It’s easy to manage Bembien’s inventory with Squarespace.
As a business owner operating on her own, Yi-Mei relies on Squarespace’s easy-to-use inventory management system to keep track of her stock levels. She uses the Commerce app to manage shipments, fulfill orders, and receive stock level alerts on her mobile device.
“When you go and do something yourself, you’re truly understanding if you have the skills to make it happen. Bembien came at a time when I needed to do that for myself.”
