Pet stores often carry a variety of products types while also providing various pet services and even making live animal sales. According to the American Pet Products Association, “In 2018, $72.56 billion was spent on pets in the U.S. and that number is estimated to grow to $75.38 billion in 2019.” As a result, the process of managing sales can become complex for your merchants. Choosing a POS system suited for the pet industry is vital to ensuring fast and efficient customer service, keeping track of inventory, and tracking sales so they can make more informed business decisions.
Regardless of whether your merchants’ pet shop sells accessories, pet food, or even pet clothing, it is important to make sure that they are able to accurately manage their inventory. Otherwise, your merchants’ store could run out of popular items or become overstocked with items that do not sell quickly. An inventory management feature on their pet store POS will help merchants keep track of all of the inventory in their store so that they can spend more time focusing on their customers. This eliminates the need to perform inventory checks manually, thus saving your merchants and their staff time that could be better devoted to improved customer service.
When customers come into your merchants’ pet shop, they want to pick up the items they need without waiting in a long time. The same is also true of customers who have booked appointments for services, such as grooming. A pet store POS will give them the ability to quickly ring up everything from treats to toys and even live animal purchases. Swipe credit and debit cards and then print receipts with ease using their point-of-sale system. Customers are able to get in and out of your merchants’ store quickly without waiting in line, ensuring a more pleasant checkout experience.
