You can now add barcodes to items, then print on Avery or Dymo
labels. Checkout 3 has a brand new interface to set up product
variations like sizes and colors. The number of definable product
properties is limitless, according to the folks at Werck.
Rebuilt from the ground up, Checkout’s new product manager offers
better search functions and allows for editing and deletion of
multiple products at the same time. Version 3 makes it possible to
accept down payments and deposits on orders.
A typical retail sale is now completed faster and easier. With
improved support for barcode scanners and magnetic swipe readers,
Checkout now purportedly works even better in a high-volume business.
Checkout 3 is priced at US$399.
Werck has also launched a new Checkout web store, EnStore. It’s a
pay-as-you-go web store that integrates with Checkout. Products can
be managed in Checkout and then synced with EnStore, online orders
and customers are then tracked directly in Checkout.
EnStore lets you customize your store, automatic shipping and tax
rate lookup (US and Canada only), and offer payment processing
through major payment providers. It’s currently in beta testing with
no set-up fee, free hosting, and unlimited bandwidth and storage.
