This point of sale system is designed in PHP computer programming language, with usage of hypertext markup language (HTML) coding for customisation. Required components include a Windows or Apache Linux web server which supports PHP 4.3 or higher and also, a MySQL database server.

Instructions

  1. 1

    Add your customer's address and phone number on your receipts. You can keep a copy of this information so that you may retrieve it, if necessary, at a later date. Use HTML coding in your PHP Point of Sale program to change the receipt, adding lines for the customer's address and phone number.

    Create barcodes to identify customers or items in your inventory. Select the "Items" button in the toolbar found at the top of the screen. Then select the "Items Barcode" link, according to phppointofsale.com. If you use either a Microsoft XP, 2002 or 2003 operating system, you can select "Tools", then "Letters and Mailings" followed by "Envelopes and Labels." When a pop-up window appears, click "Labels", select a label template and click "New Document." End by copying the barcode from the PHP point of sale image and pasting it to the Word label template.

    Apply discounts when a purchase is made. You can create discounts for either individual sale items or the entire shopping trolley. Select the "Unit Price" field next to a sale item, then enter a numerical value, from 1 to 99, in the "Global Sale Discount" field.
