The Inventory Connector app automatically connects your POS to NearSt. Download the app, sign in with your MyShop login details, and the rest happens automatically in the background.
What are the system requirements?
The Inventory Connector app officially supports only Windows 7 and up, but might work with older Windows versions as well. It requires .NET framework 4.5 or newer to be installed. You will probably already have this installed If you get an error during the installation process, you can install it manually by downloading it from the Microsoft website.
Does this app change my inventory or POS system?
No, the Inventory Connector is only allowed reads stock data from your POS. It will never write any data to your POS or change any of your inventory or sales data.
How do I sign in to the Inventory Connector?
Very much in the same way as you sign into your MyShop dashboard. You simply enter your shop's email address, and then have to finish the sign-in by clicking the link in the email you receive from us. Detailed instructions can be found here.
How do I know if it is working?
If NearSt is active, it displays an icon in the Tray. This is the area at the bottom right of your screen. You might need to click the arrow to expand it to see all the icons of the running applications. If something goes wrong, NearSt will display a pop-up window.
Am I using the latest version of the app?
The app updates automatically in the background, so there's no need to check if you have the latest version - you always do!
What should I do if the Inventory Connector doesn't recognize my POS?
Every computer is configured slightly differently, so although we do our best to always automatically detect the POS software installed on yours, we might not always succeed. Send us a message via email@example.com and we'll look into it together with you.
