Connect Your Stores to the Free WordPress WooCommerce Platform
The WooCommerce POS interface with MicroBiz Cloud syncs inventory between your point of sale system and the WooCommerce ecommerce platform, helping you to manage inventory across your stores and online operations. Immediately after a transaction either online or in a store, the inventory syncs – minimizing the potential of the sale of an item online that is no longer in stock.
Link your MicroBiz system to the free WooCommerce ecommerce platform to sell in store and online
Connect MicroBiz to a free opensource WordPress/WooCommerce website in just a few minutes using the easy-to-use integration wizard. This integration manages the connection with the WooCommerce ecommerce platform – publishing new products, price updates and changes inventory to your ecommerce site and allowing you to manage inventory across your stores and online operations. The integration instantly captures online transactions in MicroBiz’s order management module, including the customer record, items sold and payment. When an item sells out in your store, the system immediately sends a stock update to WooCommerce – minimizing the potential of the sale of an item online that is no longer in stock.
Launch Your Woo! Store with MicroBiz Data
When setting-up a new ecommerce site, MicroBiz gives you the option to transfer your existing product records from MicroBiz to WooCommerce. MicroBiz syncs the main product record fields to WooCommerce (SKU, short description, price, default image) – saving you time and money launching your online shopping site.
Capture Online Sales in MicroBiz
When an item is sold online, a customer record and a customer order record is automatically created in MicroBiz, including the customer data, items sold, price, taxes, payments and shipping cost. The default store inventory is adjusted for the online sale once its accepted and marked complete.
Sync Store of Inventory with WooCommerce
MicroBiz seamlessly synchronizes changes in inventory between your store system and your ecommerce store to reflect sales activity. The syncing of the last unit of inventory occurs immediately after a transaction, minimizing the potential of ‘stock outs’ or the sale of an item online that is no longer available or in stock.
Support ‘Buy Online and Pick-up in Store’
The integration with WooCommerce allows MicroBiz captures the fulfilment method requested by the online customer in the ecommerce record created in MicroBiz. This information can then be used to manage the fulfilment of the order in MicroBiz.
Quick and Easy Set Up
Set up your sync between MicroBiz and WooCommerce in just a few minutes. Enter your WooCommerce URL into MicroBiz, create a direct API connection using secure keys, generate a webhook to capture orders and match your shipping methods and tax rates. Once connected, products, customers and orders will be synced between your POS system and your ecommerce site.
Push Product Data From MicroBiz to Woo with One Click
When setting-up your synced system, MicroBiz gives you the option to either transfer your existing product records from MicroBiz Cloud to WooCommerce, or if you have an active WooCommerce site, transfer your existing product records from WooCommerce to MicroBiz. MicroBiz syncs the main product record fields to WooCommerce (SKU, short description, price, default image).
Manage Online Sales in MicroBiz
When an online order is made in WooCommerce, MicroBiz captures the order and displays it in the MicroBiz Order Management module, including the item sold, quantity, customer data and payment and tax information. If it’s a new online customer, MicroBiz automatically creates a new customer record. If it’s a repeat customer, MicroBiz matches the order to the existing customer record in MicroBiz.
Automatic Sync of Inventory Levels with Woo!
MicroBiz seamlessly synchronizes changes in inventory between your store system and your ecommerce store to reflect sales activity. When an item is sold in a retail store, MicroBiz sends a message to WooCommerce with the updated inventory of the item. When an item is sold online, the order is pulled into MicroBiz, and stock is automatically adjusted.
Combined Website and Physical Store Reporting
When linking an ecommerce site, MicroBiz creates a virtual store that contains all the sales made online from your WooCommerce site. This allows you to run reports in MicroBiz that contain both online and store activities, or you can filtered by store that show only the sales, transactions and orders from your WooCommerce store.
Create Private Microsites for Top Customers
You can use standard plugins to create password restricted private websites in WooCommerce. These microsites can be used to display a curated set of products for a top clinic or hospital, including only the items that an employer wants its employees to purchase. Orders from these microsites flow to MicroBiz as standard orders including details on the purchaser and items ordered.
Instant Adjustment of Out of Stock Items
When you sell the last of an item, MicroBiz immediately sends a message to WooCommerce that the item is no longer in stock. This allows WooCommerce to display an ‘out of stock’ message for the product on the website or hide/remove the item from the public website (depending on Woo settings).
Buy Online and Pick-up in Store
WooCommerce allows the purchaser to choose the fulfillment method for the order (ship, delivery, store pick up). When the online order is captured in MicroBiz, the fulfilment information is transferred to MicroBiz, allowing the handling of the item to be managed in MicroBiz.
