POS terminals are thought to be an efficient tool to increase efficiency and enhance customer experience. Especially for convenience stores that have great cashier demands, POS terminals play an important role. This POS hardware guide will give some useful tips on choosing a suitable pos terminal for convenience store.
What is an ideal convenience store POS like?
Unlike supermarkets, most convenience stores are much smaller and have a checkout counter that can hold fewer items. That’s why a compact POS terminal is more suitable to be placed at convenience stores. The space-saving cash registers not only can make the checkout counter tidier but also provide more space for arranging small items such as gum and tissues to stimulate customers to buy.
🔸Provide multiple payment options
Convenience stores face a variety of consumer groups, covering the elderly, children, office workers, etc. Different consumer groups have different payment habits. For example, the elderly and children prefer to pay in cash, and most young people prefer more convenient mobile payments. As a result, the ideal convenience store POS is supposed to support multiple payments. The more payment options the POS terminals provide, the more convenience the customers can enjoy.
🔸Smooth and stable operation
No convenience store owner would like to see long checkout lines and anxious customers. A performant POS terminal may even be more helpful than an experienced cashier. The powerful performance of convenience store POS can fully ensure smooth operation and stable running, which perfectly avoids the problem of machines stuck and streamlines the checkout process.
In response to the needs mentioned above, Telpo has launched several POS terminals suitable for use in convenience stores.
