Ring Up Sales
The most basic function of any point of sale is to quickly and efficiently ring up sales. For barcoded items, nothing rings up products more quickly and accurately than a traditional scanner, and for non-barcoded or high-volume products, the touchscreen interface allows for fast order entry with a single touch.
Start Making Decisions Based On Data
What are your top sellers? How much sales tax do you owe this month? How many hours did your employees work this pay period? And what's your current inventory count?
Take the guess work out of managing your business; with over 50 pre-built reports, find answers to these questions with a single click.
Accept All Forms of Payment
From cash, credit card, check, debit, on account, Apple Pay, and Google Wallet, accept virtually all forms of payment. With integrated payments, seamlessly accept credit cards on the side of your POS system. And with POS Nation Payment Processing, we guarantee we can save your business money by reducing your rates.
Manage Your Vendors and Create Purchase Orders
Our POS software uses hot keys to look up produce and other non-barcoded items. Sort products by department to quickly navigate through items and 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.
Track On Account Customers
Our retail POS software has the ability to create on account payments for your customers. With customized account receivable terms and limits, keep a firm grasp on your business' outstanding receivables. At any time, you will be able to have a complete listing of any open or paid invoices and the payment history of a particular customer.
Customized Customer Loyalty Programs
With the software's built-in loyalty program, generate more repeat business than ever before. Customize your loyalty program to offer a free product on the fifth visit or 10% off for every $100 spent or even reward a frequent buyer with a discount, store credit, or gift card. However you want to set up your plan, the system can accommodate your needs.
Assign a loyalty card to each customer, so the process is fast and easy. Our software gives you the ability to create multiple levels of achievements within a loyalty plan so customers can aim for bigger rewards, which means they spend more money at your business.
Print Labels and Barcodes
If you are a boutique, tobacco and vape shop, or grocery store, you know how important the barcode scanner is to quickly make a sale. Our POS software allows you to create sticky labels, jewelry tags, shelf tags, clothing tags, cigar labels, and more with the click of a button.
Using the built-in label processing tool, Barcode Express, decide how many labels you want to print, choose the label size, and then start printing. The system also automatically adds your newly received items to the print queue for convenience and ease of use.

What a Few of Our Customers Are Saying About Us...
"Outstanding service before and after delivery. If they can make me work on this POS (because I am not a tech guy) anyone can work with them. WILL STRONGLY RECOMMEND THIS COMPANY IF YOU ARE LOOKING TO BUY POS."
- Rakesh Handa, Annapoorna Store
"I can't thank my customer rep enough for her professional support, dedication, and diligence integrating both organizations (POS Nation and POS-X) and her ability to collaboratively work real-time to solve a complex and crucial issue for my client. Her ability to listen, satisfy my client's needs, and discern the best business decision to procure future business for both organizations was outstanding! That day my client was frustrated and agitated to a point of leaving all business with both companies, but thanks to her customer service ability and advanced sense of the best business decision, the future went from impossible to the possible! In addition, they did wonders for the client and exceeded expectations — as they had expected nothing but more frustration. In my expert opinion as former partner in largest management and systems integration company in the world, the patience that resulted in an actionable solution was largely above par! Thank you again! Please let me know if I can advocate or your behalf in any other way to get you the credit you deserve. Thank you again."
- Nick Jackson, Tybee Island Historical Society
" A superb purchasing experience! The website did a great job of describing the product features. Next, we called customer service to make further inquires. What a surprise! The staff was incredibly knowledgeable, courteous and genuinely interested in our needs. The hardware and software were delivered when promised. Setup was a breeze. Customer support and our representative, Spence, knew exactly who we were when we called. We were up and running in two days. Thanks for making the retail hardware and software the easiest part of our store!"
- Athens Academy
"I purchased their system to run a C-store on recommendation from my niece; best thing I have done so far for the business. Their system is wonderful and a godsend to the business. I can track inventory quickly, no mistakes on pricing by employees, quickly get end of the reports for the CPA. They have the best support team that can fix anything online from there office with ease. Keeps the register working properly all the time which means cash flow. The best service I have seen so far in today's complicated world of running a business and keeping correct records."
- Bob Beiler, Riverside Services
"This company has been one of the best I have ever dealt with. They went far beyond the sale to take care of some software issues that were not even there doing. I have been in business for over 25 years and wish other companies had a quarter of their customer service.
- Randy Mullins, Healthsmart, LLC
"The system was a piece of cake coming out of the box. Setup took two calls; however, they answered quickly and efficiently. Thanks. Reports help with forecasting, inventory management and time tracking."
- Derek Turno, Asheville Adventure Rentals
"I am leaving a five-star review for Tech Support's Morris. I have been struggling to become a pro with my POS and with every call I have made to Morris he has been patient and kind. ... Good customer care is a dying practice but POS Nation seems to have a good hold on what it means to really care for their customers. I look forward to working with POS Nation in the future."
- Yessy Garza, Elegant Bride & Quinceanera
"We hired POS Nation to upgrade our current system. They worked with our budget and helped us to pick a system that fit our needs. We have had good response from their customer service and excellent service from their sales team too."
"Fairly simple. I'm still learning how to use it. Lots of functions that I'm not taking advantage of yet — like the reporting."
"I've only used it for a couple of months, but considering we were using a regular cash register before, it's a night and day difference."
Niche Industry Verticals That Use Our Retail POS
- Pet Stores: Selling live animals can be particularly tricky for retailers. Pet stores benefit from the ability to track individual pets in inventory as well as make customer notes pertaining to pets in the system. Read more about how pet stores use our POS system.
- Bakeries: Although they sell food and beverages, many bakeries operate more as a retailer than a restaurant. Bakeries commonly use the built in recipe tracking and the programmable hot keys to help run their business. Read our blog article outlining bakery point of sale systems.
- Hobby Shops: The most unique facet of hobby and craft shops is having to sell and stock fabric and other materials in yards or cubic units. Our system does this easily. Check out our blog article which explains a couple other common POS features used by hobby shops. Read our blog article to see how hobby shops take advantage of our POS system.
- Vape Shops: Although casual consumers tend to classify vape stores with tobacco shops, these two business types typically use different point of sale features. For vape shops, the POS system must track customer purchase history so merchants can look up what juice combinations their customers last purchased. Most vapor and e-cigarette stores that mix their own juices also employ remote printers with their point of sale.
