Hi everyone,

I'm looking for advice on point-of sale-systems. Anyone have something you really like? We're a DIY bike repair shop, with 1-2 employees plus sometimes volunteers on cash. We sell used bikes, new and used parts, merch, stand time, memberships, and sometimes event tickets. We've been using Square, and find it clunky and insufficient. Some specific issues we'd love to rectify:
  • No option for layaways
  • Cost-price inputting is not versatile
  • No multiple login options (so we can recall who rang through a particular sale)
  • No easy way to remove tax for Indigenous customers (we're Canadian)
  • Gift cards are a pain
Any advice much appreciated!
