    Hi, I looking for a solution for to sale offline on phisical shop, using prestashop.
    I don’t understand how can this module work offline, if it is not a PC software.
    My shop have 3000 items, for example if I sell for 3 hours offline and I make 50 sale of 10 products/sale. How can this module work, if all product data are online on hosting database, and I’m offline? How can this module get data of 3000 product? Later it can sync offline order, but how can it get product data when offline?

    If client make his order online from site, will be this order show (synchronizing) in POS too or i should go to admin panel in web-site to see it?

    and the next question, we have sushi-bar with delivery option our orders, in your module there is no information in invoice about address delivery and the invoice can be created when the order is finished, but in our case first we will make delivery and then receive cash from client, so the question is it possible to make order from POS for delivery and close it when we delivered it and receive cash or other method of peyments. and the other order if the client making his order in bar (this method is working in your module now)

      Hello Nick,

      Greetings from Webkul!

      If the order is created online from site or from the POS, you’ll have to go to the orders tab in admin panel to view the order.

      Regarding your second question, our module currently have only two payment methods available i.e, Card and Cash. If you want any other payment method, then we would request you to please raise a ticket at http://support.webkul.com/ so we can discuss the possibility of customising it for you.

      Have a good day!

    Hi Ashish.

    Great job, congratulations.
    I would need for some products to be able to take their weight from a scale to give a value as a function of this in the POS, to recalculate its price.

    Could you contemplate this functionality soon?

    I think it would also increase the potential of this great development that you have made.
    Finally , thank you again and I look forward to your answer.

    Does it support barcode, so that pos can do the billing using barcode in offline mode and then order get sync.
    • prerna
      Hi Manoj,

      Greetings from Webkul!

      With POS, you can add the products to cart by scanning the products using the barcode in an offline mode too and when the internet connection gets established, all the orders which are processed offline will be synchronised to online orders.

      In case of further queries related to the module, please raise a ticket at our support ticket system- https://webkul.com/ticket/ or you can mail us at support@webkul.com

    • prerna
      Hi, 

      Greetings from Webkul!

      In the module, admin can assign products to the different outlets. If a customer buys a product from a particular outlet then the product quantity of that outlet will be updated and so is the quantity of the online store. 

      If you have any query then you can raise a ticket at our support ticket system- https://webkul.com/ticket/ or you can mail us at support@webkul.com

      Thanks and regards,

    Can you have products that are only in the POS and not online? Example..
    We sell floor items that we do not sell online.. We would want to add these items and use the POS for the sale but we would not want them listed for sale on our e-commerce site?
    • prerna

  • Juan Carlos Rodriguez
    Great module, but I have one question:
    ¿The modification of the Orders (price, quantity,..) is incliuded with the module? On the demo works, but I dont know if is included or I need a separate module.
    Thanks!!
    • prerna
      Hello,

      As of now with the module, you cannot modify the order from the POS end. However, once the order is created you can update the quantity of the product from the Orders tab in the backoffice.

      If you want that you can modify the order (at POS end) after the order is placed, then, we will have to customise it for you.

      Please raise a ticket at http://support.webkul.com/ so we can discuss the possibility of customising it for you.

      Thanks and regards,
      Prerna Arora
