I was looking for an affordable POS software that would fit my small business needs. I can't afford the other POS software that cost significantly more. I knew if I spent less I would have to sacrifice on the quality. Luckily, PHP POS is both affordable and has great quality. Little hiccups here and there but overall I think it's great bargain. I recommend to other small businesses all the time.

Pros
Simple, not difficult. Looks professional. Doesn't look cheap. Support is quick.

Cons
I wish to edit numerous items at once. Not all options are available when you try to edit numerous items.

We've been using this system since November of 2015. Since we got our upgraded version, the POS has been working very good. Excellent support by Chris. The system is performing exactly how we intended it to work. Before we got this POS, we compared it against other POS systems. Many of them cost much more and not performing nearly as well as this POS. This is an excellent POS system and unbelievable value for the money spent. I highly highly recommend this system. Thank you Chris for all your support!

If you have some programminh skills you can choose for buying the source code to tweak you POS to every detail and your ecommerce. For a very fair and cheap price. Or you can host it on a cloud. Very good (almost perfect) software with decent customer care.

Pros
It has nearly all possible features for the POS. A lot of reporting. Add-ins or modifications cannbr asked at support which is very fast answering and if possible they implement it. The POS has an ecommerce (Woocommerce) which not to many other POS sellers have. A very big advantage

Best value for the money... best value even if they charged more

Review Source: Capterra

This system is amazing. The value you get for the cost of this system is hands down the best out there. You can spend 5 to 10K dollars and get suckered into NEC products that don't perform half as well. PHP POS provides so much above and beyond in the realm of customer service that any of the other people would charge you out the ear for. We have been using PHP POS as a hosted solution for a year and what little support we have needed has been immediately delivered. I know I am costing myself money here but they need to raise the price of this product. They are selling too cheaply.

Pros
This product does everything a small brick and mortar store needs. It handles them well. I run this system as my own hosted code so the team has created software changes just for me. You will never get that kind of customer service from another vendor.

Cons
There is very little about this system that is a negative. You are narrowly focused to a few Credit Card suppliers but that has expanded and I suspect will continue to do so. It does run in a browser so you do need to be sure to follow specific instructions and use firefox.. which is no big deal. I still use chrome and IE when I don't need the receipt printers.

I spent countless hours searching for a straight forward POS system that made economical sense. After coming across a favorable review I decided to give PHP a try. I have nothing bad to say about PHP. What a great, user friendly system. The customer service is second to none. Anytime I've had an issue it's been resolved in a very timely manner. I will continue to not only use but also promote this product as long as I'm in business. Thank you for making my life easier.

Review Source: Capterra

Our retail store needed a software solution from a standard register. After searching all products available, I found PHP POS. They're priced perfectly. Their product works on multiple operating systems integrates with hardware and merchants. Their support is excellent and their software is EXTREMELY easy to use. I hope that they make improvements I suggest as some of them are fairly business critical. But for the price, they were the right decision hands DOWN.

Pros
Price. Ease of use. Integration. Support.

Cons
They need to add age verification. Many, many retailers these days have age restricted items. If you don't have verification, you're immediately eliminated or have to add something else which adds unnecessary cost.

Review Source: Capterra

We are a small cooperative grocery store all run by volunteers. I am continually amazed at the functionality of this package and it is priced at a fraction of other POS systems. Most of all, the dedication of the owner, Chris Muench is amazing. I have called for support at all times of day and night, including weekends, and he is always there, cheerfully talking us through the solutions. We literally could not have grown this far without this software.

Pros
it is easy to use, stable, and gets the job done. It has way more functionality than we are using. Chris is always there for us and has helped us understand many of the intricacies. The low price is amazing. We could not have afforded the other products on the market.

Cons
The things we find lacking are the ability to integrate with a scale for the products that need to be weighed and a good "how to" manual so that we can easily learn how to use all of the functions that the software can perform.

Acessibility from anywhere in the world with an internet connection. I can check on my Items, my employees and see reports of best selling items and so on... Also there is a neat feature that alerts a user to items that are running low. All in all it is a great software, just a bit costly compared now compared to when I first signed up. the price is up by 100% and im not including the extra features like ecommerce support.

Pros
The ability to login anywhere I have access to the internet. I installed the manual version and uploaded it to my web server where I control everything.

Cons
The new pricing is a bit ridiculous to me, Year and every year the price seems to go up.

Critique of PHP

Reviewed 2016-11-11
Review Source: Capterra

I manage a small Christian book store that operates on a small budget so we chose PHP for our point of sale program. We originally had issues with slow responses if we tried to record multiple purchases on one transaction. We overcame that by installing the program on the hard drive. My greatest problem now is printing receipts. Originally the receipt printer printed from margin to margin but there has been a program change and now I cannot get the printer to print to the left margin. I have about a half inch margin which creates extra long receipts. Tech support tried to help me with this problem but were unsuccessful. I also wish I could add fields in the item description list to fit our needs. All in all the program works fine and is a good value.

Pros
The price

Cons
The printer issues and slow response to entries.

Does a poor job of inventory management when using product bundles, e.g. it doesn't adjust the inventory of the individual products in a bundle. The new price is rather steep.

We use the software for costing and inventory management since we are an online shop. While changing hardware, I couldn't figure out how to bring over the data. The customer service I received was unbelievably great going above and beyond. Using the software is fairly straight forward. There are a couple of annoying bugs but the next version promises to fix that. Comparing the value for the price, this is a good buy. I recommend this product.

Pros
Ease of use. Customer service.

Cons
Days to expiry: Having to manually count the number of days leading to the expiry date. I would like to be able to enter the expiry date stated on products and have the software calculate the number of days so that we can run a report listing products expiring in x days. Kits: When creating a kit, the individual product cost appear, but afterwards when looking at a kit, the product costs are hidden making modifying a kit time consuming.

We've been using PHP POS for about 3-4 years now and love it. It was reasonably priced and it had all the functions and features we needed. Have never had any problems with it and even when we upgraded to Windows 10 they're tech support was quick with a fix and we were up and running again within a day. Hope to keep using PHP POS for many more years.

Pros
Price for what you get, good support. Reliabble software.

Cons
Would like more customization of fields (chance names and be able to delete extra fields we don't need when adding items...) We use it as for our consignment shop for artists, so it works but if we could customize it, it would make it even easier for volunteers to use too.

Start using PHP Point Of Sales in my on computer repairs business, been a happy user for most of the time due to the software functionality, stable and easy to use. Also it is on the affordable pricing; as a small business , software pricing is very important. Along these year had been introduce PHPPOS to client, they purchased it and we deploy it for them. Can see PHPPOS is growing into a mature software, our repair business had been grow together with different version of PHPPOS although we are not actively in the forum.

Pros
simple, easy; straight to the point. that is the beauty for a small business usage no fancy not necessary function

Cons
no function of click/drag an item into to create a bundle and just display a final price instead of pre-create a package first then start sell it. Quotation/ Estimate never show as Quotation, it still show as Sales Receipt
