If you have a small business where you sell products to customers on a daily basis, then a cash register will come in handy. This is especially the case with retail stores. You need a cash register to take care of all your cash related transactions. However, things have changed in the modern business days. People prefer other methods of payments other than cash. Since handling cash is risky, the use of credit cards and online payments has become a priority for most people. Businesses have to accommodate such changes thus by investing in the right technology.

The POS systems introduce a rather reliable way which provides a wide variety of payment options for your customers. A cash register can work in the same way and have an interface that equips your business to accept payment options that will satisfy the taste of your customers. It can be frustrating to a customer when their favorite retail store only accepts a single method of payment. It prompts them to switch to a store that is convenient to them and thus lost revenue on your part. Before you can buy a cash register for your business, you have to know how it works and the features it comes with. Some of the things to consider include: 

The inventory tracking features

It should make it easy for you to track the inventory you have and what you need to meet demand. For businesses with a large inventory to manage, the POS systems will play well with the needs of the business. They help track inventory in real time to give you more time to concentrate on customer service.

The size of your retail business

A large business or has the potential to grow in future should have a cash register with numerous features. It should be upgradable to help you upgrade in future when the business grows. It will thus help you operate more effectively in future. If the business is already large, you can customize the cash register to satisfy the current needs of your business.

The security needs of your business

Cash management will require security at all times. You want to keep cash in the drawer safe from unauthorized persons. Choose cash registers with a tight security in terms of access by those are not authorized. You can decide to keep separate the cash and checks while you store the large sums in a separate and more secure drawer. This will help you to keep track of how much you have and what is available in the drawers. The drawers should have a lock for security purposes.

The receipt printing features

You have to go for a cash register that can print receipts for your customers. Most POS systems will have an electronic paper trail, but also there is an option for printing the receipts for your customers. Choose those cash registers that have such a feature to encourage accountability and proper business practices. Although the cash register will record what is sold and what is left in the store in the form of inventory, you have to produce receipts for your customers for convenience in the case they return the goods.

I have two less modern registers in my house that became obsolete while I was still using them. When I started selling exclusively online I no longer needed them because all transactions were done on line.
