PHP POS is a hybrid point of sale (POS) solution that helps small and startup retail businesses across various industries to manage their day to day business operations, interact with customers and process financial transactions.
PHP POS can be accessed via multiple devices, including desktops, laptops and smartphones and users can operate it across multiple retail locations. With the inventory management feature, users can add items to their list of available stock and track sales.
Retailers can also create store accounts for customers and offer custom gift cards via the platform’s customer management application. Additionally, PHP POS supports multiple languages and also allows retailers to accept payments via credit cards.
PHP POS is available both on-premise and via the cloud and offers apps for Android and iOS devices. Services are offered on a monthly subscription basis that includes support via product videos and an online knowledge base.

I came across phpPOS while researching different POS systems when we were first opening. Suggested by a user on /r/smallbusiness, we were seeking a POS option that allowed us to utilize categorized products for our own stock, consignment based sales, and reporting features. Another caveat we held was that the POS was within our "limited" budget at the time -- phpPOS fit all of those needs, and more.
We purchased, and two years later still use, the stand-alone version of phpPOS which fit our needs perfectly. We only use one register, but all staff have their own unique password protected logins and we can easily backup our inventory, sales history, etc. to an external drive. For larger businesses that require concurrent registers, etc -- you may want to consider the online version instead.
Very happy with phpPOS and would definitely suggest it to other small business folks out there looking for a robust yet affordable POS option.
- detailed inventory options with categorization
- ability to separate consignment sales and suppliers
- product / service separation
- good reporting options
- can customize with knowledge of php
- extremely affordable
- stand-alone product -- service outages don't affect your sales!
- item-grid compatible with touch-screen (we have too many items, so don't utilize this feature -- but it's there!)
Very little cons. Never had any major issues, nor had to resort to customer support. The POS is intuitive enough to figure out on its own.
Gift cards can be a little confusing at first.
Sleek and tiny -- can run on any machine really.

We have used this software since Day 1 of our company InfinityMeals. I'm a PHP techy but my associates who are not so IT inclined were also able to use it easily.
We use it in our restaurant to punch in orders and track our inventory and generates sales reports for analysis of products purchased.
We wish there are extra features like further customization to the receipt to reduce the length of receipt printed. Printing out a kitchen copy. Store a sale, associate it to a table number to be retrieved later for final payment.
Another huge feature would be to calculate the sales for the date and equate it to the amount of raw ingredients that has been used for proper inventory. Wishful thinking.
Another feature would be to customize an order like. Order combo 1 with a sandwich and a salad with a particular drink and it would automatically list it on the receipt and the deduct it from the inventory.
Other features for centralized server.
Having a central server that retrieves sales information from multiple branches and consolidates it into once server.
Having an offline mode then reconcile the sales to the central server for general reporting.
An API so we can develop our own interfaces and use premade functions in PHPPOS
Once those features are incorporated then I would totally pay for the extra features and mark it a straight 5/5.
Thank you so much for the software and looking forward to grow with it as much as possible.
Ease of use
Great User Interface
Straight forward functionality
Rapid updates. :)
Try it and you'll love it.
Definitely perfect for shops and straight forward cafes and retails where it uses concrete inventory.
