What kind of smoke shops do you cater towards?
From high-end cigar and pipe shops to discount cigarette and vape stores, POS Nation has successfully implemented hundreds of tobacco POS systems and is well versed with the particular needs of the industry.
What does a tobacco store POS system come with?
Our standard tobacco POS hardware includes a touchscreen computer, cash drawer, barcode scanner, and receipt printer. Most tobacco stores are also interested in barcode label printers, which allow businesses to print custom barcodes for individual cigars, and customer displays, which allow customers to see the price of the products as they are rung up.
What’s the most useful feature of your tobacco store point of sale?
In our opinion, the carton-pack inventory feature is the most useful feature of our tobacco POS software. Our tobacco point of sale automatically tracks cigarette stock levels, even when cartons are broken down into individual packs. The same feature can also track individual cigars and cigar boxes letting you know your exact stock at all times.
How else can a smoke shop POS system save me time and money?
Two other features that will help streamline your business are custom label printing and financial reporting and tracking. Custom label printing allows you to automatically print individual cigar labels when you receive inventory, and with financial reporting, calculate monthly tobacco tax with a few simple clicks.
Can your tobacco point of sale track loose leaf tobacco?
Absolutely. With a standalone scale that’s directly integrated to your POS, you can seamlessly weigh and ring up loose leaf tobacco.
Our standard tobacco store POS system includes:
- Touch PC
- Receipt Printer
- Cash Drawer
Most common upgrades:
- Barcode and Label Printer
- Customer Display
- ID Scanner
- Integrated Scale
Generate Purchase Orders
Use reorder points to automatically create a purchase order for 10 more boxes of Montecristo Cigars when your stock runs low. And when your order arrives, your inventory automatically adjusts so you always have an accurate count of what's on hand.
Manage All Your Suppliers From a Single Location
Track all your suppliers from a single system. Know which vendors are driving your sales, view all outstanding POs for each supplier, and even add multiple vendors to any items that you sell. Select your preferred vendors for reordering inventory, and email purchase orders directly from the POS.
Print Custom Cigar Labels
If you sell individual cigars, you know how difficult it can be to ensure your cashier rings up an accurate price. With customized designed cigar labels, easily barcode individual cigars. Print sticky labels and shelf tags as well to keep your store organized.
Incentivize Repeat Business with Customer Loyalty Programs
Repeat business is critical to the tobacco industry. Reward your customers continued business with a customized reward and loyalty program. Track customers by phone number or issue a loyalty card and then customize your program to offer dollar rewards, percent discounts, or even free products. Our POS software's customer database also tracks purchase history so you can recall what type of Romeo y Julieta cigar your customer enjoyed so much last time.
Manage Employee Security
Imagine this: taking a vacation without worrying about what your employees are doing…
With our tobacco POS, each employee and manager will have a unique sales code and password for use and access to the system. Customize each sales code to ensure only your managers can access sensitive information. And once a sales code is setup, assign it again and again to new employees.
Block back room staff from gaining access to the cash drawer, while still allowing them to clock in and out for attendance tracking. Track cash drawer discrepancies by the individual employee.

“POS Nation is a professional stop for all point of sale supplies. The company offers a great system with great tech support. The one-year tech support available to purchase solves all the questions and gives spacious time to all the users to understand the working of the product. The sales staff is as helpful as any other department. They would always come back to you with the positive response and would try to help in the best possible manner. The system works great for all retail suppliers. It is a user-friendly interface with bare minimum tech support requirements. We have used it at all our four locations and would strongly recommend to other retailers.
- House of Smokes
“We sell custom blend tobaccos. We have six stores. The POS has really been helping us out. We have thousands of customers. When customers come in with their account card or their Double D’s card, we hit Quick Find, swipe the card, and the system automatically shows their name, what they smoke, and their bonus points. It’s a really brilliant idea if you want to run a business well and clean.”
- Double D's Tobacco
