I'm looking for a solution that will present products on a shopping cart, provide a POS interface, push the items to TradeMe, Wheedle, LST, etc.

Does such a thing exist?

What I'm not looking for:

* Zero - no thanks, not for this requirement.
* MYOB - as above. 
* Hosted solutions - I'm not wanting things that are tied to a managed solution.

What is required:

* Wordpress integration unless the solution just ticks enough of the other boxes.

TIA.

There is nothing right now and would be a serious development effort to make one if possible.

You could look at WooCommerce for WordPress. There are quite a few modules already made for it, but some of this you would probably have to get developed (like TradeMe integration etc). It has its own Rest-API now so it should be possible to make a sturdy solution based around WooCommerce.

There are at least a couple of companies that do WooCommerce and POS integration:
http://www.polarpos.com/
With: http://www.polarpos.com/pos-system-features/benefits-of-ecommerce-and-pos-software/pos-software-and-woocommerce/

http://61extensions.com/shop/quickbooks-pos-integration-woocommerce/ - that works with Quickbooks POS

WooCommerce: 
http://www.woothemes.com/woocommerce/

WooCommerce extentions:

In the extensions you will find payment gateways, shipping integration, ERM integration etc.

Thanks guys for the feed back.

There has been much talk about a competitor to TradeMe on these and other lists.  It seems to me that these competitors need to look at working together to invest in some solutions like I've outlined above for the retail community.

Working with one local retailer, they list on Trademe by default and that's it.  I suspect they'd invest farther a field if they could find a sensible software solution, which is why I was asking.
