We're a bike shop with an existing Wordpress and WooCommerce website that's running well, but it's not connected to our POS system. We currently run MYOB Retail Manager, but want to change to something that we can use to integrate and synchronize our website sales with. We're currently looking into Retail Express, but can't see it on the list of your supported integration platforms. Do you know how much would be involved in making it work? Alternatively, we'd love to hear a recommendation for alternative software that works well that would serve our purposes better.
Thank you for your interest in our WooCommerce integrator. First of all I would like to tell you that you’ve done a wonderful job with your website! It really shows the power of WooCommerce and WordPress with content and shopping merged together!
We don’t yet have an integration with Retail Express but we’d love to have one! I’ve noticed that Retail Express designs and builds website as well as offering the POS system. It looks like their package is based on Magento. While we been working with Magento for years, we believe you need to give your customers options. You might want to have a conversation with Retail Express to see if their even open to working with Modern Retail. We’d love to work with them and offer other ecommerce platforms as well (we currently support Bigcommerce, Shopify, WooCommerce and Magento).
May I make a suggestion? Could you please e-mail your representative at Retail Express and let them know you’re interested in getting Retail Express integrated with your WooCommerce website? If you copy me on the message, I’ll immediately reply asking to set up a meeting with Retail Express. 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.
I would like to try to see if we can work with Retail Express first. However, if we run into a dead end then I can certainly point you in the right direction of some other POS systems to look at that have great integrations with WooCommerce.
You’ll find we’re experts at POS and ERP integrations, it’s something we been doing for over a decade and have amassed a great deal of knowledge and technology doing 1,300+ integrations. Here are just some of the articles that I can share with you that make us different.

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