NCR Silver Commerce, makes it simple and affordable for NCR Silver users to launch, manage and maintain a feature-rich e-commerce site.

There is absolutely no third party needed because it’s built on the existing NCR Silver platform — meaning it’s fully integrated. If you’ve already imported inventory, it will automatically transfer into the e-commerce platform.

…or any other social channel!
An e-commerce website gives you the ability to reach more customers wherever they already are, including on Instagram, Twitter and Pinterest. “Buy now” buttons can link directly to specific items on your website and give followers an easy and instant option to purchase – right from their smartphone, tablet or computer.
Using separate tools for POS, business intelligence and online ordering creates additional complexity. Combining the Silver POS with Silver Commerce creates a single solution that enables you to see in-store and online sales in the same reports.
Wishbone’s Pet Boutique uses it to accommodate customers 24/7, which comes in handy when their location is closed for a holiday or out out-of-town customers want to restock.
“The e-commerce aspect is very helpful, along with the back office that allows me to get insight into inventory levels,” says owner Susan Murphy.
As always, all data is stored in the cloud for easy access to reports and when you’re ready to get started, we’ll set everything up for you. Silver Commerce users get automated merchant commerce onboarding and ongoing training — at no extra charge.
