What Our POS System Can Do For Your Grocery or Market
Click the tabs below for more information.
Do I really need a grocery point of sale system?
Absolutely. Some businesses can get by with an old-time cash register, but for groceries and markets, checkout speed and efficiency can make or break your business.
I own a butcher shop and meat market. Do you have a POS system for me?
Butcher shop and meat market POS systems are basically the same as our grocery point of sale. The system allows users to weigh and sell meat by the pound and even track inventory on product sold by the pound. Label printing scales make a great addition to any retailer offerings custom cut meats and cheeses.
What does a grocery POS come with?
Grocery POS systems come with a variety of specifications and peripheral devices depending on your business’ needs. All retail POS systems come with a standard touchscreen terminal, receipt printer, and cash drawer. From there, your system can be customized to meet your needs. Larger grocery stores with heavy volume tend to use scanner-scales to maximize checkout speed. Markets with delis or meat departments often utilize label printing scales.
I don’t have room for a scanner scale in my market, but I want to quickly ring up sales. What can I do?
We offer standalone scales that directly integrate with our grocery POS system as well as flatbed and omnidirectional barcode scanners that can scan a barcode at any angle.
How can your grocery POS software help my business?
Our grocery POS software will help you keep track of inventory stock, automate purchase orders, determine best and worst sellers, use gift cards and loyalty plans, and help you optimize employee labor.
What kind of groceries do you serve?
Whether you are a specialty market, an independent location, a multi-unit chain, or even a meat market, we can customize a POS system with any hardware to meet your needs.
Our standard grocery POS system includes:
- Touch PC
- Receipt Printer

- Customer Display

Quickly Ring Up Sales
Moving customers through the checkout process and avoiding long lines is absolutely imperative for groceries and markets.
Use customizable hot keys to search for produce and for other prepared food items. Easily search for products using names or PLU numbers. Integrated scales allow for fast and accurate check out of weighed items.
Clock Employee Hours and Attendance
No more punching time cards! Each staff member will be able to quickly and easily track their working hours and break times. Each employee can be set up with their individual pay rate, and you can run reports with a single click for payroll processing. Remove the administrative burden of manually calculating hours and let our system do the work for you.
Accept All Forms of Payment Including EBT
From cash, credit card, check, on account, Apple Pay, and Google Wallet, accept virtually all forms of payment. Your store can accept debit and EBT as well with a pin pad to broaden your customer base.
And with POS Nation Payment Processing, we guarantee we can reduce your credit card rates and save your business money. In an industry where every dollar counts, stop throwing away money on needless fees.
Make Business Decisions Based On Data
The combination of shrinkage, perishable products, thin margins, and potentially thousands of SKUs means there's absolutely no room for error when making business decisions about which products to stock and which ones to let go.
With over 50 pre-built reports, gain the insight you need to make better business decisions.
Hot Key Look Ups
Unless you want to slap a barcode on a head of lettuce, our POS software uses hot keys to look up produce and other non-barcoded items. Sort products by department to quickly navigate through fruits, apples, and then the specific variety of apple to eliminate cashier errors.
Hot keys ultimately reduce checkout times by eliminating the need for cashiers to sort through dozens and dozens of PLU numbers. Coordinate each department by color to maximize efficiency.
Create Combo Kits
Grocers frequently bundle items together to drive sales of targeted products. A classic example is offering a jar of marinara sauce and a block of (high margin) parmesan cheese at a 10% discount when purchased together. Or maybe you want to offer a bundled discount on flowers and chocolates during Valentine's Day. The bottom line is that you upsell a high margin product by bundling it with product known to drive sales.
Our grocery POS software makes creating a combo kit fast and easy. Create a unique barcode, hot key, or have the POS system automatically recognize a bundle when the items are rung up separately. The system knows when the combo has been sold and applies the appropriate discount.
Issue Coupons to Drive Sales
There are a lot of customers out there that just can’t pass up an item if it’s on sale, especially if they have a coupon in hand. Create coupons for your entire inventory, individual items, departments, or select groups of items.
The discounts can be any flat amount or percentage off the retail price. Place an ad in your local paper, or online, with a barcode and your customers will be able to bring it to scan at check out. Similar to combo kits, issuing coupons will drive sales for your grocery or market.
Unlimited Database of Items
One of the most common questions we receive from groceries is, "How many items can your database hold?" An unlimited amount!
And the best part? You can easily find and access any product. From the main POS screen, items can be searched by category, department, or vendor to locate products in a matter of seconds. Never have your a customer stuck during a transaction because the cashier can't locate an item.

