Je vends des produits de beauté sur internet et aussi dans des marchés privés ou je dois aller très vite lors d’une vente.
Dans les marchés je n’ai pas le temps de choisir le client, encore moins l’adresse (qui n’existe pas) et encore moins le status.
Comment faire pour automatiser donc une vente sur un marché en sortant juste un ticket à chaque client?

une touche pour ouvrir la caisse serait utile,
une connexion aux machines de payement telles que Sumup (avec impression de ticket serait parfait.

Hello, Salomão,
Thank you for your comment.
POS system requires customer data, so you can just create and use default John Doe customer, so all the clients you do not want to register can be under this name.
As for the integration with Sumup, Store Manager does not support it buy you can submit a feaure request, so it could be reviewed by our dev team.
As for tickets, POS allows to print PDF invoices and reciepts for orders.
