ERPNext’s 5 Step Point Of Sale

Step 1: Setup Your Inventory

The Stock module in ERPNext allows you to integrate your inventory and performs automatic stock ledger posting. In the Stock Settings, make sure that the perpetual inventory setting is turned on.

Step 2: Add Item Prices

Item Price allows you to set the prices of your products. You may have one or more Price Lists based on multi-currency, branch-specific product offerings, and other factors.

Step 3: Configure POS Profile

You'll need to make a Point of Sale Profile now. For each retail outlet, you can create several profiles. One or more users can be included in a single POS Profile. Cashiers have the ability to create Cash Closing Vouchers as well.

Step 4: Open POS

4.1 - Type "POS" into the awesome bar, and "Open POS" will appear as a suggestion. The POS screen appears once you pick it. You can choose the customer (one client can be defined as "Cash Sales/Branch Name").

4.2 - You can include the things that the buyer wants to purchase. There is a feature that allows you to navigate through the product list by Item Code, Item Name, Item Serial Number, or Barcode. You can also use a scanner to scan item barcodes or serial numbers.

4.3 - Then, to finish the deal, click the "Pay" option to pay for it with cash or a credit card (as per the setup of payment modes in POS Profile) If a customer has paid more than the outstanding balance, ERPNext calculates the difference automatically.

Step 5: Invoice your customer

In POS Profile, you can choose the default print format template for the system-generated POS Sales Invoice.
