The new version has some teething issues, but that's to be expected in the world of Wordpress. I have rolled back to the old version on my live site whilst the problems are ironed out, but from what I've seen I'm confident it's going to be worth the wait. I did a lot of research when looking for a POS for my existing WC site, and nearly overlooked this one because it was free. But I'm glad tried it. It does everything you want without asking for subscriptions or a percentage of your sales - I bought the pro version for the few extra features, and it is a bargain. I can't believe that people are moaning about the new version having a couple of issues. Ignore them and try it for yourself.

This was an amazing plugin, very fast, simple and helpful to check on inventory for each variation prior to sell in person. Now its slow, doesn't work ok (several issues with completing the sale) and stock for variations it's not longer on display. We will be happy to pay for pro version if it works like the previous version.

We have updated to version 1.0.2 but we don't like it. There are problems with variation products. It is very slow and does not allow adding to the shopping cart. Also, the cell phone is lousy. Please, I have paid PRO version and I need to go back to the previous version urgently.

Tried using this but seems to have a major issue with loading products that haven't been downloaded locally yet, having a large product database seems to be a problem.
