    Anybody using Revel, Vend or similar?

    I have a need for one register, one location POS. Needs to tie in to a price calculating food scale.

    3rd interested.

    We use a Moneris POS, which is good... But the hardware (tower) provided is useless.

    the most common software is square, which is easy to use but has higher rates and can't handle multi-purchase refunds well. what's more important to you - lowest possible rates, ease of use, appearance, flexibility? do you plan on doing a lot of manual entry purchases (over the phone purchases), or is it all in person?

    Teger-

    Square is more at taking payments/processing. I might for example use Square in combination with Vend, Revel etc...

    It's the full point-of-sale I'm interested in, including inventory, staff log-in, etc.

    :)


    Revel has added a food scale since I last looked into it so that's important.

    There's also mPowa, though the device hasn't been released yet.
