Features allow fast transactions and automatic inventory syncing
WooCommerce, the leading open-source eCommerce platform, announced expanded functionality for in-person payments with its card reader. The reader works with WooCommerce Payments and the WooCommerce Mobile App.
Merchants can now quickly create an order in the WooCommerce mobile app, which can automatically sync inventory between in-person and online orders. They can also create and complete sales without needing to open a web browser.

Additionally, the reader now supports “Simple Payments,” which allows merchants to collect payments without inventory adjustment. It’s perfect for instances when merchants need to process a speedy transaction without inputting any extra details, such as at trade shows or craft fairs.
This is the first hardware product that functions seamlessly with the WooCommerce platform, and the added functionality will help make day-to-day tasks more efficient for merchants. Creating quick orders directly in the mobile app and using the card reader to take payment will save many hours of manually updating inventory.
In addition, these features can scale with the business – multiple readers can be used by various staff and at different locations. It is currently available to Woo merchants in the United States and will be available in Canada later in June.
