How It Works

ShopSync works on Windows computers, by watching changes in your point-of-sale database as well as online shop database and it there's a transaction on any end, it updates the other end automatically. The checking is done on a specified interval, e.g. every 5 minutes.

Let's looks at at a couple of examples.

Example 1

Somebody makes an online purchase. Here's what happens on the next ShopSync check:

  • Detect which products were purchased
  • Record a purchase in the point-of-sale database using information from online order.
  • Decrease quantities of purchased products.
  • Your point-of-sale database and web database are syncronised.

Example 2

Two purchases are made in your retail shop within 5 minutes. Here's what happens on the next ShopSync check:

  • Detect which products were purchased
  • Decrease quantities of purchased products in the web database using information from the order.
  • Your point-of-sale database and web database are syncronised.

Example 3

You add a new product to your point-of-sale database. Here's what happens on the next ShopSync check:

  • Detect which products were added
  • Add these new products to the web database using information from the point-of-sale database.
  • Your point-of-sale database and web database are syncronised.

If you already have a website and/or online shop, we can ShopSync-enable it for you.
