Square for Retail
This is a POS solution that has been specifically designed for retail purposes, so it makes sense that it will be on this list. The first thing that you have to know that it has fairly moderate price and it will help you process your transactions easily and quickly, much like other POS solutions out there. However, where the solution stands out is by allowing you to manage purchase orders and vendor lists, manage an unlimited number of employees, calculate your profit margins and much more, and all of this at a price much lower than most solutions out there. The pricing starts at $60 a month per location for just one device, so if you only have one location and one device you will only pay $60. Every additional device will cost you $20 per month, per device, which is still not a bad price.
The platform does require some specific pieces of hardware and those will cost you around $975 and the register can be bought for $49 per month for 2 years. These seem like big payments, but one will be a onetime payment and the other is pretty reasonable, so it doesn’t really feel like much of a stretch. You will get some great inventory management, which will let you track your products and set your own low stock alerts and you will also be able to create and print your own bar code labels, track returns, receive orders, create and process your orders and much more. The POS can also automatically create customer profiles based on the customers’ payment information and you will have all of the data for that customer in one place.
