Is it possible to install POS software on a PC?

Yes indeed, there are many software solutions which can help you turn your PC into a real cash register or till.

Some are downloadable for free on the internet, others have to be purchased from specialised software publishers. Price depends on included features and services, and therefore can be extremely variable, from under £20 to hundreds of pounds for the most advanced software (sometimes including preliminary user training and maintenance follow-up).

In order to work like a real till, the PC needs to be equipped with peripherals. The whole system then becomes known as a POS system or Point of Sale system. Depending on your needs, a touchscreen, barcode scanner, and also a printer in order to print receipts can be added, among many possible additions.

Several touchscreen solution packages include the necessary gear, but there’s also the option to turn an iPad into a till.
