Feature request: Modifier and Variants


The more feature gets "likes", then this feature has a bigger chance of being implemented.

Hi, Would it be possible to add a cost price option for modifiers? This would assist greatly in keeping the food/item cost accurate.

We are a salon and often we have customers who have longer than usual hair length and we might need to chargr extra for these. Modifiers help us to add certain value over the selling price. But it would help if we could decide this markup on the spot rather than predefined.

I am looking to have one item that when higher volume of the product, will be a discounted price. Is there no way to add quantities to variants so they can inlude price and weight if need be.

Color coding for add-ons in modifier. 

Calculation of profit margin by including cost of add-on items in modifier.

YES! It would be nice if there was a way to add cost to the modifier (and composite maker) that way the price changes as the amount of modifier/item changes.

You can update the pre-made composite item varients to include the unit (cm/m/in/y, gram, kg, lb, pieces, etc.) of each component/product in the cost section.

It would be nice if there was a way to use the modifier in a similar fashion.

Name of product
cost per unit
type of unit in cost of product section (cm, in, meter, yard, milliliter, pieces, gram, etc.)
quantity sold

retail price for the amount sold to be automatically calculated as well as manually (right now retail price is only manual)

whether or not the unit of the product shows up on the receipt should be an option

It will help if there was a calculator on how much a client should pay for labor, shipping, and handling. (time, distance)
Example: An employee makes 10/hr but works for only 5 min for a client. How can the employee quickly and easily calculate that?

better variant finder for composite and non-composite items
the search results still yield too many options and if you try to narrow it down the searching stops

A customer comes in wanting a bouquet that's custom made. They want red, yellow, pink, and orange flowers, ribbon, and cellophane. They want 5 flowers of each color, some ribbon, and cellophane.

Store paid: 20 (per color) for 10 flowers (per color)
(20 for 40 red flowers, 20 for 40 yellow flowers, etc.)
(2 per flower)
Cost per bundle after markup: 40 per color (4 per flower)
Amount of flowers customer wants: 20
Retail price of flowers: 80

Store paid 6 for 3m/3.28 yards, (300 centimeters/118.11 inches), of ribbon
(2 per meter/0.02 per cm)
Cost after markup: 12 per spool/bundle (4/m or 0.04/cm)
10 cm of ribbon just so happens to be used
Retail price of ribbon: 0.40

Store paid: 50 for a pack of 100 pieces (0.05/piece)
Cost after markup: 100 per pack (0.10/piece)
Pieces used: 1
Retail price of cellophane: 0.10

Cost of product: 80.50


Back Office:

A couple of things we find frustrating with variants are:-

1) 20 Character limit - This seems very short and we are always running foul of this. For example.I want an Item called Water then Variants like 'Glass - Tap Water', 'Bottled - Still Lemon & Lime', 'Bottled - Sparkling Cranberry & Raspberry'.

We cant do this as there aren't enough characters availabke for variants, although there are for Item names and Modifier names.


2) We cant see any way to control the order that Variants appear on the screen. In modifiers we can drag items up and down the order list, but cant seem to do the equivalent for Variants.

Otherwise we are finding the system very good, using it for a newly opened Cafe.

Under modifier it would be really helpful to be able to multiply Items. E.g. If someone orders a meal and would like to add on more then one extra e.g Hashbrown and more then one extra Avocado etc rather then making the list of addons endless, it would be much better to be able to multiply each item such as + or -

When I as waiter take orders, when choose "kebab box" it has to be with Rice or French fries.

The kebab box shouldn’t be added to receipt without choosing one of these modifier (Rice or French fries.)

I work with quite a few restaurants and cafes in Melbourne, Australia. One thing that my customers would really like to see is more flexibility with the modifiers:

  1. Optional modifiers - right now, every time we select an item with a modifier, a pop up appears. For example, if I order a cheese burger without any modifications, I need to close the pop up every time. This gets annoying in a fast food environment as there are certain items only require a modification only sometimes. It would be much more user friendly if the pop up was compulsory for chosen modifiers, and no pop up for optional modifiers.
  2. Conversational modifiers - it would be really beneficial to have the ability to have prefixes to modifiers. People may order less cheese, extra garlic and so on. I know the comments section could be used here but having prefix buttons "less, minus, extra" could help the order taking massively.
  3. More modifiers to fit the screen. With some places like pizza shops, they have quite a few modifiers and scrolling down the screen is not ideal. The screen space could really be maximised if we had 4-6 columns instead of 2.

I love the effort that you guys have put into loyverse but I thought I'd give my two cents as I'm looking to offer POS Solutions for local restaurants and cafes.

Would love to get some kind of acknowledgement from the loyverse team with regards to our feature requests!
