When a business has a bricks and mortar store alongside their online shop, keeping inventory counts and pricing in sync can get messy. Unless the business is using an integrated Point of Sale system, or POS. Here at Website World, our POS is bundled FREE with our eCommerce hosting plans. Let's take a look at why you too should take advantage of our built in POS.
Having a POS system is already beneficial to the merchant, even without a website. That's because a POS system gives them a way to sell products in person to their customers. There are two kinds of POS - cloud based POS which requires an internet connection, but can be used wherever you have one, and on-premise POS which keeps the data within a single retail store, so can't be used on a device elsewhere for instance.
An eCommerce store with an integrated point of sale system, like what we provide free with our eCommerce hosting plans, gives the merchant the ability to make a physical sale wherever they have an internet connected device. Additional benefits of choosing a website platform which has an integrated point of sale system such as ours includes:
As well as integrated point of sale systems, there are also separate stand alone options such as Unleashed, Vend, and TidyStock. While not a 'part' of our eCommerce platform, these inventory management systems will integrate with our shopping cart and update regularly.
