Shopify Integration Available
For those of you waiting for the Shopify integration feature, it’s in the latest release available for download! Contact Sales for information on how to utilize this new feature so you can begin setting up your Shopify webstore.
Here are some of our observations to help guide you in setting up a Shopify webstore. While there are many themes available for a premium with Shopify, there a few that stand out among the currently provided free options. Above is pictured the Brooklyn theme. This one is particularly notable for the way it clearly displays the choice between new and used. This is different than the other free themes that offer the option, which utilize a drop down box as seen below.
Above is another free option, the Venture theme. In our opinion, it gives a distinct and stark look to the store and is also suitable to a large store with both new and used.
The final screenshot above, represents a minimal design. This design is suitable to stores using the Simple Sync option, as it will not allow a user to select between variations. The Simple Sync option, in case you are not familiar, will only sync the new version of a product. So it is not applicable to stores that sell both new and used copies. If you fall into this category, this theme be offer a simple, clean design for you.
Many of the free themes offered are only subtly different from those above; you can experiment with them, but we recommend against in particular Boundless, which will not resize images, and Express, which does not allow for the customer to search. Additionally, the layouts of Narrative and Simple are more designed for stores with a relatively small number of items, in the hundreds rather than thousands or tens of thousands.
For themes with WooCommerce, there are too many for us to recommend particular ones; look around for ones that you like among the thousands of free ones.
Customer Facing Webapp in Development
We have begun development of our Customer Facing Webapp. We are very excited about this new offering and wanted to bring our customers up to speed on the development. The project, nicknamed ThunderPOS Loyalty, will allow you to give your customers website accounts with access to their information. Right now, the plan is to give ability to check gift card balances, see past special orders with status, check on account balances and rewards points, and get a rough quote on a trade in. You will be able to configure the access to decide which information your customers can see. You will also be able to share store information such as advertising and upcoming promotions. Importantly, you will be able to set up the feature with a few clicks right from your ThunderPOS BackOffice website. It won’t require any web development on your part!  
We welcome your feedback as we go through this development. Development on this is still in early stages. If you have particular features or information you think would be valuable to share with customers through such an application, please let us know.  

If you are focused on building customer loyalty, we think this will become a valuable tool for you.
