At this moment, CS Cart lacks a decent POS solution for the Brick stores. There are Some overly expensive options that have someway of integrating with CS Cart and Webkul has a CS Cart Pos which is way too limited and buggy.

Not sure if there’s any interest for it, but what if all of is that are seeking for a POS solution combine forces on this one.

Describe our individual needs, design UX and then find any of the developers to build it to our standards and wishes, and equally devide the price for creating this addon.

Curious about your thoughts

For more then 15 months i’m teling you that the POS addon overwrites index.tpl, the default hook 'index: head_scripts' is missing. So a number of addons won’t work because of this and after almost every addon update we have to manually fix this. Also, basic features like *return products, *discount per product line, *show categories instead of all products
Are not integrated. This just renders the Pos almost useless. Makes it just a 199,- addon with flaws which is a shame because Some things are actually good.

But if other community members are interested we can use your POS as a base. However, issues need to be solved permenantly.

Hello, 

 

As you have already purchased our POS add-on and also you have suggested us few features. I would like to inform you that we will definitely add the discussed features in our add-on in the future.

Also, it is difficult to implement all features in one go, however, we have developed our product-development road-map with all the exciting features and we will be implementing those features in future updates. 

Once everything will be implemented, we will upload the final add-on on our store and you will be able to download from the store directly. There will not be any need to pay the extra payment for that. 

 

Thanks!

Webkul Team.

Could you share the roadmap? Also, any ideas about the issue with the index? You guys want me to extend support to fix it, which is a bit silly...

Hello,

May I ask you. What limitations does Webkul addon has?

 

Thx a lot

1) The view only supports products. No categories possible
2) There is NO discount per product possible. Only a total or percentage. If there's a 10% discount on a 200,- product, it's easy ofcourse. But a 15% discount on a 170,95 product and another product with a different store discount... impossible without a calculator
3) No option of returning a product, or exchange a product.

4) The icons for trash/hold cart and text field for search are too small for use on a tablet. Which can be handy when walking trough a store.

5) The hold cart is great, however it should be possible to put on a name. In one of our stores multiple people are working with multiple clients who store orders all the time. You can view a cart-id, but not "john's cart"  

6) No easy way of changing the Receipt. As far as i know there is no logo, no VAT and no custom fields, Social media links for example.

 

 

There are some good things aswell

1) Other buttons are fine and intuitive.

2) The offline function is really handy and good

3) Easy to apply coupons

4) Easy to create a customer

5) As long as you have a support license, Webkul's support is very good.

 

If none of these limitations concern you, it's a very good, fast, stable and easy to use POS.
But imo. It needs updates.

Thank you so much for this details. Appreciate!
Regarding discount, even if we apply the discount already in our website. it will not take it.

Really tax doesn't appear on the receipt.

 

Thank you so much

Are you using the POS? What do you mean with “ Regarding discount, even if we apply the discount already in our website. it will not take it.”

If products in the system are on discount, it will use the discounted price. But in our case, customers love to bargain. So we add an additional discount. And in December we have a big Christmas tree with cards in it. A customer can take a card, they can open it and it has a Suprise discount on the most expensive product. It’s not the worst thing that function is missing, but it would be so much easier if it was there.

Yeah not sure. We stopped using it, because of the missing functions. Tried the demo on Webkul, but that is not showing tax either. Might be a setting.

Only advice is, try the demo, and try it again until you know all the pro’s and con’s
