WooCommerce is the most popular WordPress ecommerce plugin and 2nd most popular platform used by retailers worldwide*. Designed for the start-up or SME, WooCommerce is the ideal match for Brightpearl’s ERP which has been developed to accelerate growth for the smaller retailer.
At Mothercloud we could see the opportunities that Brightpearl offered retailers but felt that this should be shared with users on WooCommerce.
Designed for the small to medium enterprise, WooCommerce is a free plug-in for WordPress which enables smaller retailers to build a professional ecommerce store. Feature rich and integrated seamlessly into a self-hosted WordPress site, WooCommerce offers a host of plugins and themes to enable retailers to build a complete store.
Brightpearl offers built-in integrations with Magento, Bigcommerce, ekmPowershop and Shopify but no internal integration for WooCommerce.
We identified that there was a need for a WooCommerce integration with Brightpearl that enabled start-ups and smaller retailers to expand their retail into a multi-channel business. Our aim was to extend the functionality of WooCommerce by enabling users to synchronise their online retail with Brightpearl. Once set up this would allow them to manage inventory, prices, customers and orders via Brightpearl and their website as one system.
