You’ve probably seen cashiers at the supermarket swiping debit cards fast, pressing buttons on expensive-looking machines connected to the cash register. You might even have heard of somebody getting paid through one of these machines—to you, this all might seem magical.
POS stands for Point of Sale. It’s an electronic terminal that allows sellers (like your local supermarket) to process multiple forms of payment from customers—cash, cheques, debit, credit cards—and track inventory.
Some POS systems are even capable of accepting mobile credit payments. All of this is done with the push of a button, so you don’t have to wait for anything to be processed by a cashier or an employee.
The history of POS can be traced back to 1879 when James Ritty first invented the cash register.
IBM introduced the first POS system (in the 1970s). Two of its earliest users were the Dillard’s Departments Stores in California and Pathmark supermarkets in New Jersey and New York.
At the time, most retail establishments were still using the old-fashioned cash registers, with a few using electronic cash registers, which were essentially nothing more than a typewriter combined with a calculator.
It didn’t take long before IBM’s POS system caught the eyes of other retailers and manufacturers and was soon rolled out to various supermarkets and departmental stores worldwide. The rest is history: nowadays, most stores use POS systems to process payments more efficiently and keep track of their inventory.
In recent years, different types of POS have been introduced to the market, so it can be a bit overwhelming trying to figure out which one is best for your business. Here are a few examples:
With mobile payments on the rise, retailers operating on a shoestring budget no longer have to purchase a physical POS system with a cash register. Instead, they can opt for a smartphone app that allows them to create an inventory list, accept credit/debit card payments, and process customer orders.
A POS app with basic features is always free, but a paid one with more advanced features ranges from $30 to $150 a month.

POS system is an advanced app with a variety of functions that store data for you.
It allows you to transfer transactions, create reports and graphs, and help in managing your inventory, all with a simple click of a few buttons. It’s like having your very own cashier in the backroom.
Here’s a simple breakdown of how a POS system works:
The POS System has a variety of features that makes the entire process simpler and easier to manage. Here are some of its main functions:
The POS System helps the cashier enter order information correctly by showing them images that match products they’re trying to ring up. This saves time because it ensures that the cashier enters the correct information into the computer.
Businesses have different needs for POS systems. If you sell products individually or in small volumes, you can opt for a low-end cash register. A touch screen will be more suitable if you’re running a convenience store or selling high-volume items. Here’s some of the POS hardware you’ll need:
I know what you’re thinking, “What are the best types of POS systems?” The short answer is that it depends on your business needs.
There’s no one-size-fits-all type of POS system. For example, if you have a retail store, an open-source or cloud-based POS system will work for you better than a standard point of sale system.
But what if you’re running a restaurant? A standard point of sale system will work better because it can manage menu prices and integrate with a kitchen display system.
As you can see, choosing the right POS system for your business depends on what you need it to do.
