WooCommerce vs WP eCommerce with POS Integration

Question

We are moving our website to a CMS (still undecided), I would like it to be Wordpress if I can find all of the pieces that will work together.

I need an integration that will sync customers from a Wordpress ecommerce website to my point of sale system so we can look up the customer when they are at the counter.

  1. Do you recommend WooCommerce or WP eCommerce?
  2. Second, I need to know if WP eCommerce or WooCommerce will sync customers with my POS?

Thank you for any assistance you can provide.

Answer

We would be happy to help if we can.  I don't think you can go wrong with picking WordPress as you content management system (CMS).  WordPress owns nearly half the CMS market and we love it.

This is somewhat of a bias answer given we've been working WordPress exclusively since 2010.  If you're looking at ecommerce platforms for WordPress you'll probably look at WooCommerce and WP eCommerce.  We have no experience with WP eCommerce and have been focus solely on WooCommerce.  Our decision to focus on WooCommerce has more to do about market share and this is where WooCommerce definitely shines.  Not only does WooCommerce have more market share than WP eCommerce, it also has more implementations than any other ecommerce platform.

Now to dive into your questions.  Yes, we can definitely get WooCommerce integrated with your store's point of sale system.  Currently we support over 2 dozen systems but this number is literally growing every month.  For a current list of POS systems we can get integrated with WooCommerce, please visit this page:
