Frequently asked questions

If you'd like to know anything else about how Epos Now can help your business, request a callback, or read our frequently asked questions.

 

What is the best POS system for a bookstore?

Bookstores need a POS system that can manage and organize a diverse inventory, accept all payment types, and connect to leading ecommerce and loyalty platforms. The best bookstore POS systems will also have online connectivity, with cloud storage and 24/7 access, so business owners can keep on top of their store from any location and at any time.

What POS integrations should a bookstore use?

Bookstores typically require three key integrations in order to remain competitive. Firstly, they should partner with an ecommerce platform to sell books online and build a worldwide customer base.

Next, a bookstore should connect with email marketing platforms like Mailchimp to keep in contact with customers.

Finally, they should link their POS with accounting software to easily manage bookkeeping and financial reporting.

What is the best inventory software for retailers?

With an Epos Now POS system, there’s no need for separate inventory management software or spreadsheets as all of your inventory is stored in your back office system and automated, no matter how many books you've got on your shelves.

You can also set up low-stock alerts so that you know which books to re-order after you sell them and avoid any bare-shelf nightmares!

Does Epos Now let you set up cash discounting?

Yes! Our cash discounting feature allows you to offer discounts to cash-paying customers - key to attracting more customers and saving your business money on payment processing fees.

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 and click a few buttons!

Now that you've enabled cash discounting, here's a quick rundown of the key features you can use in your Epos Now point of sale system:

  • Display the discounted cash price on the tender for staff reference.
  • Process the list price on the card terminal when a card payment is selected.
  • Apply the preset discount to the total when a cash payment is chosen.
  • Ensure receipts highlight the savings from the cash discount.
  • Cash discounts will be shown in your Back Office reports for easy tracking and analysis.
