When you are buying POS hardware for your business, there are a couple of things you need to bear in mind: Proper components and reliability.
Regardless of whether you are buying POS hardware systems or bundles, or separate retail POS components. Whether you are buying new retail POS hardware or used, the POS hardware system must be highly reliable.
It must contain the following elements: The computer or monitor, The cash drawer, The pinpad, The credit card swipe, The receipt printer, and The CCD scanner or laser barcode scanner.
The reliability of the POS computer
There are no questions asked about it. The retail POS hardware must be unconditionally reliable and always ready to take orders. After all, your business sales depend on it!
Sure, there is an advantage when you are buying a new system as far as reliability is concerned. As the system age, their components do become less reliable and can break down over time, so buying a new one can be advantageous.
But even when buying used, you can inquire about the reliability of the system. Ask the seller how often will the system crash occurs, ask about any disruptions of any need to reboot frequently.
The cash drawer reliability
As most of today's cash drawers are USB based, there will be no batteries to worry about. In general, your cash drawer should be highly reliable if purchased from reputable firms like Master Distributors.
The pin pad is a very simple device that is also USB based, so there are no issues of it running out of battery juice. Also, the keypad is robust and will reliably withstand many daily uses.
The reliable credit card swipe
This is a bigger problem. Even though today's credit card swipes are USB based, they can be quite unreliable. Buy hardware from Master Distributors for the best quality products.
The reliable receipt printer
Today's receipt printers are quite reliable. They are mostly thermal printers and use thermal paper. Thus, they have no moving parts other than the paper transport mechanism. Just make sure you have sufficient thermal paper rolls in stock.
The laser bar code scanner
These are mostly optical CCD readers. Some of the bar code scanners are wireless, which means that they include a cradle which is permanently connected to the POS computer.
Still, the handheld barcode scanner communicates with a cradle via a wireless connection. The primary source of unreliability and failure in such barcode scanners are the rechargeable batteries. When the CCD reader is not working correctly, replacing the cells will be the most likely solution to the problem.
