Bicycle Store Point of Sale

Bicycle shop POS or bike store POS systems support the sale of both bicycles and accessories, and they also  enable a bike shop owner to buy, special order, rent, or repair bicycles and offer additional services. The retail space of the shop usually dictates the size of the inventory, and it can range from a small storefront with a few demo bikes to large warehouse stores stocking a wide selection of bikes, bike parts, accessories. Some bikes are delivered complete while other are assembles in the shop. As a result, the bicycle retailers need detailed inventory tracking capabilities and the ability to easily search for inventoried parts and supplies.

Bicycle Store POS specific features in MicroBiz Cloud include:

  • Service department management – allows you to efficiently manage a service department – you can bill by hour or by job, as well as bill for parts.
  • Multi-dimensional records – you can manage multiple bikes within a single customer record – so you can separately track multiple bikes owned by an individual or family, maintain a separate service record for each one of their bikes.
  • Layaways – collect deposits while holding the item out of inventory.
