How would you like to be able to reach all of your customers with one simple, easy to use platform whether they are shopping online, on mobile devices or in person.  In order for your business to be successful and for you to take it onto the next level it is imperative that you have the ability to sell your products in as many different ways as possible whilst being able to keep it simple and cost effective.

This is exactly what Shopify was designed for as a tool to help you grow your business by simply adding different sales channels which give you as the business owner upto the minute performance reports which allow you to monitor which channels are performing better than others.

Shopify provides everything you made need to sell online anywhere and trusted by over 150,000 business owners. Shopify offers a professional online storefront, a payment solution to accept credit cards, a point of sale system to power retail sales and a card reader to process credit card transactions through a mobile phone.

– Tim Ferriss,

Read here on the 4 Hour Work Week blog the background about Shopify and it’s inception, and how it’s helped so many entrepreneurs succeed across the globe.

The partnership between the two technological giants now allows Shopify merchants to seamlessly track the impact of sales on their business financials, frees up time spent on manual data entry, and minimises the frustrations created by working with two separate systems.

Here at A&C Chartered Accountants we believe the future of accounting truly lies in cloud accounting. Not only that, we are very excited to see so many technologically advanced small to medium sized businesses starting out, making use of both our cloud accounting services, but also of so many fantastic services such as Spotify. 5 years or so ago, when such services didn’t exist, people’s life choices to go into business for themselves were restricted by cost and know how.

We’re extremely proud to be at the cutting edge of cloud apps and software integration and you can read more about our holistic integrations here: partner services and partner apps.
