Event description

After the success of our first event in Bristol, we have another event at Hamilton House, Bristol.  During this event Iain from Vdepot  will be talking about how to fulfil eCommerce orders effectively followed by Ed’s interesting talk about sourcing profitable products to sell on Amazon using Profitsourcery.

This event is Free for online sellers and retailers and we also have refreshment throughout the evening.

How to fulfil eCommerce orders effectively?

Many eCommerce companies struggle with effectively fulfilling their eCommerce orders. Keeping the customer happy and keeping fulfilment and delivery costs down can be a tough balancing act, especially if you’re doing everything by yourself.

During this session we will look at (among others) the fulfilment market, meeting customer expectations, trends, courier/carrier issues, the fulfilment of large items, outsourcing fulfilment, Fulfilment by Amazon, key questions to ask fulfilment companies, integrating sales channels and more generally how to do this all effectively.

How to source profitable products to sell on Amazon?

Finding items that will sell for a profit after fees is an area that many sellers indicate is a pain point for their businesses.

In this talk, Ed Brooks, founder of ProfitSourcery will show you how to utilise regular online stores to find items that you can trade on Amazon (and eBay) successfully. ProfitSourcery is the UK’s first online arbitrage tool, analysing millions of retailer records each month and surfacing a product feed to their customers of items in the Top 1% fastest selling items on Amazon.