What a Few of Our Customers Are Saying...
"So much POSitive feedback to share and report here that I can go on for hours — but I will keep it short and to the point. I operate a home delivery food service and needed a system that would be specifically programmed to meet my business needs. I tried using systems from two other companies they both sounded pretty decent and professional at the sales end, but that's where it also ended. Whenever I needed tech support or help I was told to call an 800 number that was connected to India — or who knows wherever else on the globe. The calls wouldn't always connect and when they did, the connection wasn't always clear. When I was finally able to talk with someone, either I would not understand them or they would not understand me. I truly got frustrated and dropped them after losing thousands of dollars and wasted time. I was ready to give up on a POS system completely until, one afternoon, I came across an advertisement on my computer screen from POS Nation. I was honestly hesitant to call, but I did call anyways. And this is what truly happened from that very first phone call. The person who answered that call was extremely knowledgeable. They not only took their time listening to me, but explaining my specific needs while wanting to have a complete understanding of all the details. I felt very confident that this company was going to make it work for me. It took a few days and they got back to me with a detailed plan. I still needed to fine tune it, and they did. I went for it and signed on. I received the complete package with everything in it exactly as promised. A clear and easy instruction sheet came with it and I was able to set it up myself. I still needed tech support and help as I went along with set up and they gave me an 800 number to call — but with this company, I was ALWAYS connected to an English-speaking professional in North Carolina, USA. Help was always, and still is, there anytime and every time I need it. I've spoken with many experts at POS Nation and ALL of them are always there and eager to help. I would like to use this opportunity to personally thank Spence Hoffman, Product Specialist, who was always there for me and numerous times went out of his way to help. Thank you so much, Spence — I couldn't have done it without your help. So to sum it all up, If you need a POS system that is powerful, easy to use and a back up support team that is always there for you, you get it from POS NATION the clear recipient of a strong FIVE STAR RATING."
- Joseph Gelbman, Parve Zone
"Everything was there when we got it. We opened the box and everything was ready to go. The folks at tech support are always good, they get back to you and resolve the problems"
- Moe Aquino, Barrino Market
"We have been running our POS system since May of 2013. The system has worked great for us and has been really easy to learn and teach to our employees. It has been a real learning process because the software is so robust and is able to do so much. Every issue that comes up, though, customer service has been there every step of the way. I've made calls to them late at night, early in the morning, and pretty much any time of day. They have always been able to work me through any issue I've had and kept things running smoothly. I've also been impressed by their adaptability to our specific way of doing business and how they have helped me work through some of our inventory problems. One of my biggest concerns when purchasing this system was how the customer service was going to be, and it has been second to none. GREAT JOB!!"
- Jeff McDonald, Purearth Organics
"POS Nation has been great! I have to say that the system is very robust and able to do a lot so there is a little bit of a learning curve. They have been very good with supporting us on getting our inventory uploaded for our grand opening! Once the system is figured out it is very user friendly. Dan is the man!"
- Jim Gannon, Organnos
"My wife and I spent several months researching POS systems for our new grocery store in Colorado. In the end, POS Nation won our money by providing us with great service prior to our purchase — and outstanding technical support during the set-up and learning period. POS Nation was responsive to our phone calls and emails, and all of our questions and technical issues were resolved promptly. There are many companies offering POS systems, but I would not hesitate to recommend POS Nation. Our system has been rock solid, and their technical support continues to help us as we grow and learn how to use the many features available."
- Peter Nesbitt, High Country Market
"After working for an hour or two, you basically can just fly around the system, it’s very simple to use. Even as we get new people who come right in saying, “Oh I've never used this before.” An hour later they’re using it by themselves."
- Mike Barret, Barrino Market
"Bought my first POS system in October 2012. Since that time, I have been very satisfied with the service provided by all representatives online or on phone. If their service used to be bad before, as some comments indicate, then they have totally revamped it and have made it much better. Everyone answered my questions in great detail and I was fully satisfied with the purchase. The one time so far I've had to get help, the representative was able to point me in the right direction. Plus, most of the basic solutions to issues are already posted on their website."
- Usman Anwar, Al Kareem Grocery Store
