    Complete Guide To Odoo POS Product Variants

    Updated 20 August 2021


    Whether you have a restaurant or an offline store, the speed of your service always attracts your customers. If you are not fast enough in attending to your customers & receiving their orders, they perceive you are less active and attentive towards them. Which eventually results in losing customer retention.

    Similarly, in the Odoo POS by default, only product variants are shown instead of product templates in the product list. Thus, the cashier is not aware of which product variant is associated with which product template. Which sometimes leads to inefficiency at your store.

    Therefore, to improve your performance at POS, we have come up with the Odoo POS Product Variants module. The module facilitates you to show the product templates instead of product variants. When you will click on any product template on POS, a popup will appear showing all the variants associated with that product template. If a template doesn’t have any variants associated, then you can directly make the order.
