Configure multiple shops in OpenERP Point of Sale


How to configure multiple shops when we are dealing with OpenERP Point of Sale.

We may have multiple shops with single warehouse in such case we can have only one warehouse to manage all shops.
But sometimes its also require to manage stock per shop, in such case we can have multiple shops with multiple warehouses. So each warehouse will be used to manage shop wise stock entries.

Stock management configuration with the help of shop, warehouse and Point of Sale is explained in this blog.

We will start with one by one screens displayed below. We will assume that Sales, Point of Sale, Warehouse modules are installed and Database with demo data are installed.

Here in below screen we can see that first of all, we have to eneble two options: Pricelist, Multiple shops. And just click on Apply button on the top.

Enable Shop, Pricelist options

Now we will create new shop with new warehouse and pricelist applied as displayed in below screen.

Now we can see, we have 2 shops configured. We will consider one is for Admin and another is for Demo user.

OpenERP Shop list

We can see in this screen, we have select Shop 1 which we have created and we have created new Point of Sale. So once we will save this, we will have two Point of Sale, one is Main (Default one) and second, we just created Shop 1.

Now lets turn to User Form. We have to assign this both Point of Sale shop to different users. Please find in below screen. We have assigned “Main” to Admin, and “Shop1” to Demo User. So to access different shop, both user will select their own shop only.

We have two Point of Sale in this list. We will use with referenced user. We can restrict here that particular user can use his own shop only.

So after this much configuration, we can login to different users and we can operate Point of Sale so stock will be managed individually.
Few points to be remember:
– Assign proper access rights to the users.
– We can use different Pricelist for different shop to make rate different.

  1. Hello,
    What about multiple shops + multiple warehouses + multiple POS but with same products ?

    I mean : each POS are selling the same products but each shop should manage his own stock.

    Is it mandatory to duplicate the products for each POS or can we make only one set of products, but decrement only own shop’s stock without decrementing other stocks when a sale is performed?

    Regards

  2. I haven’t found any relevant solution for now, so I’m making a module that copies all procuts for each company. But for now it’s still Under construction. There are lot of problems.

    For example, when you copy a product, OpenERP creates a new Template. But the Template inherits data from the Template of the original product.

    I’m still at work ….

  3. Hi all,

    I finally go another way : OpenERP well knows how to use multi POS + multi Warehouse + multi shops with one set of products for each company without having to duplicate them.

    just by using stock locations.

    regards

  4. thank you so much for sharing.
    i have a question if you don’t mind.
    to restrict user access, you specify “Default Point of Sale” for specific users.
    but how about specific user with specific stock in multiple stock location.
    any help would be appreciated.

  6. just configure warehouse – locaion in and location out – and all it’s related location you can also assign users to specific location . you have to add rule for warehouse to allow each user see their product quantity on specific location even we use the same product .

  7. I have a similar requirement and the latest Odoo doesn’t seem to have a concept of shop. Can you please let me know how we can configure in the latest odoo ?

    Can someone please let me know how shops with their own warehouses are handled in latest odoo. My requirement is to have one central kitchen with a warehouse and multiple outlets with their own warehouses.

    Can you please let me know how this needs to be configured in the latest odoo ?

  9. The concept of shops seems to have been removed in the latest odoo.
