General information about ManoMano
ManoMano is an eCommerce site born with the very clear idea of covering the space in the "do it yourself" and "gardening" product categories. Selling on ManoMano means reaching an audience of over 50 million unique visitors per month and being able to attend the markets of France, Italy, Spain, Germany and the United Kingdom.
How to sell on ManoMano
To start selling on ManoMano you must first apply for membership as a commercial partner: the application to participate in the marketplace is forwarded from this page and, after sending, you will be contacted for a response.
The selection process takes into account a series of parameters that you will need to communicate during the application phase, such as:
- the current online turnover
- the number of products you have available
- the shipping times that you can guarantee
- the nature of your company (importer, distributor, etc.)
During the application phase, you may then be asked to send an example of the file containing the articles you want to publish, in a .csv, xml or .xls format. Although optional, missing this set of information can result in a longer response time.
The advice is therefore to start filling in the form having all the data at hand.
Identikit of the ideal seller for Manomano
The seller who starts operating on ManoMano is a professional person. The standards required by the marketplace are of high quality and require a particularly organized approach.
Although we do not know in detail the selection criteria that the company uses, the experience gained with other sellers teaches us that the breadth of the catalog has its own relevance for the purpose of accepting the partnership application. So if you are a distributor with a small selection of range then the chances of being accepted as a partner are reduced.
Remember that the product categories are particularly focused on DIY and gardening: take a look at the navigation menu of the site to get an idea on whether the products you are dealing with may have an available category.
“For over 8 years I have been helping sellers form different product categories, company sizes and with even specific needs. I am happy when I help organizations to achieve the goals we setted up.”

Payments and logistics
The payment model is the typical one of each marketplace. Credit recovery, in fact, is operated by ManoMano which manages every single transaction with the final consumer.

As with all other online markets, the important part of the cost is given by the variable shares on the sales commissions. This commercial model makes the sale on ManoMano particularly attractive (as well as all the other markets) because it allows to make the acquisition cost of the sale variable.

eDock: discover all the advantages
Real-time updating on all platforms
eDock has a powerful notification engine that sends every single change relating to the quantities available in stock and prices in real time, to give you the opportunity to synchronize the stock of your products in stock with eBay, Amazon and other available marketplaces, in Italy and in the world. Thanks to this automation, eDock allows you to avoid negative feedback for those orders that you are forced to cancel if the purchased goods are no longer available.
API for integration with your management system
The set of REST APIs that we provide you with allows you to make technical integrations with any software, using the eDock engine as if you directly own its technology. Many companies have already integrated their company management with Amazon or eBay, through eDock. In this scenario of use, eDock allows you to receive orders from Amazon or eBay directly on your management system or on your ERP and to keep the stock of your products in stock in the "online shopping centers" synchronized.
Differentiated price lists by market to sell at different prices on the platforms
With eDock you have the maximum commercial flexibility and the possibility to differentiate the selling price by market. You will thus be able to sell the same product on eBay Italy at a price, different from the one at which you sell it on eBay Germany, different from the one you sell it on Amazon. The flexibility of eDock, in this sense, allows you to be present with a commercial formula of appeal even when you "drown" the shipping costs in the price of the product.
Communication flows to facilitate your team in order management
eDock provides flexible and efficient order management. You can decide, in a completely personalized way, which "path" to take your order once it has been received. For each change to what is defined as "progress" of the order, then, you can trigger automated email communications that are directed to the customer or to the members of your organization.
Order tracking id on all markets
If you sell on marketplaces, you know the importance of keeping the "online shopping center" informed about the status of the shipment. With eDock you have the possibility to enter your "tracking number" so that eDock is concerned about communicating it to the reference platform.
Export to courier software
Exporting orders to your trusted courier is a useful feature to save you a lot of time. The function allows you to export all data relating to the recipient and to the destination to send the goods to the applications of the carrier called to perform the shipment.
If you want to sell online you need to acquire the eCommerce Manager skills
“I started from scratch with eCommerce-manager.org. Excluding some information on eBay, my eCommerce and marketplace skills were at ground zero. I followed the courses and entered the community and after eight months I started working with the first client.”
