Nowadays, coffee shops may be one of the fastest-growing businesses. In addition to making sure the good tastes of your coffee, delivering the best serving experience to customers is also of great importance.

Before you start selecting POS hardware, you need to clear your expectations for the features of POS hardware, and then you are more likely to find the POS hardware that works best for you.

Touchscreen monitor

The display is a must of POS hardware, whose size also decides the size of the POS terminal. It is important for you to consider how much space is available for your cash register. Most coffee shops have narrow checkout counters, so a small-size and unobtrusive POS terminal might fit in better with the cafe environment.

Customer-facing display

A customer-facing display, which is also named a secondary display, helps improve customers’ checkout experience by showing items and order details. Besides, a secondary display makes it easier for customers to confirm bills and make payments. Though a customer-facing display offers a better checkout experience for customers, it’s not a must for every coffee shop to introduce a dual-display cash register, especially for coffee shops on a tight budget.

Receipt printer

Most coffee shops have a great demand for receipt printing. There are two choices for a cafe owner to realize the printing function, respectively selecting a POS terminal with a built-in printer and purchasing an external printer. As digital payment and electronic billing become more popular, many customers think receipts are not necessary. For a start-up coffee shop, the owner can purchase a POS terminal not supporting printing first and introduce an external printer when receipt printing is needed.

Cash drawer

If your cafe serves customers who used to pay in cash, a cash drawer may help you better manage the cash. In contrast, if there are few customers paying in cash, there is no need for a cafe owner to add the cash drawer to the shopping list.

When you know what you want, it’s time for you to pick the POS hardware.
