This means, you only pay for the software per device and not for number of cashiers working for your retail chain. You may have 12-15 users at one store running 5 POS terminals; so you pay for only 5 POS software. Sounds good! iVend POS comes in two flavors.
Is the traditional Windows based till based POS having cash drawer, pole display, magnetic swipe readers, etc. Terminal POS is still by far the most popular POS, even though there are other forms of POS available and fast gaining popularity.
