Ecwid, an ecommerce solution used to create online stores and add them to any web presence and multiple websites simultaneously, has released Ecwid POS-to-Online, a revolutionary new way for retailers with cloud-based point of sale (POS) systems to instantly publish products on the web and sell easily in-store and online.
No matter if a customer buys a product online or offline, a merchant's catalog, inventory, customer and transaction information always remain in sync. The solution is available immediately to users of First Data's Clover solution through the Clover App Market, a company release said.
Prior to Ecwid POS-to-Online, merchants looking to run an online store and a physical retail store either had to manage their product catalog, inventory, customer info and order data completely separately, or choose an ecommerce solution that locked them into a specific POS system and/or web presence. With Ecwid POS-to-Online, retailers have the flexibility to use their preferred POS system and web presence.
In one click, merchants instantly create an online store from their POS inventory and can manage both their online and offline commerce from a central location. When a sale is made either online or in-person, data is updated and synchronized automatically, providing seamless integration between online and in-store sales.
The Clover solution is an easy-to-use business management tool for business owners. It redefines the payment terminal, providing store owners with an "all-in-one" solution to streamline operations, expand business and customer intelligence, while facilitating payments in a safe, secure environment. Now by integrating with Ecwid and making the Ecwid ecommerce app available through its App Market, the Clover solution empowers business owners, who previously considered selling online too difficult to setup and manage, to easily open an online store and manage both in-store and online sales centrally from their Clover Station, Clover Mini or Clover Mobile.
"Business owners who use the Clover point-of-service solution can take advantage of this powerful offline/online integration immediately, by simply downloading the Ecwid app from the Clover App Market," said Mark Schulze, head of the Clover App Market.
