utilizing ChannelAdvisor as a listing tool and for repricing. After meeting Feedvisor at a conference, the seller decided to implement Feedvisor and use ChannelAdvisor at the same time for the listing capabilities. Ultimately, he ended up leaving Feedvisor, as he didn’t realize that ChannelAdvisor’s repricing tool was included. However, after leaving for three months, he returned to solely Feedvisor for repricing.
