Features of our POS

Accept Payment Methods

The free point of sale (POS) system that you can get from Shift will give your business the freedom to accept both cash and credit card purchases.

Our free POS system can accept major credit card brands. From Mastercard and Visa to Discover, you’ll be able to accept payments from major types of credit cards. Some of the main problems with other POS solutions is the inability to accept the major card brands. With this POS system, you won’t encounter that problem.

Print Receipts

This free point of sale system has the capability to connect with receipt printers to give your customer a copy of their receipt after a purchase has been made. With this capability, you won’t need a third party piece of equipment to send purchases to and then send that to a printer.

Instead, it can all be sent directly from your POS system to your printer quickly and securely, as long as there is an established internet connection present. Additionally, there is the option of ditching the paper altogether and sending a digital receipt.

Manage Inventory

Having POS software with an advanced inventory tracking system enabled for you is a huge advantage. It will give you one less thing to worry about as a business owner. 

This business management system can give you specific statistics on the inventory that you currently have in stock, as well as the sales reports & sales analytics and the number of sales on each item.

Inventory software can provide some of the most useful information necessary to you. Having the real time status of your inventory all in one place with the option to export it to other folders or files, is a useful feature that can simplify the inventory management process even more.

Manage Customers

Your POS system will be able to manage your customers through data about their preferences and past purchases. With this customer data, you can learn how to approach each customer and be able to improve customer relations by offering them products that are relevant to what they want based on previous purchases.

This software also helps you keep track of customers through loyalty programs that you might offer. Having a customer loyalty program will significantly help you with customer relationships, as you can personally contact them with exclusive offers, or even send them a discount and happy birthday message on their special day of the year.

Why you need a POS system

Need to process credit cards

A business that solely accepts cash will miss out on hundreds to thousands of dollars by not accepting credit cards, plain and simple. As cash payments continue to decrease and credit card payments continue to increase, don’t fall behind.

In order for a business to thrive and grow to its potential, it must be able to accept the most popular form of payment out there, which is what our credit card POS systems will help you do.

Helps manage Business

From customer management and employee management to inventory management, your POS system will be able to actually help you run your business. With these features, you will be able to stay organized and approach your customers in the best way possible. 

With employee management software, you will be able to simply and easily manage schedules, keep track of time stamps and even communicate with employees. It is a very useful software that can help make running and managing your business easier. 

The built in management software provided by Shift’s free POS system makes it easier than ever before to manage your business from your very own terminal.

How to know which pOS to get

What is the Best POS system?

The best POS machine and best POS software are the ones that are free. Most free POS systems can do all the basics that the more expensive POS systems do. Expensive POS systems can come with a few extra features, like accounting software, but that’s about all you’ll get extra by deciding to pay for a POS system. Even with equipment financing, the paid versions of those POS systems can get very pricey. So, how do you know which free POS software is the best?

Which Free POS Software is Best?

The best free POS software, because the systems themselves are largely the same, is the one that is connected to the best payment processor. 

The fees charged by the payment processor is where things can get very pricey for you. A cheap POS system or a free POS system won’t mean a whole lot if it’s attached to an expensive payment processor.

What is the Cheapest POS System?

The cheapest POS system, then, is a free POS system that is attached to the best cheapest processor. Many payment processing companies will try to lure you in with promises of a free point of sale system, hoping that you won’t notice how expensive their monthly fees and transaction fees are.

Why you should choose Shift

You'll be put first

With the great customer service provided by Shift Processing, you can be sure that you will be put first as the customer. Without our customers, we would have no business. 

We acknowledge that, and our dedication to our customers can be seen in how we treat them. We won’t raise your processing rates and we will keep them the same for as long as you continue to process with us.

Great Rates

Shift’s rates are altogether unbeatable. In addition to options like zero fee processing and a cash discount program, our fees are lower than the competition across the board . 

Small and startup businesses love us because the low fees allow them to grow quicker than if they were using another payment processing option like PayPal or Square’s POS. They love that our POS software for small business is the same as our software for medium to large business types, so they feel that they are being treated just as a bigger client would be treated.

Our POS system works great with businesses of all sizes. Our software for small business owners will provide a needed way to aid management, while being cost effective and allowing the business to grow.

Additionally, we work on a month to month basis, so you won’t need to sign some long and confusing contract. Instead, you’ll be with us on a monthly basis and, even better, there is no cancellation fee if you decide to process credit card payments with someone else. There’s nothing to lose!

Brick and Mortar

Shift can provide you with a way to process credit cards through a brick and mortar payments solution. Our free point of sale system with credit card processing can transform a tablet into a payment processor and cash register. If you have an iPad, for example, the POS system can act as an iPad POS software and turn your iPad into a POS system.

While there are other ways to give your business a brick and mortar payment processing solution, like a physical credit card terminal, a free point of sale system from Shift can turn a product that you may already have into a POS credit card processing system.

Retail and restaurant POS software

Shift’s credit card POS system works great for all types of businesses, including restaurants and retail stores. The POS system will help with restaurant management, similar to how it helps with inventory and customer management.

From a quick service restaurant to a fine dining establishment, your free POS software will do the job of processing credit cards, while also providing restaurant management.

Retail POS tends to be the more standard version of POS. Its main features include being able to issue refunds, inventory management and customer management. Through these features, you can get an insightful overview of your business as a whole.

High Risk Businesses

With plenty of experience processing for businesses that some processors may deem as high risk, your business can trust Shift to process for your high risk business. 

Many times, it can be tough to find a processor that is willing to take on high risk businesses. A liquor store, for example, would be deemed to be high risk retail business. 

They may find it hard to find a liquor store point of sale system because not many processors want to take the risk of something going wrong and them losing money off that account.

Many bars will even run into this issue. It's tough for them to find bar POS options available to them because a person's bar tab can remain open for a long time and sometimes even go unpaid.

While other processors may hold your funds or cancel your merchant account altogether, Shift has the experience that you want out of a high risk credit card processor.

Alternative POS Options


Shift offers an eCommerce platform if you decide that you want to take your business online. If you already have an online store through an existing eCommerce option, like PayPal, but you are processing more than $3,000 per month in credit card purchases, you may need to contact an actual processor that can offer better rates than something like a PayPal account.

If you want an eCommerce platform, you may need shopping cart software as well. Shopping cart software allows your customers to select individual products and then purchase them on a web browser. Most eCommerce providers will have this software built into their eCommerce product.

Mobile POS

A mobile point of sale is a good option for smaller businesses or businesses on the go. It can essentially turn a mobile device into a cash register. For example, a food truck would find great use out of mobile point of sale, as they don’t have a concrete brick and mortar store and cover multiple locations.

Some that want to process purchases on their mobile devices might prefer to use a mobile POS app. However, many times those apps can have high convenience fees or give off a less professional vibe to customers.

You shouldn’t be wasting your hard earned money on expensive equipment or locked into a long-term contract. Many business owners contact us looking to lower their fees and take advantage of our POS system and free POS software for small businesses. 

Getting a free point of sale system from Shift has the potential to completely transform your business.
