Whereas the previous two month’s of updates largely had to do with design and updated pricing calculator/features, this month’s updates focuses more on expanding the range of JoeLister in terms of what you can sell and where you can sell from. Here’s the primer:
- MFN is now supported. Short for Merchant Fulfillment Network, MFN is when you ship products to customers directly from yourself. JoeLister makes this easy by making the eBay listing process exactly the same for FBA and MFN products; when this feature rolls out to everybody in a few days, you’ll see a dropdown toggle in your “Amazon Inventory” tab that allows you to switch from your FBA inventory and your MFN inventory.
- UK + Canada is now supported. Now, you can use JoeLister to list + fulfill on www.ebay.ca or www.ebay.co.uk!
With these updates, we hope that everyone can take advantage of the cross-listing capabilities that JoeLister has to offer, in more countries than just one.
