Out of stock notification at POS


Recommended Posts

It is quite popular feature request to notify on items that are out of stock at POS.

How would you prefer this to be implemented?

1. Do not show items that are out of stock at POS (make them unavailable for sale).

2. Get prompt message about those items when trying to add them to a ticket. In this case you still would be able to sell these items if you physically have them in stock (if you have the wrong record of your current stock, e.g. if you did not update it in time after supply of goods).

Definitely second option - possibly with an amber corner banner / mask over the POS “button” for the item when it enters “low-stock” (if defined) and red banner /mask when it enters “out of stock” state. 

POS operators may be confused if an item just disappeared and spend time looking for it

this option is actually the best

the easiest thing to implement if user selects item that is out of stock just give notification and do not allow user to add item to cart

I realized that I am required to sync before I can see the correct "Out of Stock" messages. I believe that this is because the check is online. Is there a way to improve this?

This is important because, let say I sell a huge amount and get out of stock, I won't get the message in the next transaction if I did not manually perform a sync, which will cause my business to oversell.
