Shoe and Footwear Store Point of Sale
Shoe stores sell many different types of footwear – boots, women’s shoes, men’s shoes, athletic shoes, custom shoes, kids shoes, work shoes, etc. Shoe stores not only sell shoes, but also sell a wide range of shoe accessories and other services (such as shoe repair). The best shoe store POS systems are able to ring up retail sales, tightly manage inventory and operate a repairs and services department. Given the very high number of SKUs, attributes (from different size, color, style and widths), the support of matrix products is essential to be a top shoe store point of sale software application. The high turnover and seasonality of footwear requires robust reporting – and the smart buying and pricing tools.

Killer POS Feature for Shoe Stores: Matrix Products
MicroBiz supports matrix products that come in different size, color and other variants (such as shoe width). Matrix’s can contain one, two or three attributes. You can set-up reusable size or color attribute lists to speed up the creation of matrix products. This is helpful with shoes that have different size and color runs.
