    I have only been using Shopventory for a few months but have found it to be very good. It’s pretty straight forward and easy to use and setup. At $29 a month for the Starter Plan, I found this to be a reasonable price. Well you can throw that out the window. I received notification that all plans are increasing in price. The Starter plan is going up to $49 a month. That’s nearly a 70% increase. That’s outrageous.I am a small seller and given all of the other fees, software, and rising cost of goods, I can’t continue to use Shopventory at its new price point. It’s a shame because I do like the software. I’ve been looking at other alternatives and they are even more expensive than Shopventory so I’m not sure where I will turn.

    Thank you for your review which is fairly recent. I wanted to add a few things that were notable. First, I am using Shopventory for the free trial for Shopify which according to their documentation is fairly new. I saw that they announced it in Nov. 2017. It felt like I was walking in before the path was worn. It was not what I wanted. I want a well seasoned product that I can afford.I like the program over all and it did a stunning job of accumulating all my products, bundles and supplies into a cohesive and impressive report for the accountant. I now know where a bunch of my money got reinvested.I would say that the product has to do more than make a pretty report. One thing that is troubling is how difficult it is to edit the quantities. I have to open an item and hunt through the variants until I find it and some of my collections of herbs and such are listed a few pages deep and there is no search engine on variants.another annoyance is that the purchase orders can’t be edited once they are created. That means the items I buy have to stay open for a long time until I get the billing and the freight amounts. This is cumbersome because if I make a mistake its changes my pricing averages. too much at stake for no editing function. all in all, I feel like I shouldn’t be entering into my account although I am torn. I know there is some other solution for me. I just can’t find it so maybe this will have to do and just the purchase orders, it will stay open until the end. I tried to go back to the resident program which I often prefer, but the ability to edit that was worse and much less useful. I have bundles, and I need to know how much of everything I have so I can keep production going.I like the price of Shopventory as compared to stitch labs for example. I am starting to think that my new automation is bigger than my house payment. Thanks for the review and be sure to check out how Shopventory works with Shopify and it’s POS>:)Mimi

      I am reviewing Inventory Software in consideration for purchase. I have been seriously pushing Shopventory. Yours is the first review I could find. What is bothering me is that I cannot find their business name registered or a brick and mortar address. Can you help me out here?

      Nancy,
      I performed a quick google search using the phrase “Shopventory address” and came up with two locations. If not having a physical office is a deal breaker for you, I’d suggest reaching out to them and asking them directly. Good luck!

        Hi, Nancy!

        To add to what Jessica has said, my impression in doing my review of Shopventory is that is a small company, but absolutely legitimate. I spoke with their customer support reps and worked my way through the software. I’ve also seen some chatter about it on Square’s seller community, so I know Square merchants are using the service.

        I was able to find a business listing for Shopventory in Colorado, where the CEO, Dave Carlson, resides. You can look it up for yourself here: https://www.sos.state.co.us/biz/BusinessEntityCriteriaExt.do

        You can also see his LinkedIn here: https://www.linkedin.com/in/davegcarlson/

        Hope this helps!
