Shopify is one of the world’s leading platforms for launching an eCommerce business. The ease of controlling the basic operations of your online business is one of the key highlights of Shopify. However, with the increasing amount of data over time, it becomes a daunting task to keep a track of everything. Manual tracking is not an option as any error may lead to losses. Since the majority of online stores list their products on several web portals, and also sell offline, maintaining the right inventory data becomes critical.
In this article, we talk about the importance of QuickBooks eCommerce integration into your Shopify store and the benefits you get in doing so.
What does Quickbooks eCommerce integration mean?
Quickbooks eCommerce integration facilitates seamless integration of Quickbooks POS (point of sale) with shopping carts and marketplaces. It is an essential tool for eCommerce businesses that significantly reduces errors that occur during manual data entry. During the sales processes, eCommerce store owners do not have to update data manually every time. With Quickbooks integration, data entry becomes an easy task as stock levels remain updated across all sales channels, both online and offline.
Benefits Of Quickbooks POS with Shopify
Managing the web store manually can be time-consuming, especially when you’re selling products both online and offline. Thus, the need for automation becomes inevitable as it eliminates error-prone data entry mechanisms. Quickbooks POS is an apt tool to get this done as it eases the maintenance of data across all sales channels. The automation ensures real-time updates of the inventory data to significantly improve customers’ shopping experiences.
