You also provide more integrated and consistent customer service. Even small firms can harness the power of automated systems to impress customers, and become more efficient and responsive.

Centralised inventory & stock control

Linnworks Express allows you to link multiple listings and auctions to a single product, with automatic updates across all channels if an item sells.

It supports composite products, bundles and packs, giving you flexibility and control over your stock. You can sell items individually or as part of a gift basket and Linnworks will recognise if the component parts have been sold, as well as automatically unlist the composite when necessary. Linnworks even includes:

  • Support for drop shipping
  • Support for Just-In-Time ordering  - improve cash flow by ordering from your supplier only when orders are placed, instead of stocking internally
  • Support for Stock Purchasing management
  • Support for feeds from supplier  - choose to add supplier stock levels to your inventory.

Using Linnworks, you have total control and visibility over your stock levels – and you are able to share the information directly with your sales channel. You can record both stock levels and stock values for each item; and every change in stock levels is recorded, delivering a live and constantly updated stock level history.

Shipping management for over 20+ couriers

With Linnworks Express on board, you can print postage labels for your current orders directly to the printer with customer delivery information included. Linnworks will record tracking numbers for the consignments and will submit a parcel tracking information back to channels once an order is processed.
