Each of our picks offers a unique take on the free POS system. But the fact that there even are free POS systems begs the question: Why wouldn’t everyone just want to go the free route?
The main reason to take the free route is to get as much functionality as you can without paying a dime. Unfortunately, there’s only so far a free service can take you. If you have consistent and reasonably high-volume processing needs, you’ll probably want to avoid free options.
But, if you’re just getting started in point-of-sale and don’t have a lot of leftover budget each month, you may want to look at free options. You can actually get quite a lot of features without paying a dime.
