Can I make sales with the POS on the computer?

Originally this POS was only for mobile devices. Some customers are using on their PC. To do this, you need to install an additional app called "BlueStacks". However, using this you won't be able to connect to a receipt printer or scanner.To connect them to the PC app, you can use RemixOS. But it can't be 100% that it will be compatible.

The obvious question is why should you have to install another operating system on your PC just to run this software ? If you can run the Back Office on your PC then how hard is it to get the rest of the POS to work ? Those that work from home would not have to mess around with tablets or phones to do business. PC's still rule when it comes to ease and functionality over non-responsive tablets and pokey screened phones !!!

With BlueStacks, I could connect all my hardware. And loyverse is free, so they cannot make a Windows version. You could download BlueStacks or buy a USB or Ethernet hub for your tablet. There are also many business tablets and phones, like Zebra which have a built in scanner and run on Android. Also, a Chromebook like the Acer Chromebook R11 would be a good machine to run the Loyverse app with built in Android, and the Chrome Browser for back office and other tasks.

I installed "BlueStacks" on my PC to emulate Android, then I installed the [Loyverse] App and it worked very well. The [receipt] printer connected via Ethernet, and it opened the cash drawer and printed the receipt correctly. I was searching for that possibility until now. Ufff!!

Brock, how exactly did you manage to connect all your hardware using Bluestacks? Until now I still have no idea how to connect my usb/bluetooth printer to Bluestacks. If you have any insights, kindly share. Thank you.

yes!! Following this. I have installed Loyverse in my Windows 10 using BLUESTACKS but it can't connect to the thermal printer no matter how many times I install it. It's well installed in the computer and is working, but CANNOT connect to the loyverse printer. Please share insights. Thanks!
