Chances are if you’re reading this post, you’re interested in finding out which Magento POS (point-of-sale) integration is most suitable for your business.
Well, the first thing to say here then is that we can’t tell you – and here’s why.
When it comes to choosing the most suitable POS system for your business, you need to understand what you need from it. According to Point Of Sale News, the number one mistake people make when choosing their system is not understanding their business requirements – you need to focus on what is best for your company, not for Magento.
If you still want some advice, there really are plenty of options so take some time to do some research. If you’re a small-to-medium-sized business, we would suggest taking a look at some of the more reputable POS systems such as:
Both a cloud-based POS system and a local server POS system depending on which price package you go for, Lightspeed is available exclusively for Apple products as it was originally developed by a former Apple engineer.
Despite that limitation, it’s a great POS system for Magento and currently has one of the highest ratings online. Not only that, it’s open API means integration with Magento is simple and hassle-free.
Do you make use of Quickbooks? If so, this could be the POS system for you.
The obvious attraction with this system is that it will integrate seamlessly with Quickbooks, but unfortunately, its features aren’t quite as extensive as Lightspeed. Despite this, Quickbooks POS has all the important things a retailer could need including the potential for mobile checkout, real-time inventory management and purchase order management.
This is potentially the best POS system developed solely for Magento – but just remember, you should be choosing your system based on your business needs.
Ebizmarts is ideal for a smaller business looking for a simple-to-integrate POS system, but it’s lacking in some key areas that a larger business might need so bear that in mind.
There you have it, three tried and trusted EPOS options for almost any type of business!
