Installation

Minimum Requirements

  • PHP version 5.3 or greater (PHP 5.6 or greater is recommended)
  • MySQL version 5.0 or greater (MySQL 5.6 or greater is recommended)
  • WooCommerce 3.1.0

Automatic installation

Automatic installation is the easiest option as WordPress handles all the file transfers. To do an automatic installation of FooSales, login to your WordPress dashboard, navigate to the Plugins menu and click ‘Add New’.

In the search field type “FooSales” and click ‘Search Plugins’. Once you’ve found the FooSales plugin, you can view details about it such as release information, rating and description. Most importantly of course, you can install it by simply clicking “Install Now”.

Manual installation

The manual installation method involves downloading the FooSales plugin and uploading it to your web server via your favorite FTP application. The WordPress codex contains instructions on how to do this here.

Updating

Automatic updates should work seamlessly, but as always though, please ensure that you back-up your website just in case.

If for some reason you encounter issues with the shop/category pages after an update, you simply need to flush the permalinks by going to WordPress > Settings > Permalinks and hitting ‘Save’. That should revert things back to normal.

If I don’t live in the U.S. can I still use FooSales?

FooSales works in any country that is supported by WooCommerce but only the English language is supported at present.

How do barcodes work in FooSales?

Only users with the following WordPress roles can login to the FooSales app:

  • Administrator
  • Editor
  • Author
  • Contributor
  • Shop_manager

Reviews

Great POS, minor Issues

POS is very easy to setup and learn and very fast even with thousands of products. It even supports updating stock from the app and doesn’t allow you to oversell inventory (which other POS apps frustratingly allow).

My minor issues are that the scanning barcodes doesn’t work on Ipad or Android and that sales tax is displayed incorrectly until the transaction completes (it pulls the correct data from the site directly to process the sale).

Support was very quick and easy to reach although they claimed they were unable to help with the bar code issue unless I was using an actual barcode scanner (the app supports the built-in camera and Bluetooth scanner).

I’m leaving 4 stars until the issues are resolved but this POS is amazing and absolutely worth dealing with the minor issues.

Great plugin

Great plugin the there is issues with it when I update the products using the app it makes sale price zero , which make products discounted 100%

I hope foosales team fix the issue asap to start updating my inventory

Another thing the app Bluetooth not supporting Inateck Bluetooth Wireless Barcode Scanner (BCST-70) , tested on iPad pro

Hopefully they add it soon

Finally order history I cannot see orders placed through admin or website !! Tested on iPad pro

Many thanks
