Convictional vs. Commercehub

With multiple e-commerce platform integrations, automated inventory and shipping updates, affordable pricing, and autonomous merchandising tools, find out why retailers are switching to Convictional from CommerceHub for their dropship automation needs.

Four reasons retailers choose Convictional over CommerceHub

4 ecommerce platform integrations

CommerceHub has zero ecommerce platform integrations. Suppliers have to manually share order and inventory data with retailers through CommerceHub’s portal or by uploading CSV/XLSX files, or through technically challenging methods like EDI and API. We’re not kidding — this is how suppliers are meant to connect with CommerceHub. Read support documentation from DSCO, a CommerceHub platform.

Convictional has native platform integrations with Shopify, WooCommerce, BigCommerce, and Magento 2. You can onboard vendors on any of these platforms in 30 minutes, completely self-serve. Order, product, and inventory data syncs seamlessly between your systems and your vendors.

CommerceHub is so clunky to use that some brands — like this one — are using Convictional to connect to CommerceHub.

Automated inventory and shipping information

If your vendors aren’t connecting with CommerceHub using highly technical paths like EDI, SFTP or API, they have to update inventory and shipping data for their orders manually.

Convictional pulls inventory and shipping information from your vendor’s ecommerce platform automatically. This reduces the likelihood of overselling products and out-of-stocks, and gives you tracking information you can share with your customers efficiently.

Affordable pricing that makes sense

Commercehub charges both retailers and suppliers to use their platform. Suppliers have to pay implementation fees (~$2000 on average) to get set up on CommerceHub. They can also have to pay a monthly fee per connection and per-order fees as well.

Convictional doesn’t charge suppliers — we only charge retailers. Our pricing is aimed to be affordable for every retailer. Our Standard Plan is 3% of monthly sales and our Growth Plan is $2000/month and 1% of monthly sales.

Autonomous merchandising

CommerceHub may be able to bring in your vendor’s products in your marketplace. But it can’t easily merchandise these products to fit your marketplace’s standards.

Convictional’s Autonomous Merchandising feature automates the bulk of your merchandising needs:

  1. Product Data Transformations: We transform vendor product data, like product titles, product copy, and product imagery, to conform to your brand standards.
  2. Product Data Validation: We’ll flag product data you require from vendors — ingredient lists, size guides, language translations, barcodes, and more — and notify brands to include them in your product listings.
  3. Product Taxonomy Alignment [Beta]: We’ll align new products to your existing product taxonomy, so that they live in the right categories and collections on your site.
