Lightspeed is best for small to medium-sized businesses. It offers relatively advanced retail-specific functions at a very reasonable price point, starting at $69/month, with in-house flat-rate payment processing through Lightspeed Payments at 2.6% + $0.10 per transaction. However, you also have the option to integrate with an outside payment processor if you prefer.
The Clover Mini, as its name implies, is smaller than the full Clover Station, but is still designed for use in a fixed location. (Looking for portability in-store or at a restaurant? Go with Mobile or Flex.) It includes many of the same functions as the full POS, and can scan barcodes and QR codes. It also has a built-in printer can be tethered to the Clover Station for use as a customer-facing display and card swiper.
Mais, vous n'avez pas besoin d'une telle configuration pour accepter les transactions à clé. Square for Retail offre à vos clients la possibilité de payer directement depuis leur navigateur à l'aide de cartes de crédit. Le seul inconvénient est que les frais de traitement pour les paiements par clé sont légèrement plus élevés que les paiements par balayage.
Clover is super easy to use and get started with, even if you have minimal or no POS experience. Its short learning curve makes it easy to train employees, and proprietary features such as fingerprint login (on the Clover Station) make logging in a breeze. You don’t have to source your hardware from different places and hope it’s all compatible; Clover has everything you need to start selling out-of-the-box.
The only nice thing I can say about Clover is the machines themselves. They work. Customer service is about as bad as I have ever experienced. You call and a computer answers, you get put on hold, each customer service person says they can’t help you and pass you off to someone else you puts you on hold and then they say they can’t help you. All I have ever gotten has been the run around. In three months of trying to close my account because I closed the business, I have had ONE person actually help me and what needed done turned out to be very easy. Basically Clover, Owned by FirstData SUCKS.
Chaque solution POS de restaurant permet aux professionnels de la restauration d'utiliser la gestion de la trésorerie et l'intégration des fournisseurs de services de paiement pour traiter les commandes et contrôler les finances de leur entreprise. Mais à mesure que les marges s'amenuisent, les professionnels de ce secteur ont besoin de systèmes POS qui leur offrent plus de possibilités. Actuellement, un point de vente intégré offre également les fonctions suivantes :
Their customer service SUCKS!!!!!!! I have been put on hold for up to 30 minutes to have them get on the line and tell me I need to call a different number! Yes they can NEVER find your merchant ID number it's like you don't even exist. We are not a restaurant, and we have had to put our inventory in three different times! The little barcode scanner on the screen constantly stops working and when I tried to purchase a handheld barcode scanner just yesterday I spent the entire day on the phone, getting transferred, being put on hold, told I have to call different numbers and was finally told that they would email me the paperwork to get a scanner, and this is the best part.........they can't send the scanner until they receive my check BECAUSE THEY DONT TAKE CREDIT CARDS! What a ridiculous rinky dink operation! Run far far away from this system!
