What is the best EPOS system for a bookstore?

Bookstores need a point of sale system that not only takes and tracks payments but makes all aspects of trade easier and helps them stay competitive in their market.

To begin with, all the best POS systems are cloud-based. Systems that use a cloud are more secure, and protect business data including inventory, customer records, and sales reports the event of hardware failure. Furthermore, managers can access, monitor and manage their business remotely, providing an easy way to keep an eye on trade, even when you have to go off-site!

The best bookstore POS systems should be packed with features for easy product management, so you can update prices, run promotions, and view reports on products, staff and inventory that help you make better decisions for your business.

Inventory is particularly important for bookstores. If a customer requests a title, you'll want to be able to check its availability as quickly as possible, which a good POS allows you to do! Search features, detailed inventory records and easy purchase orders are therefore essential for a bookstore POS. 

With Epos Now POS integrations, retailers can also adapt their system, finding bespoke solutions to the difficulties each store faces. Apps such as Mailchimp help you reach new customers (and stay in touch with them), while Loyalzoo and in-house loyalty apps help you keep the ones you already have. Epos Now has also partnered with accounting software providers such as Quickbooks making it easy to export all financial data and stay on top of taxes.

What POS integrations should a bookstore use?

Bookstores typically require three key integrations in order to remain competitive.

First, they can partner with an ecommerce platform like Shopify to offer online sales and build a worldwide customer base that helps boost sales and offer customers more options.

Next, bookstores are in a competitive industry, so connecting with customers before they come in the door can help ensure they think of your store first. Marketing options such as Mailchimp can help keep your customers closer.

Finally, accounting programs like Sage or Xero can integrate with your Epos Now POS and make managing your finances much easier, allowing you to focus on your books and customers.

Does Epos Now let you set up surcharging?

Yes! Our surcharge feature is your ticket to saving big by offsetting card charges.

It’s easy to set up in your Epos Now Back Office and sync across your point of sale system and card machines - all you need is to be signed up to Epos Now Payments.

Then, with each sale, a receipt will print with the surcharge value shown, and you'll even spot the surcharge value in your Back Office reports.

Learn more about surcharging in our handy blog.
