Updated on September 10, 2018

If you experience some issues with the Point of Sale, we invite you to first try a few simple troubleshooting steps to see if it solves the problem (such as checking the POS configuration).

Once, you’ve executed the initial troubleshooting steps, we invite you to review the list of common issues in case you can find the solution to your problem.

If the common scenarios are of no avail, we need you to provide specific details about your issue so we can assist you efficiently.

Initial Troubleshooting Steps

If the POS app seems not working as expected as login, placing orders, adding a customer, not processing a credit card, start by trying the following troubleshooting steps:

Login issue

  • Logout of the POS app and log back in.
  • Restart the device(s) you’re using to clear the memory and ensure Troly has enough memory to run normally. Please wait until the device has fully powered down before you turn it on again.
  • Test on different devices/operating systems to see if your experience the same issue everywhere.
  • Check that your device operating system is updated to its most latest version.
  • Log in with different credentials and try with a wrong password to see if there’s a communication with the server (based on the message returned).
  • Uninstall and re-install the app (iOS, Android).

Check for pending updates

iOS

From the App Store icon → tap Updates (bottom right corner of the screen) → tap Update All (top of the screen) → enter your password and wait for your app to update.

Android

From the Google Play Store icon → tap on Main Menu (three lines of the top left corner) → tap My apps & games in the Updates tab, scroll down to find Troly app → click on Update and Accept.

Clear app cache

To see if it improves the performance of the application.

iOS

Go to Settings → Select Troly → Scroll to bottom of page, choose Clear History and Website Data → Confirm action

Android

Go to Settings → Find Apps/Applications in your menu → Application Manager → tap on Troly → tap on Clear cache and app.

Connectivity/Network issue

Test under different mobile/connectivity network:

  • Turn Wi-Fi on and off
  • Try different Access Point Names
    • iOS: Settings → Mobile Data → Mobile Data Options → Mobile Data Network
    • Android: Settings → Mobile Network → Access Point Names

Credit card issue

For credit cards: test with different credit cards to see if the issue is coming from one card in particular or not.

Common Problems and Suggested Solutions

Network Issue

Authentication Won’t Complete

You may be using an old version of the app (early 2017) prior to the rebrand from Subscribility into Troly.

Notification Issue

Duplicate receipt sent to a customer

Troly does automatically send an invoice to your customers based on your communication settings in Troly (the “Order Has Been Shipped” and the “Thank You For Your Order” templates automatically attach an invoice to the email). The  “Send receipt” email and SMS is a separate option available in the POS.

Shipping Issue

When creating an order from the POS, the following error message may come up: “No shipping fees matched the delivery address provided“. If this is the case, try the following:
  • Confirm if the shipping fees corresponding to the shipping region are set in the Shipping configuration add-on
  • Delete the shipping region in the Shipping configuration add-on and add it again
  • Create the order with the same shipping details inside the webapp (in Troly) and check if there is an error coming from the webapp as well
  • Create the shipment again in the POS
  • Double check the carton size in the order itself, try and change it
