Learning management systems (LMSs) brought a revolution in the corporate learning ecosystem. Organizations and associations are keen on reaping the benefits of LMS software as their stakeholders need continuing learning to grow professionally and stay updated with the latest industry trends. While the corporate learning management system is effectively delivering training and learning requirements, a few of them lack complete integration capabilities with e-Commerce platforms like Shopify. Today, we’ll talk about what Shopify and LMS integration brings on the plate for organizations.
What is Shopify and how it helps Organizations?
Shopify is one of the leading eCommerce platforms, that allows product listing, online store building, and online selling. It enables the management of inventory, products, orders, customers, and apply discounts. With a professional storefront, Shopify POS application, and payment gateway supporting credit card transactions Shopify helps the organization sell training and online courses. Integration with an LMS imports the courses directly into the Shopify store. Learners can purchase courses on Shopify and get auto-enrolled into the courses in the LMS.
How Building a Shopify eCommerce Storefront and Integrating it with LMS Changes the Game?
LMS and Shopify integration allows organizations to sell online courses and training using the Shopify storefront. The online training and courses get displayed as products on the Shopify storefront. Custom domains, blog pages, website themes, collections, inventory management, SEO report, and event management features of Shopify boost the existing offerings of an LMS. Speak of social media, customer service, accounting, reporting, Shopify has everything plus integration capabilities with more than 70 payment gateways. Whereas an LMS offers all of these, plus specialized learning solutions that not only help to purchase courses from the LMS’s eCommerce platform but create courses using content authoring tools to enhance content and learning performance tracking, sharing, and reporting.
