Imonggo Store v3

Last week, we talked about the reasons why you should use Store v3. This advanced version of Store is faster, has more features, and can work offline. Read about it here.

One commonly-asked question about Store v3 is how it works. This a perfectly valid question, because there are still misconceptions about it, more so with the word ‘offline.’

Store v3 is not offline, per se. It is offline in the sense that it processes sales offline, meaning, it cuts the process by half, resulting to a faster transaction.

V1 works like this: Every step you do becomes a query to the online server. Adding a product contacts the server, changing the quantity contacts the server, finalizing the transaction contacts the server, generating a receipt contacts the server.

Store v3 is not offline, per se. It is offline in the sense that it processes sales offline, meaning, it cuts the process by half, resulting to a faster transaction.

v3 makes the process easier by localizing the data, so it works without the need to contact the server. It only contacts the server to submit the sale.

To get v3 online immediately, login to Imonggo normally, as in, from the Imonggo homepage. When you click the Store link, it goes to v3. That is online v3, and you can process credit cards there (it contacts the server to do this).

This is why you cannot clear browser cache when you do not have internet, since all v3 offline saved sales will be deleted, too.

Lastly, you cannot process credit card transactions when you have no internet.
