The big news with this release? The Populi Bookstore. Now you can run your college Bookstore with Populi. Featuring a Point of Sale Terminal, inventory management and reporting, and, of course, an online shopping cart, Populi Bookstore is accessible to all of your users as well as any visitors to your website.
Credit Card Processing
More big news, actually: Now you can accept credit card payments directly through Populi. Students (or parents) can pay their invoices online, and you can accept credit cards as payment in your Bookstore! To make use of these features, you'll need a merchant account through Chase Paymentech OR an Authorize.net payment gateway account, which can connect your existing merchant account with Populi.

Payment Plans now figure in pending and disbursed financial aid in their calculations.
