eBay's Merchant Integration Platform (MIP) is eBay's technology used for on-boarding large and strategic retailers into the eBay Marketplace. There are many challenges when integrating a large e-commerce website within an external marketplace such as eBay.com. The MIP is used to make that process easier and more reliable.
As eBay's integration partner, Kadro works with eBay's retail clients to provide the consultative and technical integration services required to complete the integration between the clients' e-commerce platform and eBay's MIP.
As an alternative to a direct API integration, manual or third party commission based services, the Merchant Integration Platform was developed to:
Designed with merchant flexibility in mind, MIP provides the ability to transfer data to eBay via flat files. With configurable file formats the integration time with eBay is traditionally delivered in a 6-8 week time frame.
"After a referral from Jeffrey Gitomer, I decided to explore how Kadro could help improve my online business in Swim Lessons University. It had been doing mediocre at best since 1999, but I believed I had a product that could easily fill a void in my industry. The problem, I felt, was it just was getting its potential online prescence to finally take off.... That is all changing now thanks to Kadro. In 2010, Swim Lessons University created a partnership with Kadro which may just turn out to be one of the best decisions I've made in my online business career. The guidance I have received from Kadro to help grow my business has been invaluable, not to mention their fantastic customer support, technical support, and even individual guidance and one on one consultations from their CEO, Rick Johnson. Without saying, I recommend Kadro without reservation!" Jim ReiserFounder and President, Swim Lessons University
