How can I find a service provider that can help me develop and host an e-commerce website while fully integrating with a POS system at my store?

I will be opening a small retail store and e-commerce site. I am looking for a provider who can help me design and host the website and has a solution that integrates inventory management, gift receipts and gift cards at POS. I found some great web design and hosting companies, but they fall short on having all the POS capabilities and inventory integration I am loooking for.

Well, it certainly looks like you've done your homework and you know what you need. You've gone the route of finding great web design companies, but they were short on the POS end.

I would try attacking this problem from the other end by reaching out to POS companies and getting them to refer you to two to three web-design companies that work well with them and their products.

Sometimes you have to turn a problem completely around to solve it.

Hope this helps,
Lena
