Lightspeed Takes on Shopify with Launch of Ecommerce Platform

Montreal’s Lightspeed POS says that its new service, eCom, is now available to online businesses in North America.

Similar to Ottawa’s Shopify, the new ecommerce platform gives users the tools and analytics they need to run their online business.

Lightspeed eCom will seamlessly integrate with cloud-based POS solution, Lightspeed Retail. Merchants now have access to a one-stop-shop for all their retail management needs.

“Retailers want the freedom to sell across all channels, whether in-store, online or mobile,” said JP Chauvet, chief revenue officer at Lightspeed. “With this new platform and integration, we’re giving retailers a way to easily manage their online and in-store business, offer customers a seamless shopping experience, and sell smarter.”

Lightspeed eCom features include SEO optimization, customizable templates, an app marketplace, and analytics reports.
