Hi 👋 We're glad you've decided to give Thrive a try.

Here are a few tips to help you get started using our service:

1. Take our quick course on Getting Started

  • Learn the ropes with this Getting Started course.

    • Contains six videos, pro tips, and questions to test your knowledge.

  • Great for beginners, but also for seasoned pros to learn the ins and outs of Thrive.

    Head there now and get going:

2. Stop using your point of sale provider's inventory app

  • All inventory changes should now be done exclusively in Thrive.

  • Changes made in Thrive will automatically be reflected in your point of sale.

  • Updating quantities in your provider's (Clover, Square, etc.) system can lead to inventory discrepancies. Learn more

3. Nothing changes in the sales process

  • Ringing up customers is exactly the same as it was before.

  • Sales at the point of sale are automatically reported back to Thrive to deduct quantities and put together reports.

4. Enjoy your full-feature 30-day free trial

  • The average merchant ends up saving 6+ payroll hours per week using Thrive.

  • Thrive is a monthly (or yearly) subscription.

  • No contracts. No commitments. No kidding!

5. We're here to help

  • Live Customer Support is available from 9 a.m. to 8 p.m. Eastern (6 a.m. to 5 p.m. Pacific) Monday through Friday.

  • Support is available in English and Español. Other languages are welcome to write in, but we will rely on Google Translate™ for correspondence.

  • We answer every question you send, but it may be quicker to look it up in our 24-Hour Help Section at (you're there now).

  • Schedule a Personal Training Session with a Thrive expert if you need personalized one-on-one training. Learn more
