Data and reports in one spot

Sales, web traffic, number of products still in inventory and other relevant information is easily accessible in our app. You can filter the data by time, country, product and other criteria. You can automatically generate various graphs or perhaps a geographic map of sales.

Automation will do your work for you.

We leave the routine work up to the algorithms. Retailys will watch the changes in VAT and exchange rates for you, and will prevent the customer from ordering products that are already sold out. By synchronizing your e-shops expanding to additional countries will be significantly faster and smoother.

Online marketplace and price comparing websites

In Czech we will connect your E-shop to the most widely used online marketplaces and price comparing websites such as, Zboží.cz, Heureka or MALL Marketplace. Abroad we will connect you into Amazon, Ebay, German Idealo, British PriceRunner, Polish Ceneo and other platforms.

We share our knowledge

Why sell on Amazon?

It is no longer a question of whether people shop online but how frequently they will buy and how much will they spend. However, the real question is why is Amazon so important for your e-commerce portfolio when expanding into Europe?

New integration – Cookiebot by Usercentrics

Cookies are an important part of every website, which allows you to obtain valuable analytical and marketing information about your visitors. However, the new legislation requires very precise cookie settings under existing electronic communications laws, across the EU.
