Sometimes simple is all you need
Thinking about starting a small business? One of the things that you’ll need to consider is how you are going to take payments from your customers. Today’s retail customers expect a full line of convenient and flexible payment options that offer fast checkout times. But, how do you go about choosing the right POS system to meet the needs of your new business? With so many systems to choose from, it can be a daunting task, but there are couple of key factors that you should keep in mind when deciding on a POS system.
First and foremost, the POS system that you select should be easy to set up and simple to use. Start with the basics such as POS software that will run on your PC, a “cash” drawer and a printer for receipts. Down the road, as your business grows, you can always add on “peripherals” as you need them. Your small business payment processing system should be affordable. A basic, preconfigured system can cost less than $2000, and many companies offer used POS equipment and peripherals as well as new POS systems. Make sure that you are buying your system software and equipment from a company that offers expert customer service if and when you need it.
