Oliver POS vs. YITH POS

It’s time for another POS battle! Next in line is a comparison between YITH POS and Oliver POS, two leading WooCommerce POS plugins that are fairly new to the scene. Let’s weigh out the pros and cons of each point of sale software, and see how they compare. 

Installation Process

Oliver POS 

Pros

  • Installation is a piece of cake! Install, Activate, and Launch your POS. 

YITH

Cons

  • Installation requires purchase of their annual subscription, and requires an activation license for your plugin. 

The YITH Installation process is a little bit more involved than the Oliver POS installation. You can install Oliver POS in a few clicks, whereas YITH not only requires purchasing the POS but activating your license as well.

Interface 

YITH

Pros

  • Simple and intuitive
  • Products displayed neatly in tile form
  • Has tabs for featured and sale products
  • Product Variations are easy to find
  • Easy to return to WooCommerce
  • Customizable discounts, fees, and shipping
  • Available on a multitude of different devices
  • Allows you to add products directly on register
  • Menu that offers daily profits, order history, and close cash
  • Easy to return to WooCommerce
  • Offered in multiple languages

Cons

  • The option to park sale does not save the sale
  • No customer list, only search bar
  • No customer purchase history or notes
  • Refunds are not an option
  • Integrated Payments available only with the purchase of a plugin
  • Card payment allows you to add higher price than the amount tendered

Oliver POS

Pros

  • Intuitive layout
  • Customizable tiles for product organization
  • Shop settings and reports all available on Oliver Hub and Register
  • Customizable discounts, additional fees, and taxes
  • Customer history and notes 
  • Ability to change product inventory and customer information
  • Available on multiple devices and browsers
  • Offers split payments
  • Offers integrated payments
  • Offers refunds
  • Menu that brings you to Activity View or Customer View
  • Easy to return to WooCommerce
  • Offered in multiple languages

Cons

  • Does not offer multiple tax rates with free plan
  • Cannot add new products on the register

Both POS interfaces are similarly intuitive and simple, and both feature tiles for organization. Oliver POS’s interface is a little bit more customizable, however YITH POS’ does allow for some customization. With Oliver POS, you can keep track of your customers with customer notes and purchase history, as well as give refunds. YITH POS does not offer these features, however, it does allow you to add new products directly onto the register–a feature Oliver POS does not offer.

Reports

YITH

Pros

  • Includes on the register order history and daily profits
  • In the backend of WooCommerce, offers an abundance of reports, including location, register, cashier, and payment reports.
  • Date range is customizable.

Oliver POS

Pros

  • The free plan includes weekly, daily, and hourly reports, and includes data on tax, discounts, store credit, net sales, and more. 
  • Advanced plans come with in-depth data, including location, product, and employee reports.
  • Date range is customizable.

YITH POS and Oliver POS’ reports are arguably on par–the only downside to reports on Oliver POS is that some of the more in-depth reports are only available with a paid subscription–however, since YITH POS only offers paid subscriptions and does not offer a free plan as Oliver POS, it is hardly a con.

Integration with WooCommerce

YITH 

Pros

  • Automatically pulls customers, products, and taxes from your online shop
  • Keeps your POS and your online store synced automatically
  • WooCommerce will sync new products added on register

Oliver POS

Pros

  • Automatically pulls customers, products, and taxes from your online shop
  • Keeps your POS and your online store synced automatically

Cons

  • Does not allow you to add new products directly on the register

Adaptability

YITH

Pros

  • It offers customization in its custom discounts and fees.
  • Offers POS only products
  • Offers customizable receipts
  • Customizable fees, discounts, and shipping
  • Allows you to customize the colors of your POS register
  • Other custom values, such as pre-set fees and discounts, login page, login logo, and more.
  • Offers a variety of plugins go along with its POS

Cons

  • Does not offer much integration with external plugins

Oliver POS

Pros

  • Customizable features include product organization, taxes, shipping, fees, discounts, reports, customer information, and more.
  • Designed for advanced integration, so it can integrate any number of extensions, add-ons, or apps to create personalized POS software.
  • Offers multiple languages
  • Customizable receipts

YITH POS is one of the more customizable POS software we’ve come across, besides Oliver POS. It’s custom discounts and fees, customizable receipts, along with the ability to choose your interface colors, and it’s extension selection of plugins, make it a compelling competitor for Oliver POS. However, YITH POS does not offer customizable product tiles, and it does not boast custom development or external integration. While you may choose from other YITH plugins to integrate with your POS, Oliver POS can integrate with any plugin, extension, or app, and was designed for custom development to make the possibilities for customization limitless.

Support

YITH

Pros

Cons

  • While their Help Centre is extensive, there seems to be little information on the subject of the POS.

Oliver POS 

Pros

Performance for Cost

YITH

Pros

  • Very affordable
  • Comes with several amazing features, including limitless locations and registers
  • Has a 30 day money back guarantee
  • Comes with 3 plans based on number of websites

Cons

  • There is no free plan
  • There is no free trial, only a live demo 
  • Offers only annual plan, no monthly subscriptions
  • Only extra features with high priced plans are the number of websites

Oliver POS 

Pros

Cons

  • More costly than WCPOS
  • Offers only one website 

Both POS software are arguably matched when it comes to performance for cost. While YITH POS may be slightly less expensive than Oliver POS’ paid subscription, YITH POS does not offer any kind of free trial or free plan. 

Conclusion

Both software offer excellent adaptability, integration with WooCommerce, in-depth reports, and both offer extensive features for an affordable price. While YITH’s prices are more affordable than Oliver POS’s paid plans, YITH does not offer a free option. Similarly, while YITH POS’ adaptability surpasses most other POS systems we’ve encountered, it is still no match for Oliver POS.
