Omnichannel Management at No Extra Cost

For Shopify users who are in need of a reliable POS system to link their physical and online stores, Shopify POS syncs all sales channels. Fortunately for ecomdash customers, our Shopify integration not only syncs and automates inventory and sales orders from your online marketplaces – it also seamlessly pulls in and updates information from your brick-and-mortar locations through Shopify POS. Our built in shipping module and FTP feeds will allow Shopify users to communicate with and send purchase orders to suppliers for full omnichannel automation. Connecting with Shopify POS will prevent stock outs, and eliminate the time wasted manually updating inventory quantities on sales channels when an item sells in store.

Migration from Magento Go – It’s Going, Going…Gone

Magento announced last year that their shopping cart catered specifically to small businesses – Magento Go – would be shutting down. Speculation as to why the website provider who’s other two shopping cart extensions are widely popular would kill their small business software ranged from Magento’s decision to focus on their enterprise level software and Go’s inability to stand up against competitors Shopify and Bigcommerce. Shopify quickly developed tools to facilitate the migration from Magento Go to their own platform, releasing a free-to-download app that easily imports products, collections, customers, product variations, images, weight and inventory. Magento Go officially closes February 1st of this year – meaning retailers looking to migrate to Shopify must do so quickly. Shopify is offering a 10% discount to retailers who move their stores from Magento Go to their ecommerce website platform.

Ecomdash and Shopify

With our Shopify inventory solution, Shopify customers will be able to perform the following tasks from the ecomdash dashboard:

  • Quickly reprint shipping labels and view the archive of past shipped orders from the ‘Bulk Shipping Support’ screen. If you are managing returns and exchanges after the holiday season, this will help you easily reprint a new label for a customer.
  • If you buy postage, the Endicia Work Share/Consolidator program is now supported.
  • Further customize your packing slips. A thoughtful and cleverly done packing slip can help create repeat customers or encourage positive feedback from buyers. You can generate these directly from the ‘Paid – Ready to Ship’ screen.
  • Track your best sellers from this past holiday season through the reporting module. You can now track information by SKU and also view the number of sales per month, per quarter and per year.
