First of all, we want to welcome you to Sqquid and thank you for choosing us. In this article, we'll do our best to explain the absolutely first steps that you'll need in order to start taking advantage of our platform and as you continue reading the next articles, you'll be discovering all of the awesome features that Sqquid has for you (A LOT of cool features), to be honest.
Some of them:
- Real-Time Inventory
- Order flow automation
- Order Fulfillment
But, no worries we'll get there, for now...let's cut to the chase!
1. Setting Up your POS system!
The first thing you'll need to do in order to start using Sqquid is setting up your primary POS channel (i.e: Runit). You can do this, by accessing our "channels" section (1), and once you are there, you'll be able to select the POS system in the list (2) by clicking the "+ Add" button.
Depending on your POS provider, there are some fields you'll need to fill, once you're done you can click on the submit button, down to the left of the form page (3).
2. Initial configuration for your POS channel!
You can start configuring the setting for your POS channel right after you click "submit" in the previous step. You'll do this by accessing to our "channels" section (1) if you aren't there already and then, click in the "edit" option for the channel you need to configure (2), listed in the 'Active Channels' container.
Once there, you will find several options that are specific to your POS provider and we will cover each of the different channel providers our platform supports in upcoming articles. But in a brief explanation, we can say that through these options you will be able to configure everything from activating/deactivating the channel, to some more advanced aspects such as order flow automation.
Note: Make sure to actually activate your channel in this section, you can do this by activating it through our "Enabled?" toggle (3) inside the Channel options (2) which you can access follow the steps described in the previous paragraph.
3. Adding your Ecommerce Store
You'll be able to do this in a very similar way to the one used to add a POS channel. Access our "channels" section (1), and once you are there, you'll be able to select the eCommerce system in the eCommerce grid (2) by clicking the "+ Add" button.
Once you click the "+ Add" button you'll have to fill in related to your eCommerce store. We'll be covering each one of the eCommerce channel connections in specific articles if you have doubts regarding a specific eCommerce channel.
