Brightpearl User Reviews

Great Inventory Management

Verified Reviewer  3rd of October 03:35

Katie Klein, --Product Specialist & Web Content Management at CEI Bookstore / Guardian of Truth Foundation
We use Bright Pearl for both in-store and online sales. Coming from the previous program we used, Bright Pearl was a huge step up in inventory tracking. You can know where each and every item is through the whole order process - from shelf to shipment. I've also been greatly impressed with the help/support team for a couple reasons. First, the replies to your problems/queries are quick (and don't make you feel like you're talking to a robot). Second, when they tell you that they are working on a certain issue, problem, or "bug" that needs to be dealt with, they mean it. This support team actually follows through and makes changes and updates frequently, always trying to improve the software. That is something that, as a customer I really appreciate.

Great Software for small to medium sized businesses

Overall a solid cloud-based accounting and inventory management tool

Overall a solid cloud-based accounting and inventory management tool. It provides a simple integration with our ecommerce store and our Amazon account. As a completely Internet based company, we love the simplicity of using a cloud service like Brightpearl. We're able to remain paperless and are able to access everything anywhere with an Internet connection. I highly suggest at least speaking with their sales staff or setting up a free trial to see if it will be a good fit for your business.

Going well after 3 years

Verified Reviewer  3rd of March 20:52

David Culhane, On-Line Marketing Manager at The James Trading Group
We have used this software now for 3 years and it has been very helpful in implementing our on-line and off line sales. I am happy with the system, very impressive for on-line retail sales, still a bit to go for the wholesale marketplace.

A gold mine for small businesses

Verified Reviewer  27th of January 16:11

A verified reviewer
Brightpearl has helped us grow in the year that we've had it. Order processing is a lot easier now with everything in one place. I have to admit at the beginning there were lots of bugs, and things not working as they should. However in the last 6 months major investment has gone into it, and its improved a lot and getting closer to the ideal platform. The support staff are friendly and will get back to you within 24 hours, however I have found that some bugs take months to fix!

Nick Oliver, Building the web business at Katie Kerr
We have been using Brightpearl since August 2012 to run our business - 3 shops and a web site. It has enormously simplified our working lives. We use it for purchasing, web order fulfillment, POS, accounting and general stock management. I would definitely recommend it.

**AVOID** Compelling offer but dubious sales tactics and limited capabilities

Verified Reviewer  1st of December, 2014 10:22

CFO ( company, 11-50 employees)
I experienced the typical software bait and switch. During the selling process, the answers was always "yes", "of course" and "definitely". However, during integration, the answers were "we need to develop custom applications at 2x the agreed upon price", "that will take longer than expected...more than month", and "we are working on the integration API but it is not yet complete." I wanted to take a chance an a start-up but go with an established provider

GetApp Analysis

Brightpearl is a multichannel retail management software that covers orders, inventory, accounting, customer data, purchasing, shipping, and reporting in a single cloud-based platform. It provides staff and management comprehensive visibility into vital business information to effectively and efficiently accomplish their tasks, accelerating profitability and growth in the process. Real-time reports include cash flow, inventory, customer purchasing behavior, profitability by channel and SKU, among others.

Instead of managing sales from every channel your business is tapping into (e.g., online shop, retail outlet, eBay, Amazon, and others), manually updating inventory information for every item you sell and purchase, hence, the possibility of human error, transferring sales and accounts payable data into your accounting system, analyzing the speed at which you sell items, and other related activities that usually require their own spreadsheets, with Brightpearl, all purchase, sales, supplier and customer information are kept in a single data depository, allowing you comprehensive at-a-glance insight into the health of your retail business through real-time reporting.

Some of Brightpearl’s core features include order management, inventory management, shipping management, online payments integration and automated real-time accounting.

Brightpearl's support system includes articles and videos, forums and webinars, email, Facebook and Twitter, phone support during business hours, and 24/7 support via helpdesk.

What is Brightpearl?

Brightpearl is a commerce acceleration platform that simplifies the retail lifecycle in one integrated web-based solution, beginning with orders all the way to customer management and growing the business. Because it’s an all-in-one retail system, it saves retailers valuable time and energy normally spent on double entries, numbers consolidation, and other procedures that need to be redone because of things here and there that slip through the cracks. This then lets them focus more on the value-adding aspects of their businesses, such as furthering their customer service initiatives.

