Adding Categories & Products

Adding Categories

The software comes with some predefined categories that you can use (these can be seen in the image below). However,  if you do not wish to use these then you can click the “Deactivate Category” button.

To edit your categories, login to the back office of the software, and on the left hand menu navigate to “PRODUCTS” and then “Categories“. From here you can add, edit, or remove as many categories to suit you.

Note: Keep Category names to less than 14 characters to ensure they fit on the button correctly.

Each category also come with it’s own “Custom” product built in. This means that when you are selecting your products for a sale on the FrogPOS, you can use the “Custom” button for any miscellaneous or bespoke products you may have and enter it’s value. This is especially helpful when adding orders as you can also add in a product description with any requests your customer may have.

Adding Products

To add a product, login to the back office and using the left hand menu, navigate to “PRODUCTS” and then select “Products” from the sub-menu.  On the right hand side click the “Add Product” button and a screen will appear as shown below.

When adding products you have three options:

  • Add a single price to your product
  • Add multiple prices to your product
  • Add your product without a price.

  1. Enter a product name, example “Summer Bouquet”
  2. Add a product image (optional)
  3. Enter a single price, example £30.00
  4. Enter a description for your product (optional)
  5. Finally, tick the category boxes at the bottom where you want your product to appear. Example, if a Summer Bouquet then click “Bouquets” category and click “Save”

Adding a product with multiple prices

  1. Enter a product name, example “Summer Bouquet”
  2. Add a product image (optional)
  3. Click “Add Option” and another box will appear on the right:

    2. Enter a price for your option, example £25.00, and then click “Save Option”
