HOW DOES IT WORK?
Automate your business back end
When DEAR is connected to your Vend POS, it automatically imports and matches your product listings, orders and customers, significantly reducing the time spent on double data entry.
Central order management/fulfilment
Vend orders can be fulfilled in DEAR using Pick, Pack and Ship with inventory automatically deducted and quantities updated in your Vend store (s). Based on the order, a customer invoice is also created and then subsequently imported to your accounting application.
Choose whether to import orders individually or consolidate orders for the day if necessary to reduce the number of transactions syncing to your accounting application.
Tax and Payment method mapping DEAR allows exact mapping between the tax rules and payment terms between Vend and your accounting app ensuring that taxation as well as payment information is attributed to the correct accounts every time. This helps reduce time spent on reconciliation of payments once these are received in your bank account.
Catalog Management Bulk list or update your products directly from DEAR or import your entire catalog from your Vend store. Both simple products and variants are supported. As multiple Vend stores can be connected at once, you able to maintain a master of inventory in DEAR and choose what products are listed in the various stores with each having a separate catalog.

Stock Level Updates

Your customer list will be loaded from Vend in real time too. It will be sent to your accounting software – no double data entry is required. If you use Vend POS you can consolidate all daily sales into one sale order. Please see our Development Roadmap for our upcoming user requested features.