Brightpearl takes the edge off tedious order, inventory, shipping, purchasing and accounting information management across multiple retail channels and locations by bringing relevant information together in a centralized back-office hub. With its built-in accounting system, transactions are automatically entered into accounts, and real-time reports are generated with just a few clicks. Cloud-based, it can be accessed anywhere, anytime and across multiple devices.

Brightpearl integrates with various e-commerce platforms like Shopify for more seamless data utilization and better customer experience.

Main Features

Order Management

Whenever a customer places an order, a series of events is triggered. While they can also be manually created, with Brightpearl’s ready-made integrations with e-commerce portals like Magento and Shopify, orders can be automatically downloaded. Inventory levels are subsequently decreased, not just on the channel the order is made, but all other sales channels as well, eliminating the possibility of selling the same item twice and dealing with problems later.

Brightpearl’s order management system not only ensures data accuracy and consistency, it also allows retailers to systematize their order fulfillment strategies and optimize stock levels through filters such as shipping method, order date, sales channel, and others. This way, retailers are immediately aware what products/brands are better suited for what channels, and what improvement initiatives can be rolled out to increase sales and improve customer satisfaction.

With Brightpearl's order management system, everything you need is in one place - order, customer and inventory information.

Inventory Management

Inventory replenishment with Brightpearl starts with just a few clicks. An email is sent to the supplier, and once delivered, the purchase order is marked as received and inventory levels in the sales channels are automatically increased. Because information is centralized, it’s easy to spot which entity you owe money to and how much, including the date the amount is due.

Brightpearl simplifies the usually complex inventory management processes required of a growing business. Aside from automatically increasing or decreasing inventory levels in your various sales channels, depending on whether items have been received from a supplier or sold to a customer, you are afforded the ability to generate cash flow reports and comprehensive inventory audit trails in real time.

Aside from allowing retailers to easily update inventory particulars, Brightpearl automates multichannel inventory management so you don't sell the same item twice.

Shipping Management

Order information, which includes shipping address and location, are automatically downloaded to your warehouses, empowering retailers to accurately and speedily deliver orders to customers. When an order is drop-shipped from a supplier or fulfilled via your own warehouse, tracking references are emailed to customers using pre-built email templates and transmitted back to your sales channels. Once shipped, the cost of inventory is entered into Brightpearl’s accounting system, giving you an instantaneous view of the profit amount you’ve made.

The shipping management software affords you full control over what and how you ship – partial order fulfillment versus drop-shipping, and order prioritization based on shipping method, order date or customer. For more automation and customization, Brightpearl integrates with e-commerce shipping fulfillment platforms like Shipworks, Shipstation and Metapack.

Brightpearl integrates with ShipStation, a cloud-based shipping management tool with ties with leading carriers like UPS, FedEx, USPS and Amazon FBA.

Online Payments Integration

To further simplify the customer purchasing experience, Brightpearl can be integrated with payment gateways such as PayPal and SagePay. PayPal links with Brightpearl in two ways: as a payment method and to download transactions. When payment processing with PayPal is set up, customers can opt to pay through PayPal via your website. Brightpearl automatically records all PayPal payments received online. Transaction details can then be viewed via the PayPal log and synchronized with Brightpearl using the PayPal transaction download integration feature.

SagePay, on the other hand, can be used to make online payments via the Brightpearl site (SagePay form) or through back-office payments (SagePay direct), also known as Mail Order/Telephone Order or MOTO. This means that customers can make payments over the phone, for one. For Magento users, SagePay payment setup is done in Magento.

Brightpearl readily integrates with PayPal for a seamless customer experience and faster, easier accounting.

Automated Real-Time Accounting

Brightpearl includes a full accounting system that allows users to keep track of the items they’re selling day to day, which channels are making money, which items are selling well, and such. Profits can be analyzed by channel, customer or SKU, empowering retailers to invest their money intelligently on better-performing products and channels.

The system provides in-depth and up-to-date reports that your accountant can also access to make updates and adjustments. Data can be exported as CSV, and Brightpearl’s support team provides 24/7 email support, documentations, a video library, and launch and acceleration services to help you and your staff with the training you’ll need to get started.

Brightpearl's built-in accounting system gives retailers real-time insight into the financial health of their business.


Brightpearl readily integrates with 47 apps that include eBay, Magento, Amazon, Brightpearl POS, Shopify, Bigcommerce,, UK Mail, Square, and PayPal.
