With the E-commerce market now more valuable than ever, many small businesses and entrepreneurs are branching out into the online retail world. With starting an online business comes the need to have a visible platform to sell on. This is where Shopify comes in.
Shopify is a fully functioning commerce platform that gives business owners a customisable website to share their brand and sell their products. The platform itself is now so popular it has over 1million users, a statistic that highlights the current demand in online retail.
The problem that is faced however by many e-commerce businesses is the transferring of data between their e-commerce platform and accounting software. We see all too often organisations that manually export/import data from sites like Shopify to accounting software such as Sage 50. This process brings with it a host of potential problems.
Transferring data manually is a time-consuming process. Without integration data such as orders, customers and payments will need to be transferred manually, hindering time spent on business objectives.
Without the automated transfer of data, you introduce human error. When entering copious amounts of data manually, naturally errors will be made. These issues can have a detrimental effect on your business. Imagine entering an incorrect product code from a Shopify sale into Sage 50, that small error could lead to a customer receiving the incorrect goods. A customer receiving the wrong product will not only cost the business money to rectify but could potentially harm brand perception.
Having accurate, real-time inventory data without automation is an extremely difficult ask. This becomes most apparent during periods of high sales. A period of high demand could lead to the overselling of a product. This means you risk being unable to meet a customer’s order in the time promised as you will need to restock the product.
