Loyverse overview

What is Loyverse?

Loyverse is a mobile POS (point of sale) and inventory system designed to serve small businesses such as beauty salons, coffee shops, restaurants, and various types of retail stores. The platform enables users to manage sales and inventory, visualize sales analytics, and retain and engage customers, all via smartphone or tablet. Organizations can build their customer base, as well as send messages and e-receipts to customers and collect feedback.

With Loyverse’s POS system, users can modify orders by choosing add-ons to dishes, apply discounts to items or receipts, refund selected items, and track cash movement. Cafes and restaurants can use kitchen printers that inform cooking staff what to prepare from an order. Users can create, save and edit all orders, allowing customers to pay when it's convenient. Businesses can also provide the receipt to customers either by printing it on paper, sending it to their email inbox, or delivering it through the Loyalty Ocean app.

Inventory management features allow businesses to efficiently add thousands of items using CSV-spreadsheets to track the stock of products and their components. Users can receive daily notifications whenever stock is low, making sure that necessary items are ordered in time. Employee management features enable managers to track performance, manage access rights, view workload per hour, and more.

Loyverse’s customer loyaly program includes a points reward system that helps motivate customers to make recurring purchases. Managers can analyze visitor numbers per purchases, make notes about customers, collect feedback, and more. Sales analytics help businesses track trends and compare growth with previous days, weeks, and months. Users can determine the best-selling items, manage cash after a shift, and review receipts histories for each transaction, sale, refund, and discount.

A lot of features given the super-budget price

It's been very easy to use after some initial setup (which is difficult on every platform).

Pros
Loyverse is in a rare space offering a very low cost product in the POS/restaurant ops space. Even at the low price point, they offer a kitchen tablet software (alternative to a kitchen printer), a POS for taking orders, sending orders to the kitchen and running a bill. It even has inventory management with alerts when your inventory is running low. With their SumUp integration you can do everything you need for running your restaurant without having to sign any long term contracts, setting up credit card processing, etc.

Cons
Loyverse isn't a "bundled" product like a Toast or an UpServe so you'll need to get your own tablets/phones for your team to use (tablet for the kitchen, handheld devices for your servers) but that ends up saving you a LOT of money. There are a few "missing features" if you're comparing to other POS systems, namely staff management, online ordering, delivery management but these aren't concerns for a lot of businesses. For our business we ended up going with Toast for some of these missing features and the dedicated support, networking equipment, etc. but Loyverse was a very strong consideration for us. One of the key features we need as a tea house is a "forced modifier" where someone selects a package (i.e. high tea) and then needs to make some selections (which teas they want to have). This sort of workflow existed on Toast but not on Loyverse as of the time of our evaluation.

They are way too simple, so it´s good if you go out there to sell donut in a trolley (or coffee) but to run a restaurant I believe is not effective-.

Pros
It was easy to pay 10€ per month per employee

Cons
Too simplistic, at the end you pay way more than if you do a one time purchase of some equivalent software

An excellent free POS app. Easy to use and very intuitive.

Pros
I use Loyverse for my little bussines and it is perfect. It allows me to create my products, track my stock and send an email to my buyer with the receipts. Also, I like all the ecosystem they have. You cans watch stats about your sells and your gross profit, that's neat.

Cons
I will really like to be able to delete receipts without the need of write an email to customer service.

Pros
It's great to use. The support team is extremely attentive and quick on the answers. Committed to resolve. The dashboard app is very useful. Easy to split payments.

Cons
It does not have a desktop app or system that we could make sales. So you need a tablet or a phone for that. In a composite product the sales of all items of these products you will only verify in modifiers view and you will not have an inventory of them.
