Limited Products Loading
Sometimes we only need to show a limited number of products at a time. If the dealer prefers to show only popular items during a particular session you can use the Limited Products Loading option. Go to the Point of Sale Sessions Settings and under the Inventory section, enable Limited Products Loading. If you want to load all of the remaining products in the background you can enable it.
Opening a session only the most recently used products will be displayed.
Limited Partners Loading
Sometimes there may be a lot of customers and you need to keep all customer data saved. In certain cases, it is unnecessary and extremely difficult. In such situations, salesmen just want to keep their regular customer list. Open the Point of Sale Sessions and enable Limited Partners Loading. There is an option to load all of the remaining partners in the background.
Now start a new session. When you open the Customer option, you will be able to see only the most recently used customers.
It is not always possible to ship things as soon as the order is confirmed or as soon as payment is received. If the seller needs more time to deliver after the payment is received. Then open the Point of sale session and enable the Ship Later option.
Then add the warehouse, specific route, and shipping policy. Now open a product and under the inventory tab set the lead time. The customer lead time is the same as the delivery lead time. The time it takes for the sale order to be confirmed and delivered. The customer lead time is the number of days the customer is assured of delivery.
