What can't be sold at a mobile POS:
  • Digital products, dropshipping products, or product subscriptions  
  • Products set to be fulfilled by a custom fulfillment service

To accept credit card payments, you need to do one or both of the following:

Step 2 | Add items to the cart

Start by adding the relevant store products to the cart. You can also add a charge of a specific amount of money in addition to (or instead of) your store products. If you also use Wix Bookings on your site, you can add bookings services in addition to other items.

  • In the Cart, you can:
    • Tap an item to remove it or change the quantity.
    • Tap the More Actions icon  and then Clear Cart to remove all items. 
  • Want to sell only certain items at a point of sale? Create a POS category. Then, when making a sale, save time by selecting from product in that category.

Step 3 | (Optional) Add a discount or redeem a coupon

You can offer customers a price reduction in 2 ways. If you created coupons, you can allow customers to redeem a coupon at checkout. Alternatively, you can manually enter any discount percentage you choose. 
You cannot add a discount and apply a coupon to the same sale.

To add a discount or coupon:

  • Select a price reduction option:
    • Let a customer redeem a coupon:
      1. Tap Redeem a Coupon.
      2. Enter the code or tap Choose from the coupon list, select it, and tap Done.
      3. Tap Apply.
    • Add a Discount: 
      1. Select a discount option:
        • Percentage discount:
          1. Tap %.
          2. Enter the percentage (e.g. 10% discount).
          3. Tap Apply.
        • Price discount:
          1. Tap $.
          2. Enter the amount you want to take off the total price. (e.g. $10 discount).
          3. Tap Apply. 

Step 4 | (Optional) Add a customer

You can assign an existing customer to the sale or add a new one.
When you add a new customer, you can also send the customer an email invitation to join your site. 

To add a customer:

  1. Tap the More Actions icon  in the top right corner.
  2. Select Add Customer.
  3. Add a customer:
    • Select an existing customer.
    • Tap +Add New Contact to enter the new customer's details, then tap Save.

Step 5 | Process payment

Now you can proceed to checkout and select how you want to be paid.

To process payment for the order:

  1. Tap Charge.
  2. Select cash or the credit card payment option you set up:

Step 6 | (Optional) Send a receipt

You can optionally send your customer a receipt by email or text message. Note that the receipt text and design cannot be customized. 
Sending an invoice after the sale:
To send a new customer an invoice after the sale, you must first send an email receipt. 

To send a receipt:

  1. Tap Send Receipt.
  2. Select an option:
    • Email a receipt:
      1. Tap Email receipt.
      2. Enter the customer's email address.
        Note: Email addresses are needed if you want to generate an invoice later. 
      3. Enter the customer's name. 
      4. Tap Send Receipt.
    • Send a text receipt (US & Canada only):
      1. Tap Text receipt.
      2. Enter the phone number.
      3. Tap Text Receipt.  
You can send (or resend) a receipt later from the Orders tab by selecting the order, tapping the More Actions icon  at the top right, and selecting Send email receipt.
