Frequently asked questions
What is a point of sale (POS)?
A point of sale is a way to accepting payment and recording a sale with the person in front of you (or on the phone). It allows you to accept payments via many different means, e.g. cash, card, gift voucher or on an account. An online POS such as Airsquare POS, can connect to your online store, therefore making it easier to manage stock and orders in one place.

What about the hardware for the POS?
Airsquare works on any web browser so you can use it on your existing laptop or desktop. It also works on iOS (iPads) and Android tablets. It will work with any barcode scanner you can connect to your computer/tablet. We support Star thermal printers on iOS / Android, and any printer you can connect to your computer/tablet (thermal or A4). If you use Stripe terminal, Airsquare POS talks to the reader so you don't need to enter the amount manually. This looks more professional, saves time and removes double entry errors. However, you can use any card terminal you like (In which case, our POS doesn't automatically push the price to the card terminal, you just record the payment as 'External card').
