Growing your online business can pose multiple challenges. One of them is managing the inventory. As the business expands into new markets across multiple sales channels, manual management of operations can be a hassle. Retail business owners operating offline and on Amazon have just the right tool at their disposal. Lightspeed Amazon Integration streamlines the business processes by synchronizing the inventory between Lightspeed and Amazon stores.
Let us explore the key features of integrating Lightspeed POS into an Amazon store.
What is Lightspeed Integration?
Lightspeed POS (Point of sale) is a technology solution that seamlessly integrates with shopping carts and online marketplaces to keep the inventory in sync across multiple channels. As sellers understand that in order to maximize sales, they must sell both online and offline as more selling channels would result in higher sales. Lightspeed integration allows easy management of orders, inventory, and customers on both online and offline channels. It can be easily integrated with eCommerce platforms such as Amazon, eBay, Walmart, Shopify, BigCommerce, WooCommerce, Magento, and many more.
Why 3rd Party Retailers Should Opt For Lightspeed Integration?
Amazon is one of the largest marketplaces in the world where millions of customers shop daily. Third-party y sellers have a great opportunity to start marketing their products on the platform. However, with an increase in order volumes, sellers may find it difficult to manually keep a track of everything. Integrating Lightspeed with their Amazon store can open door to a range of benefits. Following are some of the notable advantages:
- Easy inventory management
- Reduced risk of overselling
- Greater cost-savings
