Using a Point of Sale System with Your iPad

Small business owners have more options than ever when it comes to sales transactions and processing. While traditional card readers continue to have their place, many have now turned to point of sale systems that are used in conjunction with mobile devices such as iPads. Each and every day this technology becomes more advanced as well as more popular, and this is why all business owners should take a closer look at using their own company’s iPads as a PoS system and if this type of transaction will fit their own unique needs and requirements when it comes to sending generated revenue to a merchant account.

The Benefits of a PoS System

A PoS system takes many of the most common but arduous tasks of running a business and simplifies them via automation. At its heart, an iPad POS system will help employees make sales at any time and any place that there is access to a wireless signal or wireless network. The credit card slider, or additional the input for cash sales, is automatically uploaded and saved. While this is useful in and of itself, the software used to run a PoS system can be used to directly transmit information to employees around the company, track stock, upload information for credit card processing, maintain inventory, and create any number of reports and analysis with this information.

Starting Out with Hardware

There are a few primary components that the business will need beginning with one or more iPads and the card reader that will be used to upload information for credit card processing. These devices are usually hardwired with one another and little or no information is stored on the iPad itself. While it is always important to have thorough security provisions in place in the event of stolen or damaged hardware, these systems have quite a few protective layers in place to prevent more serious data breaches.

Secure Accounts and Software

Along with this basic hardware, there will also be some specialized accounts that the business owner will need as well as unique software. Before making any credit card sales, a merchant account will need to purchased or activated in order to safely make transactions. Most PoS systems will come with their own software that is housed both on the iPad and on a cloud server as added safety. Once all of these components are in place, business owners can begin securely and efficiently making sales.



It took me a while to decide who I wanted to settle with to handle all of my credit card transactions because every company wants to make it sound like they're offering you the best rates. was able compare and beat all of the other offers I received. They were also able to provide me the fairest price on my EMV-compliant terminal. My sales representative and the support team were there to assist every step of the way. Ultimately, I'm looking forward to a long term relationship with this company.

The service was very professional, my sales person (Steven B.) was very well versed in the product and most helpful in getting our company set up to accept credit cards via my cell phone. Their rates are some of the lowest on the market and their service is unparalleled. I will recommend them to anyone requiring a credit card processing service.

I called indecisive about getting a device, but speaking to your Sales Consultant completely settled me. He was very professional, knowledgeable and patiently walked me through the process. He always responded to my voicemails and answered all my questions. After I received my merchandise, he called following up to ensure that I had received it. Customer service I would say is 5 stars.
