WooCommerce POS


WooCommerce POS is a simple interface for taking orders at the Point of Sale using your WooCommerce store. WooCommerce POS provides an alternative to Vend or Shopify POS – no need to sync inventory and no monthly subscription fees.

Malisima, no: LO SIGUIENTE.

La aplicación es malisima, no funcionan la mitad de las cosas y lo que es peor aún, el soporte de la versión PRO es una estafa en toda regla. No dan ningún tipo de soporte. Te hacen gastar 129 Dolares y no te contestan a los mails nunca. No la recomendaria a nadie en absoluto.

Very Disappointing

So now we’re going to https://github.com/kilbot/WooCommerce-POS not via the WordPress repository.

That’s interesting. Curious but interesting,

When I asked you six months or more ago about the “pro” edition and when it was going to have the facility to work on categories, I was told to check the roadmap.

Well here’s the roadmap http://wcpos.com/roadmap/

So many things deleted??

I feel obliged to ask a question.
Have you given up and we should go to YITH for our solutions or are you still trying to sell this “crock of crap” as a pro version for US$99.00????

It did look hopeful but now????

It dosn’t work with the buy one get the next at a discount plugin for Woocommerce so, in your shop you sell one and there is NO DISCOUNT on the second item even though your store label (on the shelf) says there is. It only picks up the “base price” from Woocommerce.

As a commercial hosting ISP. I cannot afford to play with children. Back to YITH.

When you have built something that works, come back and try again. As a POS system, if you, as a user, that’s what you need then good luck.

For an extra US$99.00 that extra doesn’t work either. It does, basically, nothing extra, Certainly not variable or multiple prices in a “REAL SHOP” environment. Buy one and get the second as a discount. That is a Woocommerce plugin.

I give up with the author, if he is still developing! He will tell you what he thinks you need (his interpretation) but he will not give you what you require to run an efficient POS system.

If you are seriously developing this system then you (or any other WP plugin developer) can contact me via the contact link at www.hoststlucia.com and we will try our best to assist any WP plugin development.

Your choice!

This plugin is abadonned

I mean, it’s been almost a year I’ve been using this plugin, I have seen staff comming over a million times telling me that the POS isn’t working, again. Minor bugs with Ajax calls, nonces going wild here and there, nothing too crazy. But seriously, there is a complete lack of updating. Once upon a time there was an offline version that was to come up. Never seen that happening, this is literally abandoned now.

Not A Professional POS

I have purchased the Pro Version over a year ago and am really disappointed with the lack of updates and bug fixes. These seems more like a side project than something the developer cares about.

Just to state the obvious there has been 1 update in 2016. If you run a business having a dependable plugin the developer actually uses is important. I am constantly getting errors after transactions run and there are small bugs that frustrates myself and staff.

There’s a huge list of bugs that are never addressed. At this point the pro version should be free because it’s still in beta. This plugin needs a lot of work for a business to use it on a live environment. Good thing my customers are patient because if any busy retail store used this POS people would walk out of the store having to wait so long. It’s very slow and sometimes loading products takes a while if the cache got erased.

Webmasters looking for a POS system they can rely on should move one and purchase: https://codecanyon.net/item/woocommerce-point-of-sale-pos/7869665. Check out the changelog and you will see how active the developer is with this plugin. 2-4 updates per month.

I usually hold my tongue when it comes to negative reviews but the lack of support needs to be addressed if this plugin is to offer a pro version.

Overall it’s a good idea and layout but really needs to get past the “beta” stages for any business to use it in an actual retail environment. I hope the developer can spend more time into finishing this because if it works it would be great. If you get this plugin DO NOT buy it until the developer can deliver their promises of bug fixes and updates.


No coupon support, buggy JavaScript (doesn’t play nicely with certain other plugins and browsers).

The other POS plugin on Code Canyon is far better and is half the price of the pro version of this plugin.
