Holiday Season - are you prepared?
This year's Amazon Prime Day will not be the same as in years past. The dates announced are the 13th and 14th October, three months later than its usual July timeframe, with Black Friday falling on Friday 27th November and Cyber Monday on 30th November. While many tactical Prime / Black Friday / Cyber Monday preparations still apply, there are several considerations to you should bear in mind.
Below we have broken down a handy guide we recommend having in place before Prime Day.
Staying on top of your inventory
Maintaining a good stock inventory is an important factor in generating sales on Amazon and your own website. With Blade - our own inventory Management Software, we are able to split inventory stock across marketplace platforms so you can clearly mange your stock levels. Especially during a high-traffic event like Prime Day. In addition, you can manage you inventory stock for various marketplaces in one place as well as track when orders come in, when they are dispatched and which courier has been used.
With Blade you will have a full view of your stock, market places, orders and shipping rules all in one place. You can download the Blade app on Android and iOS and track your orders on the go.
If at any point you need help our team of in-house specialists can support you whenever you need it.

As soon as your stock arrives in our warehouse it will be checked in and processed in a timely manner. Meaning you have the stock available to sell as soon as its checked into Blade.
