Point of Sale for Virtuemart in 2020?
« on: April 30, 2020, 15:21:40 pm »
What would be the best POS solution to combine a VM3 shop (www.obeliskfashion.be) and a physical shop with the same products?

The cashier in de physical shop should be able to scan a product to be sold at the counter, so that stock lowers automatically. As payment service provider we work with Mollie, customers pay by Bancontact (Belgium).

Thank you

If you can print QR code, you can use an URL to add to cart.
If you use scancode EAN13, you can create a module to search by scancode, if the scancode is find in the database > add to the cart.
For the POS system, you can use a specific template, to have a light display, with big category buttons and products and a quick search for eg.

Is there some footage/ video how a barcode of a product is scanned? And how it is turned into an URL? I assume that this URL automatically adapts stock en sales administration?

What i mean is this https://www.the-qrcode-generator.com/ but it need to generate "add to cart" for each product
EANcode cannot be an URL

I am also looking for a cash register system (POS) for our shop, which uses the same database from our Virtuemart Shop. It is important when we sell a product in store that this inventory is automatically adjusted in Virtuemart.
We used POS for webshops, but this company is no longer responding.

Thanks in advance
