In most cases, our clients use Epos Now as the master for stock as it has a pretty robust inventory management system built in.
There are however some use cases where it is beneficial to use WooCommerce as the master. First, let’s define what we mean by ‘master’.
The master is the platform on which all inventory is managed, and to which all orders will be synced
One of the most popular use cases where it is useful to have WooCommerce as the master is when Epos Now is not being used to manage the inventory, it is simply another sales channel.
Stock levels controlled by Woo
When a stock update needs to be made, it can be made on Woo and we then sync this over to EposNow.
Orders sync from EposNow into Woo
Whenever an order is made on EposNow, we sync this to WooCommerce so that all sales data is in Woo and stock levels are also updated.
Multi-Channel platform compatibility
Some of our clients use multi-channel platforms such as Linnworks/Veeqo/Channel Grabber/Trade Gecko/Emerge to manage their orders and inventory from one place.
These platforms sync pick up the orders from WooCommerce and orders can then be processed on their platform directly. We sync the orders from EposNow into Woo, so this effectively makes EposNow orders available on these platforms.
Whenever a stock level changes, they sync this directly onto Woo, and we then sync this into EposNow.

"After around 9 months of total frustration with a previous Epos to WooCommerce integration company, Slynk was a breath of fresh air. Everything transposed seamlessly and Gurdeep was on hand within minutes and nothing was too much trouble. Since moving over to Slynk and a server change we are now operating at full speed and moving forward exponentially. Fantastic service that is worth every penny of what we are paying."
