What I'm thinking is an app that would allow you to "Reserve" something online without having to pay for it until you actually show up.
Say for example I had a store that made custom cakes. The customer could go online and put all the customizable details about frosting, lettering, and even flavor. They wouldn't pay for it then but just reserve it so that I could get it ready.
Then when they make it to the store I am easily look up our draft order for that cake and charge them via the POS.

Hi, we created a new app to solve exactly this. It's called Draft And Custom Orders For POS, (https://apps.shopify.com/draft-and-custom-orders-for-pos)
Before this app, you would have to go into the Admin (on the computer) to create or edit a draft order, and then in order to checkout/charge a customer, you would have to email/send them the invoice link or charge them through your computer.
Now with this app, you can create a custom draft order right within POS, and you can add that draft order straight to the POS cart in order to checkout/charge the customer inside your retail store or in person. Much easier and simpler!
With Draft And Custom Orders For Shopify POS you can now do the following all within the Shopify POS app for any device:
