We are launching our e-commerce site on WooCommerce. Our locations use Xstore as the POS, and the backend system is WinRetail. We are looking at ways to connect these. I wanted to hear if you had any ideas.
Thank you for your interest in Modern Retail and our WooCommerce Integrator. Yes, we’d love to help you connect Xstore/WinRetail to WooCommerce. As I’m sure you noticed, we have connections with 2 dozen POS/ERP systems now and have done over 1,300 integrations in the past 10 years. Needless to say, this is not our first rodeo.
I’ve been doing some research into Oracle Retail Xstore Point-of-Service and WinRetail to see if I could find an application programming interface (API). After some hunting, it looks like Cegid purchased JDS Solutions last year. The thing I can’t quite figure out is the relationship between JDS Solutions and Oracle Xstore. I found a couple of screen shots of both systems and they look nearly identical.
What’s the relationship between WinRetail and Oracle Xstore? My guess is we need to integrate with Oracle Xstore, but I’m not sure.
We have a few different methods of doing these integrations which is explained in the following article:
May I make a suggestion? Could you please e-mail your representative at Oracle or WinRetail and let them know you’re interested in getting their system integrated with your WooCommerce website? If you copy me on the message, I’ll immediately reply asking to set up a meeting. Getting our developers to talk with their developers, even for 30 minutes, makes a huge difference and can really help to “jump start” the integration efforts.
You’ll find we’re experts at POS and ERP integrations:
- Building a Better Mousetrap
- Avoid Overselling (Allocation) - Absolutely a brilliant feature!
- Difference Engine

You’ll love our WooCommerce Integrator Dashboard, which gives you an overview of the status of your integration.
I suspect you’re also interested in how the integration works from the WooCommerce side, so please read:
Please let me know if you need anything else or would like to jump on a call before getting with Oracle/WinRetail. Thank you.
