Find your products and create orders
Closing sales in a physical retail environment can be pretty stressful. We’ve designed the point of sale sales screen and search tools to help you find products and create orders with as little effort as possible so you can focus all your attention on your customers instead of the checkout process. FooSales can also be connected to a handheld Bluetooth or USB barcode scanner to quickly find products or variations with a matching product ID or SKU.
Accept payments quickly and easily
Process payments directly within the FooSales POS apps using Square or Stripe card readers (visit our hardware page for the current list of supported models and platforms). You can also enter a customer’s card details manually which is perfect for taking orders over the phone or if the hardware is not available in your country.
If you don’t use Square or Stripe, card payments can be manually processed using any third-party card reader of your choice and set to “Card Payment” at checkout. The payment type can also be set to “Cash”, “Direct Bank Transfer”, “Check”, “Cash on Delivery” and “Other Payment Method” or you can create your own custom payment methods in WooCommerce.
Manage WooCommerce point of sale orders from purchase to fulfillment
The FooSales point of sale orders screen is packed with critical product and customer information where you can print receipts for past orders, issue refunds, review daily totals and troubleshoot issues.
New point of sale orders are saved in real-time as standard orders within your WooCommerce store. They are identified as point of sale orders when viewed in your WooCommerce admin area and are included in your WooCommerce sales reports.
Convert in-person customers into lifetime ecommerce customers
It’s become crucial for every business to build a customer database. Fortunately, with FooSales point of sale this is built-in! Customer profiles are created on-the-fly when making a purchase. These details are immediately saved to your WooCommerce store so they can be used for customer relationship and marketing purposes.
Modify products in realtime
FooSales point of sale (POS) can be used as a basic inventory management tool for your store as you have the ability to update product details including product stock and price information directly from the product screen.
Print and email invoices
Invoices can be printed manually using most AirPrint, USB and wireless desktop printers. Automatic receipt printing is currently supported on the Star Micronics TSP100/143IIU and Epson TM-T20II thermal receipt printers. Additional thermal receipt printers are supported in the FooSales tablet apps (not available in the WooCommerce Marketplace). Find out more →
FooSales automatically emails invoices to customers using the WooCommerce new order template when an order is completed which can be disabled through a setting if required.
