Global Wireless POS Terminals Market 2015-2019

About POS terminal

A POS refers to a system or a combination of systems that are used to facilitate easy and faster checkout for customers at various outlets. A standard POS system consists of a computer, monitor, cash drawer, receipt printer, barcode scanner, POS software, weight scale, and sometimes credit and debit card readers. A POS terminal is used for conducting sales and is used by retailers to manage information related to their inventory, customers, and cash flows. It is mainly used for retail sales management. A POS terminal not only improves the shopping experience for customers by reducing the processing time for payments but also helps them obtain and centralize information about sales of the respective products.

A POS terminal is used to process card payments at several sectors such as retail (supermarket, hypermarket, specialty stores, gas stations, drugstores, and mass merchandise stores) and hospitality (restaurants, hotels, takeaways, and pubs). A POS terminal performs the following functions:

  • Reads the information off a customer’s credit/debit card
  • Checks the funds status in a customer’s bank account
  • Transfers funds from a customer’s account to a seller’s account
  • Records the transaction
  • Prints the receipt of transaction
There are two types of POS terminal: fixed line POS and wireless POS.
