A point of sale system is typically in a retail environment where transactions with customers occur. Point of sale systems include a monitor, barcode scanner, receipt printer, cash drawer and computer with other peripherals attached as needed such as pole displays, debit pin pads or magnetic card readers. A good point of sale system will run non-hardware dependent software such as GratisPOS with easy to use features. Point of sale systems are used in a variety of environments including supermarkets, clothing stores, liquor store, cigar shop, convenience store, gas station, fast food restaurant, quick service restaurant, table service restaurant, Japanese restaurant, Chinese restaurant, bar and pub, night club hotels, stadiums, and casinos, as well as almost any type of retail point of sale establishment.
