Optimizing Multichannel: Case Study with Cart.com and One Tree Brands

  • Quick read

Akash is the Director of One Tree Brands, a leading e-commerce agency specializing in the sale of vitamins, supplements, and over-the-counter products across various online marketplaces.

Before implementing SellerActive by Cart.com, One Tree Brands faced challenges in managing bundled listings accurately, streamlining fulfillment workflows, bulk listing across multiple marketplaces, and having visibility of Buy Box performance, all of which resulted in lost time, resources, and opportunities.

With Cart.com and SellerActive's Bundling functionality, ShipStation integration, bulk listing feature, and detailed reports and alerts these issues were swiftly resolved, setting the stage for improved operations and Buy Box capture increase from 42% to 83% in three months.


Navigating Challenges: A Prelude to Innovation

Before partnering with Cart.com, One Tree Brands faced several challenges in managing their multichannel e-commerce efforts.

Key challenges included:

  • Bundling complexities with multiple listings
  • Difficulty in maintaining accuracy for bundled SKUs
  • Time-consuming manual processes for listing products on various channels
  • Limited visibility into Buy Box performance
  • Inefficient order processing workflows across platforms

There were significant obstacles in effectively managing bundled listings and maintaining accuracy across various configurations such as 2-pack and 3-pack proved challenging.


"One of the biggest challenges we had before Cart.com was bundling. We have multiple 2 and 3 pack listings. Maintaining accuracy was tough. After using the Bundling functionality in SellerActive by Cart.com, we had eliminated issues such as overselling and underselling." - Akash, Director of One Tree Brands


In addition to bundling issues, Akash and his team found themselves losing valuable time manually adding and updating inventory listing parameters across multiple marketplaces including Walmart and Amazon. They needed a way to manage bulk inventory listing across all the marketplaces they sold on. 

Multichannel selling is integral to One Tree Brands' strategy, but making data-informed decisions for various marketplaces was challenging. The performance data available was spread across different marketplace platforms making it labor intensive to centralize and analyze. For example, it was not possible for Akash to get an overview of how his pricing strategies were performing across all the marketplaces One Tree Brands was selling on.

Finally, in order to streamline order fulfillment workflows, Akash wanted all the marketplaces One Tree Brands sold on to route orders through ShipStation utilizing only the master SKUs. This wasn't straightforward as it required setting up and maintaining multiple instances of ShipStation integrations across every marketplace.

The decision to choose Cart.com as their multichannel management platform stemmed from several factors, including the seamless flow of listing products and the ability to manage multiple listings of the same SKU efficiently.
