Best 9 POS for WooCommerce 2024

What is the purpose of a POS component in WooCommerce?

POS serves to integrate (in some cases, supplant) machines such as a barcode reader, a ticket printer, a cash register, a touch screen, a laptop, a PC, and mobile devices, along with software and their databases. This allows, among other things, to know the inventory in real time, keep track of sales, schedule appointments for services, and more. It works at the front-end level, i.e., as a public interface for employees of a business (or automated sales booths).

If we already use WooCommerce, we are familiar with the checkout process for customers, as the plugin facilitates complex online store tasks. WooCommerce supports both physical and virtual items, allowing customers to evaluate and then purchase through a digital storefront. It provides credit cards, debit cards, PayPal, bank transfers, and other transactions. It even generates digital barcodes, or QR codes, to quickly scan digital tickets and other products.

A WooCommerce POS plugin takes the existing features and advantages of WooCommerce and makes them better. It gives us complete control and management over the in-person sales process through physical stores. If we intend to offer our customers a personalized in-the-flesh shopping experience, WooCommerce POS plugins have the power to give us an edge over the competition through their flexibility and range of customization. Hence the importance of this review.

The POS components described in this note may vary in their operation, but they always place at our disposal a range of functionalities and tools created for computers and tablets. Perhaps not all the components examined offer a native app for Android or iOS, but they do offer responsive web designs so that they can be accessed from mobile devices. Let’s start with the first one:


wePOS is widely used thanks to its free (albeit limited) version; of course, there is a premium version with more functionalities. However, the free version already allows adding the desired number of physical locations together with cash registers, also unlimited in each physical location (i.e., cash registers or other stand-alone devices).

When a cashier logs into wePOS, he/she will be able to choose his/her specific location and counter. The interface has a proper grid layout, as shown in the screenshot above. It also provides us with a quick Ajax search. This helps to search for products as well as customers. Also, wePOS allows product variations (colors, sizes, etc.). The cashier can enter this information when selecting the product. They can also manage several shopping carts at the same time because wePOS allows different parallel transactions in separate tabs.

wePOS makes it possible to accept cash or credit card orders. After an order is processed, the plugin lets you print a physical receipt and even offers customization options for the appearance of receipts.

Among its most interesting features are barcode scanning, offline functionality (although at some point we will have to connect to update the databases), secure login, and tax computation.

The free version of wePOS limits us to cash payments only, making it more interesting to buy the product to have the entire functionalities (USD100 for a single WordPress site at the time of writing). Anyway, it is excellent that there is a free version for us to test its operation. In case we need additional features, we will buy the full version.

Point of Sale System for WooCommerce

Point of Sale System for WooCommerce is our second recommended plugin for managing points of sale with WooCommerce. This component, developed by Webkul, is not free, so it offers unlimited locations and employees. Staff will be able to enter specific shopper data, apply discounts, enter products by code bar (or manually), and also manage different transactions in parallel.

The point-of system for WooCommerce allows transactions in more than one currency. It accepts cash and card payments, even splitting payments between the two methods.

In addition, it offers offline support via a dedicated Chrome extension.

Built with React, it is fast and easy to use, and we can even test a demo online.

Its standard license on the Envato store is USD99: lifetime upgrades for a single site and six months of support (with the option to pay an additional USD35.25 at the time of this article to extend support to a full year).


FooSales is another WooCommerce plugin that stands out for its web version and also for its IOS and Android mobile apps. If we are looking for the convenience of selling products and services with a tablet, FooSales is an excellent choice.

Products can be entered via barcode scanning or quickly searched in the app’s search box. Employees can also manage customer data from the interface and synchronize everything with WooCommerce. It has an offline function.

FooSales supports cash, credit, and debit card payments, along with other configurable methods. It is possible to apply discount coupons to orders and calculate taxes.

This plugin can email WooCommerce receipts to customers and, thanks to mobile apps, print paper receipts. Cashiers also have the option to process refunds with this WooCommerce POS system.

Note that FooSales for WP integrates with the FooEvents component, so you can sell tickets for events.

FooSales can be tested right now in its online demo. It offers a 30-day free trial but also all the features so you can fully test it (no credit card required). Its monthly cost is USD15 for a single site with WooCommerce. If we intend to use it on several different sites, we will have to expend USD 44.

Hike POS

Hike POS is a leading cloud-based point-of-sale software that provides everything you need to grow a business in a comprehensive way. That said, it also offers a dedicated plugin for WooCommerce on WordPress sites. Thanks to this integration, it is possible to synchronize product catalogs and inventory, orders, customer profiles, and everything you can imagine in a professional POS system.

The Hike POS app runs on iOS and PC (no, there is no app for Android systems yet). This plugin offers a fast interface that works both offline and online, and supports barcode scanning. Employees can apply discounts and process credit card payments.

Other useful features include refund processing, assigning PIN numbers to staff so they can log into the app with their own ID, detailed analytics of what is going on with our business, and support for multiple stores.

Hike POS is strong with elegance, and it’s the most expensive of all the plugins reviewed in this article. The more economical plan costs USD 59 per month and does not allow online sales through WooCommerce. That is to say, if we want physical store sales in conjunction with the digital WooCommerce store on our page, we must choose the PLUS plan (USD 99 monthly).

So, better try its 14-day free trial and then evaluate if this POS ends up being what we were looking for.


