Vend vs. ShopKeep

Vend focuses exclusively on retail.

One of the reasons our customers love Vend is that we focus on retail 100%. We’re not distracted with other industries or business types, and our solution is built specifically for retailers. Plus, members of our Customer Success and Support teams come from retail backgrounds, so you’ll be dealing with people who understand what you’re going through.

Why Choose Vend?

Additionally, Vend is compatible with a wider range of industry-standard point of sale hardware, including receipt printers, barcode scanners, and cash drawers you may already own.

Worldwide support and features.

Unlike ShopKeep, which doesn’t offer support outside the US and Canada, Vend caters to retailers around the globe.

Other retailers agree: Vend is better than ShopKeep.

“Vend can manage multiple inventory locations and this is huge for those who have several stores. We have 9 locations, and managing these through ShopKeep would have been impossible. Vend's customer support team is also very responsive... we didn’t receive that level of service with ShopKeep.”
