What is the most efficient way to integrate physical retail inventory into an e-commerce platform?

Which are the most popular inventory management tools for clothing retailers that are being used in the USA? I am specifically interested in the shoes and clothing category. I am researching how physical retailers can integrate their inventories on e-commerce platforms.


I have experience working at Target where we had thousands of different SKUs for the shoes and clothing department, and also handled online orders.

In my experience the best platform for integrating physical retail inventory into an e-commerce platform is using Stitch Labs. Once you set up your initial account, Stitch brings all of your inventory together by integrating with your shopping carts, marketplaces, POS, payment processors and accounting solutions.

This means that when you sell an item of clothing in a physical retail shop or any online platform including Amazon, Amazon FBA, Etsy, eBay, Shopify, etc. your master list of inventory is adjusted accordingly. They also integrate with Xero to push orders through and make accounting a breeze.

If you would like to discuss inventory control or multi-channel e-commerce further, please reach out.

My immediate answer to anything related to inventory and physical-goods is: The API is clean and there are a lot integrations for them. Can answer better if there is a more specific information around what system the inventory is currently in?
