Shoe and Footwear Store Point of Sale

Shoe Store POS System Top Image 1080px 1

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.

One critical requirement for show stores is configurable or matric products.  Shoes often have a style number that covers all the different size, color width variants.  The top pos systems for show stores can support these types of variant products.  This allows the user to see the stock levels, prices and costs of all the different size, color, width variants in one matrix.  The best POS systems allow the user to either scan the barcode UPC label from the manufacturer or select the different size, color options from the front register.


Footwear and Shoe POS specific features in MicroBiz Cloud include:

  • Multi-dimensional inventory grid – to easily manage multi-attribute items such shoes and footwear with color, size and width or other attributes.
  • Layaways – collect deposits for top selling shoes while holding the item out of inventory.
  • Product images – so clerks can see a picture of the footwear product being rung-up at the register.
  • Markdown management – easily manage group markdowns, quantity pricing, multi-buy items, promotional pricing and bulk discounting.
  • Sales commissions – if you compensate employees for sales, sales by employee can be tracked and exported so that commissions can be calculated based on the sales amount or the gross profit or track commissions by employee to measure productivity.
  • Multiple shipping addresses – ship shoes and footwear accessories to any of the multiple shipping addresses maintained for each customer, or ship the same selection to multiple recipients.
  • Special orders/back orders – Allows you to track special order items (such as a shoe in a special or an out of stock show size), from the customer order to receiving, to inventory to the POS transaction.
  • Store credit – when accepting returns issue store credits that can be redeemed by  customer for future purchases.
  • Flexible product record fields – to track vendor, brand, style and other shoe and apparel specific item information.  You can also enter additional information as a product note that appears at the front register.
  • Repairs/Service department management – manage repairs and services transactions including a description of work to be performed (such as shoe repairs and cobbler work).
  • Service item history – Track and view service history of customer-owned footwear items checked in for service work.

Killer POS Feature for Shoe Stores: Matrix Products 


MicroBiz supports matrix products that come in different size, color and other variants (such as size, color and 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 works great for size runs that you reuse when you create products (US shoe sizes, EU shoe sizes, children’s shoes). This is helpful with shoes that have different size and color runs.  The three dimensional matrix cube allows you to see and edit open stock, committed stock, cost, price and reorder points for all matrix SKUs on one sheet.
