Step by Step Process for Outsourcing E-Commerce Product Data Entry

Global retail e-commerce sales are projected to reach $4.5 trillion by 2021, which is a significant increase of 246.15%. Businesses are looking for solutions to help them manage this accelerated trajectory and are turning to outsourcing to obtain critical support for essential e-commerce tasks.

Product data entry is necessary, but a complex and time-consuming task that's vulnerable to errors when handled by inexperienced personnel or insufficient, inferior resources. It requires a strategic combination of human skill and automated technologies to perform accurately. Consumers can find it challenging to search for potential products from thousands to even millions of individual product items. Well-executed product data entry ensures that they can locate offerings quickly based on uniquely defined search criteria.

Data Entry Outsourced (DEO) is a reputed product data entry partner with skills in performing all aspects of e-commerce product data management. DEO utilizes e-commerce CMS technologies towards the development of product entry, product pricing, categorization, stock information management, product image tagging, and product coding.

Upholding International E-commerce Regulations with Trusted Outsourcing Practices

We adhere to the strict global ethics upheld by the Federal Trade Commission's "Electronic Commerce: Selling Internationally A Guide for Businesses," and the International Trade Administration's (ITA) "Country Commercial Guides." Both of these entities outline protocols and suggestions for retail e-commerce practices regarding sales of goods and services for over 125 countries. In particular, they stress the importance of providing clear, truthful, and accurate product information on your website.
