"As of 2 months ago, ChannelAdvisor charges an upfront annual fee of $12,000 and a $1,000 implementation/launch fee per channel they assist in integrating. They also charge a commission of your sales ranging from 0.5% to ~2% based on monthly volume." 
"ChannelAdvisor isn’t the right solution for low turnover companies, and even at the Gold PowerSeller level of £6k/mth turnover it’s probably not suitable. It’s when a company grwos to £20-£30k/mth that it really justifies itself.
"It’s a serious business tool but Jonny did say that due to the costs (ChannelAdvisor charge a percentage of turnover) although at the £5-6k/mth level it’s not necessarily worth the investment, that level is probably the best time to learn the software. If your company is growing fast and you’re projecting turnover to reach £15-20k/mth in the near future you should seriously consider a solution like ChannelAdvisor sooner rather than later."
