  • perfect for any business that requires a POS system, from restaurants, bars, pizza and fast food venues to retail stores, boutique shops and mobile vendors.

  • multiple payment integrations, including Square, Authorize.Net, PayPal, and iZettle, for accepting payments via credit cards, cash, eChecks, Apple Pay and contactless payments.

  • safe and secure, fully PCI-compliant cloud-based POS solution that keeps all your business data safe in the cloud, so you do not need any expensive local servers to store any crucial information.

With a user satisfaction score of 100% on the FinancesOnline website at the time of this writing, posIPOS enables small business and individual vendors to have a scalable and easy to use point of sale system, based on the proven iPad tablet, at a fraction of the cost of a traditional POS system, and without investing a lot in additional hardware, servers and PCs.
