Free Point of Sale

The Hidden Costs of Free Point of Sale Hardware

In the competitive world of point of sale (POS) systems, the promise of free hardware can be tempting. However, it’s crucial to look beyond the surface. Free hardware often comes with hidden costs, such as higher software fees, increased payment processing rates, and long-term contracts that can lock you into paying more over time. For instance, while one provider might offer free hardware, they could charge significantly more for their software, quickly eroding any initial savings. Similarly, higher payment processing rates can add up, especially for high-volume businesses, leading to substantial additional costs each year. Understanding these hidden expenses is essential for making an informed decision and choosing a POS provider that truly offers value without surprises.
