Running a book store requires a robust and flexible inventory system that most point of sale systems simply can’t handle. Books come in all kinds of editions and variations, especially if you deal in specialty books or graphic novels. Every cover art variant, edition, and whether a book is a hardcover or paperback needs to be tracked accurately to keep your customers happy!
PHP POS is different from the average point of sale system in that it contains features specific to the needs of book stores in addition to all the standard bells and whistles. Through our work with customers, we’ve identified the features you really need to keep your book store thriving:
PHP POS allows you to create inventory for every book and possible variation of it that you may carry. Books can also easily be bundled into groups or with merchandise as item kits to make custom products for anything your store needs.
Inventory tracking with PHP POS is a breeze and notifications can be set up for reorder points and low inventory so that you never find yourself without what your customers need!
We know that book stores rely on repeat business, this is why PHP POS features a robust and easy to use customer loyalty program built into our platform! Reward customers for coming back to your store with fantastic discounts with no extra work for your employees!
Everyone loves getting a gift card to their favorite store, and with PHP POS you can easily make digital or create physical gift cards to sell to your customers!
Few businesses are entirely in store these days, which is why PHP POS offers easy ecommerce integrations. PHP POS integrates seamlessly with Shopify and WooCommerce to allow you to keep your inventory and analytics in one easy to use place!
PHP POS has partnered with coreCLEAR to offer seamless credit card processing integration at an amazing discount to you. You can easily sign up for coreCLEAR here, and then we’ll contact you about getting your store set up with minimum fuss.

Sales tax can be tricky, especially for businesses with stores in multiple locations. PHP POS allows you to customize sales taxes for different groups and types of items so that you can fine tune what things show up as requiring tax or not during checkout. PHP POS also offers full integration with Taxjar for US customers, an application that will help you set up the correct tax rules for all your products and services.
The features above aren’t the end of what PHP POS offers. PHP POS is a dynamic software that can grow with your business.
