Introducing Vend + WooCommerce: Our Newest Ecommerce Integration

At Vend, we’re committed to helping retailers bring together the perfect solution for their retail business, and that includes connecting to the apps they already love to use. That’s why we’re thrilled to announce our newest integration with WooCommerce, the #1 most popular ecommerce platform in the world.

Now you can truly tailor your online and in-store needs to suit your business. Vend is the ideal POS for managing inventory-based retail, while WooCommerce is the most customizable ecommerce solution available on the market. As a free plugin for WordPress, WooCommerce offers all the essentials to open an online store and start selling. You can easily select and pay for the features you actually want to use, as you need them.

Vend and WooCommerce work together so you can centrally manage your day-to-day business in Vend, while online sales roll in with WooCommerce. There’s an instant two-way sync of sales, products, inventory, and customers between both platforms.

Here’s how you can enjoy the benefits of smarter retail with Vend and WooCommerce, together.

Save time and manage everything from one place

Connecting your point of sale to your online store brings everything together to improve operations and save precious time. You can centrally manage sales, customers, inventory, and reports in Vend, while everything is kept up-to-date across digital and physical stores. With less manual double-entry and unnecessary admin, there’s more hours in the day to focus on what’s important — whether that’s your business strategy, or spending time with loved ones.

Sell wherever shoppers want to buy

Embrace true omnichannel and open your store to billions of users by connecting Vend and WooCommerce to Facebook, Instagram and other online marketplaces. All sales, inventory and customer data are tracked from these channels to WooCommerce and Vend instantly, so you can ensure you’re only selling the stock you actually have. Customers from in-store and online sales can be managed from one database, making it easy to delight and reward loyal shoppers to keep them coming back.

Boost profits by ensuring top-selling products are always available to sell

Get the most out of sales across your channels by choosing your most popular products to sell on WooCommerce. Inventory can be displayed on WooCommerce from one chosen brick-and-mortar store, or from selected store locations and warehouses to sell online. With Vend’s insights into what’s selling best and where, you can make more informed buying decisions across your business.

Is WooCommerce the right option for your retail business?

WooCommerce is great for retailers of all sizes. In fact, it’s the most popular ecommerce platform in the world. It’s a free plugin for WordPress which runs 26% of the web, so if you already have a WordPress account you can easily plug-and-play WooCommerce into your existing website, as it’s made to work alongside the plugins you already use!

You can fully customize your online store too. A global community of stores and developers gives you access to thousands of storefront themes. With a modular business model, you can start free with all the essentials, and then add other features you want to use as your business grows. Plus, you’ll have peace of mind knowing your data truly belongs to you, with the highest security standards.

If you’re still unsure, get in touch with the team at Vend and we’ll be happy to help.

Vend and WooCommerce will be free to use on Vend’s Pro and Enterprise plans. Find out more.
