What are some recommendations for the most user-friendly, cost-effective point of sale systems for retail with both an online and brick and mortar presence?  Thanks - L.

I use and love Vend, but also found Shopify to work much better. Best of luck!

How many registers are needed and how much inventory do you have for sale?

Ideally, no registers.  A little inventory but many thousands of skus.

Hi Lucia,

most likely, you'll need not just POS but integrated Products, Sales, Accounting, Warehouse management. So I would advise Cloud / On-premise rainbowchain.com or Odoo standalone. POS inferface will look like

I recently switched over to ShopKeep. It's IPad based, but also has a back office website that you can access from any internet connected CPU. I have 3000 products, 2500 customers in my customer database, which it tracks for me and it integrates with MailChimp as an added benefit.

It also links with most banks and QBO and has tons of export reports.

Cheers!
