Frequently asked questions about payments and POS

What is a POS (point of sale)?
A Point of Sale (POS) system is a technology used by businesses to conduct sales transactions. This system can operate both in physical locations, like retail stores or farmers' markets, and online through e-commerce platforms and farm website builders. The Point of Sale system handles the checkout process, processes payments, and records sales. A POS system consists of software for the transaction process and may include hardware like cash registers, card readers, and receipt printers for in-person sales. In an online setting, the POS functionality is integrated into the website, allowing for electronic payment and receipt generation. Modern POS systems like Local Line, often cloud-based, offer additional features such as inventory management, customer data analytics, and sales reporting, making them essential tools for businesses looking to streamline operations and enhance customer service.
Does Local Line provide POS machines and hardware?
