A tight POS and ecommerce integration is essential in today’s retail landscape. In order for your online storefront to run smoothly, your retail management system should keep your inventory, sales, and customers in sync, so you can focus less on things like data entry and devote more time to delighting your customers.
If you’re using Shopify, you’ll be thrilled to know that we’ve made significant improvements to help you do just that.
We value our Shopify users and we want you to have the best experience possible. These updates and new features will improve how you manage sales and orders, ultimately helping you serve your customers, drive sales, and stay competitive.
Manage and fulfill orders with ease
We’ve updated the Fulfillments page to give your staff one place to view, pack, and fulfill pickup & delivery orders. Perfect for retailers that are using click-and-collect, the Fulfillments page makes it easy for you to track orders that need to be packed and prepared for pickup.
If you’re a Vend user, all you need to do is navigate to Sell -> Fulfillments and search the order that needs to be fulfilled. (Or click here to go directly to your Vend account.)
You can now bulk publish products
You can now bulk publish or unpublish products to Shopify. This feature comes in handy if you have numerous products, as it lets you publish or unpublish multiple items in your catalog. This update simplifies your inventory workflows and helps you sync your products to your online store as quickly as possible.
To use this feature, just head to Products then select the items you want to publish or unpublish. (Or click here to go directly to your Vend account.)
Improving the stability of Vend’s Shopify integration
Thanks to feedback from Vend retailers, we’ve made improvements to the way products and sales sync between Vend and Shopify. Stabilization between Vend and Shopify has improved accuracy and reduced upload time for retailers using the integration.
More updates in the works
The improvements above are just the beginning. We’re working on a number of features and enhancements so you can have an even better experience using Vend and Shopify. Keep an eye out for the following updates:
- Syncing sale updates including additions, removals, refunds and changes to fulfillment locations
- Improved product image syncing
- In-app notifications for online orders
