LEGO is a type of construction toy from The LEGO Group company based in Denmark. The LEGO bricks are colourful plastic building blocks that can be joined together easily to make a tower, house, and more. They are the most popular building construction toy in the world.
The company was started by Ole Kirk Christiansen, a Danish toy maker, in 1935. Christiansen made wooden toys for children. He made and sold his first plastic LEGO sets in the 1940s.
Since then, the LEGO brand has become very popular and is known and loved by people around the world kids and adults alike.
LEGO bricks come in many shapes, sizes, and colours. There are wheels, car screens, and plants. LEGO bricks can be joined together in many ways. Vehicles, buildings, and even robots can all be built with LEGO bricks.
There are many Lego selling toy shops in Oisterwijk area, but BrickFever is the most popular among the buyers. Although it is not an official Lego store, yet it is by far the more extensive, cheaper, and accessible than any brand store.
The BrickFever shop is open for the customers from 9 AM to 5 PM and closed on Thursdays and Sundays. Kids can come, have fun, play around and find a huge collection of Lego toys.
Besides the physical store, BrickFever runs an online store for the customers to shop anytime, anywhere. The customers can get free shipping on orders of € 100, make secure payments via. iDeal, PayPal, and Credit Card.
If a customer places an order before 4 PM, the same day shipment is available. Further, it offers the store-pickup option to collect the order immediately from the physical shop at Oisterwijk.
Store views are usually available to show the store in different languages, although they can be used for other purposes, as well. Customers use the language chooser in the header to change the store view.
Raymond Verhoeven manages BrickFever, he was looking to set up a Nederlands POS (point of sales system) for his shop. Currently, there are many types of POS systems available in the market- Terminal POS, Mobile POS, Online/Web POS, Self-Service Kiosk POS.
Since the BrickFever already runs an online shop, Web/Online POS made sense, as this would easily integrate the online and offline stores. Also, unlike Terminal POS, you don’t require any new hardware or software application to manage the POS system.
Web-based POS or Online POS is the best solution for any type of small retail businesses. As it doesn’t require a complex set of hardware or software installation, as it simply runs on any web browser. Such as – Chrome, FireFox, Safari, Edge, Opera.
The Web-POS system directly connects with the cloud server and synchronizes all the retail store information – sales order, inventory, customers, with an online store. Moreover, if a network is unable, Web POS works offline and saves data on local storage.
Right now BrickFever is using Webkul’s POS System for Magento 2. This is a Web-based Cloud POS solution that easily connects with your existing Magento store and syncs all the data on a real-time basis.
Now, the retail store owners, don’t need to purchase any new hardware or invest huge resources to work on Web POS. You can use your existing desktop computer, laptop, tablet, iPad and even connect it to other peripheral devices:
There are a number of ways through which the cashier can add items to the POS cart. Either, the cashier can search by name, or enter SKU, or scan a barcode label, or simply click on the product image on the screen. Webkul POS works with both touch-enabled and non-touch screen devices.
In Webkul Web POS System, the cashier has an option to offer a custom discount on an item. This discount can be either a per cent value or any fixed amount.
Offering discounts and running promotions are great to lure customers and keep the business coming. With the Webkul POS custom discount feature, the cashier has two ways to offer discounts. Either give a custom discount while adding items or apply a discount coupon at the checkout.
With Magento 2.3 release update, it let merchants manage MSI (multiple source inventory). With MSI, the store owners are able to configure inventory for a single source and multiple sources. Merchants can assign and map stock to different sources, aggregate saleable quantity, and track deductions.
Webkul’s POS System works with Magento 2.3 MSI feature. If you are managing multiple physical stores or outlets, you can manage stock, select a source, and assign products.
Since BrickFever shop is only available at Oisterwijk, therefore it didn’t require MSI function. Due to this Raymond needed the Same Source selection option for the webshop and Nederlands POS system. Webkul did some changes as per BrickFever shop requirements and configured the POS system.
While accepting payment from the customer, the cashier can accept cash or do credit/debit card swipe. Additionally, split payment also works, where a part of the amount is received in cash and rest is paid via. card swipe.
The cashier can mention the split payment received details and enter the last four digits for the card for record-keeping. In the cart, the cashier can view the tax calculation, discount, quantity and total amount to receive.
Apart from Web POS, Webkul offers Native POS as well, where you get fully native apps for Android and iOS. You don’t need to buy an expensive Nederlands POS machine for your business. Webkul’s Web POS or Native POS works best for any type of business from any location.
