Frequently Asked Questions

Yes, as the Iceshop team delivers e-commerce solutions, it closely cooperates with the Icecat team to ensure quality and meet customer business needs for both product content and its integration.
While Icepim caters to resellers and merchants usage, Icecat PIM (Free Vendor Central) targets content providers. Free Vendor Central allows brands to register for free, create descriptions, upload images, etc., making this content accessible on icecat.biz to all users. In contrast, Icepim serves as a comprehensive system for managing product information, enriching products with Icecat data, manage their pricing, warehousing, and exporting to e-commerce platforms. The platforms differ in their target audience and functionalities.

The solutions offered by Icecat and Iceshop are not competitive but complementary. Icecat provides product content, whereas Iceshop focuses on its management and integration. If content enrichment alone is the priority, Icecat may be sufficient. However, for more advanced solutions that include supplier integration and product information management, Iceshop’s offerings provide added value. The choice depends on the specific business needs of each customer.
While Icecat focuses on content (product descriptions, images, bullet points, product stories, etc.), it doesn’t automate connections with suppliers, content and product management. Conversely, Iceshop offers solutions like Iceimport and Icepim (PIM system), allowing for management of pricing, assortment, and warehousing alongside Icecat-enriched products.
