Share across multiple stores

Add as many stores as you’d like to Multistore’s information-sharing nexus. A Consolidated database can act as a warehouse or simply as a central repository of data. Stores maintain their own inventory numbers, but titles, customers, gift card programs, and promotions are shared. Ecommerce with Herkimer's Timber will pull shared information and push sales to one or many sites.
