Sporting Goods Store Point of Sale

Sporting Goods store POS systems support retailers that derive their profits from the sales of sporting equipment and accessories. While some big sporting good stores and chains carry a wide range items for different sporting categories, smaller stores may specialize in one sporting category. To compete, specialty sporting goods retailers need to deliver the expertise and personalized service of a specialty merchant along with a deeper selection of merchandise. As a result, sporting goods stores manage a diverse range of inventory items – from equipment to footwear to apparel to accessories. Some have a service component or barter used equipment.

Sporting Goods Store POS specific features in MicroBiz Cloud include:

  • Layaways – collect deposits while holding the item out of inventory.
  • Multi-dimensional inventory grid – to easily manage multi-attribute items such sports apparel and footwear with color, size, style and/or width or other attributes.
  • Product images – so clerks can see a picture of the 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 – can be calculated for each item based on the sales amount or the gross profit and track commissions by employee to measure productivity.
  • Price quotes – generate and print sales price quotes and hold tickets (great for team sales).
  • Service department management – allows you to efficiently manage a service department – you can bill by hour or by job, as well as bill for services like stringing tennis rackets.
  • Special orders/back orders – Allows you to track special order items (such as a specialized gear or apparel), from the customer order to receiving, to inventory to the POS transaction.
  • Group pricing or discounts – based on customer level or group.
  • Flexible product record fields – to track season, team, style and other sporting goods and apparel specific item information.
