SQLite Issue and workaround

While working on some of the new features in POS Pizza v9, we uncovered an issue with SQLite where it returns erroneous data in some rare instances where a BETWEEN clause is used. There were a couple of reports in POSPizza v8 where these were used, so we replaced them with equivalent statements whic...

POS Pizza 9

POS Pizza v9 will be going into beta testing soon, and an official release will follow. Right now there is no official release date set, but my best guess (which is subject to change) would be sometime in March, or possibly April of this year.

Re: Fiserv or Stax Supported - CC Processing

Our Generic PAX integration will work with any processor as long as they can support the PAX S300, or PAX A35 terminals. They would configure the terminal to work with their processing service, and set it to receive standard TCP/IP communication (not HTTP/S) from the POS. The PAX terminal would then...

Re: Cash Discount for orders over a set amount

The discounts don't have a threshold amount. They are always applied whenever they are selected for a given order. You would need to first set a 5% discount, and then manually apply it to any order that is over $25. --- We are currently working on POS Pizza v9, which should be available sometime nex...

Re: Delivery Stuck in Transit

You could change the system time, or you can modify the database file using an SQL editor. The system time will need to be changed at the server, and only that station should open the app, complete the delivery, then immediately exit, and then change the time back. If you use an SQL editor, change t...

Re: "Hot" Database Copy Possible?

I do have a question regarding what happens during a hot copy when data corruption (may) occur. Will your utility log an error in that case? The tool will only log errors that it is aware of. If it can successfully read a block of data, and then write that block to the new file, then as far as it i...

You may want to consider backing up to a NAS. This will have an up-front cost to it, but it's a good way for on-site backups.

The server can't do this, because it would need to disconnect everyone, then make a backup. This would cause constant "lags" for the clients. A backup app that can copy files which are "in-use" would be a better solution. Many backup apps can copy open files, since they copy in &...

The stand-alone online ordering cannot add a surcharge, since it doesn't handle the actual card payment. The customer is redirected off-site for this.
