I am looking for a way to save an order on the POS screen and accept payment later. This makes business sense for restaurants or bars that have many waiters who key in their orders hout taking payments. There is usually one cashier who then collects payments against the created orders. Could anyone assist me with any pointers on how I can achieve this
There is potentially a module for this as this is a very much desired request. https://github.com/odoo/odoo/issues/4231
If I don't find it satisfactory, then I will start developing my own. Also check Odoo 9 and see if this is maybe something that is being worked on, as that code should easily be ported.. It only needs a slight change to the API code, to allow another parameter, that defines to add a payment or not.
I have so far added the button on the POS Screen. Any idea how I can post the current order object to server without firing the payment procedure? The problem with invoicing is that it marks the order as paid even before payment is received against the invoice. Also, many bar customers are walk in customers, meaning that the business may not have their records.
