Nobody wants returns, but when you do have to create purchase credits, you want them to be quick and easy - that's why this month you have two brand new improvements to help you with exactly that. PLUS our point of sale app Brightpearl POS has no less than six new features! PayPal Here and iOS upgrades, integrations with USAePAY, BOPIS, advanced fulfilment, AND more warehouse intel in the app. Phew!
