Before we talk about what a POS is, please do not look up this term in https://www.urbandictionary.com/ Lol!!! All jokes aside, a POS is an abbreviation for Point-of-Sale System – which is the register or checkout device you use whenever you shop at a store. Whenever you go to a movie theatre or toy store, a POS is the system they use to scan the barcodes, total up the sale, and receive payment either in cash or credit. There are many options available when it comes to implementing a POS System so it’s better to take your time and try them for free to see which one works for you.
Best Retail Solution
If you have a physical location like a Discount Store, Bin Store, or Flea Market, then you need a quick way to check out your customers. Using a Point-of-Sale System (POS) helps you primarily with checkout speed by scanning a barcode, having it tally the total, then allow your customers to use a credit card or cash to easily complete the transaction. After talking with many customers and which systems they use, we recommend using Vend as your Point-of-Sale System.

I tried using Square or Shopify POS, but the merchant fees were too high! With Vend I save a ton of money on credit card fees which leaves me more profit with the same amount of work!⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

Works with Visa Checkout
Customers today need many options to the checkout. Some prefer Apple Pay while others prefer cash. It’s important to treat every customer with respect and make their payment options available to them. Vend integrates with all these payment options and makes customer checkout easy!
Vend Inventory Management
Even a small store with limited inventory needs to track the ins and outs of product flow. Vend comes with free inventory management software so you don’t have to worry about buying another program! But what if you have a large operation with many facilities and use a large inventory system already? That is fine because Vend integrates easily with the most popular software including QuickBooks and NetSuite.
Cheap Payment Portals
If you use Shopify or Square POS, you are stuck using their merchant services. Merchant Services are the fees you pay whenever a customer uses a credit or debit card. Shopify and Square offer their software a low price and make their money off the high merchant services they charge you! In the long run, the best choice to make is to pay a little extra per month for software but save on the merchant fees. Lowering your credit card fees by a small percentage can save you thousands and thousands of dollars!
