  1. Is it possible to add a receipt printing instead of invoice printing? The receipt printer is much faster compared to a laser invoice printer.

    1. We have some touch screen features such as item grid, payments buttons, but we still recommend a keyboard too. In 15.1 we plan to add on screen keyboard.

    2. Great News Chris... for us touch screen is indispensable to quickly sales in PDV terminal. In fact we use touch only for PDV (we have 3 in the store). You have an estimated date ????

  7. Is there a way to have multiple price levels for customers. Say if I have a group of people that are part of a club I enter their name and it automatically gives them price level A, B, or C? Basically different percentages from cost or sale price.

  10. The download version, does that work as a stand alone version? Can is run on an iPad?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. The download version requires a server of some sort. You would need the server to be a regular desktop computer or lease server space from a company such as host gator or godaddy (Examples).

      Then you can run it from your iPad.

      The cloud version has this built in already where you can just run right from iPad.

  11. Add collapsed and expanded functionality according to item categories like JS Tree (https://www.jstree.com/demo) in Manage categories section, it will be very useful (regarding UX)

  12. Thank you for the info; we will what we can do. This might not happen for 15.0 as it works now and is something that would be nice but not required.

    ReplyDelete

    1. Yes that is not required but very effective when there are large numbers of categories and subcategories.

      Thanks

  14. Please add more feature for CRM. I mean we can collect more data about the customers, not just the text data. But image or another type of data. For us in beauty industry, we need to collect information about customer's skin condition (image) every time they come to store. I think other industry will need this kind of feature also. Because the more we know about ourcustomer the more we can sell relevant item. This is what big company always do. Google, facebook, microsoft, etc. All of them collect more information about their customer so they can show you the relevant ads. Google make their great softwares free just so you can give them more information about you.

  15. Is it possible to turn off customer loyalty per customer. For example if I have wholesale customers that won't be eligible for any additional discounts. It looks like we can select it in the checkout but I would rather not have an employee who doesn't know allow an extra discount
