QuickBooks Point of Sale is the efficient, easy-to-use Point of Sale system that integrates seamlessly with your QuickBooks financial software.
Rely on Intuit QuickBooks POS 18.0 (2018) for easy access to the information that matters most. Intuit QuickBooks POS for retail stores is designed to be cost effective, easy to use and a great way to boost your bottom line. View your business at a glance with inventory, sales and customer data at your fingertips.
When you accept a payment, process a sale or update your inventory, QuickBooks POS updates your books helping you save time, effort, and potential errors. Plus, you’ll be better prepared at tax time.
At the end of your sales day, you can have your Point of Sale sync with QuickBooks Desktop (sold separately) reducing double entries so you save on both time and errors. QuickBooks Desktop Point of Sale helps you keep your books updated all year long so that when tax time comes, you’ll be ready.
Take CRM to the next level. See customer history like balance owed, credit available, loyalty program status, and special offers at the top of your transaction screen every time you ring up a sale.
Your inventory is updated with every transaction giving you a sightline into what’s hot and what’s not. You’ll learn what your bestsellers are, what needs to be reordered, and what you could do without.
You’ll see in black and white exactly what your customers are buying- or not buying- so you can adjust your product mix to better serve them.
Ring sales the way you want to: Use an optional barcode scanner, or enter item names or numbers manually using a PC or tablet. You can also start the CRM process right at the point of sale, offering discounts and adding customer information so you can get to know your customers better.
Authorize, process and record credit or debit card sales in just one step in your QuickBooks POS system. With no need to enter information twice, your accuracy is greatly increased. You can handle transactions more quickly and move customers through check-out more efficiently!
QuickBooks Point of Sale is also EMV ready and designed to support payment technology for greater data protection.
