Ebike categorization

The ebike products in SmartEtailing's catalog occupy a new dedicated branch in the Cycling catalog that sits on the same level as Bikes. This makes ebike products easily findable in the megamenu as a distinct category of product. Ebikes also retain their existing cross-categorizations with non-ebike.

Along with the new Electric category, you will notice the original electric sub-category still appears in your catalog. Before we remove the original, please take a moment to update any links on your homepage or internal pages to the old sub-category. 

Marketing Updates

Catalog updates

SmartEtailing added 1,025 new catalog items in March. The Content Team is seeing an increase in brand data as manufacturers resolve supply chain issues from the past year and prepare new products for spring releases.

Snow Sports catalog & purchase orders

In order to build the best Snow Sports catalog possible, we are asking all participating retailers to provide any purchase orders, brand and manufacturer contacts, and media resources that they have available. Information can be forwarded to

Embargoes and supply chain issues

SmartEtailing's Brand & Suppliers team works closely with our contacts at cycling manufacturers. We are tracking shifting embargo and release dates as supply chain issues continue to affect the cycling and outdoors industries. If you are waiting on a particular product, or need an estimate for when an item will be available in the Cycling or Snow Sports Catalog, please reach out to your SmartEtailing Client Success representative.
