The Difficulties of Managing Multiple Shopify Stores

Thanks to Shopify, it’s easier than ever for businesses to set up e-commerce websites. As a result, many companies have found success by offering their products across a network of e-commerce retail sites, allowing them to target and reach different audiences quickly.

However, manually integrating products onto multiple sites can be troublesome. After all, there is so much data around product information, stock, prices and more that needs to be constantly managed. Furthermore, without clever integration, separate sites may need to handle the processing of each order.

Due to the technological requirements of effective brand partnerships and collaborative commerce, many small businesses have been unable to take advantage of its opportunities. Alvio is changing that.

How Alvio Reduces Integrations in an eCommerce Multi-Store Setup

Thanks to the Alvio app, it’s now quick and easy for all eCommerce websites to share data and processes, making collaborative commerce accessible to all.

With Alvio, one eCommerce website can act as a central hub, broadcasting products out to other websites. All product data can be altered at this central point, and the changes will be replicated across all websites in your retail network.

Not only can the central hub make product alteration and creation quicker than ever, but all product sales on other eCommerce sites can then be sent back to the main site for processing and delivery.

Thanks to Alvio, you don’t need to manually handle lots of data across multiple eCommerce websites. There’s no need for expensive developers or complex spreadsheets.

Everything is handled quickly and easily by the app, allowing you to focus on maximising business growth.

Alvio x UK Print on Demand: A New Solution for Dropshipping on Shopify

Dropshipping is becoming an increasingly powerful way to scale retail businesses quickly. Thanks to our integration with UK Print on Demand (UKPOD), you can offer personalised products throughout your network without the need to install print on demand apps on each site.

If you want to bring dropshipping into your network, with Alvio, all you need to do is install the UK Print Shopify app in the central hub of your Shopify network. Thanks to the Alvio app, all product creation and order processing can then be handled on one website while still offering your personalised items across multiple sites in your network.

Importantly, this all happens without disturbing the consumer experience. All order updates are pushed back to the story of purchase, so the customer’s updates will be received as normal.

With Alvio, it’s easier than ever to expand your dropshipping business across multiple eCommerce websites. If you’re interested in discovering how the Alvio network could be utilised to expand your growth, why not get in contact with our team today?
