As part of the deliveries feature, PHP POS allows you to complete sales with orders set aside for in-store pickup. This feature allows you to schedule a date and time for the pickup and keep your inventory up to date as you wait for a customer to get their order.
In-store pickups can only be created inside of a sale. Before you use the in-store pickup feature, it may be helpful to understand delivery categories and statuses so that you can organize your pickups and easily keep track of them.
