Reputation

Tradebox is known for what many multichannel solutions are known for: making it simpler and easier to manage orders, inventory, and accounting for businesses that make their sales through ecommerce marketplaces. It is a very simple software to use, with very limited features that make certain processes easier for running an online business.

That is, if the business is located in the UK and does not use iOS software on their computers, else the program would not be the best fit.
