ABOUT POINT OF SALE (POS) AND PAYMENT PROCESSING

Point of sale (POS) is the place where retail transactions are completed; where payment is exchanged for goods or services. POS is used in many retail industries and many require unique customizations to the hardware and software in order to accommodate their transactions. POS features include scanners, manual and electronic cash drawers, scales, EFTPOS terminals, handheld scanners, touch screens, and many other options. Modern POS systems often act as more than just a system to process transactions by providing inventory management, warehousing, CRM, financials, and more.

In addition to standard on-premise POS systems, modern POS software can be delivered from the cloud in the software as a service (SaaS) model. Cloud-based POS systems can be compatible with traditional POS hardware in addition to mobile devices such as iPads, iPhones, Android devices, and more. Cloud-based POS offers the ability to access data from anywhere there is an internet connection and normally offers faster setup due to it being run remotely.

Payment processing is done by payment processors which are often third party companies hired by a merchant to handle credit card transactions. Payment processors are broken down into two types: front-end and back-end. The front-end processors perform card associations, authorizations, and settlement services while back-end processors accept settlements from front-end processes and move money from issuing banks to merchant banks.

Modern payment processing is usually provided in the software as a service (SaaS) model, giving merchants a single simple electronic portal that allows them to process payments in various forms including recurring payments, web payments, checks, and more all in the same place.
