BatchLine POS offers two options for transactional websites: a web exporter and a plugin. The exporter supplies data and images for booksellers who are tech-savvy or have someone to provide technical support for their websites. The annual cost for the data is £240 p.a. + VAT (without VAT in Eire).

1) The web exporter produces data and images as XML and CSV files for display on your website. To access this service, you must be a current subscriber to BatchLine POS and be able to manipulate the data yourself.

What does it NOT do?
* It does not work automatically, so you or your own IT support must integrate this data into an existing Shopify, Wix or bespoke website.
* It does not automatically update the website when you have sold an item.
* This option does not provide you with technical support.

2) The second option is the BatchLine BCS Plugin + Web Exporter, which operates with a fully up-to-date, functional WooCommerce website but only if you are already subscribing to the BatchLine web exporter service. The cost is normally £120 p.a. + VAT but is included F.O.C. with the web exporter package until 31st December 2021. Thereafter it will be a chargeable service.

What does it do?
* It provides full integration with BatchLine POS.
* It will update your stock position as you add stock or make a sale – providing that you set this option.
* It will automatically pull your stock along with the images and biblio into your transactional website.

What does it not do?
* If your website is not up to date or requires remedial work and you do not have a web person who can help, our recommended provider Broadband Cloud Solutions BCS can do the necessary work for a one-off fee starting at £200, depending on what is required.

A new BCS website
BCS can also offer an affordable package for a new transactional WordPress website with WooCommerce and the BatchLine BCS plugin. This includes full development of a customised website, monthly maintenance and hosting, plus your own .co.uk or .com domain. Ongoing charges of £100 + VAT per month for a minimum of two years apply. This contract will be directly with BCS, . In addition, you will require the BatchLine POS web exporter at £240 p.a.+ VAT which will be charged by Batch.
