The knitting supply industry supplies beginner and advanced knitters (also known as yarnies) with all sorts of essentials like scissors, stitch markers, knitting needles, yarn, books and accessories. Knitting supply stores often provide lessons and group events so that customers can improve and socialize in the process. Knitting supply shops are similar to other department stores but since they specialize, they have many more knitting related products to choose from. Stores are typically owned and run by managers and staff with extensive golfing knowledge. Many knitting supply shops operate within large hobby chains like Michael’s and The Hobby Lobby but family owned and operated single location and multi-location knitting supply shops continue to thrive in communities all over the world.
Operating a knitting supply shop requires a central location within a community. Some stores offer online purchasing and delivery as an additional convenience. Other knitting shops operate exclusively online. These exclusively web-based knitting stores often specialize in unique items that are difficult to access as demand is limited. Web based ordering is common as an offering for local pickup at an in-town location. Knitting shops are typically staffed with managers, stock laborers, knowledgeable sales associates and cashiers. These enterprises often run using on premise software and software-as-a-service (SaaS) technology. Such applications offer inventory records, employee management, point of sale, online ordering, billing, shipping, invoicing and knitting supply payments.
Payment Integrator works with knitting supply shops to integrate payment processing with new and existing on premise and SaaS based point of sale systems. Our payment gateway handles credit card and debit card payments as well as e-wallet transactions like Apple Pay and Google Pay. We can communicate with knitting supply accounting modules through integrated APIs and a hosted payment page (HPP) solution that is secure and PCI Compliant. Our payment integrations come equipped with a variety of P2PE secure countertop credit card processing terminals. Advanced tokenization makes it possible to create customer profiles to setup scheduled payments, knitting supply payment plans and to manage invoicing for regular yarnie customers.
