Automatic installation

Automatic installation is the easiest option as WordPress handles all the file transfers. To do an automatic installation of FooSales POS, login to your WordPress admin area, 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 POS 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 POS 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 clicking ‘Save’. That should revert things back to normal.

Please see our Pricing page for current plans and pricing information.

Does the FooSales POS plugin work anywhere in the world?

FooSales POS works in any country that WooCommerce supports which is practically all countries. WooCommerce currently integrates with over 100 different payment gateways.

Can I process card payments through FooSales POS?

FooSales POS currently offers a direct integration with Square Terminal (web app only), Square Readers (tablet apps only) and the Square point of sale (Square POS) app to process payments. Square hardware supports EMV chip cards, magnetic stripe cards, Apple Pay, Google Pay, Samsung Pay and NFC.

Is FooSales POS just a plugin?

FooSales POS is an app based WooCommerce POS and is available on iPad, Android tablet and a web app. The apps connect directly to your WooCommerce store using a lightweight WordPress plugin. Our native apps provide various benefits that simply cannot be achieved using plugin based POS solutions. These include offline mode, more reliable hardware integration, better printer support, built-in camera support for barcode scanning, and Square payments integration. That said, we also offer a web app so you get the best of both worlds.

What makes FooSales POS different from other POS systems?

Most traditional point of sale systems are stand-alone systems and are not designed to natively work with ecommerce. They rely on bridging plugins to sync product catalogs between WooCommerce and their own catalog management systems. FooSales on the other hand is an ecommerce first platform. FooSales POS connects directly to WooCommerce and uses it as a central database. This means you won’t have any syncing issues and your data is always secure and up to date, no matter how many stores or devices you connect.

Can I run the FooSales POS web app on my own domain?

Yes you can but you will need to purchase the FooSales for WooCommerce extension which is sold exclusively on the WooCommerce Marketplace.

Do you charge for technical support?

Support is free, however, the only support channel that we currently offer is via email. Our support team is distributed across a few different time zones and we only communicate in English at present.

How safe and private is my data?

FooSales POS is ultra-secure since it does not store any of your store data on our servers. All of your data remains on your own website, tablet or computer. FooSales POS simply connects to your website, pulls your product catalog, and sends new orders back to your site. FooSales POS also complies with the EU’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) for added peace of mind.

How long does the FooSales POS setup process take?

Setup only takes a minute. Install the FooSales POS plugin, link your websites URL to a FooSales account and start selling.

We recommend visiting the Get Started page which will guide you through the entire setup process.

Can I run FooSales POS on any computer?

Yes! The FooSales POS web app runs in most modern web browsers including Google Chrome, Safari, Firefox and Microsoft Edge.

How difficult is it to setup FooSales POS as I’m not very technical?

The FooSales POS setup process is very easy. The most technical part is installing the FooSales POS WordPress plugin and connecting your WooCommerce store to FooSales POS. The FooSales POS WordPress plugin can be installed directly from your WordPress admin area by selecting ‘Add New’ in the Plugins menu and then search for FooSales POS. You can also download and install the plugin manually if you prefer.

We recommend visiting the Get Started page which will guide you through the entire setup process.

Great application with bugs, need improvement. the most important thing is that it stops working and unfortunately you can not operate your store until they answer you, this does not make sense because if it is a Friday they can answer you after 2 days. There must be a solution to run locally on the server. and in addition to renew the products in web version. I get a lot of complains from my client because in a retail store it is not possible to stop working for while because causes chaos.

We run a record store with literally thousands of different products and records, and FooSales has been an extremely important part of our sales processing, stock management and accounting. As all of our products are added to our online WooCommerce store, we needed a way to record sales in our physical walk-in store in such a way that stock would be adjusted on our online store automatically. FooSales has been the perfect solution for this. We found FooSales to work very well with variable products too - which is important for our industry. The daily totals is a great way to keep tabs on sales totals from anywhere - I log in even off-site so that I can keep tabs on day's sales from the shop.

I've been using this plugin (starting with a FREE trial) from March 2020 and upgraded to the paid version later... I think that should be enough! However, there's more. I use the plugin for my bike store. I use it for everything from inventory updates, price updates to actual sales and quick lookups (my SKU's are so many that I cannot remember all item prices). I use on my iPads with the inbuilt camera as barcode scanner during checkout. If you run a store, this is FASTER and better than WooCommerce's original POS (I have the paid version installed, no comparison) Frequent updates to keep current with the latest woocommerce... Not to mention, the BEST Customer support ever. They helped me during early (March) pandemics, that is the actual reason why I stuck to them and got to know the product better. Thanks guys!

What an amazing product. Looks like their team is actually building a sick ass POS. We have it with the square integration and the mstar pop all in one POS system with a samsung tablet. Whenever we had a problem, support solved it. Keep at it!

Oh how I wanted to like FooSales! It is a beautiful application with native iOS app that works perfectly and is super fast. I have mobile technicians who perform work in customers' homes and I need them to be able to put together an invoice and collect payment while in the home. The vast majority of customers prefer to use a card. It's just too tedious for the technician to create an order in FooSales and then go to the Square app to collect the payment, then go back to FooSales to record the information. It would be so much simpler to just setup Square to do everything. If you have a strictly cash-based mobile business that you need to sync inventory with an online store this could work. Or if you have the patience to pop into another app to run a card, FooSales looks awesome.
