Manage an eShop AND a small real Shop ?
« on: July 11, 2019, 05:35:21 am »

I am working on a Virtuemart eShop for an organization that sells products at their main place.
They sell there very few products and until now managed that physical shop with paper notes and an Excel file...

I am wondering what could be the best way (efficient and not too intrusive) to manage the same products and stock updated.

I though that using Virtuemart for all transaction would be the best solution. That means a PC present in the physical shop where people could manage their order and pay by CB card or other method choosen. Like that they could track everything registered client, payment, product stock, and so on...

But now I am thinking that this solution is quite heavy to follow...

What could be possible easily ?
Is there an extension for that ? Something to make rapid orders ?...

Thanks for your advises

More information might help
It really depends on the type of store/turnover/products etc

I would use VM in the physical shop
It makes things sooo much simpler and can be fast once you get used to it.

If you have not many customer you can use planethoster for only 5€ per month for eg. without any problem.
Some online CB payment are very cheap, so i think it's a better solution that using a POS.
