Ecwid for POS 2016


In June 2014 Arthur Belostotsky mentioned this as a solution:

Ecwid and POS
One of the most remarkable Ecwid feature is that at the same time you can have your store on the website, in Facebook and use it as POS at your physical store. Everything will be synchronized automatically.

2. You can use Ecwid storefront to create orders like a customer.
To use this feature you should create an offline payment method at your Ecwid Control Panel.
After that you’ll be able to manage your sales simply by “buying” items from your store on behalf of customer. An order will be placed at your control panel, and item quantity will be reduced.
This method also gives you the ability to enter information about your customers that may be helpful in the future.


This sounds like a great, cost-effective solution for what we're doing now in a United States location with our not for profit. I just have to wonder if this creates any PCI compliance issues.

Thanks,
Mike

Hello Mike,

If you expect to collect customers’ credit cards somehow and then use them to place orders, this is what we don’t recommend doing at all. We explained all this in this thread: https://www.ecwid.com/forums/showthread.php?t=25181
If you use an offline payment method to create orders, it won’t require any PCI compliance since this process won’t involve any sensitive data like credit cards. Likewise with the Ecwid mobile app, which was described by Arthur in that post. The mobile app can also be connected to PayPal Here - in that rate you can charge your customers’s cards on the spot. The app will function as POS terminal, and the card is processed by PayPal. The data in every case is processed securely.


Speaking of POS solutions, besides PayPal Here Ecwid is integrated with
Square - https://help.ecwid.com/customer/port...387-square-pos
Clover - https://help.ecwid.com/customer/port...p-installation
Vend - https://help.ecwid.com/customer/portal/articles/2043370
iZettle - https://www.ecwid.com/blog/now-accep...and-ecwid.html

If you have any additional questions, please feel free to ask.
