POS Only Products

Products can be hidden in your online store or at the point of sale using the POS visibility setting.

There may be situations where you need to hide a product from either your Online store or your POS. With WooCommerce POS this can be achieved using the POS Visibility setting on the product edit page.

Enabling POS Only Products

POS Only Products is not enabled by default. To enable POS Only Products go to WP Admin > POS > Settings > General

Enable POS Only Products

Enabling POS only products will require an extra database lookup and therefore incur an small performance hit. If you do not use POS Only Products it is recommended you leave this option disabled.
