FAQ

If you'd like to know how else Epos Now can help your charity, get in touch or read our frequently asked questions below.

What is a POS system?

A point of sale, or POS, system is a specialised computer that helps handle the day-to-day running of retail and hospitality businesses. These systems generally consist of a POS terminal and cloud-based business software that keeps your information safe and secure.

The function of a POS system is to simplify business admin, conduct transactions, and process sales reports. Good POS systems, like the Epos Now Complete Solution, feature a wide range of functions like inventory management tools and payment processing services.

What is the best POS system for charity shops?

The best POS for non-profit and charity shop businesses is a system that offers fast service, a wide range of functions and features, and gives you complete control of your charity retail or hospitality shop. You may also benefit from using a mobile POS system that allows you to take payments and check your Back Office from anywhere!

Cloud-based systems like Epos Now offer greater flexibility in operating your charity. With Epos Now Payments, you can accept multiple payment types with in-person transactions, such as mobile payments, credit and debit cards, and digital wallets.

Expanding your operation with online revenue streams? With an Epos Now POS solution, you can easily conduct online transactions, offer discounted rates, and even add loyalty schemes.

What integrations should I have for my charity shop POS system?

In the complex environments faced by charity retailers or hospitality businesses, you need integrations that will simplify your day-to-day operations and let you focus on your fundraising events and your mission.

First, your best option is to synchronise your charity retail POS system with one of our accountancy apps. This will streamline your financial admin and give you a better overview of your ingoings and outgoings. QuickBooks or Xero are excellent options, with millions of combined users worldwide.

Then, a staff management app will help you handle the volunteers and staff members you coordinate daily. To get the most out of your volunteers and team members, ensuring their skills are best applied in the right place is important. For instance, if you operate a charity cafe, your kitchen staff shouldn't be assigned to sort through financial donations. Deputy is a great team management app that's sure to help you.

After that, our AppStore is your oyster! Our award-winning app suite covers almost everything you could need from your POS system. Loyalty schemes are helpful in that they encourage people to visit your shop again and again. Digital receipt integrations can help cut down on paper usage and costs. In the end, it's up to you to decide what would work best for your charity but our knowledgeable team are ready and waiting to assist you.

Does Epos Now POS systems accept donations for my charity?

Unfortunately, collecting donations natively through your Epos Now system is unavailable. You may be able to integrate your existing collection system through our open API application. Be sure to contact our team to talk through your options.
