Hello, I currently use Quickbooks POS at my brick and mortar store, and we have a web store built using Shopify. We are looking for a solution that can help with 3 things:
- Sync our web and POS inventories.
- Allow gift cards purchased in our brick and mortar to be used on our web store.
- Allow for e-gift certificates purchased on our web store to be used in our brick and mortar store.
Please let me know if this is something you can offer and what the price would be for something like that.
Thank you for your interest in Modern Retail and our Quickbooks POS Integrator. We’d love to help you with your Shopify/Quickbooks POS integration. I think we may be able to help you, but it will depend on a couple of factors:

If you’re using a software-based solution that’s installed on your PC, there will be some inherent risks with using it as the article above explains. For this reason, we prefer a cloud-based Gift Card solution like:
Please give me a little more information about Shopify, the gift cards you’re using, and if you’d be willing to switch, and I’ll see what we can do to help you. Thank you.
