Shopify Integration Benefits
The efficiency gained through this Integration will increase your overall productivity, eliminate the customer service issues between your brick & mortar and online locations, resulting in greater profitability sooner, and a superior Customer experience.
The integration will manage the inventories between your physical locations and your e-commerce site, syncing the available quantities, allocating purchases made on the online store and communicating that to the brick and mortar locations. The reverse, removing purchases made in the brick and mortar stores and removing them from the available to sell on the online store, is also true.
Any changes in your brick and mortar locations, such as sales and returns, inventory allocations, new inventory receipts, return to vendors, and inventory adjustments will automatically update the online store.
Other item details, such as item description, regular and promotion prices, item weights, as well item classifiers that may be used as “tags” for the purposes of online item merchandising. These can be effectively managed and synced between CounterPoint and the e-commerce platform.
Orders placed on the online store would download into CounterPoint advising your staff to pick, complete and ship the orders. Then subsequently transfer the order details to your online platform to process payment and notify your clients.
The standard sync cycle runs every 15 minutes, and can be changed based on your business needs.
