    • You can customise your preferred sales summary view choosing from a wide array of formats.
    • Capture all payment transactions including gift cards, tips, tax and payment fees.
    • Easily reconcile Shopify sales and payments in MYOB.
  • Cost of Goods Sold
    • Automatically synchronise the total cost from sold items and adjust the inventory amount, generating a journal entry.
  • Inventory
    • On a daily basis, the integration fetches all products from Shopify.
    • Each Shopify Product will only be created once as an MYOB Item.
