Shopify offers several third-party integrations. In general, third-party integrations have their pros and cons. First, you have the ability to utilize an application designed specifically for a single function – for example, Shopify offers accounting integration with QuickBooks Online. Conversely, having third-party integrations requires additional fees and forces you to use multiple software platforms, which takes away from a POS system’s ability to automate and consolidate multiple business functions.
Some of Shopify’s integrations include: Xero (accounting), ecomdash (multi-channel inventory management), Stitch Labs (reports), Collect (customer loyalty), and MailSync (email marketing).
