Using QB Online as POS

I've been using QB online for a short time and still have alot to own.  We run a small business.  We have a storefront that is open 4 days per month.  This is at a large market that fortunately provides us walk in business at a great volume which generates sales in the store.  It also provides us the opportunity to book orders which we fill and ship out through the month after the 4 days are over.  

My question is this:

During the 4 days of opening, i would like to use the Sales Receipt portion of QB Online as a POS. Entering each transaction as a customer buys items in the store.  It would track my income during that time and inventory.  Are there any drawbacks to using this a POS?   It would keep me from having to purchase a seperate POS.  

Thank you for your help!!

Hi Farmhousecustom,

 

I'd like to help you to find a solution. Can you let me know if you're using QuickBooks Payments? Also, do you plan on using a mobile device for this? I'll be waiting to hear back from you.

Hi Dewayne!  Thank you so much for offering to help!  I use a Square reader as my payment device.  It's not connected into Quickbooks, just through my cell phone.

I am looking into using my laptop or even a desktop at my store this next month.  I prefer to do that over mobile for Quickbooks.

Square does have an app that works with QuickBooks Online and automatically imports your sales data. That could save you a lot of time. You can find the app here: https://apps.intuit.com/app-b7qjt5yrgg
