Frequently Asked Question

ePOS vs. cash register: What's the difference?

An ePOS does much more than just ring up sales. With a fully integrated solution, you can keep track of your customers and their preferences, process purchase orders, create custom reports, integrate eCommerce and delivery and much more, right from your ePOS. Not to mention, because of Lightspeed's cloud-based capabilities, you can cut the hardware cord and take your business anywhere.

Can I turn my iPad into a cash register?

Merchants can use either a desktop computer, laptop, tablet, or smartphone—any device with internet connectivity. Many retailers and restaurateurs opt to use tablets, like an iPad, with a stand that turns them into a countertop device. The advantage of this setup is in its inherent flexibility. So whether you have your own or use a Lightspeed iPad, you'll have everything you need to create a personalised experience for your customers right in the palm of your hand. They can request more information about a product or menu item, make payments and join your loyalty program on the spot thanks to a mobile, connected workflow.

Is working a cash register easy?

Our cloud-based iPad ePOS system is easy to learn and intuitive to use. The modern interface cuts down on employee training time, empowers staff and ultimately enhances the customer experience. Built for the needs of serious restaurateurs and retailers, you can improve turnover with features designed to boost efficiency, access your inventory levels in seconds to facilitate upselling and product recommendations and limit long lines and wait times.
