Inventory Location Set Up



Floor Plan



  Examples of Inventory locations are “warehouse”, “zone”, “shelf’, “bin” etc, where products are stored. In some cases, the store can create logical locations like “sales” or “main”.  ORO POS Inventory plugin identifies location by unique name or Id.  


ORO POS Inventory plugin creates a default location named “Store” for IN and OUT of the product. When a product is purchased, if not specified, they are added to the default IN location. In the same manner, when a product is sold, POS will deduct them from the default OUT location.
   You can edit create different new locations and set them as the default locations. In some cases there are two different locations for IN and OUT.

To add a inventory location visit back office–> inventory–> locations


  1. Click on New to add a location.

  2. Name the new location and insert other pieces of information about the location.
  3. Choose the parent location. The location where inventories will receive from.
