How to setup multiple store view on Magestore POS

In the omnichannel retail business, some merchants want to separate products, prices, customers, promotion, language, and currency between different locations/outlets and online website.

As of August 2019, this feature is supported in Magestore POS Professional and Enterprise editions.

You can do this by creating multiple Websites on Magento. After that, link the POS Location to the Store View of the Website.

Configure Master Data for offline channel

If you haven’t configured multiple websites, please follow these steps:

Step 1: Create Website, Store, and Store View, which will be linked to the POS:

You can follow Magento’s instructions.

Create a new Website, Store, & Store View

Step 2: Add Product to the new Website:

To sell the items on POS, they need to be added to the website AND the stock of that POS location. There are three options for you add products to a website:

  • Option 1. Add product individually (please follow Magento’s guide)
  • Option 2. Add products in bulk:
    • Go to Catalog > Product;
    • In the product grid, select the products you want to add to that website;
    • In the Action dropdown menu, select Update Attribute;
    • Under Websites, select the website you want to add the product to.
  • Option 3. Import products using CSV file (you can check out Magento’s guide)
Add product to a new Website

A note about product category: If you want to set up separate categories for each website, you can set up a new root category. After this, assign the new category to the Store of Store View (please follow Magento’s guide).

Configure Root Category for Store.

Configure additional data for offline channel

You can also configure addition data for your POS such as language, currency, promotion, etc.

To do this, please set up data for the Store View/Website which you have created in the above steps.

  • Configure language: Magestore POS will use the default language of your Magento site. To change this, you’ll need to set up the language of Store View. Please follow Magento’s instruction here.
Configure language of Store View
  • Configure currency and rate: Magestore POS uses the default currency of Magento site. To change POS currency and rate, you’ll need to set up currency and rate of Store View. Please follow Magento’s instruction.
Configure currency for Store View
  • Configure Customer Scope: Magestore POS inherits Magento’s customer scope. By default, Magento limits customer account information to the website where the account was created. You can change customer scope to Global to share accounts across websites and POS.
    1. On the Admin sidebar, tap Stores. Then under Settings, choose Configuration.
    2. In the panel on the left, under Customers, choose Customer Configuration.
    3. Expand the Account Sharing Options section.
    4. Change the value in the dropdown to Global.
Change the scope of Customer Account sharing
  • Change display product name on POS: you’ll need to change the product name in the linked Store View. Please follow Magento’s instruction.
Change the product name in Store View
  • Configure Product Price: by the default, the scope of product price is Global. That means the price is the same across all sales channels (online website & POS). If you want to set up different product prices for different sales channels, you’ll have to change the price scope to Website, then change the price by the Website.
    1. On the Admin menu, tap Stores. Then under Settings, choose Configuration.
    2. In the panel on the left under Catalog, choose Catalog.
    3. Scroll down to the Price section. Then, set Catalog Price Scope to Website.
    4. When complete, tap Save Config.
    5. Then go to each product under Catalog > Products menu;
    6. Choose the specific Store View, then change the value in the Price field as well as Advanced Pricing.
Change the scope of product price to Website
Set up different product prices by Websites
Set up Special Price & Tier Price by Website
Create catalog promotion rule
Create shopping cart promotion rule

Link POS Location (offline channel) to specific Store View

When your configuration is complete, the final step is to link the POS location with the store view. This ensures that the POS will inherit the correct settings from the linked store view.

Check data on your POS

After finishing all the steps above, you should log in to your POS and check the data displayed on POS (language, currency, product list, product price, promotions, etc.) to make sure that it has been set up as you need.

Happy Birthday Magestore PWA POS!

Exactly one year ago, the journey of Magestore PWA POS started. We officially released the beta version of the first Magento PWA POS on August 7th, 2018.

Magestore PWA POS is a best-fit solution for physical stores who use Magento system and want to sell faster. It’s native with Magento so all data is synchronized instantly across the system. So you can control everything in your Magento backend (including POS settings). It’s a one time payment for a lifetime use with unlimited users, locations, and devices.

Today, we’re excited to share this special moment with you – our customers, partners, and employees who always company on the evolution of Magestore PWA POS. Let’s trace the journey of Magestore PWA POS over one year.

Looking back – How our journey began

Our journey started with our motivation to continuously improve and deliver a better POS system to all Magento retails. We know that fast and reliable performance is the highest priority to help retail stores keep up with rush hour. A good retail POS system also needs a user-friendly interface, accurate data sync and high data security. That was why we decided to apply PWA technology for POS system. 

On August 7th, 2018 we had our first beta version of Magestore PWA POS. Our POS inherits many these features of PWA technology. So, it enables ultrafast checkout speed, online-offline synchronization in real time and inventory visibility across the system. Three weeks after launching the beta version, we had 32 customers to sign up to be the early adopters.

With the feedback of the beta users, we continued to develop and improve the product, and had the official launch of Magestore PWA POS on September 6th, 2019

We now have more than 120 PWA POS customers from across industries and countries around the world. Let’s take a look at the key milestones of Magestore PWA POS

In February 2019, we released the latest version of our POS that is fully compatible with Magento 2.3. With 2.3, Magento introduced a new feature called Multi-source Inventory (MSI). So our POS plus Magento 2.3 gives retailers a better way to handle their inventory. Now merchants can manage stock in multiple locations. They can link multiple warehouses to one or many websites without relying on third-party extensions.

Also, we developed a PWA POS exclusively for the Australian market. It comes with the same great performance, but with a set of more localized set of features, e.g. integration with Tyro EFTPOS, Zip Pay.

In the next time, we will also develop the new features for Magestore PWA POS to bring Magento retailers the high-quality product that meets your business growth speed.
