If you need an ecommerce, email marketing and affiliate program - it is great to have this all in one solution. Larger businesses with many employees in remote locations may need a different solution. If you do not need ecommerce or affiliate, you can use a lower cost program that costs less. The learning curve is short for a solo entrepreneur with some technical knowledge.

It is well suited for anyone trying to sell their products across multiple marketplaces and websites. It helps cut down on employees and automate tasks that could take a person hours.

It is not well suited if you are only selling on your own website as it is really intended to be used for marketplaces.

Pros

  • Email Marketing - Easy to use templates but you can also use your custom html template.
  • Managing your list - It is easy to set up separate lists and create opt in forms for each one. It allows multiple opt in forms with customized messages for all steps of the opt in process.
  • Ecommerce - Setup of your product or service is easy. You can use buy now type buttons on the 1ShoppingCart store. Integration with your merchant account or Paypal is offered.
  • Includes an affiliate management option. This module allows you to manage an affiliate with custom links and an area to post materials for affiliates to use - such as banners.

  • Faster repricing on Amazon
  • Better technical support. Tickets often take far to long to be closed.
  • Fix bugs and glitches that often cause slowness using the software.

Likelihood to Renew

Based on 2 answers
If I were in charge of the renewal decision I would really take a look at 1SC vs. Infusionsoft. There are many ways each are great and many ways they are different. I would look at what was best for my company and make the choice accordingly. I find that Infusionsoft has many more ways to intuitively market, segment and cultivate new leads and grow the business as a whole than 1SC currently has.

Without ChannelAdvisor, our business wouldn't be where it is today so the idea of NOT renewing is out of the question. By not renewing we would have to hire more employees and have more of a workload for existing employees. By keeping costs low and employees effecient we have been able to grow exponentially.

Better control of scope between the resources on both sides involved would allow for better change management.

Alternatives Considered

Again, it's the client that usually selects the system they want to use. I think 1ShoppingCart has lower monthly payment options so that makes it more appealing. Infusionsoft has a $2k payment that must be made in order to use their product

I have no experience with any other products so I honestly cannot say. What I do know is that most fortune 100 companies in ecommerce use ChannelAdvisor and that speaks greatly for their product. They also have been around longer than any other vendor so I trust ChannelAdvisor's expertise above others.

Return on Investment

  • Faster lead conversion, definitely

  • Faster Activation on New Marketplaces/Comparison Shopping Engines: With most new websites we look to expand to, I've been able to completely map our entire product feed and go "live" with our listings in under a week. It's a very quick turnaround. We've actually been able to launch three new marketplaces in the last few months.
  • Increased Employee Efficiency: ChannelAdvisor removes a lot of the manual optimization typically needed to manage a product feed. This has freed up a ton of time to focus efforts elsewhere.
