A sub-domain is a subsection of the website that can exist as a new website without having a new domain name. Sub-domains can be used to create memorable URLs for different content areas of your site.
Similarly, Opencart POS Subdomain module allows the admin to have the POS sub-domains. This module creates memorable sub-domain URLs for each POS outlet. The separate web page address will be created for each outlet automatically as per the outlet name.
This way the admin can have POS sub-domain which can be accessed by POS users for accessing the POS panel/outlets. The admin can also add a prefix for the sub-domain URLs.
Note: This extension is an add-on to the OpenCart Point Of Sale System(POS). Before using this add-on, you must have first installed the OpenCart Point Of Sale System(POS).
- Enable or disable the module.
- Every POS outlet gets a unique URL.

Installation of the module is easy. Under the module zip, there are 3 folders admin, system, and wkpos. You just need to upload these folders to the root directory of the website.
