Allow placing order with out of stock products
Sometimes, your business may want to allow the products to be enabled with backorders due to a lack of inventory at that moment in the current warehouse/location. While re-stocking to the current warehouse/location, you still allow your customers to purchase out-of-stock products.
POS Order Number
In order to differentiate orders from POS with orders from different sources, you can set up a custom order number as preferred. This module is effectively used for the purpose of managing orders to optimize your resources.
Assign Location To Order
For some businesses with only one location or warehouse, a location ID can be added for every order so that store managers or staff can easily track the order details when needed.
For products or services with large order value, you or your customer tend to request to generate a quotation, which details how much a product or service will cost. Normally, the quotation is provided before a product or service is purchased.
Allow selecting multiple warehouses during checkout
For flexibility when checking out and fulfilling orders, you can assign warehouses to each product in the cart. This helps the inventory manager to better track the inventory for each warehouse.
Some discounts can only be applied in the retail stores with direct purchase. Customers can be offered a fixed value, percentage or any promotion programs that you can think of. This module is available in Offline mode only.
In order to better interact with your customers, this module helps to allow them to see the order details or view the advertisement of your store in a different browser. By using the other browser to access https://2ndscreen.connectpos.com/ and entering a pre-generated 6-digit token, the second screen display will be linked immediately.
Some customers can request an e-invoice to be sent to their email besides the paper receipt or invoice. In order to fulfill this, this module is added for you to set up and send e-invoices to notify customers about an owed amount for a product or service rendered. Normally, the invoice is provided after a product or service is sent to the customer.
Some businesses, like restaurants or bars, encourage tipping as a way for customers to appreciate the product or service provided. Tips are offered to each salesperson and are recorded within the ConnectPOS system.

Not only is it a common way to motivate and reward salespeople, commissions can also be designed to encourage specific sales behaviors.