YITH Point of Sale for WooCommerce is a relatively new WordPress plugin from the YITH developers team, specialists in several widely used plugins for Woo.

YITH POS allows unlimited physical locations and unlimited registrations. Again, checkout staff can search for products or scan barcodes to quickly find products in inventory. Cashiers can also add new products directly from the POS system.

YITH POS demo can be tested online.

YITH POS supports cash, credit, and debit cards, as well as other offline methods. Multiple payment methods can also be used, and the total amount can be split among them.

Cashier employees can also apply discounts, coupons, and markups to adjust the cost of an order. It is possible to print physical receipts, and these can benefit from different templates depending on the type of receipt. The system supports using a special template for each physical store, for example.

YITH Point of Sale for WooCommerce avoids offline mode. Nor does it offer a mobile app (although we can use the system via the web with a design that adapts to any screen).

The price of YITH Point of Sale for WooCommerce is USD 179.99 annually for a single site at the time of writing this review.


OpenPOS, the sixth point-of-sale plugin analyzed today, is, in fact, quite popular. It allows you to synchronize data between your e-commerce and your physical store(s) and is compatible with a multitude of cash registers and barcode scanning devices.

Checkout staff can also add products manually by typing their name or appealing to the SKU. The WooCommerce OpenPOS plugin also supports price variations by weight, rebate coupons, and discounts.

Suitable for a cafeteria, a bazaar, a decoration, lighting, or clothing store; it is also useful for gyms or sports clubs, clinics and hospitals, pubs, markets, and even supermarkets.

Special mention: just activate the “Cafeteria/Restaurant” mode to access necessary functions, such as table management and the kitchen view screen.

Another strong point of OpenPOS is its web app for PC and Mac, which is constantly being improved and enhanced. Its design, speed, and versatility make life easy for employees who need to use the system.

Like many other plugins already mentioned in this article, OpenPOS allows you to split payments between multiple payment methods, make “zero contact” deliveries, and view real-time sales statistics and reports.

We can try an online demo and evaluate its functionalities (including restaurants and cafeterias).

The basic OpenPOS license is USD64 per year for a single site.

Oliver POS

Oliver POS, our seventh nominee, is another powerful WooCommerce POS plugin designed to simplify omnichannel retail store sales. It is a cloud-based POS solution that automatically syncs with our WooCommerce online store.

Oliver POS offers all the critical functions needed for a point of sale: personalized rates, email receipts, payment method management, and refunds.

You can try a demo, but only by appointment. Perhaps this may frustrate you since the plugins analyzed above make available online demos without obstacles (though not all of them do). However, through this —somewhat annoying— method, it is possible to get the free version.

Oliver POS effectively brings together our online store with the physical store: after installation and setup, we can access our customer data, view online orders, and manage inventory on the devices we use. This makes the synchronization of inventory, online store product management, and physical warehouse stock a simple task. The Oliver POS app is available for both iOS and Android.

Adding to its virtues is the ability to track performance and optimize business operations thanks to built-in reports. Among its reports, the customer report, payments, prospects, and sales summaries stand out.

The BASIC plan costs USD 24.99 per month, making it suitable for entrepreneurs and small merchants (followed by a PRO and Enterprise plan). Remember that on the offered plans, there is the possibility of using a free version with reduced functionalities for collections.

Point of Sale for WooCommerce

Point of Sale for WooCommerce is our “eighth passenger” in this analysis. In this case, we are talking about an official WooCommerce extension to link our physical store with our Woo. This extension perhaps stands out for its emphasis on security; it allows us to configure restrictions for cashiers and control over commercial operations. For example, it has built-in options to swap cashiers or log them out after each sale.

With the Point of Sale plugin for WooCommerce, we will be able to manage unlimited points of sale and products per physical store. It also supports discounts and modified rates.

In terms of usability, the extension is incredibly intuitive and easy to use. It allows you to customize the product grids for each department of the store and offers multiple display options. It is also possible to add products at the time of sale with their specific attributes.

The extension is priced at USD 16.59 per month or USD 199 per year at the time of writing.

WooCommerce POS

WooCommerce POS is free. Moreover, it boasts of guaranteeing superior speed by storing our product inventory locally (that is, within the same WooCommerce database). Thus, WooCommerce POS is a WordPress plugin that lacks the need for inventory synchronization as well as monthly subscription payments.

Another of its great advantages is that it comes ready to be translated by typical translation components (such as TranslatePress or the WordPress Multilingual Plugin).

WC POS is also recognized for its detailed reports, which provide a well-focused view of significant statistics. Reports include payments, cashier reports, and store reports. If we need a free, fast, and easy point-of-sale plugin for WooCommerce, WooCommerce POS may be the winner, and that’s why it deserves the final spot in this review.

We can test this plugin immediately in its online demo.

So we come to the end of this analysis, hoping you have found it helpful. Faced with the question, “But what is the best POS plugin for WooCommerce?”, the answer is that it is to the taste of the consumer. It will depend on our special needs or pretensions and, of course, how much money we intend to invest. If economy is not an issue, FooSales and Hike POS offer well-polished solutions and have an app for mobile devices. If we don’t want to spend a penny, we can use WooCommerce POS or the free versions of OliverPOS and WePOS.

No need to worry about compatibility, as all options work very well, and they are also compatible with the popular Shoptimizer theme, widely used in the community.
