Why Should You Integrate Your POS With Where's Weed

Published on 8/30/22

Legal cannabis has boomed over the past few years, and there are very few signs of it slowing down. From what was primarily an illicit, black market product is now one of the most profitable industries. MJBiz Daily predicts that cannabis sales will reach $33 billion by the end of 2022 and up to $56 billion by 2026. 

As a cannabis business, bringing new customers through the door can be difficult. While customers consider a few factors when choosing a dispensary, a few more things can help them select your dispensary over your competitors. 

Of course, you can always create a strong brand and keep a social media presence to get new customers inside the door. However, one of the best ways to attract new customers is by integrating your point-of-sale (POS) system with Where's Weed!

Understanding Different Types of Integration

How you integrate your POS determines how much time you want to spend updating your Where's Weed business account. 

  • Full integration automatically adds new items to your store's menu on Where's Weed, updates pricing and quantities, and provides a real-time feed directly from your POS system. Once you connect, you're one and done! No need to spend extra time updating your business inventory in your Where's Weed account. 
  • Inventory-only updates feed your current inventory data into Where's Weed once uploaded into your store's point-of-sale. 
  • With manual updates, you must make updates and add new items manually. 

Dispensaries and delivery services that have fully integrated their POS systems with Where's Weed have seen a significant increase in online orders, SEO authority and brand awareness for their products.
