Food and beverage FAQs

Point of sale software and hardware make up a POS system and are used by quick-service restaurants, full-service restaurants, bars, venues and arenas to take orders, accept payments, monitor inventory management and oversee employees.

Must-have features include omnichannel functionality, marketing and loyalty integrations, order management with a touchscreen and kitchen display system (KDS), tools to empower employees and the ability to accept popular, convenient payment methods.

Having a restaurant point of sale system — a comprehensive restaurant management system that handles transactions, improves service speed and accelerates growth — is nearly non-negotiable. With a POS system and POS hardware, you can complete transactions, identify popular menu items, win customers, create staff schedules and automate repetitive tasks and reduce errors. In short, the benefits are almost endless.

Hard-working merchants like you deserve to be treated with radical transparency and fairness. But not all payment processors are created equal. To help you tell the difference between a provider who values your business and one that’s all talk, we created the Merchant Bill of Rights — so you can pick a payment processor that has your best interest in mind.
