When we think of ecommerce, we think of utilising the latest technology to provide seamless end-to-end business solutions for online merchants, and superior experiences for end consumers. What better way to achieve this than by integrating Smallfish online stores with magnificently designed point of sale (POS) and accounting systems?
Vend Point of Sale Integration
Synchronise your stock levels in-store and online – add a product within Vend and it automatically appears in your Smallfish store; sell that product online and the sale automatically imports to Vend, saving you a lot of precious time.
A common challenge for stores that have both a physical and online presence is that the web shop and physical store products are one and the same. Ideally, you want your stock levels to reflect this. Thankfully, there is a solution. When using Vend, new products that you add into the system automatically appear within your Smallfish store and stock levels are automatically synchronised. Sell a product in your bricks-and-mortar store and it will automatically go out of stock on your site. Sell a product online and the purchase will be instantly visible within your POS system so you know to scoop it off the shelf before a walk-in customer leaves the shop with it and you have to chase them down the street. The results? You’re happy with an automated and easy-to-manage system that effectively cuts your work in half, your customers are happy with their fantastic shopping experience, and everyone is happy they’re not re-enacting a chase scene from America’s Most Wanted.

Xero Accounting Integration
All online sales automatically appear in Xero – the world’s easiest accounting software – so you can focus on growing your business, not getting caught up in numbers.
With your point of sale system running smoothly thanks to Vend, you no doubt want to keep up-to-date with the financial side of your business too. But who wants to slave for hours on end, over figures that don’t make a heck of a lot of sense on their own? That’s where Xero comes in. Integrate Vend with this “beautiful accounting software” and all your online sales that were automatically recorded in Vend will automatically appear in Xero. You then have the means to create and send invoices, view bank reconciliation and cashflow statements, and much more. As Xero is web-based, it is also easy to collaborate with others, like your accountant. It really is the world’s easiest accounting software and will help you run your online business better and faster. If you don’t use Vend, you can still integrate your Smallfish store with Xero for easy online accounting solutions.
