BetterHQ allows you to add various merchandise items to sell using POS. POS displays your merchandise clearly in the order most convenient to you. Simply add what you wish to sell to your BetterHQ account and process the payments for your clients.

You have the option to add multiple variants of your product at different prices to suit your business needs. BetterHQ also allows you to edit and manage your stock inventory at any time.

To Add Products to POS:

  1. Add Merchandise to your Products list here

  2. Or, go to Settings > Product List > Add Product

  3. Give your product a name/title

  4. Select 'Merchandise' as the product type from the drop down menu

  5. Once 'Merchandise' has been selected, 3 toggles will appear in the top right hand corner of the Product Details box. The first toggle ensures the product is active. The second toggle - 'List in POS', ensures the product will be listed for selection within the POS Terminal. The third toggle - 'POS Tile', will add a tile to the POS interface for selection.

  6. Add all additional information regarding the product such as the category, the amount in stock, the low stock reminder (the amount of product remaining before you would like to be notified of low stock), the barcode for the product and the price of the product.

  7. You can also add product variants, a product description and an image for your product. In POS, when you add an image for each of your products it is visible on the interface for easy identification of products.

  8. Select locations for this product. If you are running multiple stores, select the location/stores for that product so it appears listed in POS for that store. If not selected, it won't display for sale.

Tip: When using POS, you can search for a product/merchandise item by searching the name or by scanning the barcode. In your product details, adding the barcode enables you to scan your product for ease of use.

Add/Remove Merchandise for POS from your Product List:

  1. Go to your product list

  2. Use the checkboxes on the far right hand side to select the merchandise item/s.

  3. Once selected, two buttons will appear in the banner. Use the dropdown menus to Add/Allow or Remove

    1. Allow Sale in POS: Allow or Remove

    2. POS Tile: Add or Remove

To Add and Manage Variants of a Product:

  1. Add Merchandise to your Products list here

  2. Or, go to Settings > Product List > Add Product

  3. In the Variants box, select the toggle named 'Product Variants'

  4. Click Manage. The variants pop-up box will appear.

  5. To add an attribute select 'Manage Attributes' from the banner. Create new attributes to suit your business and products that you sell by typing into the Attribute name box. Attributes such as colour and size are available by default. Click Save.

  6. To assign attributes such as colour or size to your product select 'Assign Product Attributes' in the banner. Click the '+Add Attribute' button. A maximum of 3 variants are allowed. Choose your attribute from the drop down menu and add the possible values of the variant by clicking the '+Add Value' button. Default colours and sizes are readily available for you and can be removed at any time by clicking the '-' button.

  7. Once a product attribute has been assigned you can manage your inventory. To manage your attribute stock, select 'Manage attribute stock' in the product variants banner. Select the 'Manage Inventory on Attributes' toggle. The attributes will be listed in rows. For each attribute add the price for the item, cost of goods sold (COGS), stock number, barcode, low stock reminder and select the toggle to be shown on POS. As sales are made, the stock count will be adjusted accordingly.

  8. Click Save.

To Edit or Add more Stock:

  1. Go here

  2. Or, go to your Product List

  3. Select the product you wish to adjust the stock for.

  4. In the Product Details box, on the 'In Stock' row, select 'Edit Stock'. A pop up box will appear.

  5. In the 'New Stock' box, the value added here will be added to the existing stock in hand.

  6. In the 'Edit Existing' box, the number of available stock is stated. You can change this to create the new stock in hand.

  7. You can also select the 'Notification ' toggle on the 'In Stock' row. This will display on-screen out of stock notification icons.

  8. To update the stock of a product with variants, go to the Variants box and click 'Manage'. To manage your attribute stock, select 'Manage attribute stock' in the product variants banner and modify the stock count.
