Online retailer and consumer companies face challenges around managing physical goods (such as COGS, inventory, supply chain, fulfillment), and often have complex selling channels (such as multiple platforms, differing fee and payout structures, and multiple payment processors). They also tend to have large transaction volumes. All of these things affect your books, which is why it’s important to have a bookkeeper with a strong background in your industry.
Pilot serves consumer and retail customers of all shapes and sizes, across different sectors (food and beverage, apparel, hard goods) and business models (direct-to-consumer and multi-channel retailers, manufacturers, wholesalers).
We have customers using every major e-commerce platform, including Shopify, Amazon, WooCommerce, Magento, BigCommerce, and Salesforce Commerce Cloud.
Pilot makes inventory updates in your financial statements every month based on data provided either directly by you or by the source of truth for your inventory, such as an inventory management system (e.g., TradeGecko / Quickbooks Commerce).
