POS for Webshops is released!
« on: September 02, 2013, 22:15:47 pm »
We are successfully using a POS system for Virtuemart for several years now. After a lot of optimizing we think this component is ready for public use.

Some of our "Point of Sale" features.
  • Every sale in the POS is put directly into Virtuemart as an order.
  • After every sale the stock is automaticly adjusted in Virtuemart
  • Possibility to use the POS “offline” as well as “online”
  • Barcodes are easily added in Virtuemart by adding a custom field and are recognised in the POS. Also the possibility to add barcodes in the POS.
  • The POS can be installed locally on your laptop/pc/mac (local Joomla installation), this way it also can be used without an internet connection. ( easy to use on a fairs ) When internet is available the POS synchronises the orders with Virtuemart and the stock is up-to-date.
  • Receipt is easy to adjust and ready for several receipt printers.
  • When you don’t have a receipt printer, you can use your regular printer to print an invoice.
  • Possibility to control your cash drawer
  • Touchscreen ready
  • Easily create shortbuttons in the main screen with multiple tabs.
  • Sales reports – Balance register
  • Automatically apply webshop discounts to product prices
  • Assign order to customer and invoicing
  • Individual cashier logins
  • Web-based, it works on every computer.

A few screenshots from the POS.



You can put orders on hold and open them later.



Possibility to edit products in the POS



If the product doesn't have a barcode or the scanner can't read the barcode, you can search for the product.



Induvidual cashier logins




Buy once use forever!
We are working on a demo site and hope we can launch the demo on our website soon. www.posforwebshops.com

The demo of the POS is available on our website.
You can check out the POS system as well as the VM backend. It is possible to make changes and add products or shortcut buttons in the POS system.
If you already have a barcode scanner you can download a pdf with the main barcodes and use these to add products.
If you don't have a barcode scanner you can add products with the shortcut buttons or you can use the search field.

The database is reset every hour,  on the main demo page you can see when the next reset is.

We are looking forward to your feedback.

Hi MekkE,

Thanks for the compliments!

We are convinced of our products, so we have a money back guarantee. Take our POS for a 30 day test drive! If you are not satisfied with our POS system, return it within 30 days and we will give you a full refund!

We believe it’s better to have a product that is made for webshops then having a product that is adjusted to work with webshops.
A few years ago we ran into the problem of combining our online store and offline sales. So we tried to find a solution. But all of the software available where made for retail stores without a webshop. It could be adjusted to communicate with the webshop, but always will have it flaws.
That’s why we decided to develop a new Point of Sale system. The software should be easy to use and has to work on every computer/laptop.

Before we started with building this POS we investigated the solutions that are available on the market:
We had to pay for the software (about 2-3 times our selling price) and (hire) a programmer/virtuemart specialist to make the connection to our webshop ( for several days ) in addition we also had to pay a monthly subscription. All of this for a product that isn't made to work with webshops.

Our POS is made for webshops and is setup within 15 minutes. No subscription needed, once purchased you can use it forever!

Hi testhuis,

Thank you, we've put a lot of time and thoughts in creating a nice and easy to use interface.

The shotcut buttons can be connected to a VM product but you also can create custom shortcut groups and custom shortcut buttons. Easy to use if you are frequently selling a product without a barcode or if a product isn't in the VM store.
We are busy with creating different video's to explain the different POS functions.
You can find a video for creating shortcut buttons on our youtube channel. http://www.youtube.com/posforwebshops

Hi hhtmp88

Thank you for your question, but we don't support the Chinese language.
The POS is build on php so it should work on any server.

Two questions:
1. When will POS for Webshops support Virtuemart v3.0.2?
2. Is it support multi-warehouse? e.g. one small stock on shop#1, one small stock on shop#2, and one large stock in warehouse for the case of a two-shops company
