iPad Point of Sale

Paid vs. Free Point of Sale for iPad

While FreePOS offers almost all the features that are available in posIPOS, there are some key differences that should be taken into consideration when choosing the best iPad point of sale for your restaurant or retail store.
To use the FreePOS free iPad POS, all you need to do is install the free app from Apple App Store on one or more iPads, and configure your business and inventory directly on the iPad, from within the app.
If you want to use posIPOS, you first need to create a free posIPOS account and configure your business and inventory from within this web account, and then install and run the posIPOS app on one or more iPads.
