CommentSold, the live video commerce solution enabling retail businesses to unlock sales growth through live selling, announced the launch of its point of sale (POS) system built on Stripe, a financial infrastructure platform for businesses.
This addition to CommentSold’s suite of solutions for retailers “gives them access to a unified solution for in-person and online purchasing, inventory management, and seamless shopper experiences.”
Stripe Terminal is “an in-person payments solution for modern businesses that will power CommentSold’s POS system and help online merchants augment their live selling revenue.” Retailers use the CommentSold platform “to simplify and automate retail operations, and marry their in-person and online presence through interactive shopping experiences.”
Brandon Kruse, CEO of CommentSold, said:
“Live selling is the future of retail, and consumer demand for it is growing rapidly. As retailers manage both online and in-person sales, it is increasingly important to get omnichannel inventory and payment handling right. We are thrilled to launch a point of sale system that ties directly into a shop’s e-commerce platform. Our point of sale offering brings much-needed simplicity to our merchants as in-person sales can now update online inventory in real-time.”
Roshan Sadanani, Product Manager at Stripe, remarked:
“For many customers, there’s nothing better than having that special touch that comes with an in-person purchase. Our collaboration with CommentSold unifies online payments and point-of-sale for businesses, helping them grow revenue across live streams, live sales, and everything in between.”
CommentSold’s digital platform already “simplifies inventory and order management, payments, invoicing, labeling, packaging, and fulfillment processing for business owners and enables live selling on social media, mobile apps, and websites.”
With the addition of its POS system, CommentSold retailers will now be able “to save time and labor with a fully integrated platform, simplify fulfillment with a single inventory management system for in-store and online purchases and reduce POS costs with free initial setup and terminal fees.”
CommentSold’s POS system was “launched via a pilot program for select CommentSold customers in September 2021.”
Early adopters deemed it “a significant asset to their business operations, giving them easy access to critical data while creating a cohesive sales experience for online and in-person shopping.”
