How to manage payments and receipts in apparel and clothing store
Apparel stores see significant footfalls because people frequently buy clothing items. It means stores keep getting the inventory from manufacturers or other sources. Such a continuous flow of items means more frequent exchange of money.
Making payments to suppliers and receiving payments from customers becomes a continuous affair. And the added responsibility is keeping the transactions secure, faster, and smoother for the parties involved. All this is possible with an effective POS system.

• Loyalty cards – You can also create a loyalty program for your loyal customers. Add reward points whenever they buy something from the store. They can use these reward points later as a form of payment in your store.
Apply discounts and promotional offers
If you are running a promotional offer or discount, you can feed it into the POS system. You can use it on every item individually or in a product category. When selecting the clothing item, just click if the discount or offer applies; it is added directly to the cost.
Manage refunds and exchanges
An apparel store experiences many requests for clothing returns or exchanges for different sizes or colors. You can add this feature in your POS system to manage the refund of money to customers or to pay/receive the difference in the amount in case of exchange. Such a feature attracts customers, as they know even one wrong purchase would not result in losses.
Besides the payments and receipts-related processes, it also smoothens your inventory management. You can sort products by different factors such as size, color, brand, or material. You can even collect data on your annual sales and develop insights. You can find out what sells the most in summer or the festival season.
Furthermore, you can control user permissions to give access to employees based on their roles and responsibilities. You can integrate it with printers, cash drawers, and barcode scanners to streamline your processes further.
