If you’re using a decades-old hand-held countertop terminal that's only good for ringing up purchases and printing out receipts, it might be time for an upgrade. New POS systems aren’t just a way to accept payments—they are software powerhouses that help merchants streamline business processes and drive sales.
Because of connections between many large payment processors and point of sale system providers, switching your merchant services provider can sometimes be an investment—both in time and money. Licensing fees, service contracts, and various other costs are an unfortunate but necessary hurdle for some businesses. However, switching POS systems can often reduce your expenditures.
