How Channergy works with Rakuten
Channergy downloads orders from your Rakuten (formerly Buy.com) store at the intervals you specify. It also uploads any changes to products as they occur (e.g., quantity or price changes). And, each day Channergy uploads your shipping information for each order, including tracking numbers.
Rakuten is an online marketplace that started in 1997 as buy.com that allows you to sell everything from books to jewelry.
How Does It work?
To sell on Rakuten you must create an account which registers you to sell on the marketplace. Only approved US businesses with a tax ID can sell on the Rakuten Marketplace. If you are a sole proprietor you need to provide a social security number.
Through Rakuten, selling is simple and to the point but there are specified rules regarding the following…
- Payment processing
- Tracking information
There are no listing fees on Rakuten but there is a commission of $0.99 per item and set percentage of the selling price, which changes depending on the product category. This commission percentage will not exceed 15%.
