Getting up and running with Unify is easy and takes a few minutes. Simply follow the instructions below to learn how to setup your account and get Unify up and running.
After you create your account, you should receive an email with your login and password for your account. Note: Do check your spam filter if you don't see the email in your inbox.
Once you have logged into Unify, you will begin the onboarding flow to connect your online sales channel and accounting system.
As soon as the account is created, you will be taken to a sales channel selection screen which looks like the below and select your online sales connect to connect to Unify.
You can see a guide of how to connect to your Sales channel by clicking here:Sales Channel Connection Guide.
Since Unify guides you through the process of adding your first store, if you have other online sales channels to connect, you can do that later.
Note: Once you have clicked on the connect button, Unify will ask you to enter some details to connect to your online sales channel. This process will be different for different sales channels and is clearly illustrated in the sales channel connection guide.
If you are connecting a sales channel that requires the Webgility store module for connection, please watch the video below.
Unify will then work on integrating your sales channel and creating some magic for your Homepage synopsis, Analytics & graphs!
You will then be told that your account has been created and that you need to connect to your accounting package. You can choose to do this later or with an onboarder, however if you wish to connect now, carry on reading this guide.
Once you click on connect accounting, you will be given a choice of what accounting system to connect to Unify. If you need to connect to a different accounting system read our guide on how to connect to your accounting package here:Accounting software connection guide.
