How to Know if You Have a Good POS System?

A good POS system can make running any business easier. Whether it is a restaurant, clothing boutique, or other business, a POS system can make credit card processing quick and easy for both businesses and customers. However, to make sure a business has the best possible POS system, there are several factors to consider.

Easy to Use

Before opening merchant accounts, most businesses examine several POS systems to determine which will work best for them and their customers. Most companies will allow merchants to test their systems, and the most reputable companies will offer demonstrations from their sales reps. Some systems have more controls and functions than others, thus allowing service businesses and restaurants to add gratuities to their POS systems. As a rule of thumb, if a system seems confusing to a business and its employees, chances are customers will also feel the same way.

Strong Customer Support

No matter how good a POS system is at credit card processing and other transactions, inevitably problems will arise. Whether it’s a software issue or broken equipment, it’s vital to have customer support that is there 24/7 and has enough experience to handle the most difficult emergency situations. Some companies that open merchant accounts skimp on customer support, thinking they will rarely if ever need it. However, all it takes is one breakdown with the system for them to realize just how important that support is to their business.

Pay-As-You-Go Pricing

While larger businesses often do not hesitate to make a large upfront investment once a POS system is chosen, smaller businesses and those just starting out often prefer to have systems that can be paid for on a monthly basis. However, some of these systems can have cancellation fees and other costs associated with them, so businesses interested in these systems should always ask about contract terms before any final agreements are reached.

Reporting Capabilities

The best POS systems not only allow for excellent processing of credit and debit cards, but also allow business owners to run reports that give them additional data on their business. Reports on profit margins, returns, sales, and more can be added benefits of a POS system.

Business owners who research and test various POS systems are often able to find ones that not only fit into their budget, but are also easy for employees to learn as well as for customers to use.



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.

It is a pleasure dealing with these folks. Their pricing is fair, their statements are understandable and their employees are knowledgeable and friendly.

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. Stellar! Thanks Credit Card Processing, I will definitely recommend you.
