POS is a Gem subject to a monthly fee that you can activate from the Holded Store. It is composed of a section on the platform, for stores and inventory management, and an application for iOS or Android tablets for daily usage in a physical store. Learn more about POS in this section.

In Holded, POS is the system that allows you to manage stores, registers, products and warehouses in order to perform a sale in your physical stores.

By activating the POS Gem, you will automatically have the right to manage multiple warehouses, while if what you need is an advanced management of your inventory with, for example, products with batches, among other things, you will need to activate the paid Gem Inventory Pro.
